The country estate at 1083 Burkett Road in Sherman boasts 52 acres of rolling hills and a state of the art remodel that was completed last year. Currently listed for $875,000, this single story home’s 3,715 square feet of living space spans across a main house and a guest house.
The two homes are joined by a porte cochere, providing a covered walkway between the two. A long driveway leads up to the ranch style home surrounded by mature trees and green rolling hills.
Rounded features are prominent on the exterior of the home with arching windows and a front door with oval shaped windows.
A chandelier stands above the foyer which opens onto a bright open living area.
The remodel included extensive work on the kitchen. Light Crema Springs granite was installed along side 12-inch Sahara Marble subway tile for the backsplash. Kitchenaid stainless steel appliances were installed as well as a Jenn Air indoor grill.
The kitchen is a chef’s dream with gourmet stainless steel cooktop and sink. Updated can lighting and new fixtures help illuminate the preparation space created by the island.
The floor to ceiling windows provide incredible views from the kitchen, eating and living areas. Listing agent Lisa Moden with Ebby Halliday Realtors in Whitesboro said the rolling hills and a private pond create a picturesque setting, perfect for sipping your coffee.
“It’s the most spectacular view with the water and the rolling hills and with elevation changes,” Moden said. “It’s surrounded by trees and you don’t see any other properties. It’s very private.”
The expansive property has no possibility for neighbors on three sides. The land for the home reaches all the way to the road on those three sides, making for extreme privacy.
The flooring throughout the home was upgraded to hand-scraped bamboo and natural 18-by-18 inch travertine tiles. The flooring colors are reflected by the freshly painted walls and ceiling, which mirror the gray-taupe and white color scheme of the home.
A chandelier illuminates the large living space adding additional brightness to the already naturally bright home. The chandelier sits inside a cutout in the ceiling designated for an ornate light fixture.
High-backed chairs sit elegantly on either side of a large fireplace. The exterior wall of the living area is lined with windowed doors opening to the picturesque setting outside. The living and dining spaces flow freely with an open floor plan.
An expansive master suite includes a sitting area and spa-like master bath. The bathroom includes an oversized soaker tub, large seamless shower and Carrera Marble vanities. An ornate bevelled glass window sits high above the soaking tub, allowing in light but maintaining privacy.
Floors in the master suite are upgraded with bamboo, while the three other bedrooms have been outfitted with high-end carpeting.
The home also includes a separate formal dining area and laundry room.
The guest apartment has been updated from top to bottom as well. New flooring, sheetrock and finishes were added. Travertine and new fixtures were added as well. The apartment includes a bedroom, full bath and kitchen area. The extra space could also be used as an office.
A two-car garage provides parking for residents of the home.
Extending off the back side of the main house, covered patios allow for enjoyment of the scenic views in any weather. The crushed granite patio is surrounded by large stones and framed by flat limestones.
The rolling property is fenced for cattle or horses and is complete with a three stall barn. Each stall has a separate outdoor paddock and three frost-free water faucets. The barn also includes a large tack room and cross tie area for grooming and cattle chutes.
The property also includes pipe corrals and divided pastures ideal for cattle or horses.
The acreage includes two ponds. The larger pond is well-stocked with bass and catfish perfect for family fishing tournaments and barbecues.
