On the Market
Looking to add a little drama to your dinner parties? At 231 Latham Dr., you can slide open the rustic barn doors for a big reveal of the dining room, with its wall of windows and timelessly elegant light fixture.
There are several glamorous touches to be found through the American Legend home, which has only had one owner since its 2012 construction. It is located in the Fairview Downs neighborhood, right above The Village at Allen, Fairview Town Center, and Allen Premium Outlets, so superior shopping, dining, and entertainment are all just a stone's throw away. A greenbelt and hike and bike trails are also nearby.
But you may not feel the need to go out often, thanks to a media room that comes with built-in speakers and an oversized game room with a Juliet balcony and a wall of windows that allows copious amounts of natural light.
Downstairs, the open gourmet kitchen is outfitted with such entertaining must-haves as a built-in wine rack and large island with extra seating. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a five-burner gas range, walk-in pantry, and plenty of cabinet and drawer storage complete the setup, along with a large window overlooking the expansive yard with its stained concrete patio and TV area with CFA lights, lush landscaping, lots of trees, and a sprinkler system.
The main living room is crowned by a corner stone fireplace that extends up to the two-story ceiling, which nicely complements the hand-scraped hardwood floors and yet more windows. A first-floor study with plantation shutters is a great front-of-home bonus space.
There are four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and one partial bath in the 3,533-square-foot home. The master suite has more of those sophisticated plantation shutters, as well as a roomy walk-in closet, granite countertops, dual vanities, and a sparkly chandelier over the soaking tub.
Don't overlook the home's eco-conscious aspects, either: a 13-15 SEER air conditioning unit; low-e, double-pane windows; two gas water heaters; and a programmable thermostat all help to keep costs low and the ecological imprint small.
The O'Gorman Group with Ebby Halliday Realtors has the listing, which is priced at $470,000.
