Attention to detail and a high level of craftsmanship is evident at first glance of this Elite Builders walk-out ranch home. Reminiscent of the sea, blue lapboard siding and grey shake siding mix with light stacked stone accents and columns near the covered concrete porch. The red mid-century modern front door welcomes family and friends inside.
The large entry – composed of thick white millwork, neutral grey walls and beautiful weathered wood flooring – leads you into the open living area. The comfortable seating area and kitchen are immersed in natural light, made possible by large three-panel windows in the living room.
Fresh white beveled cabinets line the back wall of the kitchen, providing plenty of storage including a hidden walk-in custom pantry. A white glass tile backsplash offers a stark contrast to the dark granite countertops. Stainless steel appliances – including double ovens – give any home chef the tools and amenities needed to prepare a gourmet meal or a quick bite. A tall appliance storage cabinet sits between the refrigerator and ovens, adorned with decorative frosted glass doors. A dark stained wood island with a patterned granite countertop features a white apron sink, convenient pullouts and added storage while offering extra seating and prep area. Wood floors continue into the dining area, which is almost surrounded by large windows. Sliders lead to the spacious covered deck, seamlessly adding a living extension to the main level.
The Elite Builders team has placed functional living space near the oversized three car garage. The drop zone area is designed for any busy family. Custom stained lockers feature cubbies, hooks, cabinets and a granite bench. Tile floors continue throughout the space, leading into a laundry room with custom cabinetry, granite countertops and a sink. Two guest bedrooms, each with their own custom walk-in closets, share a large Jack and Jill style bathroom.
For added comfort and privacy, the master suite is located on the opposite side of the main floor. Large windows facing the backyard and transom windows above the bed allow natural light to flow throughout the space. The master bedroom has ample space to include a seating area for those who like to relax on weekend mornings with a good book or conversation.
In the master bathroom, custom rich wood cabinetry with modern chrome fixtures complements patterned granite countertops. Separate sink areas give busy homeowners their own space to get ready for the day. A linen closet and water closet are next to an impressive waterfall tiled walk-in shower. Marbled slab tile lines the walls with three white tiled inlaid shelves creating a rythmn. A seat, mosaic floor and white tile accents add utility and beauty.
The Elite Builders team continues the coastal living feel into the lower level with hues of white, soft grey and a luxurious wave patterned carpet. The stairs open into a living and gaming area designed for entertaining guests or enjoying family time. Large floor-to-ceiling windows and sliders to the patio offer maximum light and warmth to what would be an otherwise dark basement space. A stylish tiled wet bar area sits to the side of the television area and features a full-sized refrigerator, wine cooler, microwave and sink. Practicality meets elegance in the wet bar with plenty of barware storage cabinets, open shelving, granite countertops and a subway tile backsplash.
Two additional bedrooms, complete with walk-in closets, are located in the lower level. The bedrooms share a master-sized bathroom with large custom cabinets, granite countertops, two sinks, a large linen closet and a walk-in slab tile shower with mosaic accents.
