The Hills of Spring Creek community sits among rolling hills and history, making it a perfect backdrop to our Fall 2022 Parade of Homes Twin Cities entry. Paying homage to the landscape, this beautiful new home boasts expansive views at every turn to take in the storied surroundings of this carefully chosen neighborhood location.
The four-seasons porch sits out from the rest of the home, placing you in a space that feels like it’s floating over the property. Further creating a space that feels open and airy is the vaulted bright ceiling, accented by deep walnut beams and trim. Anchored to one side is a grand fireplace with a stone veneer in tones that are neutral and comforting. If ever there was a room that gives the ambiance of an elegant and sophisticated tree house, this would be it.
The history of The Hills of Spring Creek is on full display when you step out of the four-seasons porch and onto the open deck on the backside of the home. The soft gray finish beneath your feet compliments your unobstructed views of the sky above while the carefully chosen deep color of the banisters harkens to the wooded landscape beyond. This space begs to be filled with a generous lounge area to enjoy the scenery during the day and quiet star-gazing at night.
Stepping back inside, the large open kitchen has every amenity you’d wish for: stainless steel energy-efficient appliances; ample kitchen island with a built-in sink; high-end range; beautiful ceramic backsplash; and thoughtful storage. Its well-lit, bright palette with rich natural wood tones communicates a perfect example of transitional style.
Tucked just behind the kitchen is a butler’s pantry that houses more conveniences and storage. It’s a perfect space to keep additional serving ware and linens. The pantry also has a secondary sink for an optimal highly functional complimentary space.
This home features plenty of space to slow down and appreciate your surroundings. The sitting area just off of the kitchen presents another stone fireplace, as well as vaulted ceilings, beautiful landscape views, and a large but unobtrusive chandelier.
Follow the stairs to the ground level and you’ll notice that centered within the stately wet bar area is a picture box window that frames the landscape like a work of art. Custom storage with open shelving, wine storage, and a place for everything creates a presence in the living area that makes it a focal piece that offers a simply divine space to mix your favorite cocktail.
Speaking of the living area, the ground-level family room features an entire wall outfitted with custom built-in shelving and a luxurious electric fireplace. The natural wood tones are carried throughout to make the room feel warm and welcoming.
The primary bathroom features yet another picture box window that brings in a brilliant amount of natural light that bounces around the space thanks to the polished marble floor. The bold veining throughout the marble coordinates beautifully with the bright white of the freestanding tub and vanity with the dark tone of the stone countertops. Past the partition near the tub is a spacious walk-in shower that features the same bold marble.
As you continue through the bathroom, you’ll find an open dressing room with mounds of storage and room to comfortably get ready for and unwind from the day. An added luxury convenience is the connected laundry room that offers more storage, a sink, and stylish ceramic tile flooring.
