Welcome to this stunning home in the new Stone Pointe development. This 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom ranch walk out, built by Smith Development Company, is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in one of the newest developments in Southeast Sioux Falls. The home’s exterior is designed with natural stone and dark earthy tones, and is complemented by the mature trees that frame the lot. With 1,778 square feet on the main floor and an oversized three-stall garage, this home has all the bells and whistles you would expect.
Upon entering the home, your eyes are immediately drawn to the gorgeous fireplace with mantle and floor-to-ceiling natural stone hearth. The fireplace, framed by two large picture windows, is certainly the focal point of the family room. The open floor plan and 11 foot ceilings provide an abundance of natural light. The recessed lighting and hickory engineered hardwood floors deliver a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Passing by the open staircase that leads to the unfinished lower level, the decorative spindles provide a stunning contrast to the truffle finish handrail and elegant chandelier lighting. Down the hallway and to the right is the main floor laundry with handy built-in lockers and a mudroom. The space is very practical, yet there is no shortage of unique details. Smith Development Company has made this space one that will ease the mess from those rainy, muddy, or snowy days.
The remarkable kitchen offers many stunning upgrades, including a large pantry and slate appliances. Dark Knotty Alder cabinets with molding on top, lovely granite countertops, and a dark undermount Blanco sink are just some of the features that make this such an impressive kitchen. The large island and separate dining area offer enough space for the whole family. Off the dining area is a large deck, finished with beautiful wrought iron spindles. The deck offers a fantastic view of the large backyard, which holds endless possibilities of its own.
Back inside, the master suite is bright, warm, and inviting. With a tray ceiling and large windows, you truly feel as if you are in your own retreat. A door in the master bedroom leads back out to the deck, perfect for early morning coffee or watching the sunset in the evening. In the master bathroom, the Knotty Alder doors and poplar trim complement the entire space. The walk-in tiled shower with a detailed accent design is a beautiful counterpart to the luxurious heated porcelain tile floor. An Onyx dual sink vanity and large cabinets complete the bathroom space. Smith Development Company has left nothing to chance with this master retreat.
Between the lot, design, and amenities, it’s no surprise that this home was a 2015 Fall Parade of Homes Award of Excellence winner. This home truly showcases the quality of work that Smith Development Company puts into each project. Smith Development Company was formed four years ago by Tom Smith. Tom has worked in homebuilding and masonry for 35 years and has passed his skills down to his two sons, Brady and Brent. The team focuses on developing, building, and remodeling homes in the Sioux Falls area.
