At first glance, it might seem like 5809 Melshire Dr. is all about the kitchen. The marble waterfall countertops, glass-fronted cabinets, Thermador appliances, chic light fixtures, and endless amounts of storage are easy to fall in love with, as is the temperature-controlled wine closet with an extra wine refrigerator. And it's all open to the living and dining areas, which are surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the backyard and pool.
But then the rest of the 5,717-square-foot home reveals itself, and it's suddenly hard to pick a favorite part. The 2016-built two-story in Melshire Estates boasts all the desirable "numbers": 5-inch plank hardwoods, 10-foot-high ceilings on the ground floor, a three-car garage, a 16 SEER air conditioning unit to match the rest of the home's high-efficiency foam insulation.
Those great numbers continue with five bedrooms, one of which is conveniently downstairs for a secluded nanny or guest bedroom. The master suite is attached to a tranquil bathroom that's clad in beautiful stone and features a stand-alone tub and large walk-in shower. But the term "walk-in" is inadequate for the master closet, which is more like a small, elegantly organized boutique than a simple repository for clothing and shoes.
Add in five full bathrooms and two half-baths, plus a game room that's outfitted with its own kitchenette and bar, and the interior seems just about perfect. But the exterior, with its large covered patio and lagoon-esque pool, adds an extra dimension to this already stunning home.
Ebby Halliday Realtors' Michelle Wesley has the listing, which is priced at $1,985,000.
