Peaceful Living With The Sound of Water in This Mira Vista Home

Peaceful isn't something you hear about in homes much these days

What is it about water that is so peaceful and relaxing?  We go to the beach to hear the waves, the lake to hear the lapping of the water, and if you’ve ever watched a front-loading washing machine go through a cycle, it’s quite mesmerizing.

People spend tons of money to have fountains installed in their gardens and there are even desktop gizmos that you plug in and hear the trickle of water while different colored lights shine.

Water is relaxing and peaceful and very comforting.  If you like the peaceful sound of water flowing, then you’ll love this home in the gated golfing community of Mira Vista Country Club.

No diving please

The fountain and splash pool is the focal feature of the interior courtyard at 6712 Lahontan Drive

Built by local Fort Worth builder David Lewis in 2011, this French-inspired home of 3,799 square feet has two water features that give the home a relaxing and calming feel.

New Orleans Feel

As you wind through this home you will notice there is a New Orleans feel to it.  You know when you’re walking around the French Quarter and you go through a door and a corridor until you come upon a beautiful interior courtyard — that’s the feel of 6712 Lahontan Drive.

If you’re looking for that “open concept”  home — this is not the home for you, and that’s okay.  This home has been thoughtfully planned and designed to flow well around the interior courtyard and fountain.

Hand scraped hardwoods and rough hewn beams adorn the living room – which looks onto the interior courtyard

Surrounding the courtyard is a high brick fence with ivy and character.  Large windows allow light to pour into the home from the landscaped patio, fountain, and outdoor kitchen.

Almost like a secret passage from motor court to home with another water feature

Fantastic Finishes

Another water feature, through an outdoor corridor, leads to the three-car garage and motor court.  I just happened to stumble upon this area – it was so relaxing with the splashing of the water in the fountain and private garden.

The gourmet kitchen also looks onto the interior courtyard and of course, has amazing finishes

6712 Lahontan Drive has two bedrooms downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs.  Also found upstairs is a private media room perfect for any kind of binge-watching.

The master bathroom comes with all the fine fix’ins you’d expect – plus a room in front of the large closet to prepare

This French-inspired Mira Vista home at 6712 Lahontan Dr. is listed for $999,000 by Michelle Perry of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty in Fort Worth.  Take time to relax and enjoy this peaceful home.
