A full description of the house features and upgrades, the Overlook community, and the Landmark Mall redevelopment project is provided below.
A focus on the details, both big and small, is apparent throughout the house. An eye-pleasing color palette throughout the house will compliment any design style preferred by the new homeowner.
- A curved front walk leads to the front door, with newly installed black carriage post and house fixtures lighting the way.
- The front door opens to a 2-story Foyer with a 15-light candelabra, which makes a grand, yet welcoming entry. A sitting area and the Dining Room flank the entry for the feeling of open space upon your first step inside. The entry also offers the first views of the green screen behind the house.
- The open Dining Room has a new brushed gold 9-light candelabra with matching sconces, crown molding with dentil detail, and raised panel molding to provide design appeal.
- The Foyer leads to the Living Room, where a gas fireplace with extensive mantle trim provides the focal point for this space.
- The open kitchen has plentiful space on the granite counters for the cook to work. The kitchen is large enough for a separate eating area, with a brushed gold candelabra providing a design focal point visible throughout the main level.
- From the kitchen, you can walk out to the deck for morning coffee or al fresco dining. You can also enjoy sunset and green Park views, with an automatic retractable awning to provide shade as desired (the awning fabric is new). The large lower deck (14'x29') and Flagstone patio (16'x25') are a private retreat that can be accessed via stairs from the deck. The plantings around the patio have been chosen for privacy, 3 season color and interest, and ease of care.
- The Main Level office has built-in bookcases, crown molding, and wainscot trim.
- The Main Level also has centrally-located half bath.
- The open space and circular flow of the Main Level, with outside access to the deck and patio below, provide great entertaining options, with enough space to make a large gathering feel intimate.
- While the open Main Level and outside space can be enjoyed with family and friends, the Owner's Suite is a space that the new homeowner can claim as their own private retreat.
- The Owner's Suite is accessed through double doors, with a view of the 2-story foyer. The bedroom is sized to make a King bed look small. A separate seating area has a gas fireplace and flanking built-in bookcases, which creates a comforting space for a nap or a lazy day read. The Owner's Suite also provides peaceful views of mature trees and the patio water fountain.
- The Owner's Suite bathroom is both large and filled with natural light. The bathroom has a large, double sink vanity with a separate shower and jetted tub. A water closet in the bathroom provides both privacy and a cleaner look in this space.
- The walk-in closet in the Owner's Suite is large enough to feel like its own room.
- The Bedroom Level has the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, each sized for a Queen bed. The 2nd full bathroom is accessed both from the 2nd bedroom for en suite use by guests and the hall. The 3rd bedroom is currently used as a space to watch TV or enjoy a relaxing book read. Or another place to nap.
- The Lower Level is another large open space with separate areas for relaxation or entertaining. A 4-light globe candelabra in this space provides a focal point to set up a wine and game table underneath. This level also has a wet bar and a walk-out to the lower deck and the patio.
- The 4th bedroom is located on this level, with space to accommodate a Queen bed. The fully upgraded full bath on this level is accessible either directly from the bedroom or the Lower Level open space.
- The unfinished mechanical room on the Lower Level provides a large area for storage (approximately 450 sq.ft), with two different doors for ease of access. This storage space has wooden shelving and a work bench in place.
- The laundry is located just inside the garage on the Main Level, with a Samsung washer and dryer, utility sink, and a closet and overhead cabinets for storage. Additional storage on the Main Level is present in the walk-in entry closet.
- All light fixtures in the house have been upgraded, to include LED retrofit recessed lights with adjustable Kelvin (warm versus cool) levels to suit the homeowner's preference.
- Both HVAC systems were replaced in 2021 (Carrier).
- 75-gallon hot water heater ensures plentiful hot water.
