Welcome home! This beautiful craftsman-style home exudes warmth and grace as you enter the circular drive. Surrounded by mature trees and situated on a park-like acre of land, you can enjoy country living while being part of the exceptional Lovejoy ISD and only minutes away from every amenity available. The striking exterior of this home combines sweeping curves and dormer windows for a look that is universally loved, and the interior is no less impressive. Rich hardwoods, deep baseboards, plantation shutters, eight-foot doors, and soaring ceilings create a spacious and welcoming elegance that you are sure to enjoy.
As you step through the large front doors with their graceful curve and stunning leaded-glass detail, you immediately sense the warmth and elegance of this house. A beautiful staircase is bathed in light from the two-story foyer and draws your eye upward to the second-story landing above, while beneath your feet the rich hand-scraped hardwood floor extends further into the house and invites you to follow. To your right is a gracious formal living room, and beyond it is a beautifully-appointed study. To your left is the formal dining room with a butler’s pantry leading to the kitchen. Straight ahead, through a welcoming arch, is the entrance to the kitchen and the gathering room.
The elegant fireplace is the focal point of the formal living room. Its crisp white mantle matches the beautiful built-in shelving that flanks it on either side. On the opposite wall large curved windows wash the room in natural light and are thoughtfully framed in a wide white trim that echoes the mantel and shelves. The warm hardwood floors from the entry continue through the living room and into the study beyond, providing continuity and warmth to the space as your guests enjoy laughter and conversation.
Beautiful wood-and-glass French doors lead from the formal living room into the study. Custom built-in shelving is painted white and provides ample display space. Multiple windows bath the room in light, while vaulted ceilings contribute to the expansive and rich feel of the room. This is a room where you can comfortably work from home. Solid double doors lead into the master bedroom with its luxurious spa-inspired bath.
The serene master suite is your place to get away from it all. Thoughtfully secluded at the back corner of the house, the private and spacious master suite features a warm fireplace and a wall of windows that flood the room with natural light. Handscraped hardwood floors continue into the master and anchor the space with their rich warmth. This generous room has ample space to include a relaxing sitting area where you can enjoy views of your peaceful backyard with mature trees and the swimming pool. Elegant plantation shutters provide privacy, while a private door leads to your outdoor living area. A second door accesses the master bath, and this newly-renovated luxury resort spa bath is truly breathtaking! A glass wall sparkles and bathes the room in light, highlighting the deep Bain Ultra soaking tub that is centered before it. Opposite the tub, elegant cabinet doors open and frame the gas fireplace that is shared with the master bedroom. In the corner a large door of frameless glass stands open, inviting you into a luxurious steam shower tiled in light marble. A brand-new vanity, mirrors, and lighting provide beautiful finishing touches to a room where you can truly get away from it all. The master closet is well-designed with open storage, built-in drawers, out-of-season storage, and generous amounts of hanging space.
Located immediately to the left of the foyer, the formal dining room is open and spacious. Hand scraped hardwood floors continue from the entry through the dining room and the butler’s pantry beyond. A crisp white chair rail adds character to the room, while wide white trim frames the gracefully arched windows with their views of the trees and curved front drive. A thoughtful walk-through butler’s pantry allows for effortless access to the kitchen. The warm wood cabinetry of the butler’s pantry includes a sink, built-in wine storage, and space for a wine chiller. A generous storage closet has ample room for linens, serving dishes, and seasonal decorations. Everything you need for the perfect dinner party is right at hand for easy entertaining.
Continuing through the butler’s pantry you will find a large and delightful kitchen. Warm wood cabinets have areas of glass accents for light and balance and perfectly complement the granite countertops with their generous workspace. The Sub-Zero refrigerator has integrated panel doors for a unified look, while the other top-flight appliances include a five-burner gas stove, Bosch double wall ovens, and an under-counter microwave drawer. Two Bosch dishwashers ensure that cleanup is a breeze. The open floor plan provides views of the fireplace beyond while still affording generous amounts of storage in the cabinets and walk-in pantry. Framed by elegant white columns, the large island divides the kitchen from the gathering room yet still allows laughter and conversation to flow freely as meals are prepared.
Beyond the kitchen is the gathering room. Here two walls of windows and a vaulted ceiling add to the spaciousness of this large room. Plantation shutters open onto pleasant views of the landscaped backyard and swimming pool and allow natural light to flood the room. The focal point of the room, however, is the large stone fireplace that divides the gathering room from the breakfast room. This wood-burning fireplace is open on three sides, adding warmth to both the gathering room and the breakfast room. The warm glow of a fire will make this room a favorite place to gather and play games in the evenings.
Beyond the gathering room is the casual dining room. This bright and inviting space is open to both the kitchen and gathering room. A perfect place for morning coffee, it features windows trimmed in crisp white along two walls, offering views of the back yard and driveway. Hardwood floors continue from the gathering room and the kitchen, seamlessly unifying the spaces. The stone fireplace lends warmth and character, while a simple but elegant chandelier enhances the beauty of the space.
The home’s powder bath is thoughtfully located next to the kitchen. Painted in a warm neutral that contrasts the rich tones of the wood vanity and hardwood floor, this charming half bath is both stylish and functional.
A short hallway leads from the kitchen to the guest suite. Situated at the far end of the house, away from the master bedroom and main living areas, this first-floor guest suite offers private and comfortable quarters for your overnight guests. The cozy guest room features a walk-in closet and private full bath with a generous linen closet. Deep baseboards, a chair rail, and crown moulding add richness while the white paint creates unity between the guest suite and the rest of your home.
Walking across the hall from the kitchen you will find a generously proportioned room that serves as both the mudroom and the laundry room. This room was designed to organize and contain the life of a busy household. Two walls of upper and lower closed cabinets offer ample storage and counter space. Additionally, a large closet is available to hide away shoes, backpacks, and coats. The opposite end of the room features space for a large washer and dryer and a second refrigerator if desired. A sink is added for convenience. A door in the mudroom connects the home to a large garage with bays for 3 cars, as well as built-in shelving for any extra storage you may need.
Ascend the stairs to the large game room, three bedrooms, and a generous bonus room. Plush carpet runs throughout the second floor. The game room is open to the entry below through the continued stairway railing. Natural light fills the space and accentuates the soaring ceilings. A shelved closet keeps games neatly tucked away.
All three upstairs bedrooms feature window seats with plantation shutters. To the right of the game room two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill access to the wet room, each with its own sink area. The front bedroom has an en-suite bath with a door open to the game room.
A door to the left of the game room leads to a very generous bonus room. Charming dormer windows flood the space with light and offer views of the side driveway. Additional features include a utility room and walk-in attic access, complete with a fully-lined cedar closet.
The home’s light stone and warm cedar contrast the crisp white trim to create a timeless look that has universal appeal. Mature trees lend a stately elegance to the front of this stunning home while multiple roof peaks and arched windows add interest to the facade. The beautifully arched entry and graceful sweep of the roof invite you up the short walk from the circular drive.
In the fully fenced backyard, a covered porch makes a large outdoor living area. The kitchen is just steps away, make it easy to dine al fresco on relaxing summer evenings. Ceiling fans help keep the space comfortable and cool. The beautiful patio extends beyond the covered porch to the landscaped pool with relaxing fountain feature. Beyond the pool, mature trees provide cool shade on summer days and contribute to the natural beauty of this spacious backyard. A play structure stands ready to provide hours of fun for the younger set, while older ones can engage in some friendly disc-golf competition. Thoughtful touches both inside and out make this Oakwood Trail home perfect for your family. Welcome home!
