Elegant entertaining is easy in this spacious home. Rich warm handscraped floors run throughout the open floor plan.

Set on a large corner lot, this house has a private backyard yet is close to every amenity imaginable, with easy access to 121 and 75. Your family and friends will love your new home!
As you open the large front door you immediately feel at ease in the gracious, welcoming entry where soaring ceilings and abundant natural light are balanced by rich warm hardwood floors. A beautiful staircase draws your eyes upward to the spacious second story, while straight ahead an inviting arched opening provides an enticing glimpse of the living area beyond. To your left, handscraped floors continue through French doors into the study. On your right, the charming formal dining room awaits the laughter and conversation of your dinner party. A short hallway past the dining room leads to the appealing master retreat.
Just off the entry way, French doors in warm wood tones welcome you into the study. Three sets of windows flood the room with light and are finished with plantation shutters that echo the richness of the hardwood floors. Deep baseboards and crown moulding in a soft white provide balance and contrast the neutral taupe walls. Lofty ceilings provide an expansive feel, allowing plenty of room for contemplation and relaxation.
Directly across the entry from the study you find the formal dining room. Here, too, deeply stained hardwood floors contrast with wide baseboards and crown mouldings in a soft white to provide a rich feel. Double windows are framed in complementary white moulding and finished with plantation shutters, while an elegant six-armed chandelier adds beauty. Located just off the kitchen, this dining room makes it easy to host warm and inviting dinner parties.
Continuing down a short hallway past the dining room, warm-toned walls and plush new carpet invite you into your master bedroom retreat. The generous proportions and vaulted ceiling provide ample space for a king-sized bed and sitting area, making this a space you can truly enjoy. Crisp white double doors lead into the master bathroom where a soaker tub is beautifully centered on a large window. The luxuriously tiled shower has a frameless enclosure, keeping this large master suite light and open. Separate sinks mean your mornings will be effortless.
Continuing through the master bath, another set of double doors opens into the expansive master closet. Thoughtfully finished with built-in shelving, this closet has ample room and includes out-of-season hanging space.
Also on the first floor, at the end opposite your master bedroom, is a generously proportioned guest bedroom. Handscraped wood floors, wide white baseboards, and a large sunny window make this an inviting room for your overnight guests. A walk-in closet and hall access to the downstairs bath with shower provide additional comfort.
Located at the center back of the home is your large, open-concept family room, kitchen, and eating area. This well-planned space is designed to be the heart of the home, where conversations flow easily and memories are created.
The gas log fireplace provides the focal point of the family room. Its crisp white mantel and surround perfectly complement the built-in shelving that lines the wall and flanks the fireplace on either side. Plush carpeting underfoot adds warmth and comfort, while on the right, a wall of windows offers views of the peaceful backyard and washes the space in natural light. Soaring ceilings add to the light and open feel.
Across from the living room, granite countertops, tile backsplashes, and warm-toned cabinets add beauty to the hard-working kitchen, while double wall ovens and ample counter space make meal preparation a breeze. A generous walk-in pantry provides storage for food and small appliances, keeping your counters clean and clutter-free. A breakfast bar defines the far edge of the kitchen, separating it from the casual eating area and the family room, yet still maintaining unity with the rest of this open area. This large open space just might become your favorite place in this beautiful home!
Just off the eating area, easy access to the large garage is found through the walk-through laundry room. This well-designed space has granite countertops and closed white upper and lower cabinets for ample storage. An area for hanging clothes adds to the functionality of this room.
Continuing through the laundry room, you find yourself in the spacious three-car garage. High ceilings allow you to add storage above the garage doors, while built-in shelving enables you to keep items off the floor for a tidy space. A generous alcove in the back wall gives you the flexibility to customize the garage to your requirements, whether that means an area for a workbench, extra storage, or another use.
A beautiful staircase leads you up to the second floor, with the stair railing continuing along to form a balcony railing which is open to the entry below. Plush carpeting underfoot provides comfort throughout the game room, media room, and three additional bedrooms on this level.
At the top of the stairs, the game room’s generous size, high ceilings, and ample natural lighting make this a comfortable and flexible space to accommodate any stage of family life. This space is sure to be enjoyed by all!
Along the far wall a door opens into a well-appointed media room, wired for a true theater experience. Luxurious touches include two column accents, crowned with trim and accented with sconces. A handsome wet bar has dark upper cabinets with glass fronts for added interests, while the lower cabinets frame a space for a wine chiller. At the front of the room, a cleverly integrated closet provides ample hidden storage for dvds and other media, and provides effortless access to all media and security system wiring.
There are three generously proportioned bedrooms upstairs. All have large walk-in closets. Bright windows and high ceilings give each a spacious feel. Two bedrooms share Jack-and-Jill access to the wet areas, with a large vanity and ample storage attached to each bedroom. The third bedroom has hall access to the full bath that is shared with the common areas.
This home is warm and welcoming with a stone and brick façade. Varying roof heights add interest. Shrubberies planted along the front provide greenery year-round, and a stately live oak anchors the property. A sidewalk path leads your guests under an arched entry to the inviting porch where your front door opens to welcome them in.
In back of the house, and the extended patio area is ready to entertain with a built-in grill and wiring for outdoor speakers. The beautifully landscaped backyard includes a water feature and several mature trees for shade. To the left, the generous side yard houses a convenient storage shed and a garden area. A board on board fence provides privacy, making this peaceful backyard your own private retreat.
