Stan Barron Properties
is a licensed Texas real estate broker
to Falconhead. The single story floorplan (3,524 sq. ft. per
tax records) has four bedrooms, three baths, an office, and
a kitchen that chefs and wine enthusiasts will rate with
high marks. There is even an extra garage for that little
red sports car you have always dreamed of owning. The home
is in the gated section of Falcon Head called The Heights.
Only sixty homes are in this section, and they have lots
that are 100-fee wide. The other Falcon Head homes are on
And if there is a practical side of
your personality that must be satisfied before making a
financial decision, consider this: recent asking prices in
the area have averaged about $860,000, and the $729,000
price here is comfortably below that. There is a
little-known tax benefit for those living in Falcon
Head--none of which applies if you live in the surrounding
neighborhoods like Lakeway or Steiner Ranch. Over a five
year period the savings would be approximately $25,000 (No
MUD. Call for details).
The secret to curb appeal
Just look at photograph number two above. Beautiful
landscaping leads your eye to the impressive textures and
surfaces cast by the expensive materials used here. For
starters, a tile roof costs about $15,000 more than the
regular kind, but works in unison with the rough-cut stone
to add a pleasing patina to the overall palette of
Good architects are worth
Next is a hidden benefit of the lot. Many are sixty or
seventy feet wide, but this one spans 100-feet which allowed
for the free-flowing one-story design. Take a quick look at
the floorplan on page two, and you will notice the ideal
position of rooms. The entire right wing of the house is all
master bedroom--the remaining three bedrooms are on the
opposite side of the house. If you have children they will
turn into teenagers who play loud music (guaranteed to annoy
you), they roughhouse with their friends, and their "normal"
routine means they don't go to bed 'til the wee hours of the
night. With all this commotion, you will appreciate it takes
place on the opposite side of the house.
Is there any chance you may need to
take care of an elderly parent some day? Or do you have
parents that will make extended visits? If so, the
split-bedroom design affords maximum privacy for all.
The well-equipped kitchen
If you enjoy cooking, all the key components are here. Gas
cooking? Check. Double oven? Check. Island work station
where you can chop and mix ingredients? Yes. Try this. Count
the number of kitchen cabinets and drawers where you live
now. Compare them to the storage here--fifty-five cabinets
and drawers. Live here, and you will have a cooking space
where you can organize holiday dishes, oversized pots, bread
makers and tablecloths. There is also a butler's pantry that
a bottle rack and wine fridge.
Another surprising extra for a home
in this price range is the sitting room at the end of the
master bedroom. It has several potential uses--for exercise
equipment, and given the view through the back window it
would be perfect for a meditation room or in-home yoga
If you can get work done from home,
there is a designated office behind a set of French doors
that is big enough for a his-and-her's work space with
desks, printers, files and all electronic gear like cameras,
phones, chargers and supplies.
A lush setting in back
The current owners don't play golf, but you will understand
why they were attracted to a home overlooking the golf
course as soon as you step through the front door. From
almost every room in the house, the view in back is one
visual gulp of nature--rolling hills and manicured fairways.
This is a welcome sight if you have been disappointed when
looking at other "for sale" houses that seem fine until you
step out back and realize just how close you are to all the
neighbors, and you realize they can all see straight into
your house. No such issues here.
Extra garage or store
If you study the floorplan below, the wide lot allowed for
the inclusion of a "flex" space. There is a small extra
garage on the right side of the house. It will hold a sports
car, but the current owners use it like it is an attached
storage unit. You can keep lawn equipment here. Sports and
camping gear. Family heirlooms, and if you are a golf
fanatic, you can use it to park a golf cart.
A minor but important footnote about
the current owners is this--no children or pets have ever
lived in the house. Ladies and gentlemen, the home sparkles.
You could film a "Mr. Clean" commercial here.
This is a rare single-story residence. The back yard is
small, but it overlooks an oasis of scenery. The in-place
gardens are lush and colorful. This vest-pocket section of
Falcon Head is gated which means no through traffic--ideal
for taking a walk with your sweetie on pleasant evenings.
You could not get a better design for your long-term use, or
for sharing with elders. The friendly price is well under
the recent average. What are you waiting for? Please,
