Sterling – Brave New House

“You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.” – William Faulkner

Building a new home takes courage.  It takes guts, perseverance and patience.  It takes vision and creativity.  With this transitional home, Sterling (C-2677), by Living Concepts, there is vision and verve, creativity and beauty, guts and glory.   All you just need to bring your best because this house brings it to you.  With 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in 2,677 square feet, there is room for one, there is room for a family.  There is room for whatever makes you happy.

This traditional home with hipped roof lines (roof lines that look like ‘panels’ that come together at the top to a peak), gables (roof line that peaks like a triangle) and with arched, multi-paned windows, you’re sure to be willing and ready to settle here.  The visual appeal of this home already screams HOME.

Large front widows and a wide, arching doorway entry will entice you inside.


From your double-door entry to the foyer, a closet for coats and umbrellas is on your left.  A dining room with a double-tray ceiling is to your right.  Your grand room with a wet bar, fireplace, and double doors to your back terrace offers many memory-making opportunities for years to come.

Start Here

Into your grand room you’ll find the perfect space for a piano, formal seating/living room area or a multi-functional entertaining room.  With a fireplace and wet bar, this is a wonderful space to welcome guests and family – or yourself for every reason.  Have a party, serve drinks and hors d-oeuvres here.  Put a game table in a corner, comfortable couches and chairs in front of the fireplace, artwork on the long back wall and build shelves to the left of the fireplace.  Multi-purpose indeed!

Keep Going

Through the double doors of the grand room, walk out to your large, long terrace.  This is ideal for al fresco dining for every meal.  Set up your grill and outdoor kitchen.  There is room for lounging chaise chairs and naps in the sun too.  Include pots of herbs and flowers for peaceful, happy outdoor times.  If you have room in the yard, this is terrace would make a great border to a swimming pool.  Your vision….your courage.  Go for it.

Time to Rest

From the back terrace, there are two ‘bump out’, bayed, windowed rooms to the house.  Looking at the house from the back, to your right is a door to your sitting room in the master suite. This bayed windowed space will be just where you want to sit and read.  The tray ceiling will give you rest and energy at the end of a day.  Be bold, this space is your harbor.  Double doors lead you to a dreamy master bath.  Separate vanities ensure you won’t deal with sharing with someone else.  A large soaking tub sits under another bright bayed-out window.  A separate shower is next to the tub.  Put spa features and a waterproof radio in here for a Good Morning to your day.  Your walk-in closet is huge.  It is on the front wall of the house and plenty of room for an island with drawers and a hanging light.  The outer perimeter of this space can accommodate double hanging rods for clothes or shelves for your shoes and handbags.

Time to Eat

Down the hall from your master suite,  head to your kitchen and keeping room.  Your kitchen has a perfect layout for entertaining.  A real bonus is a walk-in pantry.  Cookbooks?  Do you can veggies?  Cleaning supplies?  Perfect in here.  Your kitchen offers a long L-shape and plenty of counter space.  A large island for barstool seating adds great space too.  There is a second fireplace in here.  Like the grand room, install shelving for books, travel souvenirs, art glass and perhaps a music station. A table for morning newspaper scanning and your coffee is waiting for you.  Your dining room adds seating for more formal entertaining. If you don’t need a formal dining space, consider making this area your office.

Time to Entertain

Whether you are entertaining or have kids at home, 2 suites with their own bathrooms are on the right side of the home.  One suite has a walk-in closet, the other a double-door opening reach-in.  Both bathrooms in each room have a single vanity sink and shower.  Adding a bench to the shower adds ease and comfort to those of any age.  Either of these suites can be your craft room, office or exercise room too.

Time to Grow

From your keeping room and 2nd bedroom, a tucked-in stairway leads up to a bonus room.  With 3 windows, this also makes a great office, gathering space for hobbies or loud sports watching.  Is your college student home?  Put her/his bedroom here. Maybe this is where you sit with your language CD’s while you prepare for your next vacation?   Need convenient space for holiday decorations and memorabilia?  This is ideal with easy access and no lifting up into a small space on a ladder.

Time to Work

Next to your 3rd bedroom suite is your laundry room with a closet.  This space is the pass-through from your two-car garage.  You can have separate washer and dryer machines or consider a stackable, leaving more space for counters and hanging cabinets.

Time to Play

Your two-car garage can be your toybox.  A car for practicality and a car for cruising or your golf cart, if you live on a course, all will belong here.  There is a storage area with a door entry in this garage too for tools, pool chemicals, towels for drying the car you wash and a utility door to the outside on the back wall.

Work – play – eat – rest…..this house has it all.  Be patient and brave and get this Sterling plan.  Perfection takes time and action.  This home will surprise and delight you in all the best ways so put on your game face, leap into the journey and keep living well.

Make this your own.  Welcome Home.
