A Secluded Property Near Every City Convenience in Cedar Hill’s Timbers of Lake Ridge

{{ oneIndex }} / {{ images.length }}


Never has a street been so aptly named as Magic Valley Lane, thanks to the truly magical two-story home situated here. 1819 Magic Valley Lane is located within the sought-after gated community of Timbers of Lake Ridge in Cedar Hill, Texas. Set back from the road on an oversized, one-acre, wooded lot in a breathtaking, park-like setting, this 4-bedroom, 4-bath home is the perfect example of a true retreat. A curved driveway takes you straight to the covered entry that complements the handsome wood and iron front door. Welcome home, indeed.

1819 Magic Valley Lane is a 3,893-square-foot custom home graced with Old World style and carefully placed architectural details throughout. Built in 2006, the home has been meticulously maintained and is full of light and generous living spaces—meaning everyone in the family can easily gather or spread out as they please. Soaring ceilings, triple-run molding, hand-scraped hardwood flooring, and travertine tile punctuate the home’s first floor. A handsome, private study with custom wood built-ins sits to the right as you enter the home where a grand, curved staircase greets you.

The family room, which adjoins the chef’s kitchen, is unarguably the home’s showstopper, with large wooden ceiling beams and a dramatic window offering stunning views of the backyard greenspace that is filled with mature trees. The perfectly framed view is like artwork for the home. The formal dining room offers similar views—a lovely gathering spot for friends and family. The gourmet kitchen features a breakfast nook, large island, granite countertops, double ovens, stainless steel appliances, a walk-in pantry, and a pot filler above the stove. Just off the kitchen is a charming wine bar, complete with a wine cellar and room for a bistro table. The primary bedroom, with an oversized spa bath, laundry chute, and access to an outdoor patio, is situated upstairs, as are the three secondary bedrooms—one with a large mother-in-law suite. Unique to this home is an expansive second-story covered patio. Add a few rocking chairs, and you have a serene place to enjoy your first cup of coffee each day. A large utility room with plenty of counter space and loads of storage throughout round out the home’s offerings.

If the interior of the home doesn’t quite seal the deal, its exterior will. Once outside, you’ll feel like you are near a towering cabin in the woods. A professionally landscaped stone trail beckons you to take relaxing morning and evening walks under the shade of a seemingly endless greenspace of tall trees in a secluded, wooded area. Two separate outdoor patios are perfect for casual entertaining, one adjacent to an Old World-style outdoor kitchen, complete with a built-in grill and warming oven and accented with colorful Mediterranean tile.

1819 Magic Valley Lane, listed for $749,900, is offered by Kevin McDonald, a luxury real estate agent who specializes in the sought-after community of Lake Ridge, which is served by the award-winning Midlothian Independent School District.
