MODERN MEDITERRANEAN WITH OVER 5,000 SQFT, EXPANSIVE SPACES
Open house: Sunday, Jan. 8, 12-4 p.m.
Expansive spaces and contemporary style define the house at 4163 Brookport Dr., near Midway Road and Royal Lane in Meadowbrook Terrace. It sits on over half an acre and the house itself is 5,109 square feet. There are no interior load-bearing walls, as well as movable flex-line plumbing, so this house also defines “flexible floorplan.” It can be almost anything, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half bath, built in 2005.
The bright entryway is decorated with 1-million-year-old boulders from the red rock Arizona desert, and the dining room easily seats 12. The kitchen is roomy, with two pantries, a large center island, and stainless steel appliances, including double ovens. A huge master suite (21-by-21) has French doors leading to the backyard, and a bonus room off the master could easily be converted into a closet worthy of Imelda Marcos’ shoe collection. The master bath offers a jetted dub, dual vanities, and walk-in shower. The second and third bedrooms have a Jack-and-Jill layout, sharing a bathroom, and both are generously sized. The large backyard could easily accommodate a new swimming pool, pied-à-terre, or outdoor living oasis.

The family room, formal living, and dining rooms have an open floorplan, which makes it feel even bigger.
