Silver Lake Drive

Reflecting the sophisticated elegance of Tuscany, this home embodies a number of firsts for the city of Plano. Greeted by a Koi pond at the foyer, flowing into a creek under a bridge and into a free-form pool, complete with its own island, one quickly realizes there are many surprises to come. A below level wine-cellar, with swim-up lounge offers spectacular views, while intimate courtyards transport one to the countryside of Italy. Keeping in line with a Tuscan villa, the kitchen is blessed with generous size, height and windows, and a pizza oven, the first approved for residential use by the City of Plano. Where one big farm table often suffices for food preparation and dining, here 2 moveable, custom, wrought-iron tables, one with a butcher block top and one with granite, function as work stations. This home won the People’s Choice Award, in addition to Best Overall Craftsmanship, Best Architectural Design, Best Interior Design and Merchandising, Best Outdoor Environment, and Best Kitchen, Best Media room and Best Make-A-Wish Room by the Home and Apartment Builders Association of Metropolitan Dallas Parade of Homes, where many of the Dallas Metroplex elite builders were competing. This home was also featured in Traditional Home Magazine, and Dallas Business Journal for its buoyant, innovative design.
