Introduction

This meticulously maintained home shows like new! Hardwood floors extend throughout all major living areas and designer lighting brings the open floor plan to life. Neutral paint and crisp white moldings create a peaceful atmosphere that flows from room to room while numerous windows capture gorgeous views and fill your home with natural light. Your main living area is perfect for entertaining with an enormous kitchen island that invites conversation. Beautiful white cabinets and stunning granite are found throughout your home, including your spa-inspired master bath. Both the master suite and guest room are downstairs, with your game room and three additional bedrooms on the second floor. A host of upgrades includes remote-operated fabric blinds, quality finishes and fixtures, and solid core doors on the first floor. Outside you will love the incredible yard with a custom pool, sunken living area with fireplace, and outdoor dining. Open fencing offers unobstructed views of the nature preserve behind your home for a gorgeous backdrop to your outdoor entertaining. Other improvements include a whole-house surge protector, automatic drip irrigation around your foundation, a security system with exterior cameras, and a Ring doorbell.

First Floor

This home makes a great impression the moment you step through the door. Guests are welcomed by high ceilings, beautiful crown molding, and a stunning stair that curves up and over the arched entrance to your living room. Gorgeous hardwoods extend from the entry throughout your main living areas, adding rich warmth to your home. Overhead the simple lines of the designer chandelier highlight the translucent stone that glows warmly. An open floor plan keeps your entry bright with light that spills in from adjacent rooms and a large window above your door.

To your right, hardwoods continue through a generous arch into your spacious dining room. Recessed bay windows bring in loads of natural light and frame views of your beautifully landscaped yard. Crown molding and tall baseboards in crisp white add a polished finish to this space, but it is the incredible chandelier in brass and translucent stone that creates a strong focal point over your dining table.

Moving forward from the entry, you walk under an arch formed by your elegant curved stair to find yourself in the heart of your home. This bright, spacious area contains your living room, breakfast nook, and kitchen, all of which are open to one another. Harwood floors and crown molding unite these into one cohesive and inviting space, with windows along the back of your home that showcase your pool and flood this area with natural light. Lovely fabric blinds are remote-controlled both here and in the study for easy transitions between soft diffused light and gorgeous outdoor views. A glass door offers easy access to your patio and yard.

In your living room, natural stone tile extends up to the ceiling around your gas fireplace. A deeply stained floating mantel maintains the clean lines and elegant feel found throughout your home. Continuing through the living room, your breakfast table is centered under a fantastic chandelier that adds character and warmth. Your casual eating flows seamlessly into your kitchen, where double stacked cabinetry in clean white is topped to echo the crown molding in the living and breakfast areas. Beautiful travertine forms the backsplash above the granite counters and creates an attractive mosaic accent above your 6-burner gas cooktop. In the center of your kitchen, an enormous island offers ample prep space in addition to housing your sink and dishwasher. Casual seating along the curved edge invites guests to linger and chat as meals are prepared. A serving area between the kitchen and dining room is complete with granite counters and glass-fronted cabinetry for a beautiful display.

Back at your living room, double doors swing open to a peaceful and spacious study. High ceilings, crown molding, and a wall of windows with gorgeous natural views create a serene space where you can relax and collect your thoughts.

On the opposite side of your home, your master suite is also a spacious and tranquil retreat. The soaring vaulted ceiling is framed with crown molding and extends all the way to the sitting area, where bay windows overlook your outdoor living room and fireplace. Both the windows and the private door to the patio are outfitted with remote-operated blinds for ultimate convenience. At the other end of the room, double doors lead to your master bath where hardwood floors give way to diagonal-set tile that accents the room’s generous proportions. White cabinetry is topped with granite in rich, warm tones for a pleasing contrast and peaceful atmosphere. Separate sinks, a spacious walk-in shower with frameless glass, and a deep garden tub offer luxurious pampering at the end of a long day. Beyond these is your master closet, which thoughtfully connects directly to a beautiful laundry room, where white cabinets and a granite counter echo the kitchen’s finishes. A large utility sink, space for an extra fridge, and a generous closet make your laundry room as functional as it is beautiful.

Your guest suite is also located on the first floor, down a hall just off your home’s entry. This bedroom is large and bright with sunlight that spills through the front window. Plush carpet and a great walk-in closet ensure that your guests are comfortable with plenty of space. Just outside the bedroom, a hall bath serves both your overnight and daytime guests with clean white cabinets and an elegant granite vanity. Clear glass at the walk-in shower shows off the beautiful tile and glass mosaic accent that ties the room together.

Situated near your guest suite, your single garage has high ceilings perfect for the addition of overhead storage. Your double garage, which connects to your home by your laundry room, also has high ceilings as well as extra width to accommodate a workbench or storage system. This side-entry garage has front-facing windows and includes overhead storage already installed.

Second Floor

As your stair curves elegantly to the second floor, dark hardwoods and clean white edging are complemented by iron balusters and a warm wood handrail. At the landing one bedroom lies to your left while hardwoods continue to the right, leading beside the game room to the bedrooms on the other side.

Your game room is centrally located, defined by carpet and a vaulted ceiling. Windows along the back wall and French doors to the balcony flood this room with natural light. Views of the nature preserve and the pond behind offer a spectacular backdrop to this space, while the large balcony allows you to extend your entertaining into the outdoors. An enormous closet at the back of the game room is shelved for A/V equipment, with plenty of space left to store games and other items when not in use. A wet bar nearby boasts granite counters, a stainless sink, and glass-fronted cabinetry. A beverage fridge keeps cold drinks handy while the game is playing on your large-screen TV.

There are three bedrooms upstairs, and each has plush carpet, bright windows, and a large closet. The bedroom at the top of the stair also has vaulted ceilings and a great private ensuite with a walk-in shower. The other two bedrooms are on the far side of the game room and share a wet area with a tiled tub. The front bedroom has a private vanity, while the back bedroom has hall access to a vanity shared with the game room.

Exterior

A winning combination of light cut stone and warm-toned brick creates loads of curb appeal for this elegant home. Well-maintained landscaping along the front lawns includes shrubs, flowering plants, and ornamental trees for a beautiful variety of textures and colors. Your salted concrete drive leads to a central courtyard between richly stained garage doors. A charming metal roof adds interest as it accents the bay window overlooking your front yard.

Behind your home, your back yard offers outdoor living at its finest. A pergola extends your shaded patio, offering plenty of space for both casual seating and an outdoor dining table. Three ceiling fans keep air moving on warm days, and soft curtains can be drawn or tied back as you desire. Next to your dining table, your outdoor cooking center boasts double burners and space for your outdoor grill and smoker. You can comfortably entertain well into the evening, thanks to accent lighting on the fence and natural oil-based, non-insecticide mosquito misters that keep insects at bay.

Leaving the shade, travertine tile continues around your custom pool with a heated spa, bubblers, and a tanning ledge. Beautiful aqua tile around the perimeter offers a splash of tropical color against the natural stone. A waterfall along the back creates a cascade of soothing sound and lounge chairs enjoy a sunny spot at the far end of the pool. Opposite the loungers, your sunken living area is centered around a stunning gas firepit with glass pebbles and a mosaic accent in the same aqua tones as your pool. A low ledge offers additional seating and divides your living area from the landscaping that extends around the perimeter of your yard. Florals, holly, low shrubs, and natural grasses are beautifully planted in a washed rock fill for lush, low maintenance beauty that complements the nature preserve behind your yard. A gate offers easy access to trails any time you please, making this home a rare find.
