A home that combines a welcoming farmhouse exterior with a sleek and chic modern interior is truly the best of both worlds, especially when it also comes loaded with perks.
Completed in 2016 by Southgate Homes, 7650 Cassion Dr. in the Frisco community The Canals at Grand Park is full of upgrades, starting with the roomy front porch and dramatic two-story entryway, which is crowned by a light fixture that feels more like floating artwork than an electrical necessity. That airiness extends past the open staircase into the main living room, with its beamed vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling fireplace (an equally impressive fireplace can be found outside on the covered back patio).
The 4,984-square-foot home's open layout connects the living space to a gourmet kitchen, which shows off a crisp white color palette and huge quartz island. Seemingly miles of countertop surround a built-in refrigerator, six-burner gas range with griddle, and a butler's pantry that leads to an eight-foot-deep pantry.
Two bedrooms and another full bath join the master suite downstairs. The master bath is a spa-like retreat, with floating vanities, quartz countertops, and a walk-in shower and tub. Not a separate tub and shower — a large soaking tub actually in the walk-in shower. A built-in dresser and room for seasonal storage further elevate the walk-in closet, which with its expansive footprint and sunny windows almost feels like a mini-boutique.
Upstairs are two more oversize bedrooms, each with walk-in closets and their own baths. A game room separates the upstairs media room — with its raised bar area behind all the seating — from the bedrooms, and includes great storage plus a built-in desk area for homework.
Even the home's utilitarian spaces are thoughtfully and stylishly designed. The large utility room has space for a freezer along with a sink and its own wall-mounted drinking fountain. Custom-built lockers and a half bath can be found along the way to the four-car garage.
The expansive backyard doesn't have a pool, because it doesn't need one: The home has full access to the community's water park-like pool and state-of-the-art fitness center. Quarterly HOA dues also help maintain the neighborhood's blooming flower beds and lush landscaping.
