Harman Ranches exists to connect people of high character around places that exude character, this home is no exception. Downtown Fredericksburg is a jigsaw of quiet little side streets, places that are quiet enough to feel secluded, but near enough to make walking a part of your lifestyle.
Here, on one of these side-streets, there’s a beautiful white homefront looking out. Built by a builder to be their family’s home for the coming decades, it sits perfectly demure among the neighboring houses, but step inside and there’s a white and glorious light that greets your every step. This home wraps itself with windows, around a deep-blue pool. A place that knows the laughter of children joined by the laughter of adults as each moves seamlessly in and out from the kitchen to the dining area to the poolside, all joined and commingled together. This is a home for doing life with others. While the sleeping quarters are removed from the living spaces, it’s designed to hold all of life’s seamless transitions in one wide-open space. So work doesn’t feel like work, and cooking doesn’t feel so solitary, and homework doesn’t happen in some far-off corner. Here, you do life, together.
This home was constructed by Tandem Building Corporation, known for their higher degree of excellence in constructing many of the shared spaces (clubhouse, pool, etc.) and finest homes at Boot Ranch. This home was the culmination of years of seeing interesting ideas implemented and finer finish points executed with exacting standards. This home, when you look closely, is finished down to every detail, a reference to that excellence. Learn more about them here: https://tandembc.com/
Fredericksburg’s lots are unique in their shape and spacing, this home sits on one of those historical parcels, and makes use of the long rectangular shape it provides. From the front, the home looks appropriate and proportionate to the neighborhood. It’s clean, yet understated. You only realize it’s actually 3,700+ square feet once you’ve stepped inside. From the front yard, you would never know how expansive it is, and that’s the brilliance of it. The heated pool and hot tub consume the yard and the porch wraps them both luxuriously.
This home is extremely new and lavishly enhanced. Everything from a full security system to SmartSiding and exposed trusses, down to the pulls and pendants. Marble, tile, quartzite, granite, and engineered wood comprise the surfaces. There are so many subtle accents, much like the wall in the master bedroom, or the clever office and flex space. The house is fully automated which includes the lighting, HVAC, sound system, irrigation, garage, pool, and surveillance system. Sunlight pours in through Marvin windows that sparkle with clarity.
Kitchen + Living + Dining:
It all runs together in a distinctive, but connected flow under vaulted ceilings which are accented throughout with site-built wooden trusses. The quartzite island joins the cooking space to the eating area, and the stonework of the full-height masonry fireplace provides balance across the great room. Subtle lighting offsets every detail. The pulls are heavy and durable, the appliances colored by GE to keep the theme going.
The office and flex space are subtly located nearby as well, again, this is about a life that’s done together, so it’s that perfect blend of privacy but still within eyeshot of what’s going on in the main space.
Sleeping + Bathrooms:
The master bedroom is spacious and artistically defined by its accent wall. It is built-in with perfectly proportionate millwork for simplified storage to keep the space decluttered. The adjacent bathroom is a study in white marble and natural light with heated floors throughout.
The kids rooms are spacious, with separate bathrooms in tile finishes. A guest suite has it’s own private bath. The office connected to the main space serves as an optional bedroom as well.
The home has an easily accessed two-car, attached garage and completes the living experience with other unseen amenities like constantly circulated hot water, a fully irrigated landscape with an artificial turf-lawn in the poolside area. The gutter and downspouts drain underground to the street.
Viewing this home:
Because it’s still a primary residence for the family of five that lives here, we request 24 hours advance notice to tour the home. There is no lockbox. We will only show the house to prequalified buyers who can provide a letter or proof of funds. Someone from Harman Ranches will accompany every prospective buyer on their tour of this home.
