Designed and built in 2007-2008 by Raymond Herpers Custom Homes and the current homeowner, this is the first time that this home has been presented on the market. The construction quality is evident from rafters to foundation: Double Teco hurricane anchors at each roof truss and the foundation is four-inch structural slab on ten-feet piers. Abundant storage, impeccable organization, room for expansion and many thoughtful details are here which are not found in other homes of this price point. Gorgeous stone colors and textures polished to smooth perfection throughout the home: Brazilian granite, marble, onyx, and limestone. Solid and unwavering brick exterior as well. This could be the strongest house in Texas: as they say, everything is bigger in TX!
A reflection of custom home design and desire for elbow room, this home is big, inside and out.
The plan is all about uninterrupted flow: from kitchen to dining area to family room; from family room to covered patio; from master bedroom suite to luxurious master bath with double sinks, separate shower and air jet spa tub with lighting features. It's a style as expansive as the American dream. Oversized windows let light stream into interior spaces. Second-story interiors that are open to below. A roof with contrasting peaks and heights, double hurricane anchors at all trusses and rafters, plus radiant barrier to keep bills lower. Garages feature three stalls and ample room for storage. This two-story, all brick exterior facade, its roofs with peaks and pitches to accommodate interior vaulted ceilings uses transitional and traditional elements to make its bold architectural statement.
You are greeted at the entry with an inviting piano, two stories of natural light and expansive walls for your art collection, a sweeping staircase, and a neutral palette. A line of sight pulls you through the large living area which is flanked by a beautiful cast stone fireplace, soothing music with speakers embedded in the ceiling above, to French doors that open to a majestic covered patio and the grassy backyard beyond.
The patio is an extension of the indoor living spaces and has an outdoor fireplace, plenty of room for a dining area and a living area, and it is TV ready for your future Super Bowl parties. Separate French doors connect to the classic formal dining room, painted handsomely and rich, ready for dinner parties that flow indoors and out. Backyard barbeques are a must with this covered patio, dining and living spaces that extend indoors, and a grassy yard with blooming flowerbeds and beautiful trees for sense of privacy. Lush landscaping with prize magnolias, colorful crepe myrtles, blooming flowers, a green lawn, and a sprinkler system designed to support it all effortlessly.
A chef’s dream awaits in the kitchen with choice stainless steel appliances including a commercial-style Viking® six-burner gas range with pot filler above and warming drawer below, an extra-wide built-in refrigerator with double doors and bottom mount freezer drawer, Dacor® dual ovens, dual dishwashers, dual sinks, and peg-organized drawers for dishes: all allow for a possible Kosher kitchen. Upon touring, the drawers and cabinets must be opened and explored to see the true customization that this kitchen offers. ORGANIZATION is abundant. Design surprises are literally in every corner. A blind lazy susan design in a corner cabinet allows 4x storage capacity and quick access to your most important kitchen tools and accessories. The walk-in pantry has a counter which could easily be your coffee bar.
On the west side of the entry staircase is a study. This savvy study has wonderful windows for inspiring natural light, handsome wood finishes, a coffered ceiling, and is most discreet with a secret entrance from the master bedroom closet.
Confident in design. The master bedroom suite is privately located on the west side of the first floor. A cast stone fireplace and sitting sitting area provide a cozy retreat. Impressive windows allow cheerful natural light and beautiful views to the lush landscaped backyard, plus access to the covered patio and outdoor living spaces. The master bath has it all: separate shower with dual shower heads, a rain feature from the ceiling, body sprays, a large air jet tub with LED for soaking and spa nights, designer tiles and stonework, separate vanities, and a walk-in closet with superb storage designs. All of these details in the master and the connection to the study make a truly serene retreat fit to win design and layout awards.
This lovely home is waiting to be filled with new memories.
Tall ceilings, tons of light, the openness to the kitchen, and the access to the outdoor living spaces in the backyard, combine the best of old styling with the way that we all want to live today. There is plenty of elbow room here.
