This beautifully updated home is perfectly on trend with contemporary rustic country comfort and upscale grandeur. Situated on an oversized lot, the brick and natural stone combination of this stately home cut an impressive profile. The Interior flows with deep espresso wood floors, modern finishes, upgraded materials, and two bedroom suites downstairs. The pool and outdoor living area are a retreat in themselves. Easy commuting, nearby world class amenities, and exemplary Lovejoy ISD, combine to make this home the perfect choice.
Upon entry through the dramatic and impressive wrought iron and glass door you’ll see a beautiful warm wood floor laid out before you. Hand scraped finish on a warm coffee brown hardwood is accented with high double relief baseboards making a sharp and distinctive statement. The home is dressed in colors of comforting grey and taupe toned neutrals. Elements of wrought iron, rubbed antique bronze and mixed metals create an elegant and modern feel. The continuous floors of richly stained wood, crisp painted cabinetry, luxurious patterned tiles, shiplap accented walls, and soaring ceilings accentuate the home’s architectural details and highlight the upscale casual comfort.
Standing in the large entry you notice the openness of this home. The common living spaces are before you, with a large game room, an open living area, dining room, and the gracefully curved stair. With painted wood trimmed steps, an offset open basket and twisted wrought iron spindles and designer carpet upholstered on the steps for quiet and comfort, the stairs add an elegant flare.
To your left a pair of glass doors open to a large series of rooms. This first large space is a dramatic room with walls of massive front facing windows. A large alcove space at the back has brick paved floors and is accessed at the far end of the larger room by an impressive custom barn door. Off the alcove room is a full bathroom with a huge closet area. Currently in use as the game room, this space is versatile and would function as a formal living area, library, impressive home office, or music room.
On the opposite side of the large entry hall is a spacious dining room. Windows to the front yard flood the room with natural light. The space is generous and roomy to host years of wonderful family memories. A chair rail over picture frame detail accents the lower portion of the walls and accentuates the rooms generous scale. A modern industrial fixture illuminates the space.
Beyond the entry is the living room. The large room has views through a back wall of windows to the pool yard. The well-proportioned room is cozy and open at the same time. A wide opening to the side lead you to the kitchen area.
Entering the kitchen, you will be astounded by the beautiful attention to detail. Ship lap walls, surrounding floor to ceiling smart and well planned built ins, are just one of the lovely accents. A continual wall of built in cabinetry with top-of-the-line appliances create a true chef’s kitchen. The central island is painted in a creamy deep grey taupe and is perfectly on trend, highly functional, and exceptionally beautiful. Cabinetry is all custom furniture finish. Walls and the surrounding cabinetry are painted in a contrasting white for a modern and bright space.
The breakfast nook sits at the back of the home, overlooking the pool, just at the end of the kitchen. With an atrium door to the covered porch this breakfast nook enjoys the views of the stunning backyard. An additional side door exit leads to the breezeway and the garage.
Behind the kitchen and next to the dining room is a wonderful home command center. A charming room with over-scale patterned tile floor and ship lap walls complete with a high functioning desk. It is a perfect spot to run the home and keep things organized.
Next to the office is one of two downstairs bedrooms. The bedroom has lovely window views to the front yard, and a generous walk in closet. A full bath is on suite and done in bold off-black and white. Graphic tile floor shows off the vanity and wonderfully modern frameless shower with white subway and pencil detail.
Conveniently located, with a door of its own to the breezeway, is the mudroom. The huge space is too beautiful to have “mud” in its name. Let’s just call it the “Sunroom Entry”! A huge closet area for seasonal storage and equipment is located here for a beautifully functioning work room.
The laundry has a separate door to keep things quiet and contained. Inside there is a fun patterned tile floor, upper and lower cabinetry, and loads of counterspace for folding. A sink area, room for two oversized sets of washer dryers, hanging area, and tons of storage make this wonderful workspace a pleasure to spend time in.

The earth tone neutrals are continued throughout the master suite and the floor transitions to tile in a modern plank tile, with shiplap accent walls of soft vanilla for a relaxing feel. Marble subway tile surrounds the shower enclosure and ceiling with subtle grey veining. There is plenty of natural daylight in the space. The tub sits below a large shuttered window for privacy. Vanity mirrors are surrounded in a substantial furniture finish frame. Vanities are topped in a creamy white with grey veining, vessel sinks, and modern faucets in satin nickel.
Enter the master closet from the bath through a second door. This is a generous and spacious closet. Recently updated, the space provides ample storage for shoes, his and hers hanging area, and an open center dressing area. A door on the opposite end of the closet opens into the master suite entry area.
Just off the master hall entry is a passage with a storage closet and entrance to the pool bath. The pool bath is exceptionally roomy with a back door to the pool beyond, shower, pedestal sink, and plenty of space for hanging pool towels!
Upstairs, you find three more bedrooms, three bathrooms, a family room area, and a huge media/entertaining space. The gorgeous wood floors are continued upstairs and in the bedrooms. The family room is generous in scale and has a dormered back wall of windows. Double doors open to a huge room that runs alongside of the upper family room and is currently in use as a classroom.

One bedroom shares a double vanity bathroom with the common rooms through hall access. Bathrooms have modern look vintage mosaic patterned floors, marble vanity tops, well planned cabinetry and storage, subway tiled showers, and glass shower enclosures.
The 2-story home makes an impressive statement with random set field chop stone accented with antique red brick basket weave surround. The red brick is continued for the rest of the exterior. Keystone accents over arched doors and openings, brick offset patterns, dormered windows, and multiple roof peaks, add interest to the home’s front facade. The home is set deep off the street with a side entry drive to the 4-car garage. From the street front, there is a large sidewalk path that leads to an enclosed arched entry. Landscaped foundation plantings along the house are mature plantings of evergreen and flowering shrubs, deciduous plantings, as well as several substantial shade trees further out in the yard.
In the backyard enjoy your own private oasis and outdoor playground! Just off the house is a covered porch with an attached extended open roof shade pergola. Another pergola is off the back of the pool between the water feature and the garage, creating a lovely area for al fresco dining poolside. Pergolas are solidly constructed and built to last with heavy cedar post columns and corbel supports at the roof overhang. The brick patio floor covers the expanse of the covered area just off the house and the outdoor kitchen and living area under the shade pergola. The counter and workspace of the kitchen side is balanced by half walls and a dramatic outdoor fireplace on the living space side. A gate entry leads to the pool yard. The huge pool is surrounded by a large grassy yard with ample room to play. The pool has a large sundeck area next to a natural boulder water feature, several bench seating areas, and is large enough to host the entire neighborhood. The fencing is airy and allows for unobstructed views to the stunning open green lawn surrounding.
