This incredible property is tucked at the end of a secluded culdesac in the quiet Forest Creek Estates neighborhood. Situated on 2.61 acres, your home is nestled among mature trees and beautiful landscaping that creates a tranquil country feel yet keep you close to all the amenities the city has to offer. Timeless finishes are found throughout, including extensive crown molding, skip-troweled walls, picture frame molding on solid core doors, and updated lighting. Warm hardwoods and elegant plantation shutters add a luxurious touch to both floors. Both your master and guest suites are downstairs, as is your main living area, study, and one of the game rooms. Multiple sets of French doors along the back of your home extend your entertaining space to the large covered patio with outdoor seating and a dining area near your outdoor kitchen. Stepping down to your pool deck, your beautifully tiled heated spa trickles down a rock-lined creek to your lagoon pool. Several stone paths wander among the trees in your gorgeous back yard, leading you to a fire pit, an arbor, and a playhouse for the kids. Built in 2006, your guest home offers an additional two bedrooms, as well as a kitchen and living area. Thoughtfully chosen finishes echo the main house for a lovely continuity between the two.

First Floor

Stepping through the curved front door you enter a warm and welcoming space. Crown molding circles the lofty ceiling and a striking chandelier glows softly. To your right the dining room table is beautifully set. Stemware sparkles in the light filtering through the large front window. Overhead the tin-look ceiling is framed in crown molding while beneath your feet hardwood floors gleam. Opposite the window an archway connects you to your wine cellar, where a gorgeous wrought iron gate opens to fully shelved space that includes a wine cooler and a small recessed cupboard. Just past the wine room is your kitchen, making it easy to get delicious dishes to the table.

From the entry, continuing straight into your home brings you to the spacious main living area, where your living room, kitchen, and breakfast nook form an inviting space with loads of natural light and cozy beamed ceilings. Windows and French doors along the back wall pour in light and offer connections to your patio and backyard oasis. A corner fireplace, dressed in stone, crackles invitingly and wood floors echo the window trim and tie in with the natural views. Opposite the fireplace, your kitchen is beautifully dressed in antiqued cabinetry, granite counters, and a tumbled travertine backsplash. A center island offers additional storage and prep space while a peninsula island is highlighted by gorgeous clear glass pendant lights that preserve the backyard vistas. A full suite of stainless appliances includes a Thermador microwave, gas cooktop, and double wall ovens.

On the other side of your peninsula island, your long breakfast table is situated against windows overlooking your lagoon pool. A dramatic linear candle chandelier provides additional light to this sunny space. Double doors at the end of your table open to your downstairs game room.

On the other side of your home, your study and master bedroom are both located just off the living room. Your study is beautifully finished with built-ins, plantation shutters, and a shelved closet that keeps extra supplies neatly tucked out of sight. Wood wainscoting and crown molding add an elegant polish to this wonderful space.

Moving past your study, your master bedroom is tucked into the back corner of your home. Generous proportions, a lovely tray ceiling, and loads of natural light create a tranquil spot where you can relax at the end of the day. Crisp white molding frames your large corner windows, where cozy chairs invite you to rest and enjoy views of your park-like back yard. Your master bath is equally luxurious, with calm, soothing paint and superb finishes that set this bath apart. A barrel-vaulted ceiling runs the length of the room and is framed with elegant crown molding. At one end your deep tub is tucked under a high arch that includes a stunning tile mosaic and recessed shelving on either side. That tile is echoed along the side wall in the backsplash above both sinks, creating continuity in this space. Opposite the vanities your walk-in double shower has a luxurious heated towel bar and lovely stained glass window just outside of it. At the other end of the barrel vault, pocket doors in frosted glass open to a fantastic exercise room. Light pours through French doors and floor-to-ceiling windows on three walls, offering wonderful connections with your backyard retreat. A large mirrored wall and high ceilings add to the spacious feel of this truly inspiring place.

Also off your master bath is a generous custom closet, well-appointed with glass-paneled hanging space and drawers topped with stone counters. A pocket door connects to a secondary closet with plenty of open shelving and additional drawers to keep you organized.

Your guest suite is also on the first floor, privately located on the opposite side of your home. Beautiful bay windows and tall ceilings give a spacious welcome to your guests, while the marble topped vanity, pretty chandelier, and free-standing tub in the private ensuite will pamper them during their stay. Shorter-term guests will love the powder bath, adjacent to your kitchen and game room, with its unique pedestal sink and lovely tile.

