This house is getting lots of LOVE on social media so it is my pleasure to give you guys an official tour via the blog! Because we truly got to be a part of every room in the house, we have A LOT to show you. We’ll be revealing it in 3 parts, the exterior and the interior parts I & II. First up is the exterior!
Let me start by saying that this house was a huge collaboration and only turned out as fabulous as it did because so many talented people came together. The plan design was done by Wyrick Residential Design, it was built by Blakecraft Homes, the landscape and pool design was done by Smelek Design, and the beautiful photos you’re about to enjoy were captured by Grant Duckworth Photography. Duckworth Interiors provided the construction selections as well as the turn-key interior.
The homeowners and their 3 children actually lived in this neighborhood and played this golf course for many years. This hole on the golf course was always their favorite, so when they got the opportunity to purchase this lot, they jumped on it. This lot came with a very tired and out dated home that got demolished. The first time we visited the property, it was an empty lot. Today this home is a dream realized.
You’ll notice a nice mix of exterior materials… painted brick, stucco, and shake siding. You notice shingles and metal for the roofing. Bronze windows and front door provide a beautiful contrast to the white brick and stucco. The cedar accents and gas lanterns add so much warmth.
This back yard was really built around this incredible view. Beyond the pool, there’s a creek and beyond that the immaculate golf course. One gets the feeling that they are visiting a private resort rather than an individual’s home.
One element to the pool design that I really love were the steps going across the pool. Smelek Design was so clever to add these “lily pads”.
There’s plenty of room for entertaining and dining outside on this covered patio!
I hope you enjoyed our tour of the exterior! Leave us a note and let us know what you think! Please subscribe so you won’t miss out when we reveal the rest of this project!
