Frank DeGroot’s Revisited Shoalmont Garden of Dreams on Finley Dr

Nestled on the quiet Shoalmont street of Finley Drive, you may have never suspected what’s behind the restored original facade of 4913 Finley Drive.  This home, now sold twice by Aria, was meticulously restored in 2010 while also receiving tasteful updates that we think the home’s original architect (and Shoalmont neighbor), Frank DeGroot, would appreciate.

The home’s original Arkansas ledge stone fireplace and planter was carefully soda blasted for 2 days to uncover it’s natural colors buried beneath coats of enamel.  The home’s original bathrooms, which had a mixture of original and cheap replacement tiles, received full retro renovations.  The kitchen was expanded into a beautiful, highly functional space which won the HBA’s Kitchen Remodel of the Year.  Original features were preserved where they could be along with practical and earth-loving features from tankless water heaters to dual flush high efficiency commodes.  A secondary bedroom received an addition, creating a modern master suite complete with dual vanities, a walk-in shower, and dream closet overlooking the property’s best kept secret.  The home’s backyard garden was a former owner’s pride-enjoy.  A peaceful pond, garden rooms each with their own gorgeous features, and even peach trees behind a path lined with cypress trees created a hidden oasis.

This home has also been featured on ApartmentTherapy.com & PBS’s Central Texas Gardener.