At the end of your breakfast area, double doors open to your downstairs game room. This charming space is large and filled with light from windows on three walls. Wood trim on the ceiling echoes the window trim and the unique ceiling fan is sure to start a conversation. Beneath your feet the beautiful wood floor has inlaid tile. A corner fireplace adds a cozy feel and welcome warmth on cooler days. Generously sized, this room is ready for any activity you desire. A wonderful built-in cabinet with clear leaded glass and beadboard backing keeps games and accessories neatly stored when not in use.

A spacious laundry room completes your home’s first floor with a utility sink and plenty of cabinetry and cubbies to keep things neat. An exterior door opens to the front of your home while an adjacent door accesses your four-car garage.

Second Floor

Ascending the stair, you find yourself in a cozy landing with bookcases and cabinetry. A door on your right opens to a comfortable bedroom with wood floors, a tray ceiling, and a private ensuite with a tiled tub. Opposite the bedroom another door opens to walk-in attic space, while straight ahead French doors open to a spacious game room with paneled wainscoting and vaulted ceilings adorned with beams and a tin-look ceiling. From the game room there is access to a hall bath with a walk-in shower, as well as access to your second bedroom. This bedroom also enjoys a vaulted ceiling and has large windows to keep it bright and welcoming. Hardwood floors, a large closet, and a private door to the hall bath complete this space.

Guest Home

Your guest home is situated opposite your main home’s garage so that parking is easily shared between the two. A beautiful curved door grants entry to your guest home, which boasts high ceilings, tall doorways, and finishes that echo the main house so there is a wonderful continuity between them.

As you step into the entry of your guest home, you are greeted by hardwood floors, crown molding, and a beautiful chandelier. To your left is the living area, comprised of your eat-in kitchen and inviting living room. Beamed ceilings and tall baseboards extend throughout both spaces, which flow easily into one another. Your kitchen is defined by light cabinetry with an antique glaze. Textured glass in several cabinets maintains an open feel while a stone backsplash and farmhouse sink add charm. Appliances include a range, microwave, refrigerator, and drawer dishwasher so that your guests can easily whip up any meal they desire. Opposite the range, a chandelier defines your table, which is situated in front of a large sunny window that spills light into your kitchen. At the other end of this open space, your cozy living room has plenty of room for comfortable seating. Multiple windows stream natural light and French doors open to a small covered patio, where a flagstone path invites you to stroll over to the sparkling pool.

Your guest home also has two bedrooms, both of which are situated just off the entry so they are quiet and private. Each is beautifully finished with crown molding, large closets, and private access to hall baths. The larger of the two rooms enjoys an inviting window seat lined with built-in shelving and a perfectly chosen chandelier that adds a whimsical touch to this bright room. A large ensuite bath is circled in wood wainscoting and includes a spacious walk-in shower. A second door offers access to the entry hall.

The final bedroom is at the end of your entry hall and has a private door to a bathroom shared with the main living area. This shared bath sparkles with a pedestal sink and striking tile around the deep tub.

Finally, your guest home includes a laundry closet thoughtfully situated between the bedrooms. Whether they are just staying the night or enjoying a longer visit, your guests are sure to love their stay in this welcoming guest home.


Set on 2.61 acres, this home enjoys a wonderfully treed lot with plenty of natural beauty to restore your mind and body. Your home is tucked among mature trees and beautifully landscaped to create a private retreat. Warm-toned brick with stone accents and painted wood shutters add to the charming French country feel, while glowing lanterns and a gorgeous curved front door offer an inviting welcome.

Lush lawn and mature trees continue into your back yard as well, where they combine with thoughtful landscaping to create an incredible park-like setting. Flagstone paths wander through your yard, connecting several quiet spaces that are half-hidden among the trees. Closest to your home is a covered patio with plenty of space for outdoor seating and a covered dining table near your built-in grill. The cathedral-vaulted space includes several ceiling fans to keep air moving on warm days. From the patio, charming stone steps lead you down to the pool level where a heated spa, tiled in gorgeous tropical blues, trickles down a rock creek into your lagoon pool. Well-planted trees, piled rock with waterfalls, and a landscaped berm create a secluded lagoon oasis, while a tanning ledge and an extensive pool deck offer sunny lounging. From the pool area several flagstone paths wander off to quiet spots that include a fire pit with seating, an arbor perfect for a swing or shaded table, and a playhouse for kids to enjoy. Wonderfully planned and beautifully executed, this fully fenced back yard offers a tranquil retreat you won’t find anywhere else.
