One of the best custom designed and built homes in I'On. Alka Construction built home in 2014, this home offers style and easy-living and is also great for entertaining. Designed by BJ Barnes, the house takes advantage of the sunlight and lot orientation and faces one of the designated green spaces in the neighborhood. You enter into a lovely courtyard enclosed by stucco wall and custom fencing. The lush landscaping utilizes primarily indigenous plantings along with other hardy species, so it is easy to maintain and requires minimum irrigation.
The house is L-shaped to give you privacy, a courtyard, and off-street parking. You enter into a foyer from the front door to be greeted by a light filled staircase. The floor plan is open, loft-like and spacious, with a wood burning fireplace in the living area and multiple doors leading to the front courtyard and back patio. The light filled kitchen, which would delight any top chef, has a vaulted ceiling and opens onto the patio and courtyard. It is appointed with high quality German-made Siematic custom cabinets with quartz countertops and backsplash, providing the ultimate in functionality, durability and sleek styling. Appliances include a Sub Zero Pro 48 glass-fronted refrigerator and a 48-inch Wolf Range with dual ovens and a griddle along with a Wolf exhaust system. There is also a Sub-Zero wine cooler and Sharp microwave drawer. The first floor also includes a separate pantry, office area, powder room and mudroom with built in storage. One of the dual master bedrooms, also on the first floor, has french doors opening onto the courtyard and includes his and her walk-in closets and bath with a shower with custom tile.
Upstairs you will find a laundry room with sink and cabinets for storage. There is a second master bedroom upstairs with a large walk-in closet, tub and custom shower. Two other second floor bedrooms share a connected bath. Window treatment throughout the home are Hunter Douglas. Plumbing Fixtures are Hansgrohe. Floors throughout are high-grade oak with Bona Naturale matte finish that is scratch resistant and easy to maintain and repair (if ever required). Also notable: foam insulation in the attic and all exterior walls, quality windows and doors, programmable Nest thermostats and all LED recessed lighting render this home highly energy-efficient. The home also includes an attached two-car garage with a studio apartment above it, fronted by a charming porch that overlooks the courtyard. The space is plumbed and wired to add a kitchenette, if desired. Vaulted ceilings, a loft for storage or sleeping, and high-end finishes make this a great additional guest, studio or office space.
