Red bricks, wood steps and towering oaks give this traditional Granite Bay beauty great curb appeal and a look you are sure to love. Walk through the home’s stain-ed glass door and see its front rooms that showcase tradition at its finest. Rich colored walls contrast with wainscoting. Natural oak flooring, custom ceilings and traditional light fixtures make formal settings of both living and dining room, and the more casual family room includes a vaulted ceiling, traditional brick fireplace with hearth and wood mantel, and a drop-down ceiling fan and lighting.
Several areas of the home have been updated, including the kitchen that offers light maple cabinets and granite surfaces in gray with hints of peach and taupe. The kitchen includes a Bosch dishwasher, built-in micro-wave, a five-burner cook top, dual sinks, a compactor, oven, stainless hood and even a warming oven in the pantry. The kitchen also has a bay window that provides bucolic views to the outdoors. The space is outfitted with a Viking wine refrigerator and pewter hardware, giving the room a highly custom feel.
The master in this home has been updated as well and includes travertine tile floors and private access to the backyard, plus views to the pool and greenery beyond. The master has a large travertine-faced fireplace with a hearth and a bath that includes a sunken tub and separate shower, dual vanities and an oversized closet with two distinct areas.
The guest bath has been updated and features 18-inch travertine tiles, dual vanities and surfaces in black and taupe granite. Extensive built-ins in bathrooms and hallways offer ample storage in the nearly 3,200-square-foot home. This great family home has an additional oversized bath that offers backyard access and this room also has ample storage. In addition, there is a changing room and bath area that is accessed from the pool and patio from the outdoor deck.
The front bedroom has vaulted ceilings, dual fans and the space is ideal for a game room. A large finished storage space, accessed through the closet, is a great location for home theater equipment, as well.
The backyard is perfect for any family, offering drought-friendly native plants such as oak and ivy, and a large pool lined with decorative tile with a matching hot tub. The patio is oversized, with both covered and sunny areas and pebble walking paths meander through the towering trees. The side yard is large enough to include a dog run, as well.
This home has a great location, near Folsom Lake and schools, and the interior is bright with wood blinds, ceiling fans and outstanding features throughout.
