Home SWEET! Home

Almost anyone who has had a custom-built home will tell you there’s something special about being part of the process – there’s always some “you” in your dwelling. Julie Short of Coldwell Banker Residential Mansfield likes to say, “If you can dream it, it can be built!”

This custom home with unique features and accents in the Southern tip of Mansfield not only accomplished the new dwellers’ desires; Short believes it will get you thinking about the possibilities for your own “symphony of style.”

Consider the tile murals of an exotic waterfall destination featured in the photo of the shower on the next page. Short says you can do that to help you escape. “And who doesn’t want a sink in the shower for shaving?” Short asks. “It only makes sense.”

Which is why that’s also part of this home. But there’s more. Note some of the other unique additions to this dwelling:

  • Beams restored from a historic southern Louisiana barn adorn the ceiling of the master bedroom, bringing a hint of the old to this eclectic design experience.
  • The home features recessed smart lighting that is voice-controlled, and it possesses an array of color possibilities that can set the tone for entertainment or relaxation – and everything in between.
  • Glass walls across the front and back allow for a beautiful view of the pond (yes, this lot provides access to a picturesque pond) and allows the passerby a sneak peek at this gorgeous abode – “just enough of a glimpse to get your mind wondering what the rest may look like,” Short says.
  • There’s a spacious media room, complete with theater seating, ensuring an entertainment hot spot for family members and friends who want to live large.

“This unique creation is the brainchild of a creative homeowner, a talented architect and a great home builder, who acts as conductor to bring all the beautiful instruments together in perfect harmony,” Short says. “I offer a big thank you to Mansfield Custom Homes for sharing this latest masterpiece.”

If you like what you see here, Short would love to visit with you about planning and constructing something like it – or something altogether different. “That’s the beauty of custom built homes,” Short says. “You can create anything you want.”
