As far as amenities go, golf courses are on the way out in favor of low-maintenance, family-oriented splash pads and hike and bike trails. But for this lover of the links, there’s nothing quite like having a view of a lush, well-manicured fairway. For that reason, this 1970s soft contemporary in the beautiful Tarrant County suburb of Westover Hills has my heart.
Of course, the interiors have been completely updated and are absolutely luxurious, so that is a bonus. Jump to see inside this lovely listing from Williams Trew’s own Martha Williams.
Of course, I have to mention that this gorgeous home at 6224 Indian Creek Dr. has an equally well-manicured front yard, complete with wide slate walkway and a grassy spot that ensconces a lovely water feature. This bit of landscaping adds depth and interest to the home, and also provides a bit of transition between the curb and the formal areas.
There are five bedrooms, five full and one half baths, three living areas, two dining areas, two fireplaces, gorgeous designer lighting and luscious hardwood and stone floors throughout this home’s 6,091 square feet. It’s on the market for $2.95 million, which comes out to $484 per square foot.
There is a fantastic rhythm and openness to this home, which feels both rich and yet minimal. It’s a house that allows for the decor to speak for itself, an opportunity for a homeowner to curate its contents. The flow between the formal areas and the kitchen is punctuated by the floor-to-ceiling windows that take every advantage of the views to the 8th fairway at Shady Oaks Golf Course.
The kitchen and breakfast area hit a perfect transitional note, with drum shade hanging fixtures, warm wood cabinetry, stone counters, and professional-grade stainless steel appliances complete with a built-in stainless steel backsplash.
The master suite is downstairs and features those same gorgeous views you’ll love from the living rooms and kitchen, but you get the added benefit of a gorgeous, well-designed master bath with epic built-ins, a gorgeous bathtub, separate shower, and beautiful stone and hardwood everywhere. Also downstairs are two more bedrooms and two more baths.
The upstairs of the home has been recently renovated, and the buyer may choose the new carpet for the additional two bedrooms on this level. There is also a large game room or media/entertainment area that is perfect for hosting the younger set.
But if you are like me and you love the look of endless fescue and fairways, it’s the covered patio and backyard that is going to put you in a trance. I absolutely love this, and proudly toss my name into the fold of those who are pro-golf course. Truly, hike and bike trails will never be this pretty!
