With 2,266-square-feet of living area, the home has Brazilian cherry wood flooring and several hand-painted murals on the walls. The cherry floors are in narrow planks and are in every room except bathrooms and the laundry room. The home also has a surround sound system inside and out, and a large back yard surrounded by a wood privacy fence. There’s a wide covered porch out back, a half-moon shaped concrete patio and a 10 x 20 foot storage shed/workshop. It’s a nice, private and secure back yard, so you can turn the kids or the pets loose. The front of the home is brick and stucco, with a front-loading two-car garage. The back of the house is in durable Hardiplank. The foyer opens to a dining area immediately to the right. The dining area has a ceiling fan and a wall mural, with a big window at the end providing lots of natural light. Ahead from the foyer, the family room has a 12-foot ceiling which drops to 10 feet over the kitchen and breakfast area. The family room has a wide fireplace with ceramic gas logs. The wood mantle is flanked on both sides by built-in cabinetry and shelving. Separating the family room from the kitchen is a long, two-level granite bar with a double stainless sink in the counter below. The same granite is on a rectangular center island, which has a nice three-light fixture overhead. The kitchen has a microwave over an oven, as well as a four-burner GE gas cook top. Kitchen cabinetry is painted, and there is a corner pantry near a small granite bar. At the end of the kitchen, the breakfast room has a nice iron light fixture, more wood floors and three tall windows to the back porch and yard. Meanwhile, the home’s layout is a true split floor plan, with the master suite behind the kitchen and the other three bedrooms along a hallway on the other side of the family room. The master suite has more cherry floors and a ceiling fan overhead, while three large windows view the back yard. The master bath has ceramic tile floors and two vanities: a long one for her and a taller one for him. The vaulted ceiling gives an open feeling to the bath, which has a corner Jacuzzi tub below a window. There is a also large walk-in shower at the end of her vanity. The master bath has the second of the three hand-painted murals in the home, and a single large master closet is at the end of the bath. A powder room, the laundry room and a small drop-off room are behind the kitchen, near the exit to the home’s two-car garage and workshop. The three other bedrooms are situated in a row along a wood-floored hallway. At the end of the hall, bedroom No. 4 connects to a full bath with double vanities.
