This classic two-story was built in 2014. The homeowner purchased the newly constructed home with a specific design concept in mind, which he has been implementing for the past two years. As he continues the renovation of this home, his primary goal is to create comfortable living spaces that are both contemporary and rustic and complemented by interesting furnishings that are warm, inviting and functional.
Walking into the house, you feel right at home. The foyer’s unique textures, fixtures and furnishings set the design tone that continues throughout home. A sleek formal dining room with lively blue dining chairs is a perfect first impression. Behind the custom sliding barn doors is a wine room which was converted from an oversized pantry. Adjacent to the wine room is the butler’s pantry. Together these rooms create a usable pass-through space that becomes a natural gathering area when entertaining guests. On the opposite side of the house, a front gallery room provides a casual space for reading, chatting and relaxing.
On the south side of the house, a custom white-washed beadboard ceiling flows from one end of the home to the other, enhancing the elegant, open kitchen and family room design. The kitchen mixes light and dark cabinetry with granite countertops, and the pendant lights above the center island are in keeping with the cool design of the home.
The homeowner took advantage of the large family room by relocating the gas fireplace between two sets of French doors. The large, beautiful hearth now invites gathering. The upper barn door cabinet reveals a hidden entertainment center. On the wall opposite the fireplace is a reading nook with a cozy built-in couch. This entire wall is finished with reclaimed wood to create a truly unique accent feature.
The homeowner utilized this same reclaimed wood in a number of places throughout the home to create balance and a consistent design. There is also a private and cozy first floor guest bedroom with its own stylish en suite bathroom.
The entire first floor has been furnished with a modern farmhouse vibe. Unique, custom and one-of-a-kind pieces abound.
The large French doors at the rear of the house lead out to a classic bluestone patio that anchors an outdoor wood and gas burning firepit and chef’s BBQ station – all designed by the homeowner and constructed by Harol Landscaping, LLC. Beyond the patio is an expansive green space with lovely trees and plantings along its entire perimeter that create a laid-back and private ambiance. Wherever you are in this smart home, the quality and decor can be compared to a work of art.
