We’ve all seen them: the new or remodeled Craftsman or Craftsman-style home that banks a lot on the name but doesn’t quite get there with the style.
Thankfully, this lovely Crestview home is the opposite of whatever that is. It was built a few years ago as its current owners’ custom dream home, but things change, and now it is on the market for the first time since then.
The owners’ enthusiasm for the home shows in the details, refreshing elements of both quality and style. The 2,353-square-foot, two-story home has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as a study with custom built-ins. Custom cabinetry from Austin Wood Works and wood floors extend throughout the house, which also has 10-foot ceilings on the first floor, a gourmet kitchen, and a large mud/laundry room.
There are quartz Caesarstone and Silestone counters tops in kitchen and bathrooms; extensive custom interior trim (including wainscoting); five-panel, solid-core doors; and six-inch baseboards.
The cook’s kitchen features Kitchen Aid Pro gourmet appliances, including double ovens, a six-burner pro range, and a built-in refrigerator.
Upstairs, the dark-toned study is a nice foil to the light and minimal bedrooms. Bathrooms feature high-end custom tile throughout, with Marazzi Oxford Tile in the powder room.
A fairly paradisiacal-looking backyard has a big deck with custom metal trellises and a gas grill hook-up for pleasant times under a big heritage pecan tree.
Meanwhile, in the yard itself, there are raised bed gardens ready for fall plantings and a chicken coop, with three chickens that convey if the buyer wants them.
In contrast, tech-wise, there’s also a 240-volt outlet in the garage for an electric vehicle charger.
