If the Garage Looks This Good, You Know the Rest of the House Is Great

You know a house is outstanding when even the garage is worth showing in this article. That’s the case for this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week, sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans — a striking modern at 4829 Mill Creek Place, listed by Janelle Alcantara of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International. But wait for the payoff as we walk through this beautiful modern home.

Located in the heart of the private school corridor, this five-bedroom, five and half-bath has 5,514 square feet on a third-acre, cul-de-sac lot.

“It has a larger backyard than most of the other houses in the area,” Alcantara says. “And it’s totally private! No neighboring houses can see into the yard.”

The outdoor living area is prepped for an outdoor kitchen.
The pool-sized yard has both an outdoor kitchen and pool bath.

This sleek home has all the smart little details that have become hallmarks of Alcantara’s spec home consulting company, Galaxy Modern.

She worked with builder Laguna Homes, a second-generation home builder with 30 years of experience in Collin and Denton counties, and now Dallas to add all those smart things — outlets with integrated USB plugs, night lights that have motion sensors, and more than abundant storage (for real people who have real big things).

The entry greets you with a glass staircase and adjacent wet bar.

The home is staged by Lisa Stapp of Staged by Stapp and it shows. The high-end furnishings and one-of-a-kind art gives the home personality and character — quite a feat for a home that’s never been lived in.

The owner’s suite has views of the private backyard.

One of the best features of the house is the guest suite. It’s separated from the rest of the home by the three-car garage I previously mentioned.

The suite has its own entry and room for a sitting area and kitchenette or desk. Of course the bathroom is sublime with a really large walk-in closet and a spacious bath with dual sinks and plenty of storage.

“If you want to treat your guests like royalty, there’s room to fence in a private yard for them,” Alcantara says.

And no, I didn’t forget. Here’s a look at that good-looking three-car garage:

“The garage floor is a work of art,” Alcantara says. “Any car will look like a luxury vehicle with the metallic silver and black high-gloss finish on the floor.”

Janelle Alcantara of Briggs Freeman has listed 4829 Mill Creek Place for $1.8 million.
