A gorgeous show stopper! This beauty offers a rare opportunity to embrace a resort lifestyle in a home of relaxed elegance. The 0.68 acre lot is on a quiet tree-lined cul-de-sac in Southlake Woods, a great neighborhood boasting many amenities including parks, playgrounds, a community pool, tennis court, walking trails, and a private lake. The home, with its expansive and lushly landscaped yard, backs to the lake. This prized location offers extraordinary views, including awesome sunsets. The resort-like backyard with its lagoon pool and spa has multiple outdoor living spaces. Open patios are nestled throughout providing many gathering spots for relaxing and entertaining. Call this home your own and discover this wonderful lifestyle.

The home showcases an expansive floor plan with large spacious rooms and many fine details throughout, including moldings and arches, custom painted walls and trim work, elevated ceilings, and upscale finishes. It features five bedrooms (with the master down), lovely hardwood and travertine floors, a spacious chef's kitchen and breakfast room, handsome study, lots of storage space, formal dining room, master suite with a hidden exercise room, a game room, a large media room, heavy solid core doors, and a custom made storm shelter in the garage.

The impressive curb appeal starts with the manicured lawn and professional landscaping. The walkway leads past colorful flower beds and up to the handsome iron and glass front door of this ivy covered brick and stone home. Step into the entry with its towering ceiling and dazzling chandelier. Beautiful travertine flooring flows through most of the downstairs. From the foyer, a curved stairway is straight ahead, the formal dining is to the right, the study is to the left, and the private master suite is down the right hallway. The kitchen, breakfast room, and family room are located around the corner at the back of the home.

Double archways lead into the formal dining room. The walls are custom painted and feature three recessed niches on one wall - great for displaying artwork, collectibles, or for storing wine. The exquisite chandelier provides that special lighting for dinner parties and holiday meals.

The masterfully designed study is behind heavy paneled wood French doors. This room provides a private work area and features lovely hand scraped wood floors and enhanced detailed woodwork, including wide baseboards, crown molding, bookcases and built-in granite topped desk.

Down the right hallway and located for privacy behind heavy French doors is the master suite. It is private and spacious and a perfect retreat from the rest of the world! It features the same gorgeous wood floors that were in the study as well as a built-in media cabinet flanked by bookcases. A door leads to a private patio overlooking the backyard, lake and jasmine-covered pergola. This is a great place to enjoy coffee or follow the flagstone steps to the pool and spa.

The spa-like master bath offers a great place to relax at the end of the day. It features separate vanities with dual sinks and granite counters, a jetted tub, a separate walk-in tiled shower with a bench and double shower sprays. A huge oversized walk-in closet offers four dressers and shelving with double hanging rods. Another great feature of the master is a "secret room", currently used as a private exercise room. This room has lovely views of the backyard and could be used in a variety of ways.

The family room is two stories and open to the breakfast room and kitchen. A beautiful wood burning stone fireplace not only adds visual interest but provides comforting warmth during those nippy winter evenings. A handsome media cabinet and bookcases are next to the fireplace. Four tall windows overlook the backyard and the lake. A second staircase is located off of the family room.

Three distinct archways introduce the breakfast room. This open and bright room offers great space for casual dining. The kitchen is well-equipped, featuring a six-burner gas stove with a griddle, a vented hood, warming lamp and pot filler. A large granite topped island provides extra storage and additional seating for casual dining. Cabinet space is abundant. The stainless steel appliances include a built-in microwave, built-in refrigerator, and dual dishwashers.

There is a convenient powder room between the formal areas and the family room. The oversized utility room includes a sink, granite counters, room for a refrigerator, a large closet, and a bench and coat rack. A door leads to the three car garage. A custom made storm shelter has been installed in the garage, providing protection from Texas storms and tornadoes.

Upstairs rooms include four generously sized bedrooms, a game room, and a media room. Two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom, each with separate vanities and huge walk-in closets. One of these bedrooms has a built-in desk, a computer station, built-in dresser, cabinets and bookshelves. A third bedroom has a nice view of the backyard and a private bath. The last bedroom includes a semi-private full bath that can be accessed by guests in the game room or media room. There is also a generous amount of easily accessed, floored attic storage.

The game room can be used in other ways, too - as a play room, music room, sewing and craft room, or another study area. French doors in the game room lead into the large media room. This room has plenty of space for a large crowd on movie night. It features a wet bar with granite counters, sink, cabinets above and below, a built-in wine cooler and a pitched tray ceiling with canned lighting and a nice bronzed light fixture.

The highlight of this home is the resort-like backyard. It features a breathtaking saltwater lagoon pool with a rock garden slide and a spa with a lovely waterfall feature. There are multiple outdoor living areas throughout this lushly landscaped backyard. The covered patio off the kitchen has a built-in grill located in a side island. This is perfect for cook outs with friends and family. It is also protected from the afternoon sun by a powered drop-screen. Flagstone steps lead down to a second covered living area complete with a wood burning fireplace, a TV ledge, a built-in bar and refrigerator, and a convenient half bath. A great spot for watching the Cowboys. Another area features a lovely jasmine covered wrought iron pergola with a fire pit in the middle. This would be a wonderful place to sit and relax on those crisp cool nights. There are open patios and decks that provide abundant seating and lounging space all with perfect views of the lake. This is the perfect spot for entertaining and outdoor living.

This beautiful home will certainly satisfy your desires and exceed your expectations. Make it your own!

Cindy's Selling Tips

Paint - the home seller's best friend. Painting can be a great investment when selling your home. It is relatively cheap and often you can do it yourself. Choose off-white colors as these work with anyone's furniture and will make your home look spacious and bright. Read more at Fixing the Interior of Your Home.

Make it easy to see your home. Make your home easy for real estate agents to show. Be ready to show at any time. Avoid scheduling restrictions. This is hard - but your house has to be shown in order to sell. Read more at Showing Your Home.

Visit Cindy's Seller's page for more selling tips and information.
