Open House Reveals Ideal Model Home

My boyfriend Scott and I recently went to see a model home in a new neighborhood close to where we live. He had actually been a handful of times already, but whenever we wanted to go together – it was not an open-house weekend. We are not exactly ready to start actively looking, but this home has all the things we are both looking for and then some.

The kitchen is part of an open floor plan on the main level, flanked by a dining area and across from the living space. Ample cabinets and a nice, big island with seating run circles around the kitchen we have now. And the island, countertop and backsplash break up the never-ending white that seems to be so popular these days.

To the back left of the kitchen is a mud room space that leads to the outdoors, and on the other side is a large pantry. The more casual dining space is lit up with an expanse of windows, while a smaller, more elegant dining room is closer to the front door for more intimate gatherings. I didn’t take a photo of that space because there were potential buyers in there meeting with real estate agents, but I loved that the table was round with arm chair-style seating.

The master bath on the second floor features his-and-hers vanities on either side of the space, as well as a huge soaking tub and a shower big enough for multiple people to sit in. I am not usually a “tub” person, but this one looked very inviting, and I loved that it was near the windows for natural light.

The basement level was decked out with an entertainment space with a wraparound couch, a bar and a bistro table for two. All in all, the space was perfect. There was even a home office/library as soon as you walked in the door. I might change a color here and there – I do like my color – but I wouldn’t have to make many changes too soon. I wonder who the designer was?
