Palatial Lake Lewisville retreat promises serious R&R minutes from the city
As soon as you come up the driveway at 808 Lake Breeze Dr. in Highland Village, it's like the rest of the world has melted away. Straight ahead is Lake Lewisville, and all around are leafy trees and gorgeous views, shielding you from reality.
The 6,392-square-foot manse is listed with Bridget Hupp of Briggs Freeman for $999,990, a steal when you consider its size and prime location. Indeed, you can even boat up in your own backyard, and the expansive deck is perfect for both entertaining dozens of friends or sipping wine at sunset with your sweetheart.
Inside, a grand entry tiled with marble has unobstructed sightlines to the lake. Whether you kick back in the more formal living room or the comfortable family room — with its stately stone fireplace —the view is never far away. An open kitchen features lots of storage space, especially in the island, stained a contrasting color to highlight its prime position.
The five bedrooms also tout beautiful views, but the master bedroom's tiered ceiling enhances what's outside. Along that theme, a coffered ceiling in the office, left its natural wood color, brings the outdoors inside even more.
There's a mirrored exercise room in addition to the spacious master bathroom, along with a hidden bonus space for, well, whatever you want. Total, there are five-and-a-half baths.
Another bonus is the media room, with recliners arranged in a stadium seating configuration and a projector to make what you're watching larger than life.
Think you have to truly escape the city to get this kind of peace? DFW Airport is less than 30 minutes away, I-35 is only 10 and convenient shopping is practically around the corner. It just feels like you're in a secluded country retreat.
