Ordinarily, my preferences run a little more modern, but there is some undeniable allure in this custom take on French rustic. It’s truly lovely. I like to think this is exactly the sort of home Belle would build after she took half of the Beast’s assets and relocated for the great schools. A little rustic, a little French, a whole lot of gorgeous.

“They really did an impeccable job,” said listing agent Haley Wagstaff. “It’s just stunning.”

Situated on an acre of land, 5601 Twin Cities Lane offers an impressive drive up. With 6,235 square feet all on one level, the house seems to go on forever. Built by Lewis and Earley Custom Homes in 2015, with interior design services provided by Andrea Ana Tracey with Drake and Frye Home and Lea Newsom of Lea Newsom Design, the finish-out is simply stunning.

And with its location, the home could easily appeal to a younger family as well as an older couple. The TPC Craig Ranch Golf course and club and Cooper Fitness Center are nearby, offering a little something for everyone, right within reach.

Once inside, you’d be hard pressed not to fall prey to this home’s charms. Awash in tranquil, warm grays and creams, the interior is dreamy and serene. The warmth of the wood floors and ceiling beams play a beautiful contrast to the cool stone and marble used throughout the house.

“All the finish-out is very high end,” said Wagstaff. “It has beautiful color scheme, very clean lines, and at the same time, so much functionality.”

It is evident that a lot of thought went into the function of this home. A catering kitchen just behind the main kitchen features a second sink and a dishwasher providing a practical answer to hosting, as well as to everyday kitchen chaos.

Nothing says, relish your childhood like a window seat. For that reason alone, this home is a daydreamer’s delight. Grab a good book and curl up in a pool of the home’s abundant natural light and zone out on one of its many built-ins.

Listed at $2.25 million, there’s no end to the thoughtful, custom details in this five-bedroom stunner. The homework center between the children’s rooms are simultaneously practical and charming. The two sets of custom barn doors, which lead to the multi-function media room, were custom made by Dixon and Dad in Alabama and lend the perfect rustic touch.
