Located in the top-rated Lovejoy school district, this beautiful home is nestled among the trees on an incredible lot at the end of a quiet culdesac. Tall trees, chirping birds, and a wonderfully private yard make you feel like you are miles away from the city. Inside, fantastic finishes and fixtures offer elegant and luxurious living with newly refinished Texas mesquite hardwoods, Pella windows and doors, Grohe faucets, brand new carpet, and natural stone counters. The open floor plan flows easily from one room to the next and is perfect for entertaining. Bedrooms are large and peaceful, with an amazing master suite designed for pampering. Luxurious living continues outside, where your multi-level patio, sparkling pool, and fabulous cabana overlook private acreage that is not likely to ever be developed. Numerous windows and multiple doors offer easy connections with the surrounding natural beauty and provide seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor living. Other upgrades to this incredible property include a completely relined and retiled pool, recently replaced pool equipment, a 50-year commercial roof, and HVAC units still under warranty. Beautifully finished and impeccably maintained, this home offers luxurious living in a tranquil setting that you won’t find anywhere else.
As you step into the foyer you immediately feel welcomed as this incredible home unfolds before you. Gorgeous Texas mesquite hardwood floors, newly refinished, extend in every direction, their rich warmth grounding the spacious and elegant rooms that are open before you. Beautiful vaulted and domed ceilings add interest and luxury everywhere you look, while extensive moldings accent their architectural lines and give evidence of the superb craftsmanship throughout. The foyer itself is stunningly finished with double doors cased in beautiful millwork and highlighted by a barrel-vaulted ceiling framed with cove molding. Double doors on the left and right lead to private bedrooms; however your eye is drawn to the inviting seating and crackling fire in the central living room directly ahead of you.
Defined by columns and an incredible octagonal vaulted ceiling, your formal living room is spacious and inviting. A large wood-burning cast stone fireplace anchors your seating and offers a beautiful focal point. Opposite the fireplace a wall of built-in shelving adds a cozy feel and displays your favorite volumes. Your living room is open to both the dining room and kitchen, while glass doors and a large window provide a visual connection with your sunroom. A piano alcove, defined by columns and softly lit with wall sconces, is situated between your living and dining rooms so that guests in both spaces can enjoy beautiful music.
To the left of your fireplace, a long barrel-vaulted ceiling extends over your perfectly set dining table. Arched windows at the end echo the ceiling’s shape for lovely continuity and fill this space with natural light. On the table, stemware sparkles in the soft light of the chandelier while serving pieces are displayed in the built-in cabinetry. A thoughtful butler’s pantry connects you to the kitchen.
Opposite the dining room and across your living room, another barrel-vaulted ceiling leads you to the sunroom. Here glass doors on either side of a large window open to a bright space with brick walls and lantern-style sconces. Gorgeous paneling accents the barrel-vaulted ceiling, which draws your eye toward the incredible outdoor views. Rich hardwood floors echo the natural tones of the landscaping and a glass door provides easy access to the patio and pool. Beautiful and versatile, this space could easily be converted into a bedroom, with the adjacent powder bath expanded to become a private ensuite.
Back in your living room, a large island signals the transition to your incredible and open kitchen. This enormous space is defined by two large perimeter islands of beautiful white cabinetry and extensive granite counters. A center island offers additional prep space. Two full-sized sinks, both with garbage disposals and Grohe faucets, easily accommodate multiple chefs while double wall ovens and a 6-burner Thermador cooktop take care of the cooking. With loads of storage and casual seating at the front island your kitchen is sure to become a social hub. Just off the kitchen but toward the back of your home, a small covered patio offers a quiet spot to sit with a cup of coffee as you watch the kids play in the yard.
Looking to your right, your kitchen flows into your sunny breakfast nook, nestled by windows that frame your sparkling pool and beautifully treed backdrop. A tray ceiling adds to the spacious feel and painted shutters in the interior wall serve as a pass-through to your family room. French doors at the end of your table open to your upper patio for easy flow between indoor and outdoor living.
Thoughtfully placed in a central location, your wet bar makes it easy to serve guests in every major living space. A large window opens so that outdoor guests can also enjoy drinks and snacks. With plenty of cabinetry, a wine cooler, full-sized refrigerator, glass cabinets for stemware, and space for a microwave, this wet bar is guaranteed to have something for everyone.
