In the grand foyer lies a spectacular staircase which leads to the basement and the second floor. To the left is a temperature-controlled wine cellar, that is exposed to showcase its contents. Also on the main floor is two living rooms, a dining room, and a gourmet kitchen. Upstairs lies four bedrooms, including the master suite, which over overlooks the pool area and even has exclusive access. The master has a linear glass fireplace and a master bath complete with a vessel bathtub surrounded by a cherry blossom art panel, and a huge walk-in closet.
Those Texas summers are hot, so the house wouldnt be complete if it didnt have an infinity pool. The outside also has a grill room foryou guessed it, grilling! The room also has an A/C and beer fridge. Its an outdoor space perfect for entertaining! And when the nights start to get chilly, Spieth can get warm by his gorgeous glass-covered fire pit.
