Enter through the impressive oversized arched top door with water glass window to find yourself in an inviting and warm home. You’ll notice the open and spacious connected flow of the rooms. Warm almond lines the walls and the richly stained espresso of the hand scraped hardwood floor is set off by crisp white trim of deep baseboards and crowned with substantial 2 stage molding. The stair sweeps up to the left in the iconic graceful curve. The upper landing level and entry surround is accented with the arched theme recessed niches.
To your right from the entry are the formal living and dining rooms. In the living room a large front facing bay of windows fills the room with light. The use of this space is delineated by columns repeating the wide arched opening detail. The living and dining rooms are open and roomy and feel even more grand because of the shared use of space and soaring ceilings of the entry. The formal space is defined from the entry by the transition from the wood floor to a honed travertine. The finish and arched openings to divide the use of the rooms gives a rustic understated elegance to the space. A wall of windows overlooking the side yard is along one wall of the dining. A medallion set chandelier hangs centered in a tiered tray ceiling. Just beyond the dining room and off a hall is the homes half bath.
Across the entry hall from the dining is a pass-through butler pantry and wine bar to the kitchen. Stained furniture finish cabinetry and upper glass cabinets lend to the formal feel. There is an under counter wine chiller here and plenty of counter space for ease of entertaining and wonderful access between the dining room and the chef’s kitchen.
At the end of the entry arrive at the great room and kitchen area. The family room living area is on the light and warm stone floor. A back wall of floor to ceiling windows floods the space with light and views to the lush backyard. Nestled in the corner along the back wall of the living area, an elegant and imposing floor to ceiling fireplace of Granbury chop stone, anchors the space. The fireplace has integrated hearth, brick lined firebox and hearth top, gas start, and heavy wood trimmed floating mantel shelf. The living area is open to the kitchen and breakfast room but divided from the busy work of the kitchen by a peninsula island bar.
Notice how the kitchen and breakfast room floor transitions back to the wood. Sitting on this lovely floor is a well-designed luxury kitchen. Custom furniture finish cabinetry painted in a creamy antiqued white is effortlessly beautiful, heavily crowned, topped with striking contrast granite countertops, and a backsplash of tumbled creamy stone. The hood surround build out makes an impressive statement over the gas range. With a full stainless luxury appliance suite, and extra deep double sink, this is a beautifully hardworking kitchen. Conveniently located in a corner of the kitchen workspace is a door pantry for dry good storage.
The breakfast room is open to the living area and kitchen. It is a lovely open space situated at the end of the kitchen. The wall of windows continues, and a door to the patio and large grassy yard is just around a corner.
The master suite is located off the side hall from the breakfast room area. The massive master suite opens before you with dramatic high ceilings. A triple tier tray ceiling is dressed formally in crown molding at each corner. A bay wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooks the back yard and gardens. The bay window area is roomy enough for a reading nook or a conversation set.
Vanity walls are on opposite sides of the room with a deep jetted tub centered in the space. Beyond the tub, behind a full glass door is a dramatic double shower. Two rain heads hang from the ceiling with bronze finished pipe that is too pretty to be behind walls. Furniture finish vanities and panels for the tub deck are richly stained in ebony, and granite tops have a medium movement in a black and brown giallo. Light stone floors of honed travertine tile and tub deck and wall is the perfect neutral tone balance for this impressive and elegant masters retreat.
Off the master bath is a spacious dressing room. The master closet is well designed and beautifully appointed with open shelf storage and generous amounts of hanging space.
The hall that leads to the half bath from the entry hall and dining room continues to a beautiful downstairs in-law suite. The wood floor continues and is elegant and striking in this sunny room.

This room is perfectly set up to function as a guest space or home office with a separate entry and a pool bath.
From the butler pantry and the kitchen is a door to the laundry keeping things quiet and contained. The laundry has furniture finish closed cabinetry storage, a mud room hanging and cubby bench, and a utility deep sink. This room is ready to get to work and look good doing it. Inside the laundry is access to the two-car garage. Another single bay garage is located at the other end of the two-car bay. The single car access bay is access via the hall at the side of the space. There are built in cabinets, hanging grid storage, and room for a workspace.
