Please join us for our multi-home Staff Meeting open house event up in Las Colinas on March 9 at The Enclave. For those just tuning in, this is the first time we’ve had a simultaneous, triple open house tour of over $7 million in real estate. In case you missed homes one and two you can click here and here. In addition to viewing these properties, we’ll also meet and listen to the general manager of the Four Seasons golf club who will discuss what it’s like living on a golf course in Four Seasons-land (wonderful, I’d expect … it’s the Four Seasons).
Our final property is 4782 Byron Circle and it’s the perfect bookend being the next-door neighbor of our first home (Map). All three properties are listed with Leigh Ann Barrick, top producing broker/associate with Keller Williams. This home, on a third of an acre, is 5,123 square feet and contains four bedrooms with five full and one half bathroom. Built in 2001, it’s listed for $2.395 million. Like its neighbor at 4786 Byron Circle, this home has 17th (party) hole views of the Four Seasons TPC gold course where the Byron Nelson tournament is held each May.
We’re thrilled to host you and your closest real estate-obsessed friends, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t thank the evening’s co-sponsor, John Kelly, branch manager with Guaranteed Rate. He’s a genius with mortgages and we couldn’t be happier to have him aboard!
Guests arrive through a double front door with decorative beveled glass and arched transom. Seen in the distance, the kitchen hints at the open concept layout this home offers. Stone floors compliment the Mediterranean design of the home. Although, I’d have to remember slippers in the winter for my midnight snacks.
Of course what you should see in a view property is the view. And from the moment you enter, there it is crooking its “come here” finger beckoning you to look out the double-story windows. As a side note, I like the staircase. It’s simpler and less “look at me.”
The living room adds the perfect drama for a party. One can imagine the holiday decorations and stupendously tall tree this home would accommodate. Notice the stone floors laid at a 45-degree angle to add interest and avoid the tedium of 90-degree stone tile flooring.
At the other end of the open concept room is the large kitchen. A triple row of preparation space has enough elbow room for the most complicated dinners or most likely a buffet space for graving guests who can’t keep out of the kitchen (guilty) no matter what else is going on elsewhere in the home. I especially like the island with plenty of pot drawers.
This kitchen also has two sinks, a butler’s pantry (viewed in the distance), jumbo fridge, and lots of heat … large cooktop, double ovens, microwave, a warming drawer and pizza oven (spoilers). The glass-fronted cabinets add visual interest as do the clerestory windows. This is a well-lit kitchen … above and under cabinet lighting … recessed ceiling lights, a wall of windows behind the photographer and those clerestories. A cook will have no problem reading a recipe book in here.
The master bedroom’s wood floors add warmth to the space while the windows bring in plenty of light and offer access to a terrace. Being that I need more and more beauty sleep as the years wear on, I might add some blackout blinds.
Ya know what? I really like this bathroom. The wood plays off the stone mosaic floor giving it an old-world touch without being overpowering or kitschy. The chest of drawers is perfectly placed to add décor while covering a showerer’s naughty bits … and a double shower means double naughty bits. The only thing I’m not sure about is the ceiling fan … doesn’t that make things chilly when you’re wet? (You can tell it’s winter, I seem to be overly concerned with getting cold)
Let’s head outside to get warm …
The rear of the home is what it’s all about … smack-dab on the golf course. Each room has an outdoor space to sink into the views or cheer on the players (hushed cheering, of course … unless there’s a Rodney Dangerfield-type golfer present.
Closer to the home I can finally show you the custom pizza oven (I’d love one of these). If there are any pizza lovers or bread bakers reading this, you know. The kinds of fresh bread that would come out of this oven would be adults-only … eaten warm with butter and perhaps garlic butter. I do love a warm carbs.
After eating all those delicious carbs, I’d need to start swimming a lot of laps. Although with the infinity edge and views, it would be difficult to concentrate … especially with a glass of wine in my hand.
But there’s more than just a pool. There’s enough water to charge admission. Hot tub and babbling brook along with the golf course’s pond in the distance all add up to some relaxing summer evenings after the golfers have gone and it feels like you’re living in a park … your own private park.
As I wrote in the beginning of this series, these homes are not built for single people. But if you’re looking for a family home … or future family home …it’s worth exploring what The Enclave in Las Colinas has to offer. The Four Seasons? That’s just icing on an already sweet cake.
Remember: High-rises, HOAs and renovation are my beat. But I also appreciate modern and historical architecture balanced against the YIMBY movement.
