No area of this home has been overlooked. The entry with a wood and stone floor transition, creating a visual boundary, delineates the entry from the homes gracious family spaces. To your left is a pair of French doors leading to a beautiful home office. The room is very generous in scale and painted in a rich deep teal. Soaring ceilings are accented with additional trim and crown treatment. A large-scale fan and light fixture is centered in the space. Shuttered windows on two sides have views to the front yard and a side courtyard, so the room is awash in natural light.
Continuing from the entry find a hall vestibule with a guest coat closet and half bath. The bath is like a jewel box or a gift wrapped in lavish paper. The wallpaper is a delightful surprise, feeling wonderfully formal without being stuffy with rich tones and fun intricate designs. After the initial entry transition, the floor returns to a continuous surface of richly stained medium chestnut hardwood. Next you come to a pair of atrium doors that flood the hall with light. A courtyard between the home office and the kitchen is along the side of the home and wonderfully positioned for a private garden area. Across from the atrium doors is the stairway leading up. Clean lines are beautifully executed in a craftsman style newel post and balustrade. The wood riser trim, handrail, and newel post are accented with wrought iron spindles with offset knuckle detail. A designer carpet is upholstered on the steps for quiet and comfort. At the end of the long entry hall an upper balcony railing defines the transition to the great room area. Fixtures hanging in this space are clean line and subtle with opaque glass bowl for elegant simplicity.
At the end of the entry you reach the great room. This great room makes wonderful use of space! Defining the space but keeping everything connected, the hearth dining room is defined by the two graceful arched entries to the rooms on either side. The hearth dining room is weighted on one end by the floor to ceiling painted brick firebox surround. The light neutral color on the brick wall adds to the openness and continuity of the space and adds lovely texture.
The family room living area to the right is open and airy with floor to ceiling windows to the covered porch and backyard. On the opposite side, across the hearth room is the kitchen.
The kitchen is an impressive and well-appointed stage for any chef to show off their skills. With full wood cabinetry, granite counters, and a full stainless steel appliance suite. The kitchen is more than just pretty to look at, it’s a delight to cook in as well! The double ovens, hooded 5 burner gas range, and deep sink create a wonderful and hardworking heart of the home. A huge center island is a perfect workspace for meal preparation. A large picture window to the backyard is over the sink area and beside the impressive trimmed hood surround there are another two windows for plenty of natural lighting. Three pendants hang above a massive island breakfast bar. The island runs alongside the dining area and serves to separate the workspace from the entertaining area beautifully. Off one corner is a gorgeous hallway access to the outdoor courtyard. The hallway houses the large walk in pantry access and the outer wall is lined with butler pantry cabinets and counterspace for a wonderful coffee bar before coming to the atrium door to the enclosed courtyard.
A wide hall across from the family room area leads to a large under stair guest closet, a bedroom with full on suite bath, and garage access to the two-car garage. The bedroom is in use now as an additional study and painted a dramatic deep navy. The closet and bathroom doors add symmetry to the space evenly at opposite ends of the room. The front facing window, full bath, and own garage access make this a wonderful in-law suite.
Continue past the family room around the corner to a hall that leads to the master suite.

A wall of windows overlooking the yard and gardens, creates a spacious and calming retreat. Enter the master bath to find elegant details of richly stained furniture finish cabinetry, separate vanities, a huge shower is open through an arched hall out of the main bathing area. Dark granite countertops sparkle with white sinks and widespread bronze fixtures. The large framed mirrors over the vanities repeats the luxurious finish.

Both are generously proportioned with ample hanging space and well thought out with shelf areas.
A second bathroom hall passage is access to the laundry room and the back hall to the third garage bay. The laundry is large, with plenty of closed cabinetry storage, counter space, and a deep sink. Cabinets are painted a striking black against soft Demin walls for a lovely transition space into the master suite.

A deep teal on the ceiling, walls, and the crown molding accentuates the column detail of this striking room. Each of the 4 columns has a dimmable sconce for lighting. It’s so pretty it seems a shame to watch movies in the dark!
