KW Signature Homes, 5245 Vintage Lane
Traditional design with rustic appeal reigns at the KW Signature home at 5245 Vintage Lane in Vintage Estates on Billings West End. Starting with the rough-sawn timber post and beam entry and the KW signature vertical-horizontal combination siding, this home is all about comfortable elegance.
Enter the home via the classic center foyer and step into an open-concept living/dining/kitchen. Anchoring the right side of this space, the custom kitchen is truly the heart of this home. With a sage-green bead board-covered island and apron-front farmhouse sink as centerpieces, the kitchen defines farmhouse chic. Cream-colored subway tiles dress up the backsplash while stainless steel high-end appliances and stove hood do the heavy work. A custom-build art niche, complete with lighting from above, showcases the homeowners’ favorites within the kitchen space.
Cabinets and wide baseboards painted in cream throughout the home give a subtle traditional feel while clear, chic lighting, particularly over the sink, island and dining area, tease the traditional elements into being not-so-serious. Near the garage entrance, an efficient laundry room with utility sink and large reach-in pantry add functionality.
While blue-green iridescent tiles on the vertical draw attention to the dual-sided gas fireplace that anchors the living area, another treasure lies outside the patio doors. The covered patio runs more than half the length of the home and connects to the master suite. Stamped, stained concrete and the cultured stone that mirrors the front of the home and frames the see-thru fireplace, add rustic elegance to this outdoor room that is sure to be used on a regular basis—even on chilly autumn nights.
In the master bedroom, a trio of square windows brings in light while allowing privacy, and a feminine chandelier continues that classy feeling. The master bath is truly custom-designed with separate sinks—his set center and hers off-set left to allow a makeup area—and a two-headed corner shower.
The main floor includes two more bedrooms with a shared bath. Downstairs features another full bath and bedroom with a walk-in closet, a home theater in the center, in addition to an efficient mother-in-law suite complete with its own bath and walk-in closet. According to Jim Kisling, builder, the homeowners enjoy a good glass of wine and so they decided to add a small wine-tasting room that can be closed off by a sliding barn door—a tie-in to farmhouse chic style upstairs.
