Monday Millionaire: 5211 Farquhar is an English Manor in Texas With a Saltwater Pool!

Published September 25, 2012 by Joanna England


You guys, I am showing incredible restraint today by not filling this post with a bajillion pictures of this amazing home in Inwood Terrace. You’ll have to click through to the Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s listing for 5211 Farquhar because it is just so beautiful.

OK, now that you’re back, let’s talk about this sexy beast of a house. This home, which was built in 2009, was designed by Richard Drummond Davis and is a perfectly executed homage to an English manor. There are four bedrooms, five baths and two half baths over 5,932 square feet and on just over half an acre for $2.995 million.

 

The home is 100 percent immaculate, and has an amazing kitchen (high-end appliances and custom finishes) that opens to an equally phenomenal breakfast nook with a fireplace. I guess you might actually call it a “keeping room,” right?

The bedrooms are spacious, and the copious windows let in a ton of light, which makes the home feel less like a huge, cold building and more like a warm cottage.

The bathrooms are just beautiful too. Tons of calming neutrals and spa-like amenities. Multi-head showers and jetted tubs beg to help you wash your bad days away.

For me, the huge attraction is the outdoor areas. From the upstairs balcony you can survey the lush garden below, which encircles an amazing saltwater pool with a jetted spa and a little calming waterfall and circulating river.

The loggia has tons of seating area and an outdoor kitchen, too, which makes this home the perfect place for an avid entertainer.

Tell me, are you as in love as I am?