At the back of your home, adjacent to your kitchen and breakfast nook, your family room offers a versatile space that can be either public or private. Multiple doors fully open the room to your main living area or close to contain it as a separate space when needed. Gleaming mesquite floors continue into your family room, where a wood burning fireplace crackles invitingly. Its extensive stone surround creates a cozy feel. The generous proportions of this room offer plenty of space for relaxing seating and a large-screen tv while a nearby A/V closet keeps all your media equipment neatly contained. On one side of the room a large U-shaped desk serves as a fantastic home office with beautiful cabinetry and expansive stone counters. Across the room, the opposite wall has additional built-in cabinetry that includes a second desk. Multiple windows and a glass door to your patio keep this room bright and inviting.
Tucked away in a private wing of your home, your master suite is quite and secluded, away from the noise and bustle of family life. Beautiful travertine tile and elegant cove molding lend a luxurious feel to this large space. Loads of windows connect you to the natural beauty outside while plantation shutters offer privacy. Continuing into the master bath you find separate vanities with exotic marble countertops. However the centerpiece is the Whirlpool Jacuzzi tub in the middle of the room, set off by columns and surrounded by marble. Above the tub a vaulted ceiling, beautifully framed with millwork and molding, adds to the luxurious bathing experience. Behind your tub your walk-through shower is fully tiled in creamy travertine and boasts dual shower heads and shampoo niches. High windows splash sunlight into this spa-inspired suite.
Your home’s other bedrooms are situated at the front of the house, one on each side of the entry. Both have new carpet, loads of natural light, and private ensuites with fully tiled showers and beautiful stone counters on the vanities. The bedroom to the right is designed as a mother-in-law suite with an inset cathedral-vaulted ceiling over the bed. A wall of built-in shelving and a living area that overlooks the pool completes this spacious suite. Glass doors give direct access to the sunroom, where the pool and patio is just steps away.
Your home has two additional bathrooms. The first is a powder room between the living room and sunroom, while the second is a full bath just off a short hall between the kitchen and the master bedroom. This hall also contains two closets as well as space for additional refrigerators or cabinetry. At the end of the hall is your enormous laundry room with plenty of cabinetry and counter space, a large utility sink, built-in ironing board, and a second dishwasher. A large window makes this space bright and cheerful. Opening off the laundry room is a fabulous craft room with wonderful natural light and close proximity to the large sink. Across the laundry room another door opens to your double garage. Your single garage connects to your double garage and with its sink and plumbing would make a fantastic workshop.
Between the laundry room and double garage, stairs lead up to a fully decked attic that already includes one room finished with electricity and HVAC. There is plenty of space for additional rooms should you choose to expand your living space.
Winding its way from the quiet culdesac, your long driveway passes the front of your inviting home and wraps around to the side entry garage. A walkway wanders from the driveway up to your front door, passing between beautiful trees as it leads up to a dramatic arched entry. Tall trees, chirping birds, and a wonderfully private yard make you feel like you are miles away from the city.
On one side of your home your incredible outdoor living beckons invitingly with a multi-level patio, fabulous cabana and outdoor kitchen, and newly refinished pool. Right off your breakfast nook, your raised patio is finished in concrete stamped and stained to look like flagstone. There is plenty of space here for shaded outdoor seating, with a ceiling fan to keep the air moving on warm days. To the left your amazing cabana houses your large dining table and a commercial grade kitchen with stainless counters, built-in grill, and side burners. Cabinets and drawers offer plenty of storage while an electric roll-down door keeps your kitchen neat and clean between uses.
A few steps down from here is your pool level, with an extensive patio that offers plenty of space for lounge chairs and sunny tables. Enjoy a refreshing swim in your sparkling pool or a relaxing soak in the heated spa as you enjoy unobstructed views of your yard and the natural beauty beyond. Fresh breezes, rustling leaves, and birdsong create a restful atmosphere in your private outdoor retreat.
On the other side of your home, trees along the fence line continue the private park-like feel while large open spaces provide plenty of space for kids to play. A covered back patio overlooks the yard and offers a sheltered spot for you to sit with your favorite beverage as you enjoy your new home.
