Warm scraped hardwoods, wide baseboards, elegant plantation shutters, and loads of natural light create a welcoming atmosphere in this gorgeous two-story home. The open floor plan provides an easy flow between the living room, kitchen, and breakfast area while the fantastic patio and outdoor kitchen extend your entertaining space into your back yard. Both the secluded master suite and private guest bedroom are on the first floor, with the game room, media room, and secondary bedrooms upstairs. Beautifully maintained, this home also features Nest thermostats, and a large study with gorgeous built-ins.
Hardwood floors, tall arches, and soaring ceilings create a warm and spacious feel as you enter this home. Abundant natural light spills into the entry through the textured glass of your gorgeous front door and through windows of the adjacent rooms. A beautiful stair edged in hardwood draws your eyes up to the second floor, and straight ahead a back wall of windows offers glimpses of your fantastic outdoor living area. Rich scraped hardwood floors extend throughout the main living spaces, inviting you further into this home.
To your left, French doors open into a study with a wall of beautiful cabinetry that includes a built-in desk. Open shelving is backed with beadboard in a darker stain to add depth and interest. Stacked crown moulding frames the vaulted ceiling, while the large front window, gracefully arched and dressed with plantation shutters, spills light into the room. Generous proportions easily allow for a table or an additional desk in this inspiring space.
Continuing past the study, your formal dining room is framed by a sweeping arched entry. Tall side windows create a bright and inviting atmosphere and stacked crown molding frames the room for a sophisticated feel. Double doors lead to your adjacent kitchen, making it easy to enjoy a delicious meal with friends.
At the back of your home, your main living area is an open space with an easy flow between the living room, kitchen, and breakfast area. Windows along the back wall keep these spaces bright and welcoming while offering a connection with your incredible outdoor patio. Hardwood floors continue from the hall into your living room, where your stone fireplace sits atop a raised hearth so that all can enjoy the warm glow of the fire. A heavy wood mantel and crown molding echo the rich tones of the floor for a cohesive look. To the left of the fireplace, a large recess offers the perfect spot for cabinetry or built-ins to house your entertainment system and display the pictures and pieces that make your home your own.
Facing the living room, your kitchen is open to the living area and defined by a sweeping arch and a transition to large-format tile floors. Warm wood cabinets around the perimeter of the kitchen offer ample storage and a generous amount of counter space, including casual seating at peninsula island. A large central island in a darker stain is topped with matching granite and accented with two lovely pendant lights above. Your stainless appliance suite includes double wall ovens and a 5-burner gas cooktop. Both the reach-in pantry and the dining room are adjacent to the kitchen for convenience.
On the other side of your kitchen’s peninsula island, your breakfast area is bright and cheerful with windows on two walls and a glass door that leads to your patio. Warm sunlight spills into this space, and a beautiful chandelier defines your table area.
Back in your living room, an arch to the right of the fireplace leads to a private wing of your home that contains your master suite, the guest bedroom and bathroom, and garage access. Quiet and secluded in the corner of your home, the generous proportions of your restful master bedroom easily accommodate a king-sized bed and night tables while still leaving plenty of room for a sitting area that overlooks the front yard. A large curved window and lofty vaulted ceilings add to the sense of spacious serenity in this master suite.
This peaceful atmosphere continues through double doors into your spa-inspired master bath, where your jetted tub and walk-in shower are framed by a graceful arch. A large side window splashes natural light into the room, and separate vanities offer each of you your own space for relaxed morning routines. A linen closet keeps extra supplies handy, and another door opens to a huge master closet with built-in shelving and hanging storage that takes full advantage of the tall ceilings to offer a third row for out-of-season storage.
Also situated in this wing of your home is your first-floor guest bedroom and bath. This quiet bedroom is spacious and comfortable, with high ceilings, soft carpet, and a large front window that overlooks the front porch. A roomy closet easily stores your guests’ belongings. Adjacent to the bedroom is a full bath beautifully finished with a tiled tub and a furniture-style vanity with a travertine top. A framed oval mirror, fixtures in oil-rubbed bronze, and warm tones create a space that is attractive and welcoming for all your guests.
Your laundry room is conveniently situated on the first floor, just off the kitchen. Cabinets offer closed storage to keep your laundry room free of clutter. A garment bar above the dryer is ready for freshly laundered clothes, and out-of-season hanging storage makes thoughtful use of the vertical space provided by tall ceilings.
Finally, your 3-car tandem garage also enters your home on the first floor. Your garage is brightly lit with a fully finished epoxy floor to keep it neat and clean. A double bay door offers easy access to parking spaces. Tall ceilings offer the option of overhead storage to maximize this well-planned space.
Your stair to the second floor is elegantly finished with carpeted tread and hardwood edges. Warm wood handrails and iron balusters lend an open yet classic feel as you curve up and over the front hall. From the landing you overlook the entry and the large display ledge above the front door. Toward the back of your home, your game room lies before you with your media room and two bedrooms to the right. A third bedroom is across the game room to your left.
In the game room a wall of windows along the back floods this space with light and overlooks the yard. Roomy proportions offer multiple options for configuring this area to meet your family’s needs. Plush carpet and neutral paint create a comfortable and spacious feel.
Moving through the game room, you find a set of double doors in the back corner that open to your media room with rich paint and tall ceilings. Wall columns are finished with crown moulding and fitted with wall sconces for soft light. Wired for surround sound, this room is ready for the perfect movie night with friends and family.
Your home’s secondary bedrooms are also situated on the second floor, with two located on one side of the game room and one on the other. All three bedrooms are generously proportioned with large closets, tall ceilings, and loads of natural light. Soft carpet and ceiling fans make these rooms extremely comfortable. The rooms on the right side of the game room each have a private vanity and share between them a wet area with a tub tiled in crisp clean white. The front bedroom also has a linen closet and access to attic storage. On the opposite side of your home, the remaining bedroom has hall access to a full bath that is shared with the game room. Oil-rubbed bronze fixtures add warmth to a clean and sparkling space that includes a tiled tub. Just outside the bathroom, a large closet is ready to store either linens or games and equipment for the game room. A small door at the back of the closet leads to more attic storage.
Natural stone and warm brick are perfectly accented by richly stained shutters and corbels to give this home loads of curb appeal. Your beautiful front door with textured glass and iron grille is highlighted by an arch with softly glowing lanterns on either side. A second arch frames your welcoming front porch, where a bench or porch swing offers a quiet place to sit and watch the world go by. From the sidewalk an aggregate path leads guests through a lush front lawn and attractive foundation plantings that extend a charming invitation with a variety of colors, heights, and textures.
Your backyard is fully fenced with beautiful landscaping around the perimeter to soften the fence line and make your yard feel like a private garden. Your extended patio, stamped and stained in a flagstone pattern, extends your living space to include an outdoor dining room as well as an outdoor living room. A richly stained pergola highlights your fantastic outdoor kitchen with JennAir grill, electrical outlets, and loads of counter space in addition to bar seating. Wired for an outdoor tv, the dining area also has a ceiling fan to keep air moving on warmer days. Windows along the back of your home offer a visual connection between your indoor and outdoor spaces, and a door between the patio and your indoor kitchen offers a smooth flow for easy entertaining.
