Sometimes a growing family means, “It’s time to get that mini-van. . .” and it almost always means, “Are we out of milk and cereal, AGAIN,” but it can be fun when that expansion leads to building the perfect family-sized home like this month’s featured build.
With more than 5,100 finished square feet, this 6-bedroom 4-bath home was built to withstand the rigors of family life. Beautiful and durable wood-look LVP flooring flows throughout the entire home, with the exception of kitchen and bathrooms, which are tiled.
The cheerful main-floor great room benefits from natural light coming from large windows and banks of sliding doors. A linear fireplace with stone surround matching that of the home’s exterior provides a cozy backdrop for family downtime.
The stunning kitchen at the heart of this home proves that Family Style can in fact be both functional and fabulous. Muted tones of ivory, oyster, and taupe are accented with Hale Navy cabinets above the cooktop, and in the mudroom and butler’s pantry.
Cubbies and coat hooks at the owner’s entry offer convenient storage, keeping household belongings contained.
Sleek, flat-panel design cabinets give a contemporary edge to the kitchen without making it feel sterile. A waterfall counter top at both ends of the island offers greater durability (disguised as luxe) in a busy—often messy hub of the home.
In contrast to the clean lines in the cabinetry, a dramatic rhomboid tile splash along both cooktop and sink walls, which extends to the ceiling, provides a touch of geometric artistry.
No one could complain about having to do dishes, with a view like this!
The rhomboid tile carries into the butler’s pantry, where an above-sink window and under-cabinet lighting keep the space warm and bright.
Upstairs, floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases suggest an office space or reading nook for the spacious loft.
For the ultimate in family fort-building, bedroom 2 contains a built-in platform with ladder.
Better yet is the opening in the wall that leads to the tubular slide connecting bedrooms 2 and 3!
The secondary bath echoes the playful vibe of the bedrooms, with shades of grey-green brick-set tile forming a scattered pattern on the shower walls. A double vanity ensures tooth-brushing space for everyone.
Downstairs, in the 1,500 sq. ft. finished basement you’ll find more room to grow and play, with a large built-in entertainment area.
Sporting the same geometric tile as the kitchen, the nearby wet bar provides space for drinks and ice, as well as a microwave for popping corn. Snacks can always be at hand!
When the littles have gone to bed and it’s time to relax, head to the primary suite, where indulgent comfort awaits. Heated tile flooring ensures luxury from head to toe.
When a home looks as inviting from the back as it does from the front, you know you’re in the right place.
