Welcome home to this one of a kind, custom built, two family estate. This is definitely not a cookie cutter home, but a rare find! This property is located on a quiet street in the heart of Southlake overlooking a small lake and fountain. The home is beautifully landscaped with low maintenance greenery, allowing you to spend more time sipping tea on the terrace, enjoying the outdoor kitchen, or taking a dip in the sparkling pool.

This two family estate offers a flexible floor plan allowing it to be used by one or multiple families. With its separate entries and garages, you can be as connected or isolated as you desire. The contiguous second home design is a wonderful arrangement enabling parents or in-laws, adult children that need their own space, or even a live-in nanny to be on premise while having their own space and complete privacy. It is an amazing floorplan arrangement.



The foyer of the parent home is open and inviting. You will immediately notice the warmth and richness of the hand-scraped wood flooring. The custom arches and columns give it a very grand feel. It opens to a spacious combination area that can be used for formal living and dining rooms. Both rooms have matching chandeliers that give the design a cohesive look. The front windows are beautifully arched complementing the arched entry. The front windows overlook the beautifully manicured front yard and private circular drive, while the windows to the back overlook the pristine turquoise pool and outdoor kitchen. All windows are covered with custom plantation shutters. Off of the foyer is a large home office with custom built in desk and shelving. It has rheostat lighting, a ceiling fan with light fixture, as well as speed control/dimmer switches on the wall. The two windows overlook the front porch, and the natural light creates a bright, pleasant workspace. The office is complete with a storage closet giving this room even more potential to be used to suit your personal needs. For utmost convenience, a half bath is steps away situated in the hallway off of the formal living and dining areas.

The hallway leading to the private master wing is adorned with a wall niche to display art or floral arrangements drawing you right into the elegant master suite. The master bedroom is the perfect place to start and end your day. It is a space designed with both beauty and comfort in mind. The suite’s double doors open to a large bedroom with multiple furniture placement options. Three large windows offer plenty of natural light while capitalizing the spectacular views while the custom plantation shutters provide the necessary privacy. A ceiling fan will keep you comfortable and you won’t even need to leave the coziness of your bed to change the settings with the convenient fan remote. The thoughtful design and planning of the master bath create a spa-like ambience. Gorgeous his-and-her vanities add beauty while giving you ample space for any morning and evening rituals. You will feel like you are in a resort while enjoying the soaker tub or two person shower complete with personal sprayers, two shower heads, a large built- in seat, and an overhead rain feature. The water closet is completely separate allowing for maximum privacy. The master closet is nothing short of a work of art, combining luxury without any wasted space. The brilliant storage solutions are a dream. Custom built shelving and hanging rods wrap the room (yes, it is as large as a room). Self-closing drawers and a shoe and boot cabinet will meet all of your storage needs. A built in ironing board station is conveniently located behind the closet door. The simple, yet elegant drum chandelier is like the cherry on top of this must-see master closet.

   
 


On the opposite wing of the primary house is the heart of the home, the eat-in gourmet kitchen. This very spacious area is sure to be a gathering spot for the family. With its elegant dark wood cabinetry, accented beautifully with translucent seeded glass, and the granite counter tops, this kitchen is sure to please the chef in you. It is equipped with a professional grade eight burner gas stove and oven in a stainless steel finish. Directly above the stove is an exquisite tile backsplash that leads all the way up to the gorgeous, custom, weathered copper vent hood. The stove also has a pot filler for your cooking convenience. Across the kitchen is the copper farm sink. It is equipped with a stainless steel microwave and dishwasher as well. For extra counter space and storage, a movable island is situated in the center of the kitchen. It also has ample storage with many cabinets, self-closing drawers, and a floor to ceiling pantry with custom pull out shelving. Just off the kitchen is the breakfast nook area with vistas of the backyard patio and pool. The kitchen also is open to the large family room. It is
 perfect for entertaining; you will not miss a second of the game while preparing your halftime snacks. The family room has a grand stone fireplace, multiple windows with custom plantation shutters, two different lighting options, as well as a ceiling fan. It is also open to a dining area off of the kitchen. A small hallway off of the family room takes you to three good sized bedrooms each with their own custom closets. A lovely bathroom separates two of the bedrooms. The bathroom has granite countertops, his and her sinks, a bathtub and a tile shower.
Upstairs is a must-see. At the top of the landing is a door on the left that opens up to every kid’s dream hideout. With an angled ceiling and a raised entry, this would be the perfect hang out spot for kids of any age. The second floor also has a flexible floorplan allowing you to separate the two homes, or combine them by utilizing the space as a common area. It has a large second family room or game room, a bedroom and closet, and spacious bathroom with a double vanity, a bathtub, and a shower. At the end of the hallway is a door leading to an enormous semi-finished attic space that will amply meet all your storage needs.

Heading down a back staircase is the secondary home. The stairs open up to completely separate, yet self-sufficient, beautiful home. This living space offers its own entry way, porch and its own one car garage. It has a large family room with a custom built in entertainment center and fireplace. The open kitchen, complete with all amenities and appliances overlooks the family room. It also has granite countertops perfect for barstools. The custom cabinetry lines the walls and offers plenty of storage. An adorable frosted glass door labeled “pantry” and its three designer pendant lights add more custom touches. This floor offers its own master suite with crown molding, plush carpet, a large walk in custom closet, and a very luxurious master bath. The master bathroom has a corner garden bathtub, a separate water closet, and his and her vanity spaces. The secondary home is complete with its own full sized laundry room that opens up to the shared backyard space.

The backyard is an oasis. It truly offers the best of all worlds with a stunning swimming pool, a beautiful covered stone patio, a custom outdoor kitchen, lovely grassy space, and even an area to garden. The backyard also is equipped with multiple storage buildings. A stone fence lines the side of the yard and a wooden fence completely encloses the yard at the back of the property.

The front of the house is directly across from a small pond with a water feature adding to its resort like feel. Although situated in a very quiet neighborhood, this home is close to all the upscale shopping and dining at the popular Southlake Town Square. Entertainment of all kinds surrounds the area. There are many dining options within a five minute drive. Whether you are craving filet mignon, Tex-Mex, sushi, or stone oven pizza, they’re all mere minutes away.

This home combines an unbeatable location, ideal school district, and spectacular custom features with the most amazing and unique two-family living arrangement.
