Beauty is in the details

Sunday, June 11, 2006

From the sidewalk leading to the front columned porch to the privacy patio in the backyard, conscientious attention to detail at this 120-by-100 property in the Cedar Meadows subdivision is apparent.

With vinyl siding and brick front, this three-bedroom ranch with two full baths has a Jackson address, close proximity to Fruitland and benefits for families.

Entrance through a beveled-edge, inlaid-glass door with sidelights leads to the living room with nearby coat closet.

Hardwood flooring in the living room, dining room and hallway along with 9-foot ceilings throughout add elegance. Carpeting in the bedrooms, closets and stairway to the basement add comfort.

Details that set this home above others are in the efficient insulation and selection of high-end cabinetry, faucets and distinctive lighting fixtures made by the builder. All ceiling fans operate by remote control, closets are lit and have shelving installed and smoke detectors are in place throughout. Interior doors are of unique and tasteful design.

The master bedroom exemplifies this in its tastefully designed 16-by-13-foot tray ceiling complete with crown molding and ambient lighting. Adjoining bath has a whirlpool bath and walk in shower.

Bathroom vanity countertops are of classic marble. Ceramic window sill and tile around tub area are placed with foresight in longevity, protecting against water damage while upgrading interior design.

The kitchen has recessed lighting with a window above the sink and rolled edge laminate Formica. A Frigidaire stainless steel dishwasher, microwave and range make a great combination with Merillat Spring Valley cherry series cabinets. Cabinets include a pantry and lazy susan. Space for decorative storage above the cabinets invites the personal touch. Refrigerator is negotiable with builder. Counter seating at the kitchen overflows into the dining room for extra seating.

The nearby utility room houses a sink and cabinet with space ready for a washer and dryer. Access to the fully insulated, heated and cooled two-car extended garage from the utility room makes multi-tasking convenient for busy families. Extra space and amenities give the garage potential as a future work shop.

The full, unfinished basement is negotiable for finishing. Ceilings are eight-foot, ductwork in place, roughed in plumbing.
