Luxurious. Spacious. Luminous, even. These words don’t even begin to describe the attractions of the Argent, a contemporary prairie home boasting more than 3,000 square feet of living space. Its regal porte-cochere entrance is designed to extend out over a driveway.
Two lofty doors swing open into a 13-foot-high foyer. Straight ahead, two sets of columns frame the entrance to a living room with a wide-hearthed fireplace. Den and dining room are to the left and right. All three of these rooms also have 13-foot ceilings, and windows fill most of their exterior walls.
Well-buffered from the family living areas, the sumptuous owners’ suite serves as a quiet adult retreat. Luxury amenities here include a 10-foot coffered ceiling, two large walk-in closets, and a skylit owners’ bath with twin vanities, oversized shower, private toilet, and elevated soaking tub. Double doors at the rear open onto a columned covered patio.
Everyday life centers on the skylit kitchen and vaulted family room. A long eating counter provides partial separation, and a fireplace adds cheer and warmth when skies turn dark. Other kitchen amenities include: a huge work island, walk-in pantry, built-in desk, and a plant shelf over the eating bar.
A nook with a built-in booth nestles into a sunny corner overlooking the Argent’s patio, and a media room with an entertainment center is to the right. Utilities are close to both the kitchen and the secondary bedrooms, which share a two-section bathroom.
