This wonderful home is located in Fairview’s Summer Hill Farms, one of the most popular developments in Fairview.
People love this development because
- it’s right down the street from all the shopping, dining, and entertainment at Stacy Rd and 75
- it offers very quick access to both Central Expressway (Hwy 75), SH 121 (to DFW Airport) and both Plano and Frisco.
- kids can walk right across the street (or take the bus) to Lovejoy Elementary, Lovejoy’s first school where the tradition started. Lovejoy is one of Texas’ perennial top school districts
- you can still buy an affordable home here. The homes are of a nice age, not so old that they require extensive updating, but certainly not nearly as expensive as the new homes coming out of the ground. FYI, the average price of new homes in Fairview is now $1 million (per Fairview Mayor Darion Culbertson, and he would know)
This is a wonderfully updated and meticulously maintained home, located in the sought after neighborhood of Summer Hill in Fairview, Texas. The private and serene community is well laid out with mature landscaping. The home’s drive up appeal is undeniable.

The interior of this Tim Jackson custom home is beautifully appointed with many thoughtful upgrades, copious smart built-ins for storage, first floor bedrooms, and spa oasis backyard, making this one and half story home perfect for gracious entertaining and modern family life.

The impressive iron entry door with wrought iron grill work and an operable opening for airflow on those perfect cool mornings makes a dramatic statement. This beautifully substantial door is accented with rippled water glass for distorted view and solid construction for absolute security. Upon entry, the home feels upscale and formal, yet comfortably casual. Dramatic high ceilings, large windows, arched openings, column treatments, extensive millwork, and handsome finishes, make for wonderfully planned, open-concept living for friends and family to enjoy. A stretch of warm ivory tile gives the feel of Tuscan stone, and lines the floors from entry to the great room continuing through the kitchen and halls. The home is flooded with natural light as walls of windows overlook the pool yard. Interiors are painted in a warm on-trend palette of deep warm putty and neutral designer colors. This home features 8-foot doors that accentuate and compliment the ceiling height. Soaring ceilings are trimmed in custom millwork and illuminated by designer lighting selections that complement the spaces perfectly.
On either side of the entry hall is an opening to a warm and welcoming room. The dining room to your right is accented with columned treatment arched opening to the foyer and open to the great room on the adjacent wall. A front facing window has plantation shutters for a tailored look inside and out. Wide chair railing, deep stack crown molding, and wide baseboards accent the space and lends formality. The trim being painted a crisp clean white adds interest without feeling stuffy. The dining room sits on a beautifully finished hardwood floor in a warm chestnut color. A dramatic, shaded, chandelier suspended over the table space adds an elegant glow for dinners.

The fireplace has a gorgeous slab granite firebox surround and is bordered with a stately trimmed mantel shelf, side legs, and over the mantel backdrop panel wall. A central fan with lights is centered in the space. A raised bar peninsula area divides the kitchen workspace from the living area.
As you enter the kitchen and breakfast room area the floor transitions back to the large tile. The deckled edge gives a warm rustic feel. Custom furniture finish cabinetry stained in a light neutral wash is impressive topped with countertops and backsplash in solid slab luxury granite. The kitchen features a high end full stainless appliance suite, vent hood, pot filler over a gas range, double ovens, prep sink, extra deep double work sink, and pendent lights.

The room is adorned with built in shelves, and an entertainment cabinet over a drawered armoire area. There is also a side access atrium door to the pool and spa area creating a true masters retreat. The master bath is home to a large soaking tub and a spa inspired floor to ceiling glass block, double entry shower.

The laundry room has a separate door to keep noise and piles contained. The large laundry room has plenty of breathing space to tackle the tasks of a busy home.
Just beyond the breakfast room and pantry is the garage access and mud room passage hall. The mud room boasts smart and functional built-in cabinetry. Designed with loads of closed storage space, room for hanging, and bench with storage. This is a convenient coat and gear storage area.
A garage access door is at the end of the mudroom bench and leads to three oversized garage bays. This is a seriously roomy garage with room for 3 vehicles and workspace with additional room for freezer/refrigerator. One bay has a single door and the other two spaces have a double door entry. Cabinetry, cabinetry, and more cabinetry! Upper closed cabinets and under-counter drawers and doors for storage, along with loads of counter space and a deep utility sink create a wonderful workshop area. Along the front workspace of the garage there is a window so the large space is very pleasant with natural light.
Designer carpeting lines the stairs, for comfort and quiet. Once upstairs, you’ll find another full bath and a large game/ media room. The media room is a spacious and generously sized room. Upgraded appointments of above-crown lighting, column treatments with sconces, and recessed can lighting brighten up this hangout area for family and friends. At the far end of the room, windows flank French doors leading to the upper balcony. The large covered balcony is the perfect spot to watch the day come to a close. The upper balcony is situated for privacy along the back of the home.
The front of the home is gracious and inviting with a wide side entry garage and front circular drive. The medium red brick surround is set off against stone trimmed windows. The rich masonry details are a lovely contrast to the landscaping of lush mature plantings. Special attention was paid to provide year-round interest with structure, color, and shade trees.
At the back of the home, columns add definition, structure, and weight to the covered porch off the living area and breakfast room. This covered porch gives you hours of enjoyment in the secluded, sanctuary backyard. Beyond the covered porch is the totally private resort style pool. Sitting on an expansive concrete patio, the outdoor living area and pool makes a statement. Oklahoma flagstone coping is surrounding the pool. The spa is raised centerstage and makes a lovely focal point from the living area. On one corner of the pool yard sits a generously proportioned pergola, creating a shaded sitting area and allowing for more vertical screening and privacy. There is a large grass area beyond.
