What We Love About Our Home
“We love to have family and friends over to watch football, eat and celebrate holidays. I have truly enjoyed the living/kitchen area where we have all gathered comfortably. Our kids and their friends have taken full advantage of the pool, hot tub. firepit and all of the space the yard provides. When you are outside, you forget that you are in city limits and feel as though you are away from the stress of city life.”
Tucked away at the end of a quiet cul de sac, this home boasts quality, location and character. Exquisitely renovated, luxurious touches are everywhere, from hardwood floors to architectural ceilings to marble countertops in the kitchen. A first floor guest room keeps guests of all ages comfortable, while numerous windows provide a visual connection with your backyard oasis and blur the lines of indoor and outdoor living. Located just minutes from 121 and 75, this perfectly-situated home is close to all amenities while maintaining a tranquil country feel.
The entrance to this gracious home is airy and impressive, with soaring ceilings and plenty of natural light. Windows along the back wall frame views of your beautiful pool and provide a strong connection to the outdoors. To your left, the formal living room welcomes you with the warm glow of a fire, while to your right, just past an elegant staircase, the kitchen and large gathering room await.
Also to your right is a sophisticated and versatile dining room or study, with wainscoting and deep crown molding finished in a crisp white. This contrasts beautifully with the rich warm tones of the scraped hardwood floor that extends into the kitchen and gathering room beyond. A bay wall of front-facing windows fills the room with light. Striking barn doors combine both beauty and function, allowing this room to serve your needs as either a gracious dining room, open to the kitchen, or as a polished and private study.
The primary living area of this home is the expansive, open space containing your kitchen, gathering room, and eating area. Impeccably updated, the kitchen is defined by a large island with seating along one side. Breathtaking Carrara marble countertops in a leathered finish are highlighted by gorgeous pendant lights and accented by furniture-finish cabinetry in crisp white. Miles of counter space provide plenty of room for assistant chefs to help with meal preparations, while a deep walk-in pantry keeps everything you need close at hand. A small central island provides additional storage. Stainless appliances, double wall ovens, and a deep farmhouse sink ensure that this kitchen is as hardworking as it is stunning.
Across from the kitchen, the gathering room has a dramatic cathedral ceiling accented by an exposed beam. The warm brown tones of the beam echo the beautiful hardwood flooring that unifies this open space, creating a sense of continuity. The focal point of this great room is a gorgeous fireplace, visible from both the kitchen and eating area. Faced in brick and flanked by attractive cabinetry on either side, this fireplace makes an impressive statement. A wet bar makes entertaining a breeze, and windows along the left wall keep the space light and offer views of your resort-style pool.
Also part of this open space is your casual eating area. Natural light from the bay windows accents the architectural lines of the beautiful recessed ceiling and highlights the delightful Regina Andrew chandelier that is centered in the space. There is ample room for a table large enough to accommodate both family and treasured friends. Sophisticated yet comfortable, this incredible open space is the perfect backdrop for both large scale entertaining and intimate family gatherings.
To the left of the entry way, hand scraped hardwood floors continue into your formal living room, where your fireplace provides a lovely focal point centered between stately white columns. A combination of closed and open cabinetry provides storage and display space for treasured items. A bay wall of windows is trimmed in white plantation shutters and offers a cozy area for additional seating. Deep crown molding and a charming Regina Andrew chandelier add to the luxurious feel of your formal living room.
Continuing past the living room you will find the graciously-sized master retreat. This large, spacious room features multiple windows for ample natural light, yet maintains privacy with attractive plantation shutters. The sitting area overlooks the pool and is a lovely place to enjoy a quiet book or cup of tea. Walls topped with crown molding draw your eye upward to a beautifully recessed and elegantly finished tray ceiling. Double doors lead to your resort-style master bath.
Peaceful and serene, your master bath is truly a welcoming sight. A high cathedral ceiling is accented by an exposed beam that runs the length of the bath and closet, adding an expansive and luxurious feel to this space. Tumbled natural stone frames a deep soaker tub centered under a side-facing window. The frameless shower allows the beauty of natural stone tile to shine, while separate vanities under framed mirrors are surrounded by sumptuous white furniture-finish cabinetry. Double doors lead to a large master closet with enough room for a small table or center stack of drawers. A high window with leaded glass detail adds elegance and allows warm natural light into the closet.
Between the formal living room and the master suite you will find a guest bedroom that shares hall access to a full bathroom. Located on the first floor, this elegantly-appointed bedroom welcomes your guests with crown molding and a deep reach-in closet, ensuring their comfort. The bathroom is both beautiful and functional, with a granite-topped vanity and fully tiled walk in shower. A high window brightens the space while maintaining privacy.
On the opposite side of the house, just past the eating area, is your home’s pool bath. A frameless shower showcases stunning Carrara marble tile, while a deep vessel sink sits atop a gorgeous vanity. Another Regina Andrews chandelier sparkles overhead. An exterior door makes this luxurious space convenient to your outdoor living area.
Opposite the pool bath is a large laundry room. Thoughtfully appointed, this room has ample closed cabinetry and a utility sink for tackling the needs of a busy family. A side-facing window fills the space with natural light, and a door keeps everything quiet and out of sight.
Between the pool bath and laundry room, a door provides access to your large three-car garage.
An elegant staircase, located just off the entry, leads to the second floor. Here you will find the game room and two secondary bedrooms.
To the right of the stairs, you will find a spacious bedroom with a private full bath. A cathedral ceiling with exposed beam and a bay wall of windows add elegance and grace to this space.
To the left of the stairway, a hall leads to the game room and another bedroom beyond. The hall is light and airy, open to below on one side and having a wall of windows along other. These windows along the back of the house provide wonderful views of your backyard oasis.
Continuing down the hall you arrive in your game room. This space is also light and open, with windows on two walls and another open to the entry way below. A game table tucks beautifully into the bay window space, leaving the center available for seating or a pool table. White cabinetry lines one wall, offering plenty of storage, and a small under-cabinet refrigerator keeps cold beverages handy. A recessed vaulted ceiling with exposed beams is framed in deep crown, adding elegance to this versatile space. In the hall, a nearby exterior door leads to a balcony that overlooks the pool. Large enough to accommodate a table and chairs, the balcony allows the fun of the game room to continue outside.
Beyond the game room is your home’s other secondary bedroom. This bedroom also has a cathedral ceiling with exposed beam, and a beautiful arched window framed in crisp white and trimmed with plantation shutters. A door along one wall leads to the adjoining private bath with shower, walk in closet, and skylight.
Twin brick pillars topped with lanterns mark the entrance to your impressive and stately home. Mature trees shade your elegant circular drive, while water trickles invitingly from the fountain feature in the center of the drive. To the right of your home, a firepit waits enticingly for cooler evenings, along with a detached covered patio for delightful al fresco dining on the weekends.
The fully-fenced backyard boasts a stunning outdoor oasis. The pool and spa is surrounded by gorgeous stone decking and is fully landscaped.

Flagstone paths lead beyond pool to a large grassy area, perfect for a trampoline and any other outdoor pursuits. Mature trees provide beauty and shade in your own private park-like setting. With stunning, custom-crafted details both inside and out, this home is the perfect luxurious retreat for your family.
