Is a secret room on your dream house bucket list? Take a look at this Flower Mound home in the Estates at Tour 18 community. Inside its 6,199 square feet, you’ll find five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. One of those suites is hidden behind a secret entrance that leads up a staircase to the second level, where the bedroom and bathroom sit.
The home at 5809 Southern Hills Drive in Flower Mound was built in 1999 and sits on 1.71 acres. The community has a golf course designed to simulate 18 well-known courses and it also has a clubhouse, said listing agent Sunny Darden of Compass. Typical lot sizes in the neighborhood are between 1.5 and 2.5 acres, according to information provided by the agent.
Darden called the home’s design “California chic,” noting elements like the light fixtures and updated bathroom design in the primary suite.
“It is the perfect place to host parties,” Darden said, noting that the layout of the home includes a large game room that has access to the patio.
The home has 13-foot ceilings throughout, which Darden says makes it feel extra spacious. Most of the home is on one level, with the exception of one of the bedroom suites. The home’s main entrance leads into a living space with a study off to one side. The study has built-in bookcases and decorative paneling along the walls. The fireplace is double-sided, and the large game room sits on the opposite side. The game room is a long space with a built-in bar and multiple windows that overlook the patio. The kitchen has white cabinets, an island at the center and a nearby breakfast area with a fireplace.
The primary suite has a large bedroom with a fireplace and sitting area. The bathroom has a separate bathtub and shower, plus a walk-in closet.
All five bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, Darden said. The home also has a large laundry room and pantry. Outside, there’s a patio with a fireplace and an outdoor cooking area, plus a pool and spa.
The home at 5809 Southern Hills Drive is on the market for $1,950,000. Though the house is in Flower Mound, it’s part of the Argyle school district.
