Monday Morning Millionaire: Nothing Says “Relaxation” Like Having Your Own Backyard Waterfall

Share News:

Let’s say you’re tired of the hustle and bustle of city life and you want your own spot in the country to relax, raise a few kids, all while conveniently close to Lake Lewisville. Oh, and you want a waterfall in your backyard.

You are in luck.

This six bedroom, five-and-a-half bath stunner in Aubrey has plenty of room for a family (and then some!) with a craft room, a gigantic kitchen, and a huge patio all on more than an acre. It’s inside Stone Mountain Estates, a gated community where your nearest neighbor isn’t too close for comfort.

I know someone is going to ask: The HOA fees are $600 a month year. Considering the price tag on 5475 Summit Trace, a 5,283-square-foot home, let’s just say that if you need to eat balogna sandwiches and ramen noodles to afford the HOA fees mortgage, then this house isn’t for you.

I’ll tell you who this house could be for — Pilar Sanders. Why? Excellent schools in Aubrey ISD, a huge lot inside a gated community, a waterfall because she’ll need somewhere to meditate, and there’s a second floor bed/bath suite, which will be perfect for house guests. I wonder if Ebby agent Laura Brewer, who is marketing this home, has heard from our gal …

Now, this English traditional has a few things I am in love with that Pilar might not like so much, such as the copper soaking tub. These are so rare, but so awesome!

Also fantastic: The craft room. I’ve always wanted my own place to get creative. This would be equally cool as an art studio.

Something this size with all of these luxury touches, such as high-end Miele kitchen appliances and gorgeous wood floors, would go for $5 million and upwards inside Dallas County. In Denton County, though, it’ll set you back a cool $1,297,897.

    Loving that kitchen with all that beautiful cabinetry and the huge island. I wouldn't have picked out that chandelier for that island, but it does seem to work. Gives the traditional looking kitchen a slightly modern vibe.
    Ok, the practical side in me would prefer to use the money spent on a copper tub on something else, like a high end over-sized shower. The number of times I've used our tub in the last 5 years you can count on one hand.
    That craft room is huge and so bright. That would be a perfect schoolroom for us with entire walls of bookshelves for books and supplies. Love the wood flooring in there too.
