5 Bedroom Custom Home
Darker exterior color palettes contrasting with natural accents are up-and-coming home design trends for 2023. While darker facades have been around for centuries, they are having a major moment in modern builds.
It’s not difficult to see why! Moody charcoal colors truly bring a historic twist to a traditional home and add a wealth of character. If you have a penchant for dark and moody exteriors, then this custom home may just be the one for you!
I toured the “Magnus II” by M&M Custom Construction while on a recent trip to Wichita, Kansas. M&M Custom Construction brings over 30 years of expertise to Wichita and the surrounding counties. Their attention to detail coupled with high-quality craftsmanship is evident in each of their custom homes.

5 Bedroom Custom Home Exterior
The dark facade of this ranch-style, 5 bedroom custom home immediately captures attention. The charcoal board and batten siding contrast beautifully with the natural brick accents.
While the exterior of the home is dark and moody, ample windows fill the interior with natural light. A four-lite front door and a transom window cast additional light into the entry of the home.
Continuing around the residence, a convenient three-car garage awaits. The garage includes two separate garage doors, one of which is double-wide. In the rear of the home, convenient outdoor space awaits.
The back of the home includes a covered back deck with steps to access the backyard and a lower-level patio. The same board and batten siding is featured on the back of the home.
Interior Home Design
The interior of the home beautifully contrasts the dark exterior with a brightly painted, sun-soaked space. The home boasts 2,636 square feet of open-concept living, two levels, and an overall welcoming aesthetic.
A set of stairs just off the entryway leads to a versatile basement level. Rich luxury vinyl flooring extends throughout the living space. The flooring transitions to carpet in the bedrooms and basement.
The home features the primary suite and two additional bedrooms on the entry level. Two additional bedrooms are located on the lower level. These lower level bedrooms provide privacy to serve as an at-home office space and guest bedroom.
Upon entering the home, residents and guests alike are greeted with rich floors, vaulted ceilings, and a lovely open-concept floor plan. The living area of the home is flooded with natural light from a large picture frame window overlooking the covered back porch.
The living area grants access via a single door to a beautiful covered back porch. The covered back porch includes a set of stairs to access the backyard and additional patio space.
Kitchen & Dining
The gourmet kitchen features a polished kitchen island with a dishwasher and a ceramic undermount sink. The quartz island provides a flexible breakfast bar and seats four comfortably with barstools.
Just beyond, the electric stove and microwave are flanked by abundant cabinet and counter space, alike. A geometric tile backsplash beautifully contrasts the dark countertops. Hide away kitchen gadgets with ease in the oversized corner pantry. The pantry includes plenty of built-in storage space.
The kitchen seamlessly flows into the sun-soaked dining area. The dining area is flanked by three windows, one a large picture frame window and the other two double-hung.
These windows offer an unobstructed view into the backyard of the home. A modern light fixture anchors the dining space.
Entry Level Laundry Room
The entry-level laundry room is located just off the kitchen. The laundry room includes washer and dryer hookups and practical hanging and shelf storage. Across from the laundry room is a small mudroom-inspired space.
The space includes a built-in bench and hooks to hang up coats with ease.
Just beyond the kitchen is the entry-level master suite. The 14’5”x11’8” primary bedroom boasts a tray ceiling, carpet flooring, and a large window overlooking the back of the home.
A door leads to the polished, en-suite primary bathroom.
The Master Bathroom
The en-suite bathroom includes a spacious double vanity with two large mirrors. A soaker tub rests in the corner with a frosted glass window casting natural light into the bathroom.
The bathroom also includes a glass-enclosed shower, water closet, and walk-in closet. Ample built-in storage is available in the walk-in master closet.
Secondary and Tertiary Bedrooms
Two additional bedrooms complete the entry level of the home.
One measuring 10’x12’ and the second 10’x11’15”. Both bedrooms included carpet flooring, closet space with built-in storage, and access to a shared hall bathroom.
Instead of a main-level powder bath, this model ups the ante with a full hall bathroom. The bathroom is located past the living area between the two additional entry-level bedrooms.
The bathroom includes a tubbed shower, single vanity, and a modern light fixture. A convenient coat and linen closet is located just outside of the bathroom. The linen closet has an upper and lower section and includes soft-close doors.
The three-car garage easily accommodates larger vehicles thanks to two separate garage doors, one double-wide. Access the spacious garage through the owner’s entry in the interior of the home.
This floor plan also includes a large, open-concept basement. The finished basement provides unmatched versatility and flexibility to be used as an additional living area, game room, or at-home gym.
Three separate windows flood the space with natural light and offer a glimpse into the backyard. Additional storage is available thanks to a large utility closet and a separate storage closet located under the stairs.
Carpet flooring and recessed lighting extend throughout the space leading to two additional bedrooms.
The finished basement provides access to two additional bedrooms, one measuring 9’5”x12’5” and the other 10’5”x11’5”. Both bedrooms offer the convenience to serve as guest rooms or even an at-home office space. Like the secondary and tertiary bedrooms above, the bedrooms feature carpet flooring and closet space. The closets in the basement bedrooms however are a tad larger. The bedrooms share access to a hall bathroom that includes a single vanity, tubbed shower, and polished finishes.
