This is such a classy country style home with tall peak standing seam roof. It’s one I always drive by and admire and now it’s for sale. I really like it’s manageable size of 3,376 SF (per tax rolls) which makes it much more affordable than most of these big homes you’ll find in Lucas. It’s on a big 2.3 acre lot which is one of the larger lots in the development. It has a nice treeline in back. The owners have thoroughly enjoyed their pool and walkout balcony overlooking the back acreage. Horses are allowed within Huntwick Estates and there is no HOA. Best of all, the home is located within the Lovejoy ISD, one of the premier school districts in the entire state of Texas year in and year out. It’s often compared to both Highland Park and Southlake Caroll, two other highly regarded school districts.
The drive-up is picturesque through a meticulously landscaped neighborhood of stately homes. Situated in Huntwick neighborhood, this hill country inspired home is a delight for the senses and a feast for the eyes. Tudor style accents of random field stone and classic deep red brick are accented with deeply stained cedar beams, shutters, and corbels with sage trim. A sturdy standing seam metal roof is a lovely modern statement and suits the home beautifully.
