The Laurelwood is an upscale transitional home. Its gabled dormers, multipaned windows, and column-like posts hark back to yesteryear, while the custom brick work, hipped roof, and intriguingly arched windows are more modern.
With more than 6,000 square feet of indoor living space, this is a large home. Entering, you step into a wide and vaulted foyer with a transverse stairway ascending in front. To the right, an arched opening leads into a bright and spacious vaulted living room with a fireplace. Around the stairs to the left is a short bookshelf and closet-lined hallway that feeds into the kitchen after passing a vaulted sewing room and a media room.
Working at the roomy kitchen’s windowed corner sink, you have a panoramic view of the patio and rear yard. A conversation bar rims one side of the large central work island, and a raised eating bar separates the kitchen from the sun-washed nook. Counters, cabinets and built-in appliances wrap around four sides, and an exceptionally large pantry is recessed behind one of them. Sliding glass doors in the nook offer easy access to a covered and partially vaulted patio that spans much of the rear.
Situated between the Laurelwood’s kitchen and living room, the dining room can be reached from either room by passing through arched openings. Double doors in the living room lead into a vaulted office, while another arched opening nearby takes you to an extra-large utility room, a guest powder room, and the vaulted owners’ suite.
The owners’ suite boasts a luxurious bathroom with a spa tub, oversized shower, twin vanities, and totally private toilet. Two more bedrooms are upstairs, along with a loft, recreation room, bathroom, and plenty of storage.
