Every detail of this Ange Signature Home has been thoughtfully considered. Upon approaching the broad south-facing porch, your eye is drawn from the Charleston shutters to the coach lights and up to the coffered porch ceiling. There is a formal dining room to the left of the grand entry foyer trimmed in layers of millwork and wainscoting. Gleaming hardwoods lead to the huge living room anchored by a large gas/wood burning fireplace. The master suite is off of the living room and spans the entire east side of the home. Walking through the owners foyer into the bedroom, you realize that this is truly an owners retreat. The bedroom is large enough for any type of furniture and the finishes in the bath are world class – seeing is appreciating. Through another arch at the rear of the living room, you will find the informal living spaces, with a wide open kitchen, breakfast nook, and keeping room. This space is bathed in light – both sock-feet comfortable and candlelight elegant.
The gourmet kitchen showcases the fine taste of the owners, with Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf gas range, Bosch dishwasher, and of course creamy white casework, travertine backsplash, and acres of level 5 granite. There is a huge loft area that looks down over the keeping room that joins this awesome space with the upstairs. There are also three bedrooms and two jack-and-jill baths on this level as well as a fantastic bonus room. The bedrooms are large and have great closet space. And to round it out, there is a finished third floor, currently used as a bedroom, but could just as easily be a yoga studio or theater room.
While the interior of this home has been decadently appointed, the outdoor living space are equally attractive. The addition of a Port Cochere at the side of the home provides loads of function and curb appeal, and ties in to the fenced back yard. There is also a beautiful covered porch with a gas/woodburning fireplace for those intimate cool evenings…
