The harmonious floor plan flows to the exquisite kitchen that showcases the best of contemporary culinary design with glossy light quartz counters, premium stainless appliances, abundant crisp white & rich gray cabinetry, and a gleaming gray glass backsplash for a distinctive touch. A lengthy peninsula island is excellent for casual dining and the seamlessly connected adjacent space can be used as a family room or eat-in breakfast area, or both!  The mid-century’s quintessential globe pendant lights grace the ceilings and attractively illuminate the interior.

 

The sizable primary en suite offers open beam ceilings, a wall of glass with sliding doors that directly accesses the covered patio to easily extend relaxing activities to the outdoors.  Keep the doors open on warm evenings for soothing cooling breezes. The split primary bath is the epitome of polish with striking large seaglass green subway tiles in the walk-in shower “wet” area and a separate inset integrated trough sink vanity with 2 faucets. A custom walk-in closet with a full-length mirror, and coveted Elfa closet system can organize a fashionable wardrobe. The hallway is lined in opaque glass that makes moving through the space feel a bit magical. The additional 3 serene bedrooms are all at the end of the hall. The luminous lustered look continues in the second bathroom with a hip vessel sink, marble/mirror clad walls, marble-inspired tile flooring & centrally situated in the hall for enhanced comfort.  A conveniently placed laundry nook with cabinetry adds to the functionality of this thoughtful floor plan.

Foam roofs offer superior insulation, they reflect UV rays which result in less heating required in the winters, and less cooling in the summer. 715 Butternut has two layers of foam roof. Installed in 2013 by Abril Roofing.
