English Country House
The lovely brick home located at 12200 Red Rose Way is reminiscent of a charming English country house. An arched entryway invites you through double doors into the dark hardwood floored foyer. The arches are repeated as you enter the comfortably elegant living room with crown molding and many custom touches.
The rambling home offers flexible living space with both casual and formal living and dining areas. The spacious family room features a brick fireplace and built-in cabinetry. There is another brick fireplace in the warm and cozy informal dining area off the gourmet kitchen. It is a perfect space to enjoy morning coffee or an informal family meal.
Abundant dark wood custom cabinetry with black granite countertops is featured in the cook’s kitchen. The casual breakfast bar flanks the cooking area. A commercial Viking stove, warming drawers, stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator and wine cooler outfit the fabulous kitchen. There is a farmhouse-style sink that adds to the charm. Brick flooring completes the appeal. This gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream come true!
There are four generous bedrooms including a master suite with dueling custom showers and designer tile in a luxurious master bath. Additional bedrooms feature built-in cabinetry, shelves or wainscoting and large closets. Three total bathrooms accommodate this spacious family home located on 0.43 acres.
The large fenced backyard showcases a beautiful pool, grass lawn, play area with a covered outdoor dining area. There is even a treehouse!
Renovations made to the 3,564-square-foot home include a new tile roof, LED lighting, updated plumbing fixtures, whole house fan, Milgard windows, block wall and new pool equipment with a variable speed pump. These upgrades were performed in 2014.
