Extensive Outdoor Living Spaces Mark Darling Home

April 25, 2016

Outdoor living spaces in the form of porches, courtyards and patios have become an integral part of home design, offering owners places to dine al fresco, host barbecues and enjoy the company of friends and family in a relaxed setting. Darling Homes excels in this area as is demonstrated by an awe-inspiring estate home at 42 May Water Lane.

The Mediterranean-style, four-bedroom home features a covered breezeway, tucked behind a lovely wrought-iron gate, leading to an expansive stone-and-brick courtyard. Here, dinner guests can enjoy the warmth of the outdoor fireplace before dining under the covered porch. The back of the home offers a spacious covered patio enhanced by a stunning view of one of Cross Creek Ranch’s beautiful lakes.

Glass pocket doors opening from the patio to the family room expand the already spacious interior. The great room, highlighted by wood ceiling beams and scraped hardwood floors, encompasses the family room, dining area and a striking farmhouse-style kitchen. The kitchen features white cabinets, granite countertops, a farmhouse sink and a vintage-looking vent augmented by delicate scroll work. An island and GE Monogram stainless-steel appliances — including a double oven and a refrigerator —make short work of dinner preparation, while a catering kitchen allows for easy entertaining.

An interesting feature of the home is the double fireplace that can be seen from the family room and the handsome study. At the end of the day, owners can watch the sun set over the lake from the bow window in the master suite. The sumptuous master bath offers a frameless walk-in shower, jetted tub, built-in linen cabinet and a walk-in closet large enough for a boutique’s worth of clothes. The 4,181-square-foot home, priced at $948,990, also has a guest casita, tiered media room and a three-car tandem garage.

Darling Homes offers luxury homes in several Cross Creek Ranch neighborhoods, priced from the $600,000s. Patio homes, priced from the $300,000s, are offered in The Pond enclave.

While many neighborhoods offer lake views, residents also can enjoy their beauty while walking along Cross Creek Ranch’s hiking-and-biking trails, lunching at Italian Maid Café or working out at the fitness center. Catch-and-release fishing is allowed on all lakes, as is non-motorized boating.
