Situated on a district boundary line, the home and detached workshop are on approx. 1.50 acres in Lovejoy ISD, with the rest of the acreage and barn in the lower McKinney ISD tax district. Three buildings are situated on 3.50 total acres for you to enjoy the best of country living. Beautifully maintained and updated, this property offers a great floorplan, large bedrooms, spacious storage, fully upgraded kitchen, private backyard, patio off the main living area, and enclosed balcony porch to take it all in!

This home is timeless in its space and ability to connect interiors with the surrounding environment. Dramatic vaulted ceilings, large picture windows and natural elements of wood and stone bring the outdoors in. The two story entry has bold side light windows and a transom above the door to bring in natural light. The extra wide handrail and straight spindles on the stair are the perfect mid-century modern adornment. From the first floor, framed openings to the adjoining rooms are clean and soar to ceiling height. At the top of the stair, a half wall open to the living area above, adds to the spacious feel.
Open to the stair and entry hall, the dining room is light and bright, with large floor-to-ceiling windows, and vaulted ceiling that add to the airy feel. An alcove under the stair houses an example of the indoor-outdoor aesthetic. It has a built-in planter area complete with its own water source. This would make a great spot to have an interior water feature.
The living room is on the opposite side of the entry. Walls of Ash picture framed paneling in a warm neutral medium brown stain rise to the ceiling. At the far end a wall of windows centered with atrium doors illuminates the space. A fireplace wall is at the opposite end and the warm earth-toned brick makes up the floor to ceiling fireplace surround and hearth. This fireplace has a recirculating fan-forced heat feature which can be activated at will. A floating mantel shelf is trimmed and stained to match the walls.
An opening along the living room leads to the kitchen and breakfast room. Surrounding walls of floor to ceiling cabinetry house all the essentials. The pantry space is integrated and everything is conveniently within reach. A large center island is a great prep area for helping hands. The kitchen was recently updated with designer appliances and striking granite countertops with a waterfall edge. Ready to get cooking, the kitchen is well-appointed with a stand-alone four-burner electric range with hood, double ovens, and deep double bowl stainless sink at the island.
The breakfast area has a bank of windows with views to the patio area. Opposite the large picture window is a built-in workspace. The lower counter desk is built to match kitchen cabinetry and is a great space to keep a busy household organized and on schedule.
The master suite is on the first floor and is generously proportioned with large floor to ceiling windows. A full bath is off the master with separate vanities, shower, and tub area. The master bath has a vaulted ceiling and skylight flooding the space with natural light, but without the sun’s heat. The skylight is factory coated for light emission without the permitting heat transfer. Two large walk in closets are at either end of the master bath for his and her separate clothes storage including a linen cabinet with built-in hamper in his.
In the hall is a full bath with large soaking tub and a floor to ceiling linen closet. Across from the master suite is another roomy bedroom with a large closet. Two more large closets are on this level; a raised linen closet is positioned across from the secondary bathroom and nearby is a large utility closet.
The laundry room is off the kitchen through two large double doors. Ample shelf area is built in for housing essentials. The virtually hidden room with floor space make this central laundry extremely functional and convenient for working without feeling removed from the rest of the home.
The home’s attached two car garage can be accessed through a kitchen door. The double door entry garage is floored with warm soil resistant garage carpeting and is roomy enough for a workbench and storage cabinets. The garage is light and bright with a large picture window to the patio area.
Ascend the stairs to reach a large family room. A corner of the room has a built-in wet bar, cabinetry for entertainment storage, mini fridge space, and open display shelves. The built-in corner is balanced by a chair rail height picture frame panel molding that wraps the rest of the room. A half wall at the top of the stairs is open to the entry and dining area below. The columns on the side of the half wall and a beam detail at the ridge line are handsome details. Across the room you see a wall of windows with an atrium door opening to a large covered balcony, soaking the family room in a warm glow. The enclosed balcony makes a lovely spot to survey the property.
A full bath is off a hall and flanked by two upstairs bedrooms. The bath has a long double vanity loaded with closed cabinetry storage below and ample counter space. A mirror runs the length above. A tub/shower combo is situated at the far end with upper cabinetry close-by. The bedrooms on either side are exceptionally large and have expansive picture window walls. Large closets are in both rooms, with one also housing a built in enclosed bookcase with counter space. This same room features a built-in desk with both drawers and shelves.
The main home and workshop are clad in brick, painted cedar, and Hardie siding, respectively. In neutral creams and tans, the home sits beautifully in its naturalized landscaping with mature trees and shrubbery. Off the house, a totally private backyard is surrounded in wide board fencing. Inside, a river rock play yard and raised sun deck are a wonderful area to play or add an outdoor spa for stargazing. Behind the home, a water feature is set in a river rock courtyard and is viewable from the breakfast area windows and the concrete patio off the living room. Paver stone & continuous concrete edged raised beds and shaped landscaping areas have sprinkler systems installed. The sprinkler system also covers the Bermuda grass yard.
At the end of the drive is a large building for additional garage and flex space with an attached side drive porte cochere. Despite its newer construction; the trim details, building style, and paint colors reflect and coordinate with the original home. A wide drive-up garage bay opens to tandem parking space for up to four cars. A welcoming side entry door leads to an entry alcove workspace that is open to the large garage bay. Beautiful and functional large grid concrete floors are stained a warm brown. Vaulted ceilings with transom windows make an open and bright space. Beautiful support beams and wood stairs create a warm and inviting “mancave”. Above, an iron railing balcony loft has a wet bar with seating, lounge area, and wall of built-ins for entertainment. There is a dressing room outfitted with a shower, sink, and closet, on the first floor. It’s a gorgeous building loaded with space for versatile use! Outside, a slanted trim detail shades and protects cars parked along the building under the porte cochere with side entry door. On the opposite side of the building, there is even an RV plug
At the far end of the property is a large Hardie clad center aisle barn. The barn stays comfortable with wide sliding doors facing east and west for ventilation. It’s outfitted with an interior tack room, a feed room, and space for four stalls. The roof is of premium steel and has integrated guttering in the trim. There is a large compressor in the entry that will stay with the property whose line runs underground to the workshop so it can be used there without the noise! A parking pad for unloading hay or trailer parking is on the back side. Pasture fencing is designed to fully enclose one end of the barn. The pasture is well planned and nicely gated for both drive through walk through access.
