Who does new construction like this anymore? It's absolutely stunning, and a perfect fit for this neighborhood full of large older homes.
The porte cochere and carriage house are great exterior elements that add to the charm. (The carriage house is actually the only part of the property that is original, and is now undergoing renovations.)
But the best part was that when I walked into the kitchen, I was greeted with the kitchen I have been dreaming of—and planning! although, yes, on a much, much smaller scale!
Hello, taupe cabinets! This is my color scheme. And Shaker-style door too.
I am loving the softness of the cabinet color, even more than my choice. May have to switch, yet again.
How about those windows?
And because I couldn't stop taking photos, this is the family room off the kitchen, which leads down to the basement family room. Again, the size of the windows is just stunning. And the windows let in a ton of light downstairs too, which makes it really not feel like it's underground.
More windows! These rooms are going to be bright even on the darkest days. I seriously want to move in. And this home is only going to get better. Stay tuned for a real house tour when it's complete, sometime in June.
