Old-world elegance meets modern comfort in this Mediterranean-style estate in Frisco’s prestigious Starwood Village. Situated on more than half an acre in the exclusive gated community, the 8,020-square-foot house charms inside and out.
On approach, the manicured grounds, stucco façade, and decorative ironwork hint at the grandeur waiting inside. With its soaring ceiling and imperial staircase, the foyer makes a dramatic first impression. To the left, a spacious library features a fireplace, hardwood floors, built-in bookshelves, and floor-to-ceiling millwork. On the opposite side of the entrance, there’s a generous wine room and a formal dining area that offers plentiful natural light and ample space for entertaining a crowd.
Beyond the foyer, a sitting area and formal living room sit adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen, which opens onto a breakfast nook and expansive great room, both of which feature massive windows offering sweeping views of the resort-style backyard. The master suite has similar views, as well as access to the sprawling patio. A fitness room, media room, utility room, and guest bedroom are also downstairs. On the second floor, three additional bedrooms feature walk-in closets and en suite baths. There’s also a large game room with a built-in bar and access to a balcony overlooking the backyard.
The luxuries continue outside, where the backyard boasts a variety of perks, including a swimming pool with an attached spa and water feature and a covered patio with a built-in grill and stone-surround fireplace. The home’s prime location on the community trail means there’s also direct access to the jogging path and bike path. Other neighborhood amenities include a club house, park, playground, private lake, community pool, and guarded entrance.
With its sought-after location, thoughtful layout, and modern conveniences (including a motor court flanked by a two-car garage and separate one-car garage), this rare home is the complete package for families and empty nesters alike.
