Whittier Heights is one of Colleyville's timeless neighborhoods with a grand boulevard and a restored New World Dutch barn that serves as a lakeside pavilion.
Named for 19th century New England nature poet John Greenleaf Whittier, the community enjoys year-round outdoor activities at the city’s 27-acre McPherson Park. It is a great community for entertaining family and friends for the holidays.
Whittier Heights homes have views of heavily treed nature preserves. One of the most recognized residences in the neighborhood is a four-bedroom custom-built home, with stone and brick exterior, ornate moldings, hardwood flooring and a parquet floor beside a stone fireplace.
The two-story home at 409 Eventide Way is being offered by Jessica Bonanno for $700,000.
With 4,409 square feet, the home has extraordinary living spaces that overlook a lushly landscaped backyard. There is a lagoon-style gunite pool, large flagstone patio and outdoor kitchen with a refrigerator and two-way fireplace.
Inside the home has solid eight-foot doors, a study with a beamed ceiling and a wine closet with a decorative iron door.
For the avid cook, the kitchen has granite and natural stone backsplash and stainless-steel appliances that include a double oven and a five-burner gas cooktop. The island with a vegetable sink, a walk-in pantry and a butler's pantry offer extensive storage and food preparation space.
In the first-floor master suite, bay windows surround a sitting area, and a spa-like bath invites relaxation with a separate tub and shower. A guest suite is also on the first level.
