This week’s Suburb Sunday sends us to Southlake for three selections of simply gorgeous homes. (I just couldn’t resist the lovely alliteration.) One is transitional, another is modern, and the third is a geodome you have to see to believe. Which do you prefer? (Pick the dome!)

2224 Lakeridge Front

Yes, that’s right. I said Grapevine. Truthfully, there are tons of fabulous properties out in this Tarrant County suburb. And with incredible schools, proximity to Lake Grapevine, and tons of beautiful views, it’s a shame we don’t feature this wonderful town more.

Today we’re checking out 2224 Lakeridge Drive, a gorgeous property from gorgeous Allie Beth Allman agent Dona Robinson. This home has a traditional feel with some great contemporary updates, including a stucco exterior, fresh paint, imported stone and hardwood floors, as well as a majestically treed lot, giving this wonderful and unique home impressive drive-up appeal. It’s fresh to the market and priced at $997,500.

2224 Lakeridge Den 2224 Lakeridge Living 2

With five bedrooms, five full and two half baths over 6,119 square feet, this home is spacious without being imposing. Sporting three living areas and tons of floor-to-ceiling windows, this home was built for entertaining crowds in a way that adds drama and grace. I love the color palette, too, which has subtle variations of neutrals including a beautiful modern-style fireplace in one of the more formal living areas. There’s also a home theater and sauna, as well as a full-fledged guest suite should you trouble yourself hosting relatives come next holiday season.

2224 Lakeridge Kitchen 2 2224 Lakeridge BreakfastThere’s plenty of rustic appeal, too, which you’ll find in the kitchen and breakfast areas, which sport exposed wood beams and beautiful metal arched chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The kitchen is immense and well-appointed, too. It has commercial-grade stainless steel appliances tucked inside custom cabinetry and topped with granite and marble. And thanks to the open kitchen floorplan, you can enjoy the view of the pool from the den, the breakfast area, or even from behind the stove.

2224 Lakeridge Master 2224 Lakeridge Study

The master bedroom is a true retreat with an adjacent study that has tons of built-in cabinetry for a work-at-home workaholic. This is just the kind of set-up Candy and I need when we are struck with some late-night inspiration and have to bang out a blog post before we lose that manic bit of creativity. The views are just stunning, too, and an inspiration in themselves.

2224 Lakeridge Master Bath

The master bath has just a huge jetted tub adjacent to an immense multi-head shower. Just really frickin’ huge, folks. I am a little put off by the mirrored surround above the tub. Just feels a little too “skeevy porn star” to me. Easily replaced, and it’d look great with some tile or even some frosted glass.

2224 Lakeridge Backyard and view

Outside you’ll find a huge pool with diving board and a built-in spa, and of course, tons of views and a very private-feeling lot. If you’re wanting to get away from the city but not wanting to sacrifice on luxury, this could be the home for you and your family.
