We drove out to Sachse last night to barbecue and watch fireworks with my cousin and his family. It was so delightful to get away from the city for the evening and enjoy a little small town patriotism. The weather was perfect to pull up a chair in their front yard and watch the fireworks after filling our bellies.
The only way it would have been the quintessential July Fourth experience (to me, at least) was if we had watched the fireworks while bobbing in the pool, with an outdoor kitchen close at hand to refresh our drinks. Really, so many homes have great outdoor spaces that when it comes to celebrating, you never need to go inside save for a trip to the lavatory.
That’s what makes this North Richland Hills home so great. It’s out of the way but not too far in the fabulous Forrest Glen West subdivision, with three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and more than 3,200 square feet. Outside you’ll find a three-car garage, a saltwater pool, and a great pergola and outdoor kitchen for hosting your Fourth of July bash!
This great traditional at 7929 Green Valley Drive is listed for a recently reduced $394,000 (down from $400,000) by Marcy Barkenmeyer of Keller Williams Realty. Built in 2004, the interiors are pristine and ready for a family to make it their own!
The kitchen is great for entertaining with double ovens and a breakfast bar. And the family room is spacious and looks out to the huge backyard. You have formals and a study in this home, with a main-floor master suite and plenty of room for kids to stake their claim. Speaking of kids, the schools in North Richland Hills are excellent.
But really, let’s talk about all the entertaining you’ll do in this huge, lovely backyard. There’s plenty of lawn for ladder toss, playing catch, or throwing a football around. There’s a lovely little saltwater pool and a huge patio, as well as a good-sized loggia and a pergola that covers your outdoor kitchen where you can grill burgers and dogs until dark!
Wouldn’t you love to watch the fireworks from here?
