Dear reader, an experience may await you here that is something you have always dreamed about--finding the perfect home. The homes oozes appeal from the moment you pull up in front.
Don't think "lot". Think hill country. It is 1.41 acres (in a regular subdivision, that is enough land for 6-7 houses), and it is longer than a football field. There are three distinct sections of this setting--manicured in front, the spa-like setting of the pool, and the pristine terrain in back.
About The House, Wait Til You See The Stained Concrete Floors
All of the cabinets are made from expensive Alder wood--the preferred material when striving for a natural look because you actually see the grain and knots in the wood.
The interior stone was hand-picked with an interesting twist. In most homes, the smooth side is used which results in a uniform surface and a consistent white color. When these stones arrived the sellers realized that using the rough side added a hand-hewn appearance, and it allowed the veins of iron to show through which compliments the similar color in the stained floors.
A Very Custom Kitchen
Also note the curved cantina-style bar. When you invite friends over they can have a drink at the bar or walk around and help with one of the dishes. How fun is that! Now try this. Glance up at the kitchen photo and imagine you are standing there. The beams not only add rustic elegance, but they subconsciously direct your line-of-sight back out to the wide view that extends through the house, to the terrace, to the gardens, to the pool, all the way out to the hill country beyond.
The house actually sits on a hill, and when the leaves drop off the trees in the winter, you get a miles-long vista. The house conforms to the gentle slope of the lot--please pass if you need everything on one level as there are steps here--coming in from the garage and some down to reach the right wing of the house where the master is located.
One Of The Owners Used To Manage A Spa
There are two waterfalls and fountains so you can enjoy the soothing sound of running water when you are in the house. A long, deep covered terrace spans the back of the house. Consider the uses--start weekends here with fresh coffee, write a letter to an old friend, or curl up with a good book. Do you love to set a "cute" table? Live here and you can have an al fresco lunch with fresh flowers from your garden. You can enjoy a glass of wine and take in a star-filled sky at night. And when is the last time you went skinny dippin' with your sweetie?
If you are new to Texas you may regret buying a home if the pool is on the west side of the house--the glaring summer sun is simply too intense. Here, the pool is on the east side--much preferred because the terrace and pool are in the shade in the afternoon making it ideal for cookouts, swimming and parties.
