Introduction


With its welcoming façade and beautiful attention to detail, this home is sure to impress. High ceilings and abundant natural light create a tranquil, airy feel both upstairs and down. Elegant moldings, plantation shutters, and rich granite are found throughout, creating unity as you move from space to space. The open floor plan thoughtfully provides multiple gathering areas that are distinct yet flow easily together, adding to the spacious feel. As you enter the home you are immediately awestruck by the gorgeous twin staircases that curve gracefully up to the second floor. Stacked formal rooms on the main floor are open to the stairs, with your gourmet kitchen and inviting great room just beyond. In the great room, your fireplace is flanked by stacked stone that extends two stories to the ceiling, creating a dramatic focal point. Also on the first floor are a spacious study and an enormous master suite. Upstairs you will find four additional bedrooms plus a game room, media room, loft, and a versatile bonus room. This space is perfect for use as an exercise room, craft area, or perhaps a second home office if more than one person works remotely. On pleasant Texas days you will find it hard to stay indoors when your incredible back yard is calling. An extensive covered patio with outdoor dining, seating, and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen will beckon you to spend time outside. Beyond the patio, your sparkling lagoon pool invites you to jump in to beat the heat, even offering an outdoor shower with hot water when you are done. Whether you choose to spend time indoors or outside, this impressive home provides a welcome retreat from the cares of the day.


First Floor


Gorgeous front doors open to a stunning foyer, with two curved hardwood staircases that draw your eye up to the second floor balcony and highlight the soaring ceilings. Beautiful moldings and curved walls enhance the sense of elegance and grandeur. At your feet marble-look tile extends in all directions, offering a visual connection between spaces in this open, flowing floor plan.


To your right your open study is filled with natural light from huge windows to the front and side. Plantation shutters provide privacy and light control, and are repeated throughout both floors of your home for pleasing continuity. Beautiful crown molding adds a polished finish. An adjacent powder bath allows this space to be enclosed as a first-floor guest suite if that better suits your needs.


Across the entry from your study, your formal living room welcomes guests with inviting seating and a gracious atmosphere. Wainscoting and crown molding dress the walls both here and in your dining room, which flows seamlessly toward the back of your home. Windows at the front of your living room and along the sides of both formal rooms spill natural light, adding to the open, airy feel. Just past the dining room, your kitchen is directly on the other side of the wall for easy entertaining.


Back at your entry, passing between the curved stairs leads you underneath a balcony and into the heart of your home. Here your great room, kitchen, and casual dining flow easily into one another to create a well-appointed, relaxing space. You first enter your great room, where a dramatic chandelier provides sparkling light. In the corner, your cast stone fireplace glows warmly, beautifully accented with cut stone that extends clear to the soaring two-story ceiling. Windows along the back wall offer visual connections with your outdoor living space while an adjacent door provides easy patio access.


Opposite your fireplace, a change in ceiling height creates a cozy atmosphere in your kitchen and casual eating area. Gorgeous exotic granite beautifully unites the gray cabinetry, marble-look floors, and stone backsplash into one stunning cohesive space. Stainless appliances and a 6-burner gas stove add practicality and functionality, while a farmhouse sink and beautiful moldings atop the cabinets add elegance. Glass-fronted upper cabinets keep the look airy, with lighting both above and below the cabinets. At the end of your kitchen, your casual dining table is nestled in a corner with long window seats on two sides. Cozy cushions invite you relax and the plantation shutters open to reveal wonderful views of your pool and patio. On beautiful Texas days a door between your table and your great room provides easy outdoor access.


From your great room, your master suite is situated on the other side of your fireplace, secluded from your formal entertaining spaces and the bustle of a busy kitchen. Spacious and tranquil, the master bedroom has loads of natural light and a beautiful coffered ceiling. A window seat offers a charming spot to sit with a book or cup of coffee as you enjoy backyard views, or perhaps a comfy chair is calling your name. Generously sized, this bedroom will easily accommodate a king-sized bed with space left over for a sitting area or desk.


