Another Riverhill stunner that gets it right, this one at 4020 Bent Elm is elegant without being bombastic. Why have we come to expect that from new construction? This lovely brick home, built in 2015 clocks in at a manageable 3,748 square feet.
In fact the entry is best described modest and restrained. Still, quality is immediately evident. Custom scraped hardwoods, fine doors and custom millwork give the house a classic, custom look. To the right, behind French doors, is a charming study with Williamsburg Blue paneled walls and a beamed ceiling.
The large kitchen is the nucleus around which the floor plan revolves, overlooking both the living and dining areas, with only the oversized island as a divider.
Countertops are marble. Appliances including the six-burner gas cooktop are by JenAir. Forceful beams march down the kitchen ceiling into the living area to the fireplace, one of two.
The house has four bedrooms, each with a bath. Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor including the master suite at back and another bedroom being used now as a nursery.
Upstairs, the landing opens onto an informal, second living area. It shares the floor with the remaining two bedrooms and baths.
The outdoor living area can be accessed from the dining room. Other extras include a mudroom and laundry room with custom built-in cabinets. In front is one of the large green spaces, maintained by the association, for which Riverhills is known. Opportunities to own here are on the rare side. An open house, this Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. will give you a chance to experience what is special about Riverhills.
Co-listing agents Emma Gardner and Ashley Mooring of Briggs Freeman Sothebys Fort Worth have priced 4020 Bent Elm Lane at $949,000.
