This very special Southlake property offers two complete residences in one
structure. Each has its own private entrance and complete living quarters
including two kitchens. This family compound provides a wonderful opportunity
for extended family or close friends to live together while maintaining privacy
and autonomy. Add to this an almost acre lot, a four-stall barn with workshop
and beautiful landscaping complete with gardens, pool and spa, patios and
outdoor grill. While located minutes from Southlake's popular Town Center, it
maintains a tranquil rural aura. This really is a very special place that cannot
be easily duplicated.
The larger residence has been remodeled and updated with hand scraped hardwood
floors in the formal areas and the family room; the kitchen, breakfast room and
utility area have travertine flooring. There are plantation shutters throughout
this home. Recent paint and carpet updates make the remainder of the home very
fresh. The floorplan includes four bedrooms, two and a half baths, a study,
formal living and dining rooms, a kitchen, breakfast room, and a spacious
utility room are on the first level. The second level has a bonus room that
could be utilized as a game room, playroom, exercise room, etc. There are also
two large storage areas on the second floor.
The impressive curb appeal of this home begins with the manicured lawn and
landscaping. A well designed, extra wide, circular drive provides plentiful off
the street parking. A covered porch adds a welcoming touch and an excellent
place to enjoy views of neighboring fountains. Inside, the formal dining room
and living room are open with the spaces defined by columns and arches. To the
right of the entry is a study with a built-in desk and cabinets. A half bath is
located just down the hall from the study. The master bedroom is situated at the
rear of the home. It is spacious with up to date carpet and plantation shutters.
A large, beautifully designed, custom closet includes some first-class
built-ins; it is very impressive. The spa-like master bath includes granite
counters, two vanities with dual sinks, and a walk-in shower with multiple spray
heads and a rain head. The tub is nestled under a frosted glass window that lets
in light while maintaining privacy.
The other three bedrooms are on the left front of the home. They are all
generously sized and have carpet, ceiling fans, plantation shutters, and custom
closets. A fully updated bathroom features granite, dual sinks, and large plank

professional range with a six-burner cooktop topped with a pot filler. The
range's oven provides a choice of convection or conventional baking. The range
has a professional grade vent and a custom hood. A large built-in
microwave/convection oven plus a warming drawer with a "slow cooker" feature
provides more cooking options. Generous granite counters, a large copper sink,
travertine backsplashes and custom lighting are functional as well as beautiful.
Electrical connections are strategically place in the bar area to make buffet
service a breeze. There is an abundance of cabinets, some with rain glass and
lighted tops, convenient multi-shelving with large and small pullouts and
drawers, including a pull-out spice rack. Next to the kitchen is an open
breakfast area and a spacious utility room. The utility room is well appointed
with a sink, broom closet and plentiful cabinets and storage. Double doors off
the breakfast room open to the backyard, covered patio and lovely pool area.
The striking family room is open to the kitchen. A handsome stone fireplace
adds a warm ambience to the whole area. Lovely wood floors and plantation
shutters complete the family room. A nearby enclosed stairway leads up to the
bonus room. This room can be utilized as a game room, craft room, exercise room,

This secondary residence is located at the rear of the structure has its own
front door. It would be perfect for in-laws, grown children, relatives, or
friends. You can have your loved ones with you, while maintaining separate
living quarters. At the heart of this residence is a large area containing the
family room, breakfast area and a full kitchen. The family room has a stone
framed fireplace with gas logs, engineered wood floors and plantation shutters.
The kitchen includes an electric cooktop, a built-in oven and microwave, granite
counters, an eat-at bar area, dishwasher, travertine tile backsplash, decorative
hooded vent, large pantry and lots of oak cabinets.
There are two bedrooms in the secondary home. The master bedroom is downstairs.
It is carpeted and includes a custom closet with built-ins. The master bath has
double sinks and vanities. There is a large guest suite upstairs that includes a
huge closet and a bath with double vanities. Also on the second level is a very
large unfinished area. If finished, it could be a terrific media room, office
space or other work area.
Off the downstairs kitchen there is a utility room with a sink, room for a
refrigerator, and cabinets for storage. There is a third bathroom off the
utility area that makes a great pool bath with a shower. It is convenient for
everyone to use. An exterior door opens to the pool and backyard.
The large backyard is an attraction in itself. Completely secured by handsome
metal fencing with wood inserts, it is both private and lovely. The pool/spa has
a number of water features and is surrounded by flowering gardens. Covered and
open patios offer plenty of places to sit and relax; an outdoor grill and
firepit make outdoor entertaining a snap. The expansive lawn is completely
irrigated by well water from the neighboring pond. What a money saver! The front
circular drive continues along the side of the house to a three-car garage and
then continues to a large unpaved parking area in front of the four-stall barn.
The barn has both electricity and water. Currently used as a workshop and
storage area it can also provide covered parking for another two cars. It could
easily be converted to a top-notch garage for an antique auto collection
or modified to make a super "man cave."
To summarize, the main residence has a formal living and dining, large family
room, gourmet kitchen, breakfast area, master and three bedrooms down with
family room and storage areas up. The secondary residence has a combined family
room/breakfast area/kitchen, master bedroom down, and a large bedroom suite
upstairs, plus a large unfinished bonus room.
