Lush, lovingly tended landscaping, a casually elegant front porch and an extra wide circular drive present a warm, inviting welcome to visitors or family alike.
The inviting front porch overlooks a fountain across the street and one to the side.
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. The main residence is at the front in this photo. The secondary residence is at the left rear. Notice all of the parking!
From the front of the house, the driveway continues along the west side of the property to the 3 garages and to the front entrance of the secondary house. The drive way and motor court provide additional parking for guests.
The entry to the primary residence is charming, it has terrific views of three neighboring ponds. The pond in this photo provides irrigation for this property.
There is a large common room at the entry of the primary residence. It features two distinct areas - one can be used as a dining room, and the other as a formal living room. They are interchangeable. Plantation shutters and hand scraped wood floors build an atmosphere of casual elegance. The hall to the right leads to the kitchen, family room, and secondary bedrooms.
This is the other formal room; a chandelier is available for this area. The doors are to the Master Suite, the Powder Room and the Study. This room also offers the first views of the lovely backyard.
This is the kitchen of the primary residence. It is stunning! Granite counters, travertine backsplash and accents are perfect for this room. The large country sink is of copper. Both the hood and the lights were specially made for this room. The floors are also travertine and extend through the utility room and the breakfast room. The door to the right leads to the secondary bedrooms.
The gourmet kitchen has been designed "by a cook for a cook". It features a Wolf professional range with a six-burner cooktop topped with a pot filler. A large built-in microwave/convection oven plus a warming drawer with a "slow cooker" feature provides more cooking options. 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.
This is the Breakfast Room. French doors lead to the backyard - note the outdoor built-in grill. The door to the left is to the garages. The stairs to the left lead to the second story where there is a bonus or gameroom and large storage areas.
The utility room is a great companion to the kitchen, continuing the same wood and granite. Plantation shutters here too. The unit to the left is lovely and provides terrific storage. The door to the right opens to a covered patio.
The Family Room of the primary residence: Open to the kitchen, it has hand scraped wood floors, stone fireplace, plantation shutters.
The family room is open to the kitchen and features this lovely stone fireplace. The wood floors look great!
The master bedroom has a wall of windows covered with plantation shutters. There is a stunning view of the backyard pool and landscaping. This room is spic and span with recently installed carpet. The doors to the right lead to the master bath and its great closet.
Beautifully appointed master bath with two vanities and two sinks. A separate shower with multiple water jets. You can see the rain head in the photo. This is a very spa-like bath and a wonderful place to relax.
This custom closet is a real gem and will give you years of service. A place for everything. Really stunning!
This is one of three secondary bedrooms in the primary residence. All are generously sized with plantation shutters, carpet, and ceiling fans. Two have custom closets. All are ready to go with recently updated carpet and paint. Bright and airy!

This covered patio is off the breakfast room of the primary residence. Flagstones have been used to great effect. There is a fan and a pull down sun shade for added comfort. The walkway leads to the pool; the second residence can be reached from the back yard.
The covered patio from the previous photo is in the background. The door at the right is the backdoor of the secondary residence. Look st those palm trees. Resort like, isn't it? Notice the very attractive rock fence behind the palm tree.
Following the driveway down the west side of the property takes you to the front door of the secondary residence along with its garage.
The family room of the secondary residence is open to the kitchen and has a nice built in for a television and books. There is space for a dining table in front of the plantation shutters. To the right of this photo is the entry to the home. The stairs lead to the second story where there is a second bedroom suite along with a very large unfinished attic space that would make a terrific gameroom or media room.
The windows provide both light and beautiful view of the backyard oasis.
Full kitchen in secondary residence sports engineered wood floors, granite counters, oak cabinets, dishwasher, an electric cooktop and a built in oven and microwave.
This kitchen even comes with a nice sized pantry.

The primary residence is on the left; the secondary residence is on the right. Both have great views of the lovely backyard and pool.
The Sellers are particularly proud of the palm trees!
Note the barn in the background. It offers numerous possibilities.
Here is a nice closeup of the pool. The spa is just to the right. Hard to see, but beyond the barn is the fence, which is made of metal with wood inserts. It is both strong and attractive.
The property is .99 acres. There is plenty of room left over for gardening and ball games.
The four stall barn is currently used primarily as a workshop but could be a terrific "man cave". If you look hard you will see a small wood burning stove in the photo. Keep warm when it's chilly outside. Water and electricity (both 110 and 220) are available in the barn. There is room to park two cars inside...or convert it to a garage for a car collection; many possibilities here! There is also plenty of uncovered parking in front of the barn.
