This attractive 2324-square foot Sweet Grass Village home combines high quality, efficiency and convenience. Its cream-colored Hardie Plank fiber cement siding has the look of natural cedar but resists rotting, fire, fading and insect damage. The home’s covered front porch faces east for sunrise views, while its spacious rear deck affords sunset views over the mountains.
The entry opens into a great room with oak flooring and recessed lighting. The living area on the left features a propane fireplace with a TV hookup over the mantel, and French doors opening onto the deck. The kitchen on the right has attractive Uba Tuba granite counters. A natural Brazilian rock composed of quartz and mica, Uba Tuba is dark green with small flecks of white, gold and turquoise. The custom-made cherry cabinetry includes two pantries with self-closing drawers. The double stainless steel sink is extra deep and has a disposal. Appliances include an LG refrigerator with a freezer drawer, a Whirlpool electric range and microwave, and an extra-quiet Bosch dishwasher. The separate dining room has oak flooring and double doors.
A tiled hallway leads to the master suite, laundry room, a second full bath, and the garage.
The master bedroom has oak floors, two walk-in closets and a ceiling fan, and it opens directly to the deck. The master bath has a tiled shower with a built-in seat, a custom vanity with a granite counter and porcelain sink, and custom-built shelving for linens. The master suite and the great room have rheostat-controlled lighting.
The second full bath has a shower-tub and a custom vanity with a granite counter and porcelain sink.
The laundry room has a large capacity Whirlpool washer and dryer and a utility sink.
Two additional bedrooms and a shared tile bathroom with a shower-tub are on the opposite side of the home. The bedrooms have oak flooring; one has an east exposure and the other a west exposure. The shared bath has separate vanity areas featuring the same custom cherry cabinetry with granite counters and porcelain sinks.
The elevated deck is constructed of Trex, a low-maintenance composite decking material. The deck is partially covered and has recessed lighting. The deck overlooks a grassy common area with a gazebo, a fire pit and a walking path. There are two enclosed storage/utility areas below the deck and house.
The finished, extra-large garage includes a spacious upstairs bonus room accessed via an oak staircase in the home. This room is large enough to accommodate a pool or ping-pong table, and curvilinear track lighting adds interest to the space.
