Wide Open Spaces in Celina Gives Buyers a Serious Bang for Their Buck

It’s a little bit mountain lodge, a little bit resort, and a whole lot of land and elegance.

Celina is located in North Texas’s sweet spot. And this five-bedroom, 5.1-bathroom home at 5520 Oak Bend Trail in the Twelve Oaks neighborhood perfectly showcases why. The lots are large yet landscaped. There is space to spread out, yet that neighborhood feel that people crave still exists. And the best news? This transitional modern was created in 2018, and so it’s basically new.

Walking into the property feels like coming home immediately due to the warmth and cozy ambiance. Some properties just have that heartwarming feel. Could it be the beautiful custom woodwork throughout? Or perhaps the spanning beams of the accent ceiling? Whatever the case may be, this floorplan is set up to enhance any gathering whether that be in the impressive chef’s kitchen with cabinets galore and every feature imaginable, or the cozy living spaces at every turn.

The primary bedroom, which truly feels like its own wing entirely, has lovely lighting and a bathroom that is fit for a king or queen. The downstairs also has an additional guest room and an impressive game room. The handsome library is perfect for studying or working from home, in addition to three bedrooms ideal for kids and/or a workout room.

And what is the point in a 1.5-acre property if it isn’t perfectly positioned to maximize every inch of the space? The designer of the outdoor space obviously appreciated having fun as there is a gorgeous diving pool with a slide and grotto, six water features, a tanning ledge, and even an attached spa. Putting green? They’ve got it. Built-in Firepit? Absolutely!  Disc frisbee? You better believe it. And all that play definitely will work up an appetite which can be remedied via the full outdoor kitchen and multiple outdoor living spaces and seating options. It’s turnkey entertainment awaiting you just 45 minutes from downtown Dallas.
