Award-winning home builder and designer, Rallis Construction, has built another quality one-of-a-kind home in Harrisburg, South Dakota. Privately nestled amongst established trees, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom walk-out ranch is perfect for any family wanting to live outside the hustle and bustle of the city. Natural boulder retaining walls, trees and shrubbery along with elevated gardens add to the relaxing rural feel. Authentic stone highlights cement board siding and mingles with board and batten siding. Peaks and an abundance of windows add to the Arts and Crafts design, as does the detailed timber entry.
The Craftsman foyer opens into the great room, which boasts a vaulted hand textured ceiling and rich wood flooring. Three large windows overlook the backyard and allow maximum natural light into the open floor plan. A stacked stone and barn wood double-sided gas fireplace sits opposite custom built-ins, separating the living space from the dining area. Sliders lead outside to the large low-maintenance synthetic deck that walks down to the patio below.
The Rallis Construction home, designed for entertaining, features a gourmet kitchen perfect for any home chef. An abundance of custom stained and painted cabinetry offers storage space for the cook’s tools and appliances, as does the hidden walk-in pantry. A sizable window in front of the deep sunken sink allows for plenty of sunlight. A darker toned glass subway tile backsplash blends in beautifully with a cream patterned granite countertop and black stainless steel appliances. Three rustic industrial pendants hang above the oversized island, illuminating the gorgeous kitchen. The island – stylishly stained grey – adds prep, storage and seating for a Monday night family dinner or a Friday night adult dinner party.
The main floor laundry area is fashionably convenient. Natural light flows through the mudroom, which features stylish, custom cabinetry lockers, hooks and granite seating. The accessible mudroom is located just inside the oversized three-stall garage – a convenient space of its own. The fully finished, fully insulated garage provides in-floor heat, hot and cold water, and trench floor drains.
The spacious master suite is all about relaxation from the day. Rich gray paint adorns the walls, and a luxurious light gray carpet is underfoot. A private door to the deck allows for secluded quiet time, as does the spa-like bathroom. The bathroom is equipped with all the desired extras you could wish for. Dual furniture-style vanities feature dark Arts and Crafts cabinetry, sleek black hardware, dark granite countertops and bevel framed mirrors. The walk-in shower is a piece of art; dark subway vertical tiles create a sharp edge next to the natural marble-patterned oversized vertical tile. A premium shower system, shelving, seating and a pebbled floor round out this peaceful sanctuary. The master suite truly offers everything any homeowner would need to escape and unwind.
Rallis Construction has left the home expansion potential up to the homeowners, allowing for 1,800 plus square feet of unfinished basement. The living area could be finished to include a huge family room, office, bathroom, wet bar, and storm shelter. There is space to add two additional guest bedrooms downstairs, making a total of four possible guest bedrooms in the home. The home offers plenty of room for a growing family or for friends and family to visit.

For over forty years, the Rallis family has been building beautiful custom homes throughout the Midwest.
