Located in the thriving, northeast side of Sioux Falls sits a beautifully designed home built by Harvey Custom Homes. This two-story home has 2,808 finished square feet with the opportunity for another 1,288 square feet to be completed in the lower level. The four-bedroom, two-bath home boasts plenty of custom features, bringing together traditional and contemporary styles.
A grand exterior sets the tone for this fantastic home. Cedar shake siding and stone accents beautifully complement the taupe siding and elegant white trim. A covered front porch, complete with stamped concrete, greets friends and family. Up above, wooden ship lap covers the porch ceiling and provides the perfect backdrop to an industrial-style chandelier. A dark Polar front door, sandwiched between two framed window panes, offers a warm welcome inside.
Inside, tall intricate ceilings and an open floor plan create a remarkable living space. A sparkling chandelier – both functional and beautiful – hangs from the tray ceiling. Immediately to the left of the entrance sits the naturally-lit office. A large transom window and a large front window cover the area in sunlight, making this study anything but boring.
As you pass by the grand open staircase and into the great room, the magnitude of the room greets you in a stately way. A three-pane window nearly covers the wall, offering spectacular views of the neighborhood. White built-in cabinets surround the gas fireplace and mantle, adding style to the cozy space. Glass door insets add depth to the cabinets and offer an opportunity to showcase special keepsakes. A pair of transom windows above the cabinets add even more light to the airy space. Overhead, a coffered ceiling with white wooden beams gently creates the feeling of a larger-than-life ceiling.
Within this open concept home, the great room flows effortlessly into the dining area. A simple tray ceiling sets the scene for a stunning chandelier, which hangs above the rustic dining table. Just off the dining area, a door leads to a covered patio, complete with wiring and speakers for audio, along with a ceiling fan.
Elegant crown molding rests on white custom cabinets, giving the kitchen a magnificent appearance. A dark painted island sits below light-colored granite countertops and two simple pendant lights. Black granite countertops wrap around the kitchen and provide a strikingly handsome contrast to the white custom cabinets. A grey-and-white patterned backsplash covers the walls, beautifully complementing the white cabinets and professional-grade appliances.
As you leave the main living area, an open staircase leads you to a unique loft. With bright light and a comfortable feel, this space is perfect for weekend reading or conversing with friends and family.
Poplar French doors usher you into the breathtaking master suite. The vaulted ceiling is the focal point here, and is perfectly paired with a striking silver chandelier. Lowered beams run perpendicular with the floor, creating a unique masterpiece. A large walk-in closet with recessed lighting and custom shelving completes the luxurious space.
A large tile walk-in shower awaits you in the master bath. With mosaic accent tiles running vertically down one side and on the floor, this glass-enclosed shower is just the beginning of elegance in the master bath. A spacious soaker tub sits below an oversized square picture window, directly across from the dual sink vanity. Brushed nickel fixtures complement dark and grey granite countertops. White custom cabinets provide homeowners with ample storage.
Conveniently located across from the master suite, the laundry room is flooded with natural light. Black granite countertops contrast against functional white cabinets. Large, neutral tile and a utility sink complete this practical space.
All three additional bedrooms are located on the upper level of this quality home, each with their own amazing view of the surrounding land. Dark Poplar swing-out closet doors, plush carpet, custom closet shelving and ceiling fans are similar in each room with one room containing a built-in nook as you enter the room. The additional bedrooms also share a common bath. With dual undermount sinks, granite countertops and a large vanity mirror, this bath is sure to provide enough room for all, as well as being a comfortable spot for guests.
A large open staircase leads to the unfinished lower level, an additional 1,288 square feet of garden-view space waits to be finished. The space could easily accommodate a large family room, a bathroom, and an additional bedroom.
In this newly built custom home, the best of both old and new details can be found. The style of this home is a blend of old meets new, from the modern built-in cabinets to the exquisite lighting and unique ceilings. Contemporary style meets an old farmhouse feel, creating a place full of character.
