Interiors boast a classic repeated arched opening theme, master down, open concept floorplan, and generously proportioned rooms. This 2-story home has beautiful hardwood floors, designer lighting fixtures, upscale carpeting, decorator paint and trim, and many on trend finishes.

Through the generously scaled front door, you enter a large welcoming entry. The entry has a soaring two-story ceiling and features a pediment transom over the door and an alcove with a window at the second level. Cappuccino brown, hand scraped, hardwood floors are complimented by high painted baseboards, making a distinguished impression. Walls are coated in neutral designer colors are topped with crown molding, complimenting the look. The home has plantation shutters and wood blinds for privacy and a tailored finished look. The modern lighting and mixed elements of wrought iron, crystal, wood atop a warm stained wood floor, crisp painted cabinetry, soaring ceilings and eyebrow arch openings sets the perfect stage for living in modern casual elegance.
To your left, the study with French doors is cozy and dramatic with picture frame panel detailing, on trend wall color, and a charming wallpaper inset. The study has a floor to ceiling front facing window.
Standing in the entry, the stair and railing above frames the boundaries of the welcoming foyer and front room. At this intersection, hall alcoves flank either side of the entry and offer guest coat storage, full bath, and a bedroom to your right with the spacious linen area and laundry room to your left.
Continuing through the entry, a gracefully curved stair is before you. The stair has wood trimmed step and risers, with square clean line newel posts and balusters, a warm chestnut handrail, and iron spindles with graduated knuckles. Steps are upholstered with designer carpeting for comfort and quiet. A dramatic 3 tier chandelier hangs above, giving just the right nod to the classic past with the addition of crystal mixed into the body in a perfectly modern way.
Beyond the stair, on the right side of the entry, is the large formal dining room. Deep and dramatic teal walls set the stage for gatherings. Another weighty dramatic fixture is perfectly placed here, allowing the glass light shades to shimmer like candlelight in the evenings. A double door opening to the kitchen allows for ease of serving, and eliminates the clamor of busy kitchen work in the intimate dining room. Three large windows line the back wall and overlook the side yard of the home. The painted ceiling with staggered tray treatment adds to the formality of the room without being stuffy. The entry ends in a niched wall creating a visual boundary separating the entry from the family spaces. The large open concept family room, kitchen, and breakfast room are at the back of the home.
The kitchen is a deep U- shape along one end of the home with a large centered island with breakfast bar. The island with bar top seating is painted in a creamy grey and makes a nice contrast against the white cabinetry of the surrounding kitchen. Subway tiles in the backsplash add texture and pattern set in a herringbone layout. An inset accent of crackle glass mosaic tile is above the range for a cheerful splash of color. This is a showpiece chef’s kitchen, with 4 burner gas range, stainless luxury appliance suite, and gorgeous granite countertops. The kitchen is designed to work hard beautifully.
The breakfast area is sandwiched lengthwise between kitchen and the family room, defined by walls with large arched openings to create a visual boundary while keeping the flow connected. A wonderful on-trend beaded chandelier hangs over the table space giving a relaxed elegance to the space. An end wall of built in cabinetry with integrated wine bottle storage makes a wonderful and easy sideboard. This breakfast room is well suited for a relaxed dinner party.
The family room at the far side has a two story floor to ceiling bank of windows, which makes a bold and linear statement. The fireplace is set angled into a corner for enjoyment from anywhere in the great room space. The fireplace is made of Granbury chopped masonry with an integrated curved hearth. Topped with a substantial bold mantel and clean line picture frame panel detail above, the fireplace continues the clean and linear statement of the space. Between the family room and breakfast area is a door to the covered patio area outside.
The master suite is on the first floor to the back of the home. Entering from behind the fireplace through a hall, the master bedroom is as spacious as it is relaxing. Tall windows flood the designer spa blue wall color with soft filtered natural light. The master bath is a spa retreat with separate his and her vanities, light crema marafil countertops, under mount sinks, and widespread vanity fixtures. The soaking tub is set in an integrated tile deck surround and has a large shuttered window above. The soft sage wall color is relaxing and nods to the natural setting. Situated in the corner beside the tub a large glass surround highlights the tile and mosaic border accent in the shower.
The spacious master closet is shared with plenty of room for two. Hanging and shelf space is generous with a smart access to the laundry area. The laundry has loads of closed cabinetry and counterspace for folding.
From the entry take the hall to the right side of the home to find the downstairs bedroom suite. The bedroom is elegant and cozy, with windows to the front yard. A spacious walk in closet, and hall access to the downstairs full bath, create a space that is great for a nursery, in-law, or guest suite.
Ascending the stairs, you find three more bedrooms and a beautiful modern media room. The media has a raised platform to create multi-level seating for an unobstructed view. A wall of built-in cabinetry smartly lines a side of the room to surround the screen. The built-ins house closed cabinet game storage, entertainment electronics, and lovely open display shelving. The handsome style paired with cool slate paint color and bold geometric carpeting make a sophisticated space for the family to enjoy.
There are three very generously proportioned bedrooms upstairs. The bedrooms each have big open windows for natural light and generous walk in closets. Two of the bedrooms share a Jack and Jill shared access to the wet room, each with its own separate vanity areas attached to the bedroom. The third upper room has an on-suite bath.
Brick chop stone ledger is topped with classic red brown brick and cedar shutters. The home has multiple roof peaks for a stately and warm first impression. A wide side ally entry drive leads to the 3-car garage. The driveway and yard is fenced in a way that is perfectly suited to add an automated gate at the driveways end to give your family added security and hardscape play space. From the street front and sidewalk there is a wide walkway that leads to the front door. Landscaped foundation plantings along the house are mature plantings of evergreen shrubs and deciduous plantings. The backyard is a garden retreat. Covered patio, cedar beams and stone grill station are set atop a stamped concrete patio for 3 season outdoor enjoyment! The backdrop of the greenbelt and walking trails creates a lush environment.
