Imagine a nice, modern, new, gorgeous, not gigantic, spacious for a nice family, great size for a young couple, 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home that has a 3 CAR GARAGE!!!! I couldn't believe it when I was looking at the specifications. This home is great!! I love the brick/stone combination for the exterior, it pairs so nicely. This home is practically brand new, built in 2011. It looks like it should be the model home. The tile floors match perfectly with the gorgeous cabinetry. And off of the side of the kitchen is the dining room that our sellers have actually turned into a nice office/TV room. It can make for a great Mother in Law suite too ; ) The back yard is an open canvas for those green thumbs that is¬†already equipped with a¬†sprinkler system. Imagine…

Our Listing 13415 Demeter is in the Olympia community of Universal City. Sits nestled in the back away from the noise but still close to all the shopping and dining in the Forum. I LOVE shopping in the forum. It has all the perfect stores that are actually affordable to shop at. It has close access to IH 35 and Loop 1604 giving you a quick commute to work and fun.

You can search and search for that one home that will meet all your family's needs, but sometimes it will be missing that one piece that you really wanted... a home with its own character. This home has everything anyone could want or need in beautiful Champions Ridge of Stone Oak. One of my favorite aspects is this home isn't sitting just off the curb. The driveway goes up and curves around. So the home itself kind of sits up on an elevation hiding it from the street. The front of this home is beautiful as you can tell from the photos! When you walk in the front door the first impression you get is from a set of grand mediterranean style pillars in the entry way of the living room leading you to the floor to ceiling windows over looking the
