The kitchen truly is the heart of 6924 Santa Barbara Dr. in Dallas, where family and friends can gather around the massive island that's crowned by a gleaming, white, solid-surface top.
An open plan allows light to flood through the 2015-built contemporary home, which uses its 3,311 square feet effectively. Two of the five bedrooms are on the main floor, including the master retreat in the rear. It's comprised of a sitting area, chic fireplace, walk-in closet, and serene bathroom with separate tub and shower. The spa-like getaway also boasts the most useful of all bathroom features: dual vanities.
The main level's secondary bedroom is currently being used as a media room, and is outfitted as such with room-darkening window coverings. But when it's time to let in the light, sliding doors open to a private side patio. Upstairs, three additional bedrooms await, two that feature Jack-and-Jill baths and one with its own private suite. A bonus space at the top of the stairs is ideal as a sitting area or game nook.
Back in the kitchen, professional series appliances and a walk-in pantry should thrill amateur cooks, while a separate bar area is a must for entertaining.
Vaulted ceilings and a modern brick fireplace highlight the home's sleek, modern style. A wall of sliding doors leads out to the covered rear deck and large yard, which happens to be big enough for a pool (if that's something you're looking to add). But remember that water is only minutes away at White Rock Lake, while the shopping and dining of Lakewood is nearby and the Katy Trail White Rock Loop bike trail extension is across the street.
Listed by the Hickman + Weber Group with Ebby Halliday Realtors, this contemporary stunner is priced at $849,900.
