This northwest contemporary style home has been beautifully refreshed in a light and refined neutral palette!
Situated on a very quiet street and backing up to the greenbelt of Fauntleroy Park, a large covered, columned, front porch has dark hardwood decking and leads to a dramatic, double-height formal entry, with maple floors opening to the spacious living and dining rooms and leading up the formal staircase to the second floor.
The wonderful “bones” of the traditional – yet modern – floor plan include two high ceilinged floors of generously sized rooms with loads of big windows. There are three bedrooms on the second floor, including a sumptuous master suite with a five-piece bath and walk-in closet, a second full bath and full size laundry room. All the rooms on the main floor are gracious and light-filled and include a den, media room and casual dining/family room. A bay window at the front of the living room provides more light and outlooks, as well as architectural interest along with the recessed ceilings and natural-finished wood millwork around the windows and doors.
Also off the entry is a coat closet, and the door leading down to the two-car garage that also houses the mechanicals and offers lots of space for projects or storage; the double-wide driveway providing additional parking.
Beyond the formal rooms, the kitchen opens to a casual dining/family room – both overlooking the park greenbelt, A side door in the kitchen opens to two large decks on the side and back of the home. The kitchen has light maple cabinets and floors, and the black granite countertops, in addition to being highly functional, provide a striking visual contrast! The stove is gas-fired and a greenhouse window over the sink is ideal for growing herbs or ornamentals. Another bay window expands the casual dining area. Adjacent is a pantry and additional storage closet. Just down the hall is the powder room, den, and the large media room – which is wired for surround-sound speakers and spans the depth of this wing with windows on three sides.
Upstairs, a large landing leads to one wing comprising the master suite – with vaulted ceilings also spanning the depth of this wing and windows on three sides. The master bath has a jetted soaking tub and separate shower, double sink large vanity, tile counters and floors, and a convenient linen closet!
The other upstairs wing has two more bedrooms, a full bath and laundry room with full size machines and a useful laundry sink. A half-wall here allows overlooks to the formal entry, and there’s a display area next to the stairs with a half round window and display platform.
