Property descriptionOVERVIEWResting behind the gates of Frisco’s prestigious Lakes on Legacy Drive, this beautiful home offers over 5,000 square feet of relaxed luxury. From its impressive front portico to its lake vistas from most rooms, the residence evokes a lifestyle of casual sophistication. Throughout the home there are vaulted ceilings, arched doorways, crown molding, and abundant bay and bow windows with plantation shutters. This is a lakeside residence seemingly far from the madding crowd, yet convenient to schools, services, shopping and dining. It is mere minutes from Legacy West and The Star District.
LIVING | DINING | GREAT ROOM
Through the two-story portico with its Tuscan columns, the entryway hosts a towering tray ceiling, striking chandelier, grand staircase with wrought iron balusters, highly polished wood plank floor and clerestory windows. Immediately, the enchanting light and air of spaciousness create a welcoming ambiance.
That ambiance is equally palpable in the dramatic living room where a 2-story wall of windows touches the coffered ceiling and provides a view of the pool, lake and sky. The fireplace is surrounded by a floor-to-ceiling bank of architectural niches perfect for the display of fine art.
Enter the formal dining room through pairs of stylized Corinthian columns and enjoy a repast beneath the striking barrel-vaulted ceiling. Next door, the butler’s pantry, with its built-in china cabinet and wine refrigerator, leads to the gourmet kitchen. Here, counters, breakfast bar and prep island are topped with sumptuous stone, and stainless Thermador appliances and plentiful cabinets will certainly please the most discriminating cook.
The kitchen opens to an informal dining area, substantial wet bar, and large family room. This “great room” is surely the heart of the home. The family room itself hosts a fireplace and built-in entertainment center, and a large bay alcove providing panoramic views of the pool and lake.
ENTRY LEVEL MASTER AND GUEST SUITES
One need not venture but a few steps inside the front door to be in a comfortable guestroom. The room hosts an alcove with large windows, a built-in desk and bookshelves, and a handsome bath en suite.
The 1st floor master suite, with its luxurious bath, pass-through walk-in closets, sitting area, mini coffee bar and adjacent office/library, is a true sanctuary. The 6 large windows in its bow alcove provide a lake vista, while windows flanking the fireplace offer views of the pool and spa. The lavish bathroom, generously embellished with natural stone, features a double steam shower, jacuzzi soaking tub and dual sinks. Old world patina abounds in the office or library where gorgeous wood paneling cloaks the walls and coffered ceiling, and the classic wood fireplace mantel and bookcases further enhance the cerebral ambiance of the room.
UPPER LEVEL ENTERTAINMENT AND GUEST ROOMS
The landing at the summit of the grand staircase creates a balcony overlooking the living room. Nearby, a versatile media room awaits. The balcony extends along a gallery corridor, providing views of the pool and lake via the floor-to-ceiling windows of the living room below. At the end of this corridor, a small balcony bestows another glimpse of the pool and lake, there is a raised sitting or game room, a 3rd bedroom with bath en suite, and two additional guestrooms with a shared bath.
Tasteful front landscaping includes mature trees, hedges, lawn and a broad driveway leading to the spacious 3-car garage. In the backyard, the sparkling infinity pool and inpool spa with their flagstone surround provide unobstructed views of the lake and peaceful promenade just a stone’s throw away.
There is no doubt this is one of the finest homes in the Lakes on Legacy Drive community -- and, perhaps, in all of Frisco.
