Bent Tree contemporary

I want this house. I know all we writers at CandysDirt.com could say that a few times a week, but this home at 5414 Harbor Town Drive in Bent Tree is so crush-worthy that I’m fighting the urge to stop writing and start moving.  A classic contemporary nestled on a half-acre lot, this 4,921-square-foot home at the Bent Tree Country Club 13th tee box overlooks rolling terrain, a creek, and a waterfall. This Harbor Town home is five bedrooms and five baths for $795,000.

Wood inlay walls and flooring, two-story ceilings, and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace wow you as you walk in and survey the large step-down living room. Hidden away is a giant 160 x 90-inch ceiling to floor movie screen with state of the art theater projector. (more…)
