Country Brook Estates is a wonderfully family friendly development nestled in the heart of Lovejoy ISD. This established neighborhood of large lots has old growth trees, walking trails, green ways, and play areas. A wonderful place to call home with nearly every convenience imaginable just minutes away; great shopping, world class dining, and an easy commute with access to 75 and 121.

Interiors boast a classic repeated arched opening theme, circular flow, and generously proportioned rooms. This 2-story home has hardwood floors, new carpeting, decorator paint and trim treatments, and many upgraded finishes. Come see 1722 Turnberry that has so much to offer!
Upon entry through the arched bead board panel solid door you’ll see a beautiful wood floor laid out before you. The floors are finished warm medium brown and completed with stained wood baseboards, making a distinguished impression. Walls in designer colors are topped with deep stained crown molding, complimenting the look. The graceful curved central stair, warm stained wood floors and cabinetry, soaring ceilings and eyebrow arch openings accentuate the home’s architectural details and grand scale.
From the entry, the balcony railing above frames the boundaries of the welcoming foyer and two front formals. Above you, a library loft, is visible and begs to be explored. The iconic stair creates a curved wall in the dining room below, adding interest. The grand curved stair before you has wood trimmed step and risers with turned wood spindles and a stain matched warm chestnut handrail. Designer carpet is upholstered on the steps for comfort and quiet.
On either side of the entry are the large formal rooms open to the entry hall. On the left, a dramatic room has a massive front facing window and soaring ceilings. Currently in use as the formal dining room, this room is versatile and would function as a formal living area or music room.
On the opposite side of the entry hall is another large room. If a formal living isn’t needed, an addition of French doors would make this space an excellent home office or study.
Continue through the entry to the large open concept family room, kitchen, and breakfast rooms.

The kitchen follows the curved theme and the bayed walls of windows along the family room and breakfast room reinforce this design element. In the kitchen, the center island with circular breakfast bar seating is large and adds generous additional prep space. The island also houses a 4-burner gas range. The range is facing outward, to be included in the family room, breakfast room, and to partake of the backyard views. Kitchen cabinetry is all custom built and done in furniture finish, stained a warm natural honey brown. The kitchen is well outfitted with a high functioning appliance suite. It is a very well planned kitchen and workspace for large gatherings. What a delight to cook and entertain here!
Beyond the workspace area of the kitchen is a sunny and open breakfast room. Along one wall a built-in side board and hutch area stands ready to serve. The bay wall of floor to ceiling windows creates a cozy nook with views out to the lovely backyard.
