Welcome to 928 Layfair Place! An other worldly charm is exuded from this traditionally styled two story home with an expansive front porch that overlooks this 1 acre park like lot shaded by sprawling oaks and towering pines. A 3 car detached garage rests behind the home.
Step in through the wood front door flanked by wood panels on the sides that would make it possible to add double front doors to the foyer. The staircase is straight ahead and a wide entrance on the left leads into this combined formal living & dining room.
Looking from the foyer, the formal living and dining room offer neutral paint, a trio of double paned low e windows, plush carpet underfoot, built-in shelving along one wall, and convenient direct access to the kitchen from the dining room.
Straight ahead from the foyer, you'll find the heart of this home. A grand family room with tons of character from wood paneled walls also features a soaring two story ceiling that extends upward to the second floor catwalk.
An alternate view of the family room highlights the charming brick facade and hearth of this wood burning fireplace, flanked by a pair of undivided double paned windows that overlook the picturesque backyard acreage and sparkling swimming pool.
Neatly tucked into a corner between the family room and kitchen, this casual breakfast space boasts brick laid ceramic tile floors, wood paneled walls, a window with backyard views, and a nearby half bathroom and utility room near the rear entrance of the home.
Step into the kitchen and you'll find a functional space with solid wood cabinetry, durable laminate counters, a garden window above the sink, and white appliances including a built-in microwave, dishwasher, and smooth glass cooktop with electric oven.
Escape to the privacy of the first floor master retreat, tucked into an alcove just off of the family room, where you'll find a ceiling fan with ornate ceiling medallion, buttery neutral paint, plush carpet, and windows that overlook the front and side yards of the home.
The master bathroom showcases a true dressing space with seated vanity, cultured marble countertops, a basin sink, brushed nickel faucet, sconce lighting, his & hers bi-fold door walk-in closets, and a stand alone shower with cultured marble surround.
Head up the staircase from the foyer to the second floor landing and catwalk that highlight the magnificent wall of windows below. As you gaze out on the sweeping panoramic view of the property, you'll feel like you're a million miles from the hustle and bustle of life.
The first of three freshly painted secondary bedrooms located upstairs in this home features a polished brass and wood lighted ceiling fan, plush carpet, a roomy closet, and a side facing window shaded by 2 inch blinds.
All of the secondary bedrooms in this home are generously sized, with this one measuring an impressive 14'x14', and offering an all white lighted ceiling fan, fresh neutral paint, plush carpet, and a pair of windows shaded by blinds.
The fourth and final bedroom in the home features a globe light, fresh neutral paint contrasted by crisp, white chair rail molding, plush carpet underfoot, a roomy closet, and a pair of energy efficient double paned windows overlooking the yard.
The second floor bathroom was refreshed in 2012 to include granite countertops with an undermount basin sink, oil rubbed bronze faucet, raised panel wood cabinetry, tile floors, a mirrored medicine cabinet, and a combination bathtub and shower.
Dive on in to this extra large in ground swimming pool with concrete decking and tile coping. The pool was last replastered in 2007 and the Polaris pool cleaner was rebuilt and a new pump installed in 2009. So much privacy on this large lot!
The view from the deep end of the pool with diving board highlights the shaded wood deck with built in bench along the right side, as well as the enclosed shed for pool equipment and the rear bay door to the 3 1/2 car garage with workshop.
There's plenty of space beneath this covered back patio to add several seating arrangements to enjoy the cool breeze and watch the littles splash in the pool. It also allows a protected passage from the 3 1/2 car garage and workshop right into the house.
An acre lot with this kind of beauty is a rare find in Friendswood! Don't miss the bricked sitting area beneath the oaks about halfway out in the backyard, of the 3rd bay of the garage with rear access. A double gate on the side would allow storage of a boat or RV as well.
Along the far reaches of the property line, you'll find a large barn style storage shed for lawn equipment, a pair of raised vegetable garden beds with irrigation system, and a row of mature privacy hedges planted along the chain link fence.
This image is a favorite of the current homeowners, highlighting the true beauty of this masterfully landscaped backyard during it's full spring bloom. Pops of color collide with lush green foliage and the rustling of the leaves in the sprawling oak trees.
Charming two story home with an expansive front porch and sparkling pool, situated on over an acre of private park-like property dotted with sprawling oaks, towering pines, and colorful flower beds.
