Imagine no further.
The upgrades and appointments to this house are present in every room and every view within. A focus on the details, both big and small, is apparent throughout. An eye-pleasing color palette throughout the house will compliment any design style preferred by the new homeowner.
- A curved flagstone walk takes you through the front door to a 2-story foyer with a 9-light candelabra as the focal point. The entry offers the first views of the open Main Level with floors having an espresso finish that looks like it is poured onto the wood.
- The entry leads to the Living Room, where visual drama is provided by the coffered ceiling. The visual impact provided by the ceiling and floors is accented by the natural light flooding this space from the wall of windows across the entire space. The attention to design details throughout this space extends to the iron register and return covers.
- The kitchen has been fully remodeled, with high-end materials and attention to details throughout. The kitchen design allows for both the cook to show-off for guests in surround seating and for casual eating and daily routine tasks. Granite counters, polished marble tile backsplash, solid wood cabinets with pull-out drawers and other productivity features (e.g., a knife storage pull-out cabinet), GE Profile & Samsung stainless appliances (including 3-way steam wall oven), and programmable under cabinet and cove lighting.
- From the kitchen, you can walk out to the deck through an oversized custom sliding door for morning coffee or al fresco dining. From the deck, you can enjoy sunset and green Park views, with an awning to provide shade as desired. The large flagstone mortared patio below can be accessed via stairs from the deck.
- The open space and circular flow of the Main Level, with access to the deck and the patio below, provide great entertaining options, with enough space to make a large gathering feel intimate.
- The Dining Room has access to the kitchen via a separate door, with visual appeal provided by a bronze candelabra, crown molding with dentil detail, and wainscot trim.
- The Main Level also has an upgraded half bath.
- While the open Main Level and kitchen can be shown off to family and friends, the Owner's Suite is an equally impressive space that the new homeowner can claim as their own private retreat.
- The bedroom is accessed through double doors, with a view of the 2-story foyer and antique bronze balusters on the overlook railing. The bedroom is sized to make a King bed look small. A separate seating area has a gas fireplace, flanking built-in bookcases, and a brushed gold mini-candelabra, which creates a comforting space for a nap or a lazy day read. Plantation shutters and an awning allow the owner to control the light levels in this space.
- The fully renovated bathroom is simply stunning, with a custom vanity and natural Quartzite top, an oversized shower enclosure with marble tile, spa-level shower options, and frameless glass door. The oversized jetted soaking tub has a Quartzite deck. Polished chrome fixtures, a damp-rated light fixture over the tub, and French Provincial fabric on the window valances add luxurious touches to this space.
- The walk-in closet in the Owner's Suite is large enough to feel like its own room.
- The Bedroom Level has the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, each sized for a Queen bed, and the 2nd full bathroom. The 3rd bedroom is currently used as a home office.
- The Lower Level is another large open space with separate areas for entertaining. A 12-light bronze candelabra in this space matches the elegance found throughout the house. This level has a walk-out to the large flagstone patio with extensive hardscape and plantings chosen for both privacy and ease of care. The windows on this level have Plantation shutters.
- The Lower Level has a bump-out area that can also be used as an office, with a long run of upper and lower cabinets and black granite top. This level also has a granite-topped wet bar with upper cabinets.
- The 4th bedroom is located on this level, with space to accommodate a Queen bed. The full bath on this level is accessible either directly from the bedroom or the Lower Level open space.
