Description of Property
All too often, a lot in a desired subdivision is limited such that neighboring homes are separated by only a few feet. Such is the case with many of the homes in this development. However, this premium lot is not only one of the largest lots in the subdivision, but it is surrounded on three sides by beautiful natural features and is set back from neighbor homes significantly. The lot is well over 16,000 square feet and is located at the end of a cul-de-sac on a large, paved pipe-stem driveway. The landscape is flat enough to be maintained with a riding lawn mower and contoured enough to allow for a walk-out basement with three full-size basement windows. This is the most private lot in the entire subdivision.
The home has three sides finished with hi-quality beaded vinyl siding and a front façade of traditional brickwork. The front porch is adorned with columns and is large enough to comfortably provide space for two large chairs, table(s), and other décor. The garage door is a premium design and the basement walk out leads to a humble patio area; perfect for grilling.
In front, the home has elevated planting beds made of castle-wall blocks on either side of the concrete walk and entry way. Additional castle-wall blocks create an additional circular planting bed surrounding the oak tree in front of the house. A developing hedgerow of Leland cypress will soon enhance the privacy of the home even further.
The main level of the home is adorned with natural hardwood floors with a contemporary open floorplan; including a foyer, library/office, formal dining room, upgraded kitchen, pantry, informal dining area, solarium, family room, mudroom, laundry room, powder room, and four storage closets.

The library/office is equipped with traditional French doors, crown molding, custom leather window treatments, and a full wall bookcase with accent lighting.
The formal dining room transports its occupants into an ornate room of eastern European décor with an imported crystal chandelier; centered in a hand-painted gold ceiling medallion in a field of Russian ceiling paper centered in a formal tray ceiling; all trimmed in gold millwork and ornate crown molding. The large window is trimmed with high-end custom window treatments that perfectly compliment the space.
