Through the impressive solid wood door, you enter a large welcoming entry open to front formals and an impressive study. The entry has a soaring two-story ceiling and features a window high above at the second level. A weighty bowl fixture, with dark bronze and opaque alabaster glass, illuminates the space. Warm cream lines the walls, trimmed in crisp white 6 inch baseboards and substantial three phase crown molding. Beautifully finished hardwood floors are stained in a warm chestnut brown. The handsome staircase is on the left with curved turned wooden handrails, substantial square newel post, and full wood trim lining designer carpet risers. The spindles make a statement in dramatic black wrought iron with alternating spaced knuckles.
To your left through a double French door is the study. The room is spacious with high vaulted ceilings. Directly opposite the French door is a dramatic and elegant back wall of built-in bookshelves. The furniture finish shelves are heavily trimmed, detailed with fluted sides, arched tops, and have upper and console lighting. An integrated wood counter area with closed cabinetry storage below houses essentials and looks sharp doing it! A large arched window faces the front yard. Front windows of the home are tailored and classic in wide plank white plantation shutters.
Opposite the study and stair wall is the formal living and dining rooms. Each of the rooms are defined by a wide arched entry. The living room is the first room in the large open space. With deep crown, an expansive front window, generous proportions, and designer carpeting, the room is a gracious spot to entertain and is connected to the rest of the home. Another large arched opening connects the living to dining areas.
The dining room is large and a double tier 9 light chandelier is hung over the table space. The heavy crown continues to line the ceilings. A generous front facing arched window floods the space in natural light. A double door opens from the dining room to the kitchen.
At the end of the entry, the arched opening is repeated in a barreled ceiling passageway to the family room area. A large closet is in this space under the stairs.
Arriving first in the family room you’ll notice the beautiful floor to ceiling fireplace of flag stone. The fireplace has a curved integrated hearth, wood mantel shelf, and stained crown to trim and complete the warm rustic look. Windows to the outdoor patio area are adorned with plantation shutters and stretch along the entire back wall for views to the spacious backyard. Beside the fireplace is a furniture finish cabinetry built-in entertainment area. The cabinet has closed storage below and retractable folding doors to enclose the TV screen when not in use. A ceiling fan with bowl shade is centered to keep the air moving and comfortable. The living area is beautifully open to the kitchen and breakfast room through an arched opening wall detail.
In the kitchen, custom furniture finish cabinetry stained in a deep warm chestnut is impressive and heavily crowned. The counters are a light creamy granite. The backsplash is a random set honed travertine mosaic. Three walls of smartly planned cabinetry with a center island, peninsula bar with seating, and well divided workspaces, create ample prep and serving space. A substantial custom cabinetry vent hood built over a 5-burner gas range, in combination with the kitchen’s full stainless luxury appliance suite, double ovens, built in microwave, extra deep double sink, and charming vintage-look industrial pendants over the island, all come together to create a beautiful hardworking kitchen.
The breakfast room is open to the living area and kitchen. A glass door to the patio and a wall of windows along to back of the home have views to the large grassy yard.
In the corner of the kitchen by the well-shelved walk in pantry, a separate door closes the laundry from the kitchen to keep things quiet and contained.
The laundry room is nicely appointed with closed cabinetry, hanging area, and striking 24-inch stone look tile floor.
The master suite is located off a side hall from the family room area. The hall to the master suite takes a turn behind the stairs and houses the home’s half bath. With lovely furniture vanity and reclaimed space, it’s a jewel box of a necessary room.
Continue around the corner and at the end of the hall find the master suite. It’s a graciously proportioned room, with a stately ceiling fan fixture, crown molding, and a bay wall of floor to ceiling windows to wash to room in warm natural light. Plush designer carpet is on the floor.
Through a double door entry, the master bath sparkles with light integrated sink countertops on white furniture finish vanities. Beautiful light floors are a travertine-look in an expansive 24in square. Separate vanities sit under a wall of mirror. Each vanity flanks an offset cabinet area. Faucets are in a warm oil rubbed bronze wide spread graceful arch, with the tub, shower, and lighting fixtures to match. Across from the vanity wall under a large window, sits the tub with the stone tile deck surround and backsplash with relief border treatment. The large corner shower has wide door entry and is tiled in the same light stone look tile with surrounding border detail.
At the end of the master bath is entrance to the master closet. The closet is well designed and beautifully appointed with open shelf storage, cubbies, and generous amounts of hanging space.
At the end of the breakfast room is an entry hall to the home’s three car tandem garage. A single bay garage is just as you enter the garage space. Behind it are two large bays with a double door entry off to your left. The garage has ample space for additional shelf storage area and has wonderful over door loft grids for seasonal storage.
Ascend the stair to find the large game room. A balcony railing at the top landing repeats the staircase spindles and is open to the entry below. A wet bar area is located just inside the game room and before the entrance to the media room. Furniture finish closed cabinetry, under counter refrigerator, granite counter top, plush designer carpeting, hipped vaulted ceilings, and a centered ceiling fan make this a great hangout area for family or friends. At the far end of the room, windows flank French doors leading to the upper balcony. The large covered balcony is the perfect spot to watch the day end as the home is situated for true privacy along the back of the home.
Double doors near the wet bar open to the media room along the side of the home. The media room is perfectly outfitted for a wonderful full theater experience. The room has a hipped vaulted ceiling and is painted in a rich chocolate all around. The integrated columns are crowned with trim and lantern style sconces accent each one. A storage closet is convenient for media storage and additional gaming accessories.
There are three very generously proportioned bedrooms upstairs. Bedrooms have high ceilings, large windows, and generous walk in closets. Two of the bedrooms have a Jack and Jill shared access to the wet room, each with its own separate cased opening vanities attached to the bedroom. The third of the three upper rooms has an en-suite bath with a door open to the hall for use of the common rooms.
The home’s warm brick and random set fieldstone exterior is classic and appealing. Hipped roof peaks, offsets, and multiple levels add interest and balance to the home’s front face. A gently curving sidewalk path leads you up several steps up to a welcoming porch. The home is beautifully landscaped, planted with varying heights of shrubbery and large trees. The plantings line the foundation are planned for spring and summer displays with year round interest. In the backyard, the covered porch makes a large e outdoor living area. The yard is large and grassy with plenty of room to play!
