We caught wind of this beauty last week, but we saved it for the Fourth of July because it is so gorgeous it will make you see stars! Not only that, but this lovely low-maintenance patio home will be a great house to check out before you head to the Star Spangled Spectacular at Firewheel Town Center, where the fireworks show starts at 9:15 p.m.

But the insides of this stylish home right off of Firewheel Golf Park are straight out of Restoration Hardware, which, incidentally, is having a huge sale, so you can get this look in your own home if you’re not quite ready to move. However, if you’re looking for high style and low maintenance, this bud’s for you.


4416 Thunder Front

Talk about a straight-up bargain! This remodeled ranch was built in 1968 and has a whole new lease on life thanks to an amazing renovation. At 4416 Thunder Road you’ll find the perfect combination of curb appeal, layout, upgrades, landscaping, and location for just $445,000.

Listed by Keller Williams agent Brandon Hawkins, this home is really a great family property with some luxurious finishes you’d usually find in homes priced in the $600s and $700s. The gorgeous hardwood floors and tile, for one, are fabulous touches that make the vaulted ceilings in the living areas feel that much higher. It also emphasizes the open floor plan, which allows you to see clear across the home and through the huge glass doors to the pool and spa in the backyard.

With more than 2,700 square feet of space, you’ll find this home a great size for entertaining family and friends for Christmas, too, and I can just imagine what this family room would look like with a huge tree lit up and covered in baubles for the holidays.

4416 Thunder Kitchen 4416 Thunder Laundry Mudroom

The kitchen is gorgeous, too, with white cabinets, granite counters, a Viking cooktop and venthood, stainless steel double ovens, and a spacious eat-in area. The neutral palette is almost too neutral, though. I am really wanting a bit of personality here, but it will definitely appeal to someone who has a checklist of features for their future kitchen.

4416 Thunder Master 4416 Thunder Master Bath

There are three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, with the master clocking in at a sizable 20×13. That’s plenty of room to make this bedroom into a retreat with a king-sized bed and perhaps a chaise lounge and armchair so you can relax and perhaps watch something besides football when the relatives come by to visit.

The master bath is fabulous, with tons of stone and dual vanities and a frameless glass shower. It’s a typical five-piece bath, but I do love the huge window over the jetted tub, the closet access, and all of the storage, which takes up pretty much an entire wall. Very smart and extremely attractive.

4416 Thunder Backyard

The backyard is impressive, too, with a built-in grilling area, a beautiful organic-shaped pool with spa, and a lovely stone patio surrounding the pool. The landscaping is gorgeous, too, with a Japanese maple and crape myrtles that will provide seasonal color, and a great little lawn for enjoying, too.

This home is definitely a deal worthy of Black Friday, that’s for sure!
