As Brent and Karen Cooper prepare to leave their luxurious Georgian-style dwelling located a stone’s throw from the West Fork of the Trinity River, they will fondly recall their time there – starting the moment they found the lot and decided to build there in 1990.
“Our boys were brought up next to tennis courts, a baseball field, a soccer field and a park,” Karen says. “All the recreational facilities they needed were at their doorstep. Halfway into the backyard you step into another world – you leave the city and walk into a private oasis. The worries of the job and other stresses of daily life were left behind, even if only temporarily.”
The house the Coopers built was custom-designed for both elegance and functionality. It is ideal for entertainment – Karen says the family held several indoor and outdoor weddings on the grounds. She also notes that with 20-foot ceilings for much of the first floor, there is ample room to display an art collection.
The master bedroom is strategically located on the first floor and the other bedrooms are located upstairs. There are three sets of stairs to ensure that there are ample connections between the first and second floors. “The private study makes the home ideal for working at home during times like we have had the past year,” she says. “The home has been the setting for commercials, as well as television interviews.”
The home is listed by the Magazzine Group/Ebby Halliday Realtors. For more information, call 817-654-8405.
