New Construction in the Bend
One of my frustrations with developers who come into Memorial Bend is their disregard for the character of our unique neighborhood. Build from 1955-1959, Memorial Bend has an eclectic architectural mix of predominantly one-story ranch and mid-century modern houses. Most homes are low, rambling and well-proportioned to each other. Mature trees and lushness define the look of the neighborhood with enough elbow room for neighbors to "breathe".
Yet, here comes another developer ready to plop down a house that will look utterly out of place in Memorial Bend that, given the description, will probably require scraping of trees and zero lot line construction. Get ready for a white elephant to pop up on Gretel:
Elegant new construction by Metropolitan Custom Homes in Memorial Bend. Brick & Stucco exterior w/grand 2-story foyer,French doors leading into a cathedral ceiling study& formal dining with butlers pantry & wet bar. Chef's kitchen w/granite,curved island & ss appliances. Wonderful great room w/fireplace,built-ins & French doors leading to the veranda. Master down w/granite bath. Media/bedroom#5 + gameroom up. Hardwood & Travertine floors down,mud rm w/built-in lockers&computer alcove & 3/4 bedrm up.
Say goodbye to this...
...and hello to this?
