Starting with the custom Brazilian mahogany doors, and moving on to a hundred thousand in upgrades in 2010 and 2011, this Woodbridge single family home is a sleek new entry inside the loop. Backing up to Birdsong Park in a cul de sac near North Lake, the home was attracting a lot of visitors with its first open house this past weekend.

Close up: Moving up the brick walkway and entering wrought iron gates amidst perfectly trimmed landscaping brings you to the double doors of Brazilian mahogany.

The living room with black galaxy granite fireplace, family room, and large dining room opening to an atrium all blend beautifully. Custom molding, cathedral ceilings and subtle colors with dramatic accents provide the finish.
