The amenities don’t stop with this house, from the grand raised entry at the start of the home to the entertaining area at the rear patio. The main living areas for the home greet you with vaulted ceilings, a generous amount of LED canned lighting and a linear fireplace. Centered in the home is an extra-large island (60×100), with Calacatta quartz tops that waterfall, accommodating seating for 4, and a great amount of storage. New and fresh perspectives bring full height mirrors that reach the ceiling and sit directly on the counter tops. Many locations of LED lighting throughout the home.

The master suite will be featuring a fully digital shower programmable with voice command, as well as his and her closets. The grand entry features a trayed ceiling with cedar channel accents along with matching stone that ties into the rear patio area. As you enter the home thru the oversized double entry door, you will walk into a great space featuring a coffered ceiling with a barrel archway and a gorgeous custom chandelier. This home features 8’ interior doors thru out, with two individual style doors to give the home a unique and contrasting feel. A spacious laundry room is a great feature of this home with a super crisp and clean feel. Hardwood flooring runs thru the main living areas of the home.

This property has some great components for entertaining, as you walk out the 4-panel sliding glass door that opens to 8’ wide, you will find 2 accent fire pits at the rear patio area, as well as a stand-alone fire pit with surround seating, tv and sound bar. Rear patio also features a matching brick surround island BBQ and is pre-wired for hot tub. Entertain guests with custom barn wood that was installed at the rear patio to provide that sort of country feel while living in the city. The stucco exterior is very subtle and clean with some excellent color tones giving it an elegant feel.
