Have you ever walked into a beautiful custom built home only to step out to the back and see nothing custom about it? Maybe you’ll see green grass extending from the covered patio and you’ll see an uninspiring fence that tells you and your neighbor how close you can get to their house without trespassing. It’s almost as if the builder spent 99% of his time and resources on the house and 1% to fill in the back, then turns to you and says, “Here’s your amazing home, the rest is up to you.” Some people may like that kind of home, but if you enjoy any amount of fresh air, you’re going to want more out of the back than just grass and fence. Luckily, there are custom built homes in Georgetown for sale that do not neglect the very reason it sits on one of the biggest lots in the neighborhood (over 1.75 acres). Welcome to 121 Silverstone, located in the highly desirable Westlake of the Woods in Georgetown, where a professionally landscaped yard matches the details and quality of a custom built home.
Despite the tremendous amount of time, effort, and money spent on the landscaping, there is a separate feature that acts as the primary focal point to everything and that is the swimming pool. A custom pool designed and built by Optima Pools is where it all begins. Complete with waterfalls, ambient lighting, and a radius wall formed of Texas limestone, this can be seen from the portrait windows in the living room, but more importantly hidden from the road and curious neighbors. The mesa pearl surface sparkles in the sun and flows from a depth of 3 feet to 7 feet making it appropriate for all ages. There is even a seated area for those who like to just dip your feet in the pool.
Surrounding the custom pool is the professional landscaping strategically placed to maximize beauty and privacy. With most of the trees and plants being native to Texas, they are highly drought resistant and require very little watering apart from the natural rain fall. So don’t worry about high water bills or constant maintenance, it’s been taken care of for you. River rocks and large stones have been brought in to direct water drainage around the home and also provide a nice dry creek in the summer.
Let’s not forget the 3,233 sf of premium living space. Three secondary bedrooms share two full bathrooms, perfect for most families’ needs. One of these bedrooms can be easily used as a home office. The flex or game room is smartly located near the bedrooms to keep noise away from the master bedroom late at night or early in the morning. An upgraded kitchen has an island consisting of a large granite slab that is open to the living room and breakfast area. The portrait windows not only provide great views, but enormous amounts of natural light. The formal dining room is just a few steps away from the double ovens making it easy to entertain during the holidays and a spacious master suite sits on the other side of the home for maximum privacy. A semi circle pass through for visitors, an extra long driveway, and a three car garage make great space of this over-sized corner lot.
Offered at $549,000, this home exemplifies what a custom built home in Georgetown should be. More importantly is the location, as it leads to exemplary-rated Georgetown ISD schools.
