Luxury meets lake house at “El Regalo” a posh new Spanish-style listing. Meaning “the gift,” the home sits on a tranquil waterfront East Texas real estate, but has all the amenities you’d expect to find in a high-end, big-city dwelling. El Regalo is situated on Lake Fork, one of the premier trophy bass destinations in the country. The 5,124-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-full-and-two-half-bath home stands on a 0.64-acre lot in a heavily-treed gated community in Yantis, Texas.
The circa-2010 home at 1291 Private Road 5980 is accessed via large iron gates which surround a front courtyard with a fire pit, water feature, the main entrance, and a private casita entrance. Built for entertaining, the home has an open floor plan with a wall of windows affording a spectacular view of the treed grounds and the lake from the open kitchen, the dining area, and the large main living space. French doors in the main living area open to a large outdoor living area with a phantom screen to transition between in and outdoor spaces. The kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances, including a commercial-grade range and two dishwashers; stone counters featuring crushed amethyst; a breakfast bar; and a large pantry with room for an extra refrigerator and a prep island, plus a dumbwaiter that serves the upstairs kitchen.
The first-floor master bedroom suite offers a direct view of the lake; separate vanities, separate shower, a copper soaking tub that overlooks a picturesque courtyard; and a closet with custom built-in shelving and storage, connected to the large laundry room. Also on the first floor is a small study or living area that offers a view of the lake. An architectural spiral staircase leads to a large game room, which can also serve as a bedroom, and has a kitchenette (served by the dumbwaiter) with dishwasher, and a second laundry room. There is an additional en suite-bedroom on the second floor, plus a bonus room suitable for use as an exercise room or office which has a lake view. The completely private casita has a sitting area overlooking a water feature, an outdoor shower, and hot tub. There’s a large exterior storage building, and a five-car garage with a space large enough to accommodate an RV.
The property is located in the gated Land’s End community. Members enjoy use of a pool, clubhouse, the adjacent Links at Lake Fork 18-hole championship golf course, and access to lodging at the Links at Lake Fork for additional guests.
“This luxury retreat is located with proximity to the Metroplex and offers privacy as well as recreational opportunities, whether its golf, trophy bass fishing, bird watching or walking in the woods. This property has it all!” said the representing real estate agent Jenny Woods of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International “It holds appeals to a broad spectrum of buyers. With its layout, it is perfect for retirees that want ample room for their extended family or friends and it will work well for large families that wish to have a second home, given there is a second kitchen and laundry room serving the upstairs.”
El Regalo is listed at $1.499 million.
