Transitional-Style Custom Home Exterior


The exterior of this transitional-style home boasts an abundance of charm. White lap siding wraps around the entire home and showcases a clean and polished aesthetic.

Two sharp gables adorn the front of the home and offer a quaint and welcoming feeling to the home’s exterior. The front of the home also includes access to the two-car garage through two single garage doors.

As you approach the front door, the covered entry includes a cozy built-in bench. This addition truly adds charm to the space.

As you continue around the home, seafoam green shake shingle siding breaks up the white lap siding. The shake shingle siding decorates a lookout-style feature that houses the stairwell in the home’s interior.

Finally, the rear of the home includes a gracious screened-in back porch and an additional uncovered back porch.


Classic Cottages Custom Interior


The home’s polished interior boasts five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and 4,780 square feet of uncomparable living space. Immediately upon entering the home, guests and residents alike enjoy a spacious front entryway with recessed lighting and warm hardwood floors.

There are two sets of stairs directly off the entryway. One set leads to the home’s upper levels while the second leads to the finished basement.


Powder Bath


Venture through the home’s front entryway to access a convenient powder bath. The powder bath features a single vanity with gold finishes.




Access a spacious mudroom directly across the hallway from the powder bath. The mudroom hides behind a convenient pocket door.

The room features closet space, a built-in drop zone, weathered tile flooring, and a door to access the two-car garage.


Living Room


At the end of the foyer is the open-concept living area. The living area boasts the same warm hardwood floors from the home’s entry. Recessed lighting adorns the ceiling while natural light flows in from all sides.

A sliding glass door off the living room leads to the screened-in back porch. The cozy screened-in back porch includes a charming vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting, and a fan. The porch creates a seamless indoor-outdoor flow


Screened-in back patio


If an uncovered porch is more your style, don’t worry! A door off the screened-in back porch leads to an additional porch. This one is uncovered and has stairs leading to the backyard.

Back inside, an open-concept dining area awaits.


Dining Area


Since this home boasts an open-concept floor plan, the dining area offers a seamless extension of the living room. The spacious dining area itself includes a wet bar with a prep sink and ice maker. Wooden hanging shelves rest overtop the wet bar and add additional rustic character to the home.

In between the dining area and gourmet kitchen, a buffet area offers additional counter space. Below the counter is not only a wine cooler but a separate beverage cooler as well.


Gourmet Kitchen


The gourmet kitchen truly is a chef’s dream! The spacious kitchen includes an oversized island and more cabinet and counter space than you’ll ever need. Three pendant lights reside over the island while an overhang offers barstool seating. Convenient cabinet and drawer storage are on either side of the island.

Throughout the kitchen, rustic-finished cabinets go all the way up to the ceiling and boast under-cabinet lighting. A white tile backsplash adorns the back wall and adds an additional polished flair to the space.

Three picture-frame windows on the back wall illuminate the kitchen with natural light. Just below the windows resides a stainless steel undermount sink. The kitchen also includes a six-burner gas stove and stainless steel range hood.

Finally, a convenient walk-in pantry with wooden shelves provides even more storage options.
