Darren Woodson recently picked up a stunning new home built by The Hill Group with clean lines and walls of glass dubbed an “architecturally detailed farmhouse”. The home is located on Boca Raton west of Preston, Boca being one of my favorite silly street names: Mouth of the Rat! Silly, but not the worst name. The worst street name I have ever heard is my own son’s address in California: Alameda de las Pulgas or Street of the fleas! My God, we had fleas once and it was not pretty. Why anyone would think fleas are a suitable name for a street, which is actually a pretty street on the Peninsula.
I digress, sorry. So on June 15 the Woodson’s picked up this beauty, paid about $1.8 for complete new construction. The walls of glass have views of the .38 acre’s mature trees and large green backyard.
Digression again: I think .34 to .40 is the perfect size for a yard. Personally, .20 gets a little claustrophobic just for me. Would be interested in hearing what y’all think the perfect lot size is. This home is 100 feet wide by 167 feet deep, PERFECT!
The home is 5863 square feet with formals, five bedrooms and four full plus one half bath. The kitchen is loaded with the latest gourmet goodies, tip top appliances and a farmhouse sink — oh, that’s why they are calling it a “farmhouse”. Now I get it. Check out the European frameless cabinets & floating staircase up. And check out the master suite — plenty of room for two, of course, but you could almost have the entire Dallas Cowboys lineup in that Master shower! Plus I love how the sinks and even a built-in dresser deal have elevated bottoms so you dust underneath, very smart thinking!
Now for the fun part: looks like Jan Richey of Keller Williams Frisco Stars rode herd on this sale and counts the Woodson’s as clients. Di Brown at Ebby Halliday was the listing agent. Beth they had a BLAST wth the Woodsons!
