Odessa Under $1M: Upgrade Thanksgiving Dinner with This Candlelight Drive Home

7 Candlelight Drive in Odessa is currently listed for $995,000 by Janette Fischer of J Fischer Real Estate.

There are a few things we know to be true. Southerner’s love their kitchens; breaking out a family recipe is both an art, and often shrouded in secrecy; and hosting company for Thanksgiving almost always ends up served with a side dish of good old-fashioned gossip.

With all this in mind, we went on the hunt for a perfect home to do all three. What we found is one Odessa custom build that is as unforgettable as your most memorable Thanksgiving feast.

First, let’s begin with the most important room of the house – the kitchen. Whether you’re a self-proclaimed foodie, a novice chef, or the guy/gal who has the caterer on speed dial, this kitchen is for you.

Made for cooking and serving family meals with ease, this French Country kitchen is an entertainer’s dream! Pristine and elegant, rich and expansive, traditional yet modern, it has all the high-end upgrades we’ve come to expect from a million-dollar home.

From the stunning granite counters and center island to the six-burner range, brick and stone accents, custom cabinets, and stainless-steel appliances, this is a kitchen that makes us actually want to cook.

Just imagine welcoming family and friends through the warm and inviting entry featuring a wrought iron and alder wood staircase – perfect for decorating during the holidays.

Soaring beamed ceilings and gorgeous appointments in the great room are sure to impress, met by a cozy brick and limestone fireplace and ample lounge seating that says, “come on in and stay a while.”

When the dinner bell rings, nothing makes meal service more effortless than a well-equipped butler’s pantry and this is just right. Gather everyone in the spacious formal dining for the turkey carving, and enjoy each other’s company while breaking bread. This room is all about sharing and making memories around the table.

And with an oversized media room, plus an expansive covered patio with fenced backyard, there is no shortage of space for after dinner drinks and conversation.

For a luxurious end to the day, your company will appreciate their private and comfortable guest suites, while you enjoy the tranquil master suite.

Curl up by the fireplace, or indulge in the designer spa-bath – this master suite is a well-deserved escape, after all, that cooking and perfect place to kick up your feet and unwind.

Oh and there’s a giant walk-in closet with shelving and a dressing island. You’re welcome.

For less than a million, this exceptional French Country Manor in Odessa’s premiere luxury enclave is perfect for a growing family, or the consummate entertainer.


A handsome study, circle drive with three-car garage, sprinkler system, and landscaped lot are just a few added bonuses this home affords. The season of thankfulness is upon us. What better way to elevate your Thanksgiving feast than at 7 Candlelight Drive?
