Feature Home provides room for a family to relax

October 02, 2005

Looking for a house where you and your family have room to stretch out and enjoy life in a relaxed atmosphere? This week's HomeSource Feature Home might be the one for you.

With its large first-floor great room and open kitchen plan, the two-story Williamsburg-style colonial located in stylish Fountainhead North is great for family evenings together or for entertaining.

Custom cherry cabinetry and a fireplace make the great room cozy in spite of its large (26-by-13) size. The kitchen, which includes custom-designed cabinets and vanities, features a spacious breakfast nook for informal dining. The nook offers views of the expansive wood deck and beautifully landscaped backyard.

The more formal living room and dining room include chair railings, and there's the attractive touch of a bay window in the dining room. Custom oak hardwood floors cover the entire house, with the exception of the baths and the ceramic kitchen floor.


To ensure that grime doesn't get tracked onto those floors, there's a first-floor laundry and mud room area with storage closet that conveniently exits to the garage and the deck. The oversized two-car garage includes a lawn equipment area and a service door.

Upstairs are four generously sized bedrooms complemented by a beautiful foyer sitting area. The master suite is designed for convenience with a separate dressing area and walk-in closet. The bath area features a separate shower and large whirlpool soaking tub, a linen cabinet, Corian sinktop and ceramic tile floor. A full hall bath also serves the upstairs rooms, and there's a half-bath on the main floor.

A fully finished, carpeted game room in the lower level provides enough space for anything from a billiards table to a Super Bowl party.

This home's quality doesn't end with the interior details. The exterior is finished with colonial beaded siding with low-maintenance aluminum fascias and vinyl soffits. The front porch is brick cased with brick steps to grade and wooden colonial railings and posts. A brick sidewalk runs from the driveway to the porch.

The large, professionally landscaped corner lot adds to the home's aesthetic appeal. Trees provide privacy for outdoor entertaining in the spacious backyard.

The site offers convenient access to Interstate 81 and several shopping areas. It's located in the Paramount Elementary School district.

If you'd like to tour this absolutely immaculate home, you're welcome to attend an open house Sunday, Oct. 2, from 2 to 4 p.m. Cathy Wantz of Real Estate Today will be glad to show you the details. If you can't make the open house, give Cathy a call at 301-791-9046.
