Property Description

Exceptional value in the coveted Estates Section (1/4 acre lots) of Front Gate, City of Fair Oaks Ranch. San Antonio Express News ranked it in the top 7 hottest areas. Made the top ten statewide--Texas Monthly--based on its award-winning schools, low crime, high net worth, no-SA taxes and the miles of horse and human trails. LOCATION is #1--EZ access to I-10, the upcoming HEB and the nearby Hill Country treasures. Neighbors stroll, walk their dogs, and ride their golf carts on the wide curbed streets. Teenagers and adults golf cart off to the nearby idyllic, attitude-free, amenity-filled Fair Oaks Ranch Country Club. Compare my home with Highland Homes last home, closing out. I created exceptional value by upgrading at builder cost while working for a builder. I upgraded the already upgraded home--so it's done, it's included-- saving you $$$. Impossible to duplicate this one of kind combination of land and home, if you could--a million plus! Lien-and-lease-free Solar panels; Level 2 EV charger; guttering; equipped home theater; a soft water filtering/conditioning system. A rare level-front no stairs entrance at 1450 ft. elevation. It's always slightly cooler up here in this botanical garden setting with native trees and flora! Space saved for a pool. Enjoy this view from inside but you won't be seeing the rear neighbor; blocked by dense trees. Loads of privacy! The home's exterior architectural design is timeless, approachable elegance. Inside--the foyer spans 20 feet, allowing natural light to flow throughout the home; a major reason for the home's light and bright vibe. Light travels through the large and numerous Low-E windows complementing the interior finishes' palette of warm whites and soft light greys. The dining room seats 8+. The study is real--not a want-to-be-featuring a floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall bookcase. The spacious living offers a "wall of windows", a sloped ceiling and corner fireplace. The family room flooring continues into the adjoining kitchen but different ceilings define the spaces, creating the perfect amount of "openness". The kitchen contains all the goodies: custom cabinetry, quartz tops, stainless KitchenAid appliances and two pantries! A stunning carved Chateau-sized exhaust vent hood works great with the paired professional-grade six burner gas cooktop. The refrigerator is another gift. The enormous island is functional perfection. The breakfast nook doesn't know that it's not a sunroom! I follow the sun and the stars through the primary suites' four bay windows and marvel at the high ceilings with the interesting details. The thoughtful bath includes a King-sized tub. I had to feel the floor tile and shower surround tile to believe that it was not marble! The 2nd door to the laundry from the owner closet clinched it for me! The 3-car oversized garage features an EV Charger ($3K value) for your next vehicle! Night charging is a little over a $1.00 for 250 miles of range. Daytime is zero courtesy of solar! Walk-out attic storage. The media room's surround sound system produces performance hall quality pairing with the 82' TV's life-like pictures. All 4 bedrooms--2 up--2 down--have king sized beds (furnishings negotiable). The uber-efficient zoned HVAC provides HEPA filtered outside air refreshes the home's air several times an hour and almost eliminating dust and viruses! The solar panels save $100s monthly and their value increases when CPS rate increases. Excess production is automatically sold back to CPS. A well-thought-out floorplan and design that was built well; all by people who cared. The owner cared even more. It was love by meticulously maintaining, thoughtfully compounding value through well thought-out improvements. I fully think you will love it too!
