Luxury upgrades hide inside this lovely La Cantera home
Fort Worth’s dynamic growth and hottest new developments are propelling ever west. 5309 Pradera Ct. lies in the latest and third phase of the wildly successful La Cantera development, which opened in March 2000.
Along with high-end housing, the project will include multi-family housing, retail, and 88 acres of designated green space. The recreational Lake Benbrook — with accompanying campgrounds and trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding — is a mere five miles south.
This particular home is priced at $675,000 by Briggs Freeman listing agent Johnny Purselley.
Behind the arched entry of the 3,593-square-foot home lies an expansive open floor plan with rustic hardwood floors throughout, consistent with the house’s Tudor facade. On the right through a pair of French doors is sizable room clearly intended for a home office, but with a door to a half bath and small closet. It could serve as a spare bedroom in a pinch. To the left is a separate dining room which connects to the kitchen via a butler’s pantry.
Continuing on, a corridor leads to two bedrooms of nearly equal size with a large Jack-and-Jill bath. Also off the corridor is a handsome staircase leading to a cozy room under the eaves. With its own bath and closet, it ups the official three bedroom count to four, but since it's separated from the rest of the house it would make an excellent media or workout room.
The heart of the house is the open living area with beams and a commanding fireplace. A grand central island; covetable six-burner, dual-fuel commercial range with griddle; and upgraded granite dress up the kitchen. Outside under a covered patio is an additional fireplace.
A small passageway off the kitchen leads to the master suite. The spacious bedroom connects to a luxurious stunner of a master bath with rich, rectangular slate floors and Carrara marble vanities and tub surround. And behind that tub wall? It can only be described as shower room, with two heads and twin benches in each corner.
A full laundry room with faucet and scrub sink lies off a hall and mud room, leading to the three-car garage.
