kitchen and living areas.

 

Superb craftsmanship and exceptional attention to details are depicted throughout this 1,963-square-foot home with fine touches and luxurious finishes.

 

This home showcases soaring ceilings with recessed lighting and beautiful double crown molding, gleaming five-and-a-half-inch wide oak floor boards in a brown stain, and beautifully detailed window and door casings. Interior doors are prettily trimmed with contemporary hardware.

 

Tia Zaferakis of Jack Conway Cityside has listed this gorgeous three-bedroom and two-bath condo for $1,250,000.

 

Another noticeable asset is how the home lives in the impressive design. The capacious size and configuration of the open floor plan that is almost L-shaped allows for multiple uses and then within that - furniture placement.

 

The living area, anchored by a gas fireplace with a floating wood mantel on a silver travertine polished tile wall on one side and a custom- designed dry bar with two Danby beverage coolers on the opposite wall, sits within the longer L shaped space.

 

Full glass sliders open to a large and private Trex deck that has room for various seating arrangements, broadening the entertaining possibilities.

 

The remainder of this elongated section that is “open” to the kitchen/dining area also has multiple uses, including extending the “living room” and/or creating a library/study.

 

To top off this grand space is the classy kitchen/dining nook (the shorter section of the L). Quartz is the stone of choice for countertops as well as the lengthy center island with a waterfall style countertop that accommodates five stools comfortably. Statement-making pendant lighting over the island is both practical and pretty.

 

The mosaic marble tile backsplash in an eye-catching herringbone pattern accents an abundance of white Shaker-style cabinetry. Under-mount lighting adds sparkle in this haven for chefs - gourmet or not.

 

Thermador appliances include a six-burner, commercial-grade gas range with a striking architectural hood plus a microwave drawer. The large refrigerator has a bottom freezer.

 

The festive feasting field, with another large windowed door with side lights, can seat a minimum of six-to-eight people comfortably at practically any shaped table: round, rectangular or square. Adding a hutch/china cabinet/ server is very doable.

 

Given the thoughtful planning regarding layout, it’s not surprising that the same consideration was applied to practical elements such as storage. In addition to a pantry closet, this home has knee wall storage, a single closet and another walk-in. That doesn’t count what’s in the bedrooms.

 

Another bonus is that buyers will receive a $2,000 credit for customizing.

 

The in-unit laundry facility (a stackable Electrolux full-size washer and dryer) is an added convenience.

 

Privacy is another hallmark in this home. The hallway to the bedrooms is long and wide, providing excellent separation from the public spaces.

 

A queen-size bed fits comfortably in the guest bedroom that also has a lighted double closet with an overhead cupboard. Two well-proportioned windows (these are two-over-two) insure that this room always has ample natural light.

 

What you see in the sizable guest bathroom – a gorgeous tile surround in the shower/tub ensemble – is complemented by equally luxurious non-visuals such as radiant heated Italian Carrara marble tile flooring. This loo also has two sinks in a long vanity with a quartz countertop.

 

A huge walk-in closet that can easily claim room-size status raises the expectation bar about a master suite that doesn’t disappoint.

 

A large three-window bay is another focal point in the king-bed size sleeping chamber that also has an alcove big enough for a mini-office.

 

Double crown molding, detailed bump boards and hardwood flooring are touches of traditional elegance in this peaceful getaway.

 

Luxury rules in the en suite bathroom from the marble floor in a classic basket-weave pattern to the thoroughly modern and oversized step-in shower with a Delta Multi-Choice Pulsator and built-in bench. Glass tile in the surround sparkles through the frameless glass enclosure. The double vanity with twin sinks provides more than sufficient elbow room while radiant heat flooring offers extra comfort for the feet.

 

Two-car (side-by-side) deeded parking is a bonus. Access is easy, too. It’s just one flight of stairs from the car to the “back” (dining area) door and a handy covered stoop.
