Don’t let the quaint exterior of this Frisco home fool you into thinking this is a small house. This DR Horton-built home at 7920 Southmark Drive is long and narrow, but it’s a huge two-story with four bedrooms and three full baths coming in at 2,635 square feet. It’d be a perfect home for a family with kids, perfectly situated at Preston and Rolater in Frisco, the city most recently named the best city in Texas for families.
As you walk into this home, to the right you’ll find a roomy formal dining room with high ceilings that make it feel bright and open. Wide double doors from the dining room lead into the large kitchen, which has plentiful cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The floor plan is great for entertaining since the kitchen has sight lines to the seated bar, breakfast nook, and living room.
The living room has built-in cabinets, an open countertop for a mini-bar if you fancy, and flowing access to the backyard patio. Earthy-hued, natural stone Travertine tiles line the living room, fireplace and the rest of the house. You might throw down a rug or two for cold mornings. Just saying.
The master bedroom, located downstairs, is a spacious retreat that’s large enough for a cozy sitting area in the corner. The master bath features a separate tub and mosaic-tiled shower, as well as his-and-hers vanities full of under-sink storage. The walk-in closet is outfitted with custom built-in shelves and shoe storage.
Down the hall from the living room, there is a roomy second bedroom, which is shown below as a study. It has a full bathroom with a mosaic-tiled shower bath and a unique rectangular vessel sink.
Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, which are adorably decorated as a modern kid camping space with custom paint and a grassy backyard fort. The two bedrooms share a beautiful bathroom, which features a mosaic-tiled shower bath and vessel sink similar to the downstairs bath.
If the cute kids’ rooms weren’t enough, the second floor has a Texas-sized playroom with high ceilings, ceiling fan, and wall of built-in cabinets. And a built-in wine cooler in case of Mom emergency (a Mom-mergency? We’ll workshop that).
Finally there’s the backyard, with a partially-covered, step-down patio. The built-in outdoor grill makes this the perfect backyard for grill enthusiasts. Plus, the small yard, which is long and narrow like the rest of the house, is easy to maintain with a built-in sprinkler system.
The $600 mandatory annual homeowners association fees pay for access to the large community pool, pool bathroom, and playground, which are within walking distance of home. This house is in the attendance area of Bright Elementary School, Staley Middle School, and Frisco High.
