Every day will be a holiday with the gorgeous views afforded from this spectacular rustic horse ranch on 8 acres! This home was completely stripped to the studs, remodeled and enlarged in 2008. All HVAC, hardware, lighting and other features were updated to modern standards. It just underwent another extensive update in 2015-2016 with all new flooring, plantation shutters, complete interior repainting, new front entry and much, much more!
Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac on a quiet street in Coppell, the complete stone exterior and seamed metal roof give a distinctive “Texas Hill Country” feel, although you are right in the heart of Dallas-Ft. Worth and a mere 10 minutes from DFW International Airport.
Guests arrive through a circular driveway with covered parking in front. The entry is secured by an electronic keypad that alerts the owners, wherever they may be, upon anyone entering or exiting the home. Upon entering the home, a wall of windows provides a dramatic view of the entire acreage, pond and pool. A formal dining area is separated from a step-down living room, with unique metal art surrounding a wood-burning fireplace. Soft uplighting in the trayed ceiling and the natural light from the wall of windows give this area a bright and spacious ambiance. Hardwoods and travertine floors also add to the appeal of the transition areas in this portion of the home.
The south wing beyond the family room houses a custom study with a view of the front lawn and trees, setting the tone for peaceful, creative work or study. Immediately adjacent to the study is a step-down entrance into the owner’s retreat. The oversized bedroom features a see-through fireplace, sitting area and a spectacular view to the pool, outdoor living and back portion of this property. The master bath creates a spa-like environment with stainless steel and granite counters, dual sinks, dual shower, built-in linen cabinets, custom stone accented walls and a spacious master closet with custom built-in cabinets and shelves.
The heart of this home is the commercial-grade island kitchen. Brazilian blue Bahia granite adorns the large, curved breakfast bar, among other counter space, which is tastefully blended with stainless steel counters, doors and appliances. A 5-burner Wolf™ gas cooktop and custom, commercial-grade vent hood, two Dacor™ dishwashers, oversized Sub-Zero™ refrigerator/freezer, built-in microwave, Miele™ expresso machine, icemaker, wine cooler and warming drawer are among the many features of this kitchen. An exceptionally large walk-in pantry has more than enough extra storage for even the most ardent chef.
Through the back of the kitchen is a utility room with an abundance of cabinet space, stainless steel counters, room for full-size washer & dryer, utility sink and built-in stainless steel folding shelf. Immediately adjacent is a combination mud & craft room that leads into a 6-car garage with both front & back entrances, plus an L-shaped workbench, complete with a multitude of cabinets for more than ample storage for the handyman in the family.
Open to the kitchen and surrounding a gas log stone fireplace is a casual living area that borders the back center of the home with dramatic views of the entire rear of the property. This spacious room measures 31’ x 17’ and features a TV wall mount area above the fireplace, surround system wiring and a full bath, which can easily be accessed from the pool area.
Along the right portion of the downstairs is a private entrance into a guest wing housing two bedrooms, both with large walk-in closets, and connected by an updated Jack & Jill bath. Immediately outside the hallway and adjacent to the front entry is a half-bath for guests.
Upstairs is a dream design for kids or guests to have their own space. Three exceptionally large bedrooms with vaulted ceilings have their own private bath and large walk-in closets. There is a large, two-station study area with built-in drawers and bookshelves. A small alcove with a window overlooking the back of the property is perfect for a chair and quiet reading area. An adjacent wall of bookshelves and cabinets provide an area to store books, trophies and other memorabilia.
The upstairs bedrooms and study area surround a massive common area that can flex in many ways. This area can be combined into one super-large playroom or divided into 2 or 3 sections to use as a media, game, music or other recreational area.
3 new rooms were created from unused attic space in 2016 by the current owners. One room measures 17’ x 17’ and can flex as an exercise room, media room or playroom for kids. The two other rooms measure 11’ x 10’ and 10’ x 7’ and have a variety of options for use by the new owners-to-be.
Outside is a massive patio, diving pool, and covered outdoor living area with wood-burning fireplace. A 4-stall barn was just built in 2012 and the exterior stone and metal roof match the main residence. A circulating water system is designed to keep the horses watered and a large tack room holds plenty of storage for saddles, bridles and other riding accessories. Two lofts, along with an area on the main floor provide storage for hay, feed and other accessories.
The back 6.5 acres has been zoned agricultural and the total taxes for this land in 2016 was a mere $17.68! A private pond, fenced riding area and covered tractor storage area are just a few of the highlights in this heavily-treed creek lot, which also backs up to another greenbelt. The current owners planted 15 fruit trees in back, including apple, almond, olive, avocado, peach, plum, fig, nectarine and pear. This property has also been designated as a bird sanctuary with a countless variety of birds visiting in the back acreage.
Located in renowned Coppell ISD and just a stone’s throw from Coppell High School, this property also provides convenient access to the Las Colinas business district, downtown Dallas or Ft. Worth, and a plethora of dining and shopping choices. Don’t miss this opportunity to own one of the most unique properties in all the Metroplex!
