There may no better way to spend a chilly North Texas night than cozied around a fireplace in the comfort of one’s own back yard. Here, just three homes represented by Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty with fire pits and outdoor escapes.
4808 Bill Simmons Road, Colleyville: A contemporary retreat with cues from the great Frank Lloyd Wright, the Colleyville stunner is loaded with smart technology and impeccably built with large timbers and vaulted ceilings. The lavish guest house, resort-style pool, outdoor kitchen with dining space and covered lounge area with focal-point fireplace make this an entertainer’s dream, all on 2.32 acres of meticulously manicured grounds. The home is represented by Laurie Brants and Clay Brants for $3,875,000.
1119 Post Oak Place, Westlake: Inside the guarded golf community of Vaquero, the custom five-bedroom, seven-bath home is sited on more than 1 acre, set back from the street for privacy. Recently remodeled, the 2007 stone-and-brick house envelops a spectacular covered patio with a stone fireplace and an outdoor kitchen with wood-fire pizza oven. The home is represented by Jeff Watson and Cheryl Staley for $3,595,000.
3958 Angus Drive, Fort Worth: A well-maintained and updated 1950s home with an open floor plan and two large living areas, the long, low Ridglea Hills haven is move-in ready.
