Talk about taking a test drive in a home, I cannot think of a more beautiful setting for sweating than 4920 Mangold Circle. The home is empty, which actually gives you a chance to appreciate the clean, but definitive, architecture. So for once, we will not complain about no furnishings. Shh!
I told you about the location off Strait Lane, north of Royal, the “quieter” part of Strait Lane. But go inside to see how architect William Briggs blended Leuders Limestone on the interiors. Bringing natural stone into the home is one of the hottest new trends I have seen (huge on the West Coast) and no one seems to be talking about it yet. Of course, builders have always brought brick and stone into the home, but the smooth-as-a-baby’s butt Leuders on foyer and study walls just melts my heart.
And if you want to totally crumble, take a look at that vessel bath tub and the stone wall behind it in the master bath. Holy moly, buy me this house (this TUB!) and you can have ANYTHING!
