This home is a show stopper! With it's structural features, soaring ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors, amazing decor, and attention to detail, you will think you are walking into an NV model home. BUT, you are not! This home and all of it's goodness was selected and has been well maintained by the current owners, so be sure you get a confirmed showing appointment before you walk in. (wink) The photos are spot-on, but when you walk through this home you will see for yourself all that it has to offer beginning with a dramatic foyer that is flanked by a formal dining room and living room. The flexibility and space of this layout worked perfectly with the demands of this past year. The living room easily converted into a work from home office while the study made for a perfect home-school area for the children. The spacious two-story family room is spectacular with a coffered ceiling and a wall of windows and opens to the kitchen allowing everyone to stay in the conversation. The center-island kitchen provides additional counter space. The cabinet space is plentiful, and the stainless steel appliances, upgraded granite countertops, and tiled backsplash makes this area sparkle. The main level has a good sized laundry room and a convenient mud room with built-in bench and cubbies. Access the upper level bedrooms from the kitchen staircase that joins the staircase from the main foyer. The owner's suite with tray-ceiling is accessed through impressive double doors and features an over-sized closet. The spa-like owner's bath offers a corner oval soaking tub and a separate shower as well as dual vanities. There are three additional bedrooms on this level: two which share a "buddy bath" and another with it's own en-suite. The finished lower level is a space for all to enjoy! It has an area to relax and watch movies with installed surround sound speakers, an awesome wet bar with QUARTZ countertops and a game area, a welcoming 5th bedroom, a full bath, and a play room with a built-in stage to bring out the actor/actress/singer in all of us! The entertaining can continue outside to the fantastic back patio with built in grill and refrigerator, table space, and pergola and has enough space to play in the yard. Like all new NV homes, this home is ENERGY STAR Certified, yielding monthly utility bills up to 30% lower than standard homes. After purchase, over $130K in capital improvements: finished the 5th bedroom, the full bath, and the play room. They added the wet bar, cabinetry and tile flooring. Added the 7 speaker surround sound system, projector, and screen. They added the outdoor patio and entertaining area, the in-ground irrigation system and finished the garages.
