Let the games begin. Gin Rummy anyone? It’s a long standing family tradition that whenever my mother-in-law is with her grandchildren, they all play cards. Usually they play on the dining room table after dinner.

But oh, how cool to have a room devoted entirely to card (or other!) games!Flex Room down with huge hide-away closet-storm shelter. Coffere

But wait, there is way more to 1220 Wyndham Hill Lane in Southlake than a card room. The home is on about three-quarters of one quite lush acre tucked into an exclusive gated community called Wyndham Hill estates located not too far from South White Chapel Boulevard. Designed and built by David Lewis, it also backs to a park and green belt so you have the feel of being in the total boonies, more remote than you could possibly imagine.

And the nice thing about Southlake, is that you ARE in the boonies: cattle graze down the road, a few peeps keep horses. But Southlake Town Center snaps you right back into Pleasantville with everything from yogurt to Lily Pulitzer at your manicured fingertips.

The home was built in 1997, but remodeled a few years ago to the Nth degree, Nancy tells me. The estate has more than 8,000 square feet of living space. Walk into a stunning foyer with a dramatic circular staircase and overhead rotunda. The formal living is just that — a room for the grown ups, which can be observed from the second story balcony.

Why does this home remind me of The Sound of Music?

The interiors boast travertine, wood and Stark Carpet flooring, wonderful detailing, stunning ceilings and moldings. There is a home theater,  a game room with a mini kitchen and bar — really, that game room bar is larger than standard apartment kitchen. There is a study, a sauna, exercise room, five bedrooms, four full and one half baths, four living areas and an outdoor living wonderland. The master suite is huge and anchored with a luxurious master spa bath. Oh and the sauna is located off the card room. So finish your hand, hop in the sauna, then take an icy plunge in the pool come November, December or January. Talk about healthy living!

What amazes me is the price. The home is more than 8,000 square feet large and loaded, yet Nancy Dennis with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s is asking a mere $2,160,000. And that is it for ALL of this!

No wonder this area is looking more and more attractive to home buyers. You want to talk stellar schools? Check. It’s all right here in Southlake on Wyndham Hill Lane… and in the cards!
