Located on the east side of Sioux Falls, this open floor plan home has no detail overlooked. G.A. Johnson Construction has built a sprawling three bedroom and two bathroom home perfect for any family.
The exterior of the home offers a clean and classic look, featuring a gabled neutral exterior of stacked stone and stucco with Craftsman detailing in the garage doors and lantern lighting. A concrete covered porch and large windows, including a stylish transom above the solid wood door, give a warm welcome to friends and family.
Once inside the entry, which showcases a modern barrel metallic light fixture, you are struck by the open feel of the spacious rooms. The living room is flooded with natural light from the large four panel windows. A floor-to-ceiling stone gas fireplace with rich wood mantel is flanked by open floating shelving and custom cabinetry. The room’s trey ceiling with geometrically positioned beams makes for a great architectural focal piece.
G.A. Johnson’s bright and airy eat-in kitchen continues the warm hues of the home with wood floors, custom stained cabinetry, glass subway tile backsplash, and granite countertops. The floor-to-ceiling cabinetry with glass front display doors allows for maximum storage and accessibility for any home chef. With modern amenities such as pull out drawers, slide out pot storage and superior stainless steel appliances, making a family meal is no chore. Teardrop glass pendants light the large island with cooktop. The extra space and storage of the island, walk-in pantry, and built-in buffet allows for uninterrupted entertaining while cooking. The kitchen transitions into the dining room, which is bathed in natural light from numerous windows. Sliders to the covered and screened-in deck provide access to the backyard and lower patio.
Another space appreciated by busy families and homeowners is the drop zone. Just off the three-car garage is a practical mudroom with seating. Cabinets and drawers offer plenty of storage space for everyday clutter and gear. The laundry area is also home to custom cabinets, a sink, and space dedicated to hanging clothes.
The master bedroom is located on the other side of the upper level. With its trey ceiling and wood molding, the master bedroom provides a relaxed, modern rest from the world. Windows flank the romantic bed, giving off plenty of natural light. The spa-like feel of the master bath continues the “retreat from everyday” feel. Dual sinks, separated by drawers, sit beside a linen cabinet and allow for privacy and a quick morning routine. Tile flooring continues into the walk-in glass enclosed shower featuring a seat and glass tile accents. A generous walk-in closet adds more valuable space.
G.A. Johnson Construction finished the upper level with two sizable carpeted bedrooms that share a full bathroom. The team finished this classic home with a modern twist by providing an unfinished walk-out basement – perfect for any growing family to expand living or entertaining amenities.
