All the Amenities, None of the Restrictions – 100 Woodcrest in North Lake

If you like being outside, this is the home for you.

Ever imagine what it would be like to grill a burger or sunbathe by the swimming pool without a nosy neighbor looking in? 100 Woodcrest is a 1600-sf 3-bedroom home for sale in Georgetown, Texas (offered at $250,000), located in the heavily wooded subdivision of North Lake.  This property provides perfect privacy on 2.5+ acres with Mr. and Mrs. Wooded Lot to the left, Mr. and Mrs. Greenbelt to the right, and Mr. and Mrs. Your Own Private Park to the rear.  Although the interior has been recently updated by the current owner, the true appreciation of this home starts from the outside.

No nosy neighbors peeking into your pool.

The back patio is the perfect place to hang out, have a drink, and enjoy nature without any neighbors in sight.  With natural cover from the trees, it’s only a few paces to the private swimming pool.  The swimming pool has a personal gazebo and is fenced with white pickets for beauty and safety.  If you’re a “hands on” person, head straight to the workshop just past the grilling and smoking station on your right.  The workshop is perfect to store your power tools, lawn equipment, pool accessories, and boxes of old photo albums.  It also has plenty of cabinets and peg boards for neat organization.  Who says a workshop has to be messy?  The greenhouse is conveniently joined to the workshop.  No need to lug a bag of garden tools.  Grab what you need, do your gardening, and neatly place the tool back where it belongs without breaking a sweat!  You could enjoy the entire day on the patio, in the pool, in the workshop, or in the greenhouse, and not have a single complaint.  Except that you would’ve missed out on horseback riding.

Great place to hide and protect your tools.

There is a 3-stall horse barn located on the west side of the property.  It’s construction out of metal and wood are built for durability and versatility – you can convert any or all of the horse stalls to an open gym, chicken coup, boat house, or RV garage complete with its own driveway. Currently the horses have their own ramp to the paddock for water and hay.  The paddock opens up to the pasture in the rear of the property for daily grazing.  The paddock and entire  pasture have been fenced off so there is no worry of horses galloping away, or unwanted animals entering your property.  The pasture can also be converted (mowed) to your own personal park.  Just be sure to watch your step if you’ve had horses back there!

Horse shoe rack to remind you that this is for horses.

It is rare to find a property with all these amenities in Georgetown without tight HOA restrictions.  Even in North Lake, other homes may have a pool, or barn, or workshop, or acreage, or privacy, or lots of mature trees, but no other home in North Lake gives you all of these amenities at once, except 100 Woodcrest, making this a true one-of-a-kind property.

There's even more green in the back.

Luxury Home in Round Rock – 3551 Alexandrite in Walsh Ranch

It’s not often you find a true luxury home in Round Rock for under $100/sf that also feeds into exemplary-rated Cactus Ranch ES and James Garland Walsh MS (schools independently rated by Texas Education Agency). It’s not often you find a home with a game room, home theater, formal dining, living room, and second living room for $365,000. It’s not often you find a floor plan with three secondary bedrooms on the second floor, and master bedroom with dedicated home office or study on the first floor. This is a rare find in the highly desired subdivision of Walsh Ranch and 3551 Alexandrite has all the updates and upgrades you’d expect in this neighborhood.

Picture perfect setting in Walsh Ranch.

A feeling of grandeur consumes you when you enter through the wood door with its custom glass and wrought iron work. Your eyes immediately look up to the soaring vaulted ceilings, just barely after getting a glimpse of the wood floors beneath you. The foyer insists you take a moment to appreciate the size of the front entry way. The second living room and formal dining room flank you and watch closely as you make your next move.

Foyer serves as an appetizer to the main house.

The impeccable kitchen is fit for a chef or a home maker.  Long stretches of granite, tiled back splash, and stainless steel appliances are pleasing to the eye and easy to clean.  The over-sized center island is more like The Big Island (instead of the standard Oahu-sized islands).  The big island provides for more counter space (to cook or to eat on) and more storage space underneath.  You’ll also notice a wood built-in bookcase for all your cook books and recipes.

With a kitchen this nice you'll want to eat in it, too.

After your gourmet meal, bring a bag of popcorn upstairs to enjoy a movie in your home theater.  Surround sound and plenty of room for theater-style seating, this is just like going to the movies on a Friday night except you don’t have to wait in line and no one will look at you funny if you’re in your pj’s.  Actually, as owner of the theater, you can do, wear, and watch whatever you want!

Be the boss of your own theater.

The one thing someone might have a problem with is the back yard.  It has a beautiful wood-stained deck, mature trees, plenty of green grass to run around in, and a rock wall for ultimate privacy.  However, it backs to a two-lane section of Sam Bass Road. This particular section is not heavily traveled and has a slow speed limit of 35 mph.  You don’t get fast moving vehicles or heavy-duty 18-wheelers and it’s impossible to hear any road noise from the interior of the home.  You’ll still be able to enjoy the occasional back yard barbecue  and clear starry nights with your friends and family.

Most people would love a back yard like this. Wouldn't you?

Large Home at Exceptional Value – 1801 Chino Valley in Round Rock Ranch

If you’re looking for a big home with four bedrooms, game room, separate dining room, living room, and second living room, 1801 Chino Valley is the house for you.  Priced at $162,900 with 3,312 sf ($49/sf), this is the lowest priced home in the entire neighborhood of Round Rock Ranch.  In fact, in the past 12 months, only one home sold for less and it was a foreclosure in bad condition.  Needless to say, this home is an exceptional value.

The size of this 4 BR home is not reflected in the low price.

This home is not just a big box with lots of square feet.  The first floor is upgraded with wood floors and unique architectural features.  There is an extended patio in the back with a separate pergola for starry nights.  The back yard is lined with mature, shady trees to protect from hot summer days and give natural privacy.  You would not expect to see these upgrades in this price range, but they’re here and ready for you to enjoy right when you move in. The second floor can use a flooring update as the carpet is worn.  This is the only update I would suggest, but what a great excuse to choose whatever flooring you want!

Extensive wood flooring throughout the first floor.
