What is your ideal home? Do you dream of cozy country charm or do you find sleek modern designs and materials to be an integral part of the perfect home? The reality is that many people find a bit of both to be most comfortable, and that’s what you get when Scotch Homes builds the 2017 Ideal Home.
Scotch Homes was chosen by the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders to construct this year’s Ideal Home. The concept that the team came up with is the Modern Farmhouse. This home combines warm Southern Hospitality with some of the most exciting and stylish trends coming to the housing market, ranging from materials to Smart Home technology.
The home, which sits atop a grand ridge that offers stunning views in every direction, is being built in Scotch Homes’ Willow Branch community in Chelsea, Alabama. The Farmhouse exterior of the home makes the most of trending painted brick, board and batten, cedar beams and stone patios.
Once you step inside the home, your breath is taken away by the soaring 12-foot coffered ceiling in the family room, as well as the 16-foot all-glass Western sliding door that leads out onto an outdoor patio. The space creates an outstanding indoor/outdoor living area that even includes an outdoor kitchen with built-in Coyote gas grill and refrigerator. Even the dining room features soaring vaulted ceilings, yet with the grand scale of so many features in the home, it still retains a warm, inviting feel where you’ll want to gather with family and friends.
Built-in bookcases that surround the shiplapped fireplace give the family room a sense of coziness, while the quaint factor is kicked up a notch by the Dutch door off the mud room that creates an ideal place for dropping off everything from book bags to groceries when you get home. Even the dining room manages to create a sense of warm intimacy, despite leaving plenty of space for a big farmhouse dining table.
Shiplapping, rich dark 7″ hand-scraped hardwood flooring, and a barn door leading to the laundry room all conjure up the warm, inviting atmosphere of a farmhouse. Yet there are plenty of features included that turn this into a Modern Farmhouse, making the most of today’s conveniences and modern amenities. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with plenty of space for features such as a professional GE Café Appliance gas cooktop and built-in oven, a state of the art built-in Kuerig refrigerator, and a nine-foot-plus waterfall wrapped silestone island that is as stunning as it is useful. Even the master bathroom takes things to new heights with marble accents, a free-standing bathtub, and a two-person shower enclosed in glass from floor to ceiling.
With all of these amazing features, as well as bedrooms upstairs and downstairs and an upstairs loft area, it’s easy to see why this home is the 2017 Ideal Home. Once you see it, you’ll never want to leave. You can get a chance to see this dream home during the 2017 Parade of Homes, which takes place on April 21- 23, 28-30.Tags: builder blitz, homebuilder in chelsea al, new homes for sale birmingham al, new homes in Chelsea AL
