Introduction

Large windows, soaring ceilings, wide halls and doorways, and fresh paint create an open, restful retreat in this thoughtfully planned home. Situated in prestigious Star Creek, this home impresses with loads of natural light and a beautiful open floor plan. Both the master and the guest suites are located on the first floor, with a centrally placed gourmet kitchen you’re sure to love. Double staircases access your second floor, which houses your game room, media room, a fantastic craft room, and three additional bedrooms. Plantation shutters and surround sound are found throughout the home, even on the second floor. Luxurious living continues in your back yard, where a piled rock waterfall pours into your gorgeous lagoon pool. Recent upgrades in the last year include a new roof, new window screens and casings, a new pool pump, and new A/C coils. Both hot water heaters have also been recently replaced. Meticulously maintained by the original owners, this bright and spacious Highland Home is sure to delight your family.

First Floor

As you enter this home you are transported into a bright and tranquil space with soaring ceilings and loads of natural light. Peaceful hues of white and light gray run throughout your home, unifying spaces and creating an open, serene atmosphere. Overhead a beautiful chandelier hangs from a ceiling framed in elegant stacked crown molding while straight ahead your stair is gorgeous, edged in hardwoods and accented with crisp white trim as it rises over the arched entry to your family room. Favorite art and photos displayed along the ledge at the top landing create a welcoming feel. To your right an open arch frames your formal rooms, adding to the sense of spaciousness. To your left French doors open to your study, with a private guest suite situated on the other side.

Turning to your left you first come to your study, where tall baseboards and deep crown molding lend an elegant finish to this peaceful space. Warm light streams through the large front window. Light gray walls, tall ceilings, and crisp white plantation shutters create an airy, relaxing space perfect for a home office or library.

Continuing past your study, your first-floor guest suite is privately tucked away in the front corner of your home for a quiet space your overnight guests will love. A large window dressed in plantation shutters overlooks your front yard and fills this room with light. High ceilings, a large closet, and a private ensuite bath ensure guests’ comfort while they stay with you. Although it is currently only a powder bath, the ensuite is plumbed and ready for a either a tub or large walk-in shower as you desire.

Back at your entry, your stacked formal rooms are open on the right. Both are bright and welcoming with sunlight splashing through large front windows. Plantation shutters in white echo the crisp lines of the beautiful stacked molding in each space. Your living room is closest to the entry, with cozy seating that invites your guests to relax and stay awhile. On the far side of your living room, a sweeping arch defines the transition to your dining room where your elegantly set table is centered under a softly glowing chandelier. A butler’s pantry at the back connects you to your kitchen for an easy flow between spaces.

Moving into your kitchen you find a bright and light-filled space that is warm and inviting. A wall of side windows beside your casual table floods this space with natural light. Gleaming granite counters offer plenty of prep space and a dry stacked split stone backsplash adds texture. Rich wood cabinetry provides plenty of storage around the perimeter and at the center island. Additional seating at the island welcomes conversation as meals are prepared. Stainless appliances include a gas cooktop and double wall ovens, as well as a microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator.

Your kitchen and family room are open to one another to form a large space designed to be the heart of your home. A beautiful fireplace faced in random set stone extends clear up to the high ceiling, creating a strong focal point in the room. A raised hearth and firebox allow its warm glow to be enjoyed from the kitchen as well as the family room. A large recess to the right is perfect for cabinetry to house your tv and create a pleasing display. Along the back wall of your home, a row of windows frames your lagoon pool and entices you outside. A patio door is situated in the back corner for easy indoor/outdoor flow. Your home’s back stair leads upwards from this corner as well, connecting your second floor to your outdoor living.

Between your family room and front entry, tucked under the stair, a powder bath takes care of your guests with a rich wood furniture style vanity and honed travertine counter. Centrally located on the first floor, this charming bath is convenient to all your entertaining spaces.

Also just off the family room, your master bedroom is situated in the back corner of your home away from the noise and bustle of family life. Sunny and tranquil, your master suite boasts high ceilings, fresh paint, and peaceful feel. This wonderfully spacious room has a fantastic bay wall of windows that offer a relaxing spot to relax and enjoy views of the beautiful waterfall and garden in your back yard.

