Welcome home to 5813 Maciver Drive – nestled away from the city’s hustle, bustle and traffic congestion yet still a close commute to downtown and outlying areas with easy access to major employers, shopping, and entertainment. Stirling Bridge is a wonderful neighborhood that immediately greets you with its family friendly appeal – including open green spaces, ponds, and walking paths. Maciver Drive is a quiet cul-de-sac with homes backing to a lush dedicated green space, ponds and a scenic walking trail. The home has strategic views overlooking the natural pond from the back covered porch, main living room, and master bedroom. With no neighbors behind the home and minimal side neighbors, you can enjoy quiet, peaceful views of nature from the privacy of your own backyard. See all the photos!
As you approach the home, Texas native trees and wildflower plantings create a welcoming curb appeal in the front yard, along with a covered front porch with arched bays for butterfly garden viewing. Upon entering the home, a spacious study with French doors and vaulted ceiling is on the left. It has two windows for lots of light and is conveniently tucked away from the main activity that may be taking place in other areas of the home, making for a perfect home office or study. Next, there is a generous sized dining room easily accessible from the spacious open kitchen. The kitchen includes a sunlit breakfast nook, modern appliances, and plenty of cabinet storage and counter space to make any cook feel right at home. Behind the kitchen nook is a utility room and pantry which also serves as an entry/exit to the garage. With the open kitchen/living floor plan, you can prepare meals in the kitchen while also participating in or observing the activity taking place in the living area. The roomy living room includes a cozy brick fireplace, a wall-mounted TV on articulating arm above, two windows upgraded with custom sound proofing, and a backdoor with half window for viewing (along with a storm outer door for full views when open). The double windows and backdoor provide views of the large backyard and dedicated green space and pond just beyond.
Past the living room is the spacious main floor master bedroom with a framed view of the natural pond and green space behind the home, a spacious walk-in closet, and private master bath with double vanity, deep soaking tub, and separate walk-in shower.
Off a small hallway connecting the dining, kitchen, living room, and master bedroom, is a conveniently placed half bath.
Upstairs, in addition to three good sized, well-lit bedrooms, there is an open bonus room/ loft area which can be outfitted to be used as a workout room, media room, craft area or play space. It could even be easily converted into a fifth bedroom if an additional bedroom were required. A full bathroom off the hall with double vanity and shower/tub serves the upstairs, along with a linen closet.
With a great location, amazing backyard views, privacy, and plenty of rooms and flexible space, this house is sure to please. Schedule a showing to see it soon!
