Elm Creek estate, on a cul de sac, Ranch style home with One Owner.....who is a piece of Texas History. The home is also a piece of Hollywood history.......intrigued?? Read on....... Don and Frances Strange of the SA/Welfare, Don Strange Ranch, designed and built their dream home in 1979! Renowned Elm Creek builder Wayne Jaroszewski created a home open and inviting for entertaining (and probably a little barbecue), while keeping the essence of privacy and coziness for their family life. Upon walking through the front door, you are greeted by a 24 foot, arched wall of windows, highlighted by vaulted ceilings, each allowing in all the natural lighting. No other external lighting needed!! The windows flank each side of the fireplace and make for a "Wow" moment the minute you enter the home! Don Strange was known for his barbecue and catering, but Frances did the family cooking in the large, open concept kitchen. Palmer Todd cabinets, Thermador double ovens, Wolf gas cook top, separate refrigerator and freezer Sub-Zero built-ins and a unique and large center island, all connected to a small powder room, mud room and oversized utility room.....making this a Chef's dream kitchen for culinary delights and family gatherings....and we know guests and family always end up in the kitchen!!! The island has a beautiful movement granite accented by a suspended glass counter top for your casual dining. The kitchen opens to an expansive dining room with 12 foot cathedral ceiling, wet bar and several doors to the outside patios. Now here is the Hollywood Part.....this home was used for the filming of the movie, "Lost Angels" in 1989. Living area and primary suite were also used in the film.....but not as exciting as a car in the pool!! When it came time to move outside and enjoy, the home was created with a covered patio for dining, large pool, separate private patio outside of the primary bedroom and situated where all faces a small greenbelt. The large, 9 ft. depth pool has many surrounding decks and areas for lounging and gathering in the outdoor space....but don't worry, 2 side yards are ample size for your four-legged children. The covered patio directly outside the kitchen and dining room has exposed beams, built in grill and large eating and lounging area. The outdoor privacy is accented by the home situated on a small greenbelt and privacy fencing. You can see why Hollywood thought this was this perfect home for their film! A copy of the movie will convey with home purchase!! First floor living has no steps. The primary suite is large with outdoor access to its own private patio. Opposite this suite and the entrance of the home, is a "flex" room, currently used as a den/office. This room is easily transferred into a full office or another dining area....or keep it as a downstairs den. Upstairs you have another den/game room, 3 guest rooms and 2 guest bathrooms. Obviously, details are abounding.....this home is a must see. Most of the home has had updates through the years or come put your own vision on this beautiful estate.
