This Entertainer’s Home Is Just Right
With a spacious floor plan and tiered backyard, this Victorian tri-level on Happy Valley Drive was built for entertaining. Five bedrooms and seven bathrooms provide plenty of living space, and the basement-level rec room is perfectly designed to host intimate gatherings and parties.
From the sidewalk, the home’s stunning led glass windows and wrap-around porch create a natural warmth and charm. From the front door, guests often admire the immaculate hard oak floors and plentiful natural sunshine. Light floods in through the front window, lighting up an open sitting room. Past the sweeping spiral staircase, the basement level leads down to the right, and the kitchen and family living spaces are just down the hall.
On the main floor, the formal living room is a wonderful spot to entertain family or guests, especially when the afternoon sun fills the house with warm light. Down the hall, the stand-alone dining room features hard oak floors, as well. The kitchen, which overlooks the backyard, is poised for guests, as well, with an island-style counter and barstools. Across from the kitchen, the family room is open yet cozy with a fireplace and view of the surrounding greenery. Making up the ground level, the home’s ample entertaining spaces are just the right fit.
Passing the only bedroom on the main floor, a second staircase leads to down to a basement-level bathroom and rec room. A full bar, complete with a wall-length stone fireplace make this an entertainer’s dream space. With stunning wood floors and minimalist décor, the rec room is simultaneously exclusive and the place to be. The night is always young with a separate entrance to the bottom-level back patio.
The home offers guests an indoor and outdoor route back upstairs, where most of the living spaces are located on the top level. The master bedroom is perhaps, one of the home’s most unique and stunning features. Wood floors and oak-framed lead windows lend a simplistic, organic beauty and calmness to the room, and the sprawling layout feels almost too extravagant. Wood plantation shutters offer privacy to the open room, as well as cover the windows throughout the house. Rounding out a stellar room, the master bath features a tub, vanity and walk-in closet.
