Welcome home to this 1,811-square-foot villa located in Southeast Sioux Falls. Built by local builders Tim and Dawn Stenberg of Joshua Homes, this three-bedroom, two-bath home is the epitome of maintenance-free living. The ability to live on one floor, without steps or the need to go downstairs, is executed to perfection in this comfortable home. An attractive neutral exterior, adorned with natural stone accents, and a three-stall garage greet you as you make your way onto the no-step front patio.
Inside, an oil-rubbed bronze caged pendant sits within a contemporary tray ceiling. Dark Cherry Poplar millwork contrasts effortlessly against lovely tan walls and engineered hardwood flooring. A spacious, functional kitchen sits just off the entryway. Gorgeous Birch cabinets, topped with crown molding, sit at staggering heights. An undermount sink and matte grey stainless appliances are brought to life by a tile backsplash comprised of brown, tan and white-toned tiles. Ivory granite countertops, embellished with waves of rich brown tones, grace the top of the cabinets and an island fit for two. Pendants above the island and sink shimmer with dainty hues of gold, and ensure the space remains airy and elegant.
With an abundance of windows, the dining area is the perfect place to watch the sunrise and sunset while enjoying a homecooked meal. Glass surrounds individual bulbs of an iron chandelier, casting rays of light on the walls and ceiling, while the recessed lighting in the great room provides ample light for game night or casual conversation. A gas fireplace, framed by bronze stone and thick Dark Cherry trim, is sure to keep homeowners warm on the coldest of nights. A sun-filled three-seasons room creates an ideal place for enjoying a good book, while the large covered patio and backyard provide endless opportunities for summer entertainment.
Down the carpeted hallway, two bedrooms and a guest bath reside. In the large bedroom, dual Dark Cherry closet doors conveniently hide professional organizational systems. In one bedroom, the ceiling features a dark-toned ceiling fan; the other bedroom’s bright flush mount lighting makes it ideal for a home office. The guest bath, naturally lit by a transom window, contains an undermount sink, granite countertop and oil-rubbed bronze fixtures. A spectacular tile floor with a sparkling finish completes the space.
The master bedroom greets you with natural light from several windows, including two square windows on either side of the bed. A traditional ceiling fan rests in the tray ceiling, while recessed lighting frames the outside of the tray. Plush carpet and Dark Cherry trim are found throughout the master suite, following suit with the rest of the home. Inside the spacious well-lit walk-in closet is an organizational system complete with shelves and plenty of space for apparel and shoes.
In the master bath, large natural-looking stone tile pairs well with Poplar millwork and granite countertops. Two ornate mirrors sit atop two oil-rubbed bronze faucets, while plenty of cabinet storage rests beneath the dual sink vanity. Most of the walk-in shower is tiled with a large, earthy-brown tile. Brown, green and crystal tones are used in a vertical pattern on the shower wall, as well as on the shelf units that complete the luxurious shower.
A laundry room and mechanical room sit off the kitchen, near the three-stall garage. In addition to housing the furnace and water heater, the mechanical room serves as an on-site storm shelter. Thick concrete walls ensure the one-level villa is as safe as ever when the spring storms roll through.
This custom-built villa proves you don’t have to sacrifice style for function. An open floor plan, quality craftmanship and maintenance-free living are just a few of the many features that make this home a winner.
