This ready-to-move-in Briarwood custom home by Martyn Hammer has all the amenities
What do buyers want today? It’s simple but often hard to find. They want quality construction, a welcoming neighborhood and a house ready to move into. This custom Briarwood home by Martyn Hammer checks every box.
Can we just talk about Martyn Hammer for a minute? The man builds each house as if it were for his own family.
“Martyn has been one of two leading builders at Briarwood over the past decade,” said Compass listing agent TJ Frank of Ellipsis Group. “He was a pioneer in making Briarwood what it is today. This neighborhood has become the pocket corridor for shoppers interested in top private schools and great restaurants.
Frank was so impressed when he saw this house in 2014 that he had Hammer build one for his family.
“We found a lot of stuff and Martyn owned it. He invited us to see this house, we fell in love with the quality and layout and had him build ours. We had the best experience with him.
Designed for working from home
Layout is key after what the world has faced over the past couple of years. This 4,839 square foot Briarwood custom home features a guest bedroom on the first floor. The master suite and two other bedrooms are on the second floor, and there’s plenty of dedicated space for each member of the family.
With a private home office on the first floor and a secondary workspace in the upstairs hallway, two people can easily work without stepping on each other’s toes. The media room upstairs and the secondary living space will delight the whole family. There’s even a private home gym, and we know that’s high on everyone’s wish list.
Open space living has become necessary, and Frank can vouch for this layout as he has the same in his own home.
“It’s such a big factor now,” he said. “Whether you have young children or are empty nests, this is a livable floor plan with a full bar off the living room, sliding doors to the back patio and a heated pool for a year-round use.”
This open plan means no one is locked behind closed kitchen doors anymore. This is the main reason why they have become so beautiful. This one has Carrara white wrapping the countertops, two islands, and gorgeous light fixtures. It also includes a Wolf stove and Thermador refrigerator, beverage cooler and oversized pantry.
Most people don’t know that Hammer loves to cook and has consulted many of the kitchens of top Dallas chefs. It means that you enter a dream thought from all angles.
Briarwood brings them back
Briarwood has become one of those neighborhoods that is hard to leave.
“A piece of your heart stays here because the community is so big,” Frank said. “A volunteer HOA provides a great opportunity for neighbors to come together and an additional security patrol. It’s such a unique community.
Plus, this home and all of its amenities are an absolute value.
“There’s nothing on the market right now at this price per square foot with this quality and a move-in ready pool,” Frank said.
The TVs and security system come with the house, so it’s really plug-and-play. They wanted to make it as easy as possible for a new buyer.
TJ Frank and Johns Greyson have this Briarwood custom home at 4640 Stanford Ave. offered for $1.99 million. An open house is Sunday, October 16 from 1 to 3 p.m.
