If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind property in the serene and highly sought-after Gentle Creek Country Club and Golf Community in Prosper, then this oasis is for you. Situated on a four-acre-lot with plenty of trees and green space, this contemporary French-influenced custom home sports a secluded greenbelt with a babbling creek, well-appointed interiors, and panoramic views that go on for miles.
It’s outfitted with six fireplaces, elegant French and Italian imports, a spectacular covered patio, plus an indoor pool, greenhouse, and spa natatorium! Yes, this Prosper gem was built for entertaining and is custom-fitted for the person who wants it all.
Aside from its undeniable elegance and high design, the other bonus is that you’ll be living in Prosper, Texas, known as “A Place Where Everyone Matters.” The town originally sprouted up around the Saint Louis and San Francisco Railroad, and then more recently, blossomed along the tollway extension, U.S. Highway 380, and Preston Road.
Prosper is affluent and suburban, shared by both Collin and Denton counties. It was named among D Magazine’s 2010 Best Suburbs List and continues to rank as the Fifth Best Suburb in the Dallas Metropolitan Area – no easy feat!
Prosper High School cost the town $113.5 million to construct, and spans roughly 590,000-square-feet, complete with a medical tech lab, a restaurant-worthy kitchen, a greenhouse, a broadcast studio, and an indoor football practice facility. If that’s not enough to get you excited about raising a family in Prosper, it also feels right out of a Hallmark movie, especially during the holidays.
The town’s annual Christmas Festival and Fourth of July events are not to be missed! Each May, the Prosper Founders Fest celebrates local history, people, and the arts – an event that combines the Prosper Fire Department’s IBCA-sanctioned Barbecue Cookoff, a 5K race, art show, music festival, and Sunday Family Fellowship.
Clearly, Prosper knows a thing or two about bringing people together.
HISTORY OF HOME
Built in 2002, this remarkable one-owner Prosper estate is like new, offering five bedrooms, four full and one half-bathrooms, and not one, but two generous master suites! Along with countless amenities and a modern mix of interior design, it’s a place where you walk in and immediately have to pick your jaw up off the floor.
The current owner – an interior designer and dealer in antiques, mid-century modern furniture, custom jewelry, and accessories in the Dallas Design District – built and designed the home herself.
Her passion and flair for design is on full display, from the magnificent French-imported front door, to the show-stopping Marzari Italian tile throughout the first floor. Her Midas touch becomes a dream for any buyer who’s looking for a property that offers a contemporary French influence with an updated feel.
We cannot get over the unique combination of mid-century modern design meets antique traditional. The result? Nothing short of extraordinary.
Descend upon 1600 Winding Creek and you’ll discover a lushly landscaped lawn and grand entry welcoming you inside the 7,897-square-foot home with plenty of first-floor living! The gorgeous updated kitchen opens into the family room and has a convenient butler’s pantry and 26 x 12 utility room. Fully-equipped, it’s perfect for memorable dinner parties or social events with ample custom cabinets, gorgeous slab granite counters, and double ovens, a built-in refrigerator, ice maker, and warming bin. Everything you need to prepare delicious family meals in style!
Effortlessly flowing off the first floor is outdoor living at its finest. Covered porches, manicured gardens, a greenhouse, and an expansive covered patio with an in-ground heated indoor pool beckon lazy afternoons and evenings spent enjoying the outdoors. Layers of glass filter in natural light as you lounge poolside or take a dip in temperature-controlled waters. Attached to the pool area sits a spa and cabana – an inviting place to unwind after a long day.
Other outdoor amenities include landscape lighting, a sprinkler system, and intimate spaces to dine alfresco or take a relaxing stroll among the grounds.
SECOND FLOOR COMFORT
Back inside, the five bedrooms upstairs all showcase cathedral ceilings and/or dormers with sweeping views of the property. Crown molding, towering columns, and reclaimed sliding barn doors make each bedroom unique, ranging from elegant to cozy, with a touch of warm hues for napping, snoozing or reading a good book.
And what’s happening behind the scenes is equally impressive. The home’s mechanical features include four new HVAC, a new roof, two tankless water heaters, extra insulation for energy efficiency, four garages for the avid car collector, and a stately circle drive.
This is truly a home for entertaining – this Prosper beauty has it all!
