This 4- or 5-bedroom home, architecturally designed and customized for this unique ravine lot of almost 4 acres, offers a private retreat. Yet the location provides quick access to the conveniences of a modern life. Never seen on the market before, this custom home is a rare find indeed. It’s one of the largest lots in all of the Rolling Oaks subdivision (per seller).
Understated with elegant simplicity, this spacious one-story custom home will delight! The porte cachere and the 3-car garage (far left) provide plenty of protection from the Texas sun. It has never flooded (per seller).
Notice how the architectural design of this one-story home embraces the towering trees, taking advantage of the natural habitat. In a semi-circle design, the home’s south wing is on the far right side, the front entrance situated in the middle with roofed porte-cochere, and the 3-car garage on the left-hand side. This macro view hints of the treat that is in store for you.
As you approach on the circular driveway, you first notice the pond designed with peace and serenity in mind.
Before venturing inside, meander the front grounds just a bit to explore it: two ponds—one with a bubbling fountain and the other with a waterfall, majestic trees and lush vegetation, extensive lawn, a circular drive, porte-cochere, 3-car garage, breezeway, the beginnings of the woods (south end) and more! And that’s just an appetizer!
Standing at the front door and looking back on the pond speckled with water lilies, notice the waterfall as well as the grove of trees, and manicured hedge.
Continuing your stroll around the second pond, you might sit a while, bring a fishing pole, seek out the turtles, or watch a western sky.
Once inside, the façade’s demurred simplicity fades as the wide open space of the grand living space greets you. Breathtaking living space boasts a soaring ceiling adorned by a bank of oversized windows and punctuated by the gleaming slate floors, which provide a warm earth-tone palate.
The fireplace, ensconced in stone and graced by built-ins, provides a cozy focal point with abundant light pouring in from the oversized windows and doors. The door (right side of photo) leads to the south wing and 3 of the 4 bedrooms. [SEE THE LINK TO A VIRTUAL TOUR TO “WALK” THE HOME.]
Another view—to fully appreciate the enormity of this space. Notice the front double doors (constructed with steel-clad casings) at center and the French doors which open to the study.
Although the breath-taking wall of windows and the magical backyard capture your attention, don’t overlook the open flow to a masterful kitchen with all the conveniences you would imagine.
This 11’ island with accent granite provides form and function. Recessed lighting, cabinets with glass display, slate floors, and crown molding provide the polish of this elegant kitchen. The pantry (14’ x 11’….yes, it’s the size of a room!) behind the swinging door at right will wow you! In addition to the size, it touts 10’ ceilings, extensive shelving, and access to a secured “safe room” besides. You simply must view this ranch-style home to uncover all its treasures.
Another view of the kitchen highlighting the open floorplan of this custom home built by commercial builder, Shannon Boatman. Note Whirlpool double oven (2018) and Whirlpool dishwasher (2018). The open doorway to the left of the integrated refrigerator is the wet bar and access to another storage closet. (Not seen in the foreground of this photo is the built-in desk.)
A perfect home for entertaining! This wet bar opens to the great living and also features a granite countertop, built-in cabinetry, glass shelves and access to a sizeable storage room.
Sip your coffee staring through the custom windows (vinyl over steel) to soak in the beauty of towering mature oaks and the wooded ravine beyond. This ceiling fan is just one of the 13 found in the home. Head down this hall past the built-in desk (left), past the powder room, past the utility, past the storage room to explore yet one more breath-taking treat: the master suite.
Powder room with pedestal sink, hand-painted faux paint finish (~2010).
The wide hallway leads from the breakfast nook to the master suite (behind the double doors). The left door leads you to the breezeway and garage. Behind the middle door is yet another storage room. Please note that all interior doors are 8 feet, solid wood.
Surprise! Part of the remarkable master suite, this expansive sitting room (19’ x 20’) with a stunning 11’ ceiling provides a striking feeling of elegance and respite. The wood-burning fireplace (double-sided) beckons you. [all measurements approximate]
Another view of the sitting room. In designing this one-story home, the architect invites the outdoors in. The floor-to-ceiling windows, complete with transom accents above and below, are tinted. The lower transoms are casement. The extensive shelving and cabinets provide function and enhance the relaxing atmosphere.
Behind the sitting room sits the traditional master bedroom, complete with built-in drawers and counter space, the fireplace and just the right blend of openness and privacy with tinted windows in strategic positioning.
Another view of the master bedroom, highlighting the double fireplace (wood-burning) with marble tile trim and high ceilings.
Just wow! Photos don’t do this master closet justice.
The wow factor continues, with a master bath more spacious than many bedrooms. Other special features include his / her vanities, sunken soaking tub enhanced with door-sized window, Romanesque plumbing fixtures, walk-in shower, upper transom windows, separate water closet, linen closet, marble floors, and framed wide mirrors. (2nd similar mirror on right-hand side not shown.)
Even the utility room delights! No detail is overlooked. The added conveniences include size, soaking sink, cabinetry, counter space, slate tile flooring, high ceilings, window and convenience to the backdoor.
Heading toward the south wing, you will find through French doors the study which faces the front of the home and looks over the lily pond through triple windows. Note the windows boast high-end honeycombed blinds with bottoms-up / top-down configuration, which is true throughout most of the home. This room could be easily converted into a 5th bedroom.
This bright bathroom not only services the first of 3 secondary bedrooms, but also can be accessed from the hallway. The angles reflect the architect’s design to wrap the home around the great outdoors.
Bedroom #2. All the secondary bedrooms boast a stunning window / door combination designed to draw you toward the ravined landscape. The bedrooms have high ceilings, recessed lights, ceiling fans, molding and ample room sizes as well as walk-in closets.
This connecting bathroom services bedroom #3 and #4.
Currently used as an exercise room, bedroom #4 which is situated at the southern end promotes privacy. Enjoy your workout gazing through the wall of windows.
Wow! Adventures to be had! Come explore what’s before you in the back acreage.
In the comfort of the fans’ cool breeze, enjoy this back porch and take advantage of the extended roof coverage and views. This well-maintained home boasts a 3-foot overhang soffit with 360 degree coverage.
This small accent pond can be enjoyed from the back porch. Can’t you just imagine a zen-like trance happening? In the background, notice the inviting deck, the wooded ravine, the master bedroom windows encircled with ivy, and the grassy lawn beyond.
Built in 2011, this multi-level deck of almost 1500 square feet provides just what’s needed to bring friends and loved ones together. Imagine the good times here!
What architectural design! Windows! Windows! Windows!
Extensive decking (2011) across many levels
This wooded ravine is the perfect place for chase and hide-and-seek! Nestled in these acres is a dry creek spanned by four bridges, many bird sanctuaries, 2 storage out-buildings, a compost, rose garden, and more. Over 20 water faucets dispersed through the acreage make for convenient watering from your own well (no water bills!) and the grassy lawns sport an automatic sprinkler system. Why don't you come explore it?
Lest you be afraid that the ravine lot may not provide a grassy lawn—at 4 Meadow Way Circle you can have it all.
This birds’ eye view showcases the enormity of the property, the perfect mix of woods with pond and lawn, and the distinct feel of rural living yet part of a desirable subdivision.
