WELCOME TO THE IDEAL HOME
FEATURES 4 BEDROOMS, 4.5 BATHROOMS, 5.7K SQ FT
Many of the thoughtful design elements can be seen in the Ideal Home which came from conversations between Alan, Scott and their spouses. The house is built for entertaining, satisfying those who wish for an open concept living and dining area while maintaining rooms to retreat. In the dining room, ceilings vault up to 17 feet where Cedar beams combined with a limestone mantle add a cozy element to the dining area. Cabinetry is also used on the way to the dining room, where there is a short hall featuring a wet bar. While delivering new technology and concepts, the house maintains a look from the past. Limestone, natural wood and elements of color were used to create a European-style comfort.
A large living space with a grand Indiana limestone fireplace leads to an open kitchen. The large white slab of stone that is the island is supported by quartered oak, which is new but looks aged. Complete with high-end appliances including a wine refrigerator. Off the kitchen is a “service wing” where homeowners can tuck away countertop appliances in a large pantry. There is a central office space that’s perfect for someone who works from home. At the end of the hallway is a mudroom and laundry room. A large island provides space for folding and even a seated area for crafting. The cabinetry provides a pop up drawer for a sewing machine, a wrapping station, a large farmhouse sink and even a drawer with a small built-in ironing board. Also includes a steam clothing care system. A top-of-the-line surround sound system with speakers that are heard but not seen throughout the home.
In the bathroom along the entire length of one wall is an oversized shower, packed with two separate shower heads and handhelds, four body sprayers and a rain head as well as Bluetooth speakers. There are no valves on this shower system it’s all digital, so if you want the water to be at a certain temperature you just set it. There also is an option to connect the shower system to your smartphone.
On the way back to the bedroom there is a wet bar, proving you never have to leave your retreat.
The closet space features a large island with drawers and walls filled with cabinetry. The very top cabinets were kept glass so someone could show off some of their finer things, perhaps a luxury purse collection.
There are also two dressing areas where you can sit down and a vanity area where you can put on your makeup.
Overlooking the area is the private master porch and a large outdoor living space with outdoor fireplace. There is room for an outdoor kitchen, dining area and seating. Just around the corner is European-style courtyard. Lush landscaping on all sides, concrete benches and a limestone fountain with two custom design pieces. Among bedrooms on the top floor is a large media space that will house an 85-inch TV with backlighting. There also is a pool table space with three televisions hanging on the walls. The basement level offers another garage area to supplement the two-car garage on the main level. The basement living spaces have been kept open to interpretation. All three floors are joined via an elevator. With hidden speakers, vaulted ceilings, quartz countertops, pendant lights in the dressing room, and a centralized office space, the home is as functional as it is beautiful.
