Tranquil, quiet, and a place that just makes you feel good, are apt adjectives for this 3,235 square foot home located in this established neighborhood.
And you won’t find a home more immaculately kept and move-in ready anywhere.
“The homeowner put $80,000 in to upgrades, from the flooring to the bathrooms to the backyard,” said Laurie Moore of Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
Perfect landscaping and outstanding curb appeal tell you that there’s something special in store. Step in to the home and your eyes will be drawn to soaring ceilings and custom light fixtures, surrounded by fresh paint, in the most welcoming neutral shades.
The flooring, which is new, includes travertine tiles paired with lustrous hand-scraped wood in cherry.
A den or office is a lovely offshoot from the home’s entry area, and is made private by the use of double glass doors. The room also includes closet space, making for an easy transition from den to bedroom if needed.
The home’s layout is perfect for practically every family. An oversized great room pairs with a gourmet, granite outfitted kitchen, creating a hub for entertaining.
The kitchen offers dual ovens, dual sinks, dishwasher and a five-burner cook top, all outfitted in stainless. The white kitchen with brushed nickel hardware, is flooded with natural light. The room has a pantry, as well as a breakfast room with glass-fronted cabinetry and a buffet area for additional storage.
You can tell that this is a forward-thinking homeowner by the careful care and consideration that was used in the home’s remodel.
The property has an alarm system and high-tech Nest thermostats. The home’s ambiance pairs tradition with a cool, modern vibe in its use of hardware and updated bath fixtures.
The downstairs includes a remote guest bedroom, but head upstairs to fully appreciate the home’s outstanding design.
An open loft space and an additional home office or den, complete with ceiling fan, awaits at the top of the stairs.
Whether it’s working from home, paying the bills or doing homework, these spaces allow you to keep life’s worries outside of your sleeping space.
The master bedroom is something special, indeed. The room includes a padded window seat, and the bath area includes large his-and-hers closets, along with dual vanities in rich granites and modern sinks and fixtures.
A stunning porcelain soaking tub steals the show in this room that was built with daily respite from worries in mind. The bath also includes an updated shower with a mosaic design and new rain-head fixtures.
You have to look upward to appreciate one of the most spectacular features of this custom home. Every room has crown molding and many rooms have unique ceiling treatments. Even the guest bedrooms have special ceilings and ceiling fans. There’s nothing boring about this property.
The backyard includes a large covered patio area and a delightful design with lawns and meandering paths surrounded by towering cedars.
A walking path amid flush foliage creates a dedicated greenbelt that comprises the side of the property.
“It’s so quiet, and so peaceful,” Moore said.