The restful feel continues into your master bath, where side windows dressed in plantation shutters splash sunlight into this wonderful space. White cabinetry houses separate his and hers vanities and offers plenty of storage. Rich-toned slate flooring offers a sophisticated contrast, continuing up and around the curbless roll-in shower for a seamless flow. Set under the windows, your jetted tub also has a slate surround for beautiful continuity. Between the vanities and your tub, a door opens to a master closet with loads of hanging space, well-placed shelving, and electrical outlets for added convenience.

The first floor of your home also holds your laundry room, which is just off your kitchen. A garment bar above your washer and dryer and a utility sink in the corner offer added practicality while cabinetry above the sink keeps detergents and other supplies neatly tucked away. Generous proportions allow plenty of room for an extra fridge or upright freezer. A separate door in the laundry room accesses your garage, which is a three-car tandem garage with a double bay door. High ceilings provide ample space to add overhead storage if you desire.

Second Floor

Climbing your beautiful stair you arrive at a top landing with display ledges perfect for favorite photos or art to personalize this space. One bedroom lies to your right while the rest of the second floor unfolds through a doorway to your left.

Heading to the left you find yourself in a very generously sized game room with a back wall of windows that overlook your lagoon pool and patio seating. With tall ceilings and ample space, this room is ready for any activity your family desires. An adjacent closet has plenty of shelving to keep games and equipment neatly put away when not in use. The back stair, situated between this room and your craft room, leads down to your family room and patio door for easy outdoor access.

Moving through the game room you pass the back stair as you come to a wet bar cleverly placed between your game and media rooms. Wood cabinetry and granite counters echo those in your kitchen, creating a connection between these spaces. A stainless sink, beverage fridge, and ample cabinetry keep handy all the snacks and drinks you could want whether you are spending time as a family or hosting a crowd.

From the wet bar, side doors open to your media room. This inviting space is painted a deep, rich brown and boasts tiered seating that ensures everyone has a great view. Four wall columns topped with crown molding hold beautiful lantern sconces for soft mood lighting. An overhead projector and large front-mounted screen are complimented by surround sound for many enjoyable evenings with family and friends.

On the south side of your home, two bedrooms and a craft room lie along one side of your game room while a third bedroom and full bath are situated on the north side. Both of the south bedrooms are carpeted, with large windows for plenty of light and vaulted ceilings that add a spacious feel. Both also have large closets and private vanities in clean white. They share between them a Jack-and-Jill wet area with a tiled tub.

Also on the south wall is a fantastic craft room with windows along the side that flood this space with light. Light gray walls and white cabinetry keep the room bright and peaceful. Built-ins along opposite walls each have a long desk with ample storage below and open shelving above, leaving enough space in the middle for a central table. Two great closets are fully shelved, offering tons of storage for supplies and equipment.

On the north side of your game room is a full bath, shared between the third bedroom and your public spaces. This bath has a tiled tub and single vanity, as well as a door with attic access to your two recently upgraded water heaters.

Past the full bath is your final bedroom. Like the others, it too is carpeted and has vaulted ceilings and a large window for a bright and spacious feel. A door inside the walk-in closet opens to a great attic space ready for decking so that you can use it for extra storage.

Exterior

The front of your home is warm and inviting with varied red-toned brick. Sections of brick in a herringbone pattern and vertical brickwork above each window add charming detail, while random set stone creates further interest and character. An aggregate walk up from the street passes between green lawns and gorgeous trees to arrive at your front porch. Well-kept landscaping along the front softens the foundation, while multiple windows glow a warm welcome in the evening.

Landscaping continues into your back yard, where a newly stained fence surrounds a well-planned backyard retreat that makes you forget you’re in the city. Just outside the patio door, your outdoor dining table is ready for an alfresco lunch. Aggregate decking extends from the patio out and around your incredible lagoon pool, providing plenty of space for sunny tables and loungers. Featuring a 0-depth entry and large ledge along the side, your pool offers something for everyone, with a shallow area for smaller children while older ones enjoy swimming in the deeper end. Your low-chlorine pool also boasts piled rock accents and a fantastic waterfall whose musical sound puts you in the middle of nature, away from the cares of the city. Large trees, beautiful ornamentals, tall shrubs, and natural grasses surround your yard, further adding to the private garden feel. When it’s time to eat, the poolside kitchen is ready for you to grill up a feast. In the meantime, an outdoor fridge keeps cold beverages handy on warm afternoons. At night ground-wired accent lighting turns your backyard retreat into a magical place sure to be enjoyed by family and friends alike.
