Brown Builders - 214 Feldspar Way
With a warm, Tuscan-inspired interior and large, outdoor living area, this custom West End home is perfect for entertaining family and friends in every season.
Surrounded by fresh air and farmland, the rustically-elegant home at 214 Feldspar Way feels miles away from stress of the city, yet is mere minutes from shopping, entertainment and the central business district.
Inside, the warmth of the Italian countryside is infused throughout. Terracotta-washed walls, dark hardwood flooring and beautiful, hand-crafted knotty alder trim and doors create a sumptuous backdrop to the main living area. The great room boasts a stunning fireplace framed by large windows with views to the outdoor living area and landscaped yard beyond. Opposite the great room, the kitchen has custom knotty alder cabinetry, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances. The bi-level, quartz-topped kitchen island has a double-sided, stainless steel farm sink on one side with a breakfast bar for casual dining on the other. Across from the kitchen, the formal dining area can easily accommodate larger number of guests.
From the great room, a short hallway leads to two sizeable bedrooms and a full bath plus an elegant master suite with a private bath. Awash in natural light, the master bedroom features a large bank of windows beautifully trimmed in knotty alder. “All of our trim is custom-milled on site,” said Todd Brown.
Off the master, the en suite bathroom provides a spa-like retreat. Tiled in shades of mocha, rust, crème and tan, the room features a large soaking tub, dual sinks and an oversized walk-in shower. “What you don’t see in the shower floor is a drain,” Brown said. “The floor of the shower slopes slightly allowing water to exit through an almost hidden side drain along the base of the wall.” Two separate walk-in closets complete the master suite.
On the opposite end of the house, the spacious laundry room and half bath connect to a fully finished, four-car garage. For those who want even more space for vehicles, recreational gear and shop projects, the home also features a separate, fully-finished 1,200 square foot shop with an oversized overhead door.
The family room in the lower level of this home was designed for fun and games with a built-in shuffleboard floor, regulation pool table, dartboard area plus a full-wired media area for watching movies or playing computer games. Refreshments can be served from the wet bar that has a refrigerator and counter seating to one side. Tucked away from the family room are two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom and a sauna with tongue and groove cedar walls and a cork floor. There is also a vault room that can be a repository for valuables as well as a place for the family to retreat for safety.