Double doors connect your master bedroom to the master bath. Marble-look floors create a wonderful foundation for crisp white cabinetry with dark granite counters and hardware. Separate vanities are framed with elegant millwork, and the dark counters are echoed in the accent tile around the soaker tub. Behind the tub, frameless glass shows off your luxurious double shower with rainshower head, hand-held sprayer, and body sprays. Additional granite forms a bench inside the shower and is echoed at the window seat beside one of the vanities. A large privacy window brings in loads of natural light. From the bathroom, one door leads to your spacious master closet while the other connects directly to laundry room for wonderful convenience.


Your laundry room is cleverly tucked under one of the staircases but does not at all feel cramped. Cabinetry above your washer offers plenty of storage for cleaning supplies and a deep understair closet provides storage. An additional door connects directly to the master bath, making it a snap to fill your closet with clean clothes.


Your home boasts three garage spaces. A doorway connects your single and double garages and your double garage connects to your home.


Second Floor


The gorgeous curved stair brings you to an impressive landing that overlooks both your stunning entry toward the front and your great room toward the back. The second floor is divided, with your game, media, and exercise rooms situated on the east side of your home. There is also a full bath and one bedroom. Three more bedrooms are tucked quietly on the west side of your home, away from the bustle of the public spaces. Beautiful balcony rails continue along both halls, maintaining a wonderful open feel and allowing light to flow throughout.


Turning to your left, your game room awaits. A wonderful window seat extends the length of the exterior wall, providing a great spot to sit while waiting for your turn at ping pong or air hockey. Clever storage underneath the window seat ensures that your game room is easily cleaned up at the end of the day. In the front corner of the room, a built-in desk offers the perfect spot to tackle homework while remaining connected to the rest of the family.


Opposite the built-in desk, a lovely loft area connects your game room to the front bedroom. A front window splashes sunlight into the space while a balcony rail keeps the other side open to your entry. This charming loft would serve equally well as an extension of your game or as a cozy sitting or reading nook. It’s a wonderful space!


Continuing through the game room, past the desk and loft, two steps down bring you into your media room. Rich paint lends a cozy feel and there is plenty of room for everyone in this generously sized space. A combination of an overhead fixture and wall sconces offers layers of lighting for the perfect movie-watching experience.


At the end of the media room is a bonus room. Opening the door you find another good sized room filled with natural light from three front windows. This versatile space would serve equally well as an exercise room, a craft room, or even a second home office if needed.


Still on the east side, but moving from the game room to the back of your home, there is a beautiful full bath with a tiled tub and a granite vanity. This bath has both hall access for guests and private access to the one bedroom tucked on this side of your home. Filled with natural light, this bedroom is spacious and comfortable with a walk-in closet.


Back at the second-floor landing, turning to your right leads you to three additional bedrooms. All are large with plenty of space to relax in comfort. The back bedroom includes hall access to a full bath with a tiled tub and granite vanity. The middle and front bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath, where a high window brightens the space with natural light. In addition to a hall door, the front bedroom also has a door that opens to the loft, allowing quick access to the game and media rooms.


Exterior


Set behind a green lawn and beautiful landscaping, this stately home exudes warmth with its brick and stone exterior. Gorgeous details such as richly stained corbels, charming shutters, and shingled awnings give a hint of the elegance you will find inside. At the side-entry garage, deeply stained cedar doors echo the rich tones found in the stunning iron and glass front door at your home’s entry. From the small details to the big picture, this home is one you’ll be proud to call your own.


In your back yard, extensive hardscaping in stained concrete forms an amazing covered patio. String lights twinkle in the evenings, creating a wonderful ambiance for both your outdoor dining and casual seating areas. Flagstone dresses your incredible outdoor kitchen, which boasts a corner sink and miles of counter space to serve up a feast. A built-in grill, four side burners, outdoor oven, microwave, and refrigerator all ensure that you have everything you need to satisfy friends and family. Beyond the covered patio, stained concrete continues, surrounding your sparkling lagoon pool with plenty of room for lounge chairs and sunny bistro tables. Still under warranty, this pool is heated and boasts two water jets as well as wireless controls. Adjacent to the pool an enclosed outdoor shower with hot water provides a convenient place to rinse off. A raised bed along the back fence is ready for the landscaping of your choice, allowing you to make this fabulous outdoor space your own.
