Charming Darling Home Boasts Ample Architectural Flourishes, Storage

August 01, 2016

Equipped with a cozy hearth room and a cheery eat-in kitchen, Darling Homes’ patio home design at 46 Sweet Creek Lane exudes warmth and charm.

The gorgeously landscaped front yard enhances the appeal of the red brick-and-stone elevation. As a bonus, the homeowners association maintains the lawn so owners won’t have to worry about upkeep. A survey of the interior reveals glossy wood floors throughout the common areas, plush carpeting in the bedrooms and custom tile in the bathrooms. At the front of the home, a comfortable bedroom boasts French doors, allowing the room to flex into a home office or a children’s play area. A second bedroom welcomes weekend guests.

The spacious great room encompasses the kitchen, family room and hearth room. Anchored by an attractive fireplace with room for a flat-screen television, the hearth room is a snug den, perfect for family gatherings. Volume ceilings and a wall of oversized windows create an airy feeling in keeping with the casual elegance of the home. Sporting contemporary white cabinets, exotic granite counters and stainless-steel appliances — including a refrigerator — the kitchen allows guests to join the chef at the prep-and-eat island for girls’ night fun or game day snacks.

Once the guests have departed, owners can retire to the secluded master suite. The stylish room offers a casual seating area in front of bay windows overlooking the fully landscaped backyard. Double doors open to a well-appointed bath with a garden tub, separate shower and a room-sized walk-in closet that can store just about anything. If extra storage is required, however, the design is outfitted with Darling’s signature Texas basement. Offering up to 450 square feet of attic space accessible by a stationary staircase, the basement is a safer alternative to unfinished attics. Priced at $349,953, the design also has a two-car garage, covered patio and a mudroom.

Darling Homes’ patio designs are located in The Pond neighborhood of Cross Creek Ranch. This beautiful area is within walking distance of the community’s 50-acre Polishing Pond and Boardwalk. Here, residents can enjoy after-dinner walks as the sun sets over the water. Other amenities offered in Cross Creek Ranch include an on-site cafe, a dog park, tennis courts, water park and a fitness center.
