About The Summerly:
Every day will seem like a vacation in The Summerly, which offers homeowners an escape from the rush into a uniquely designed retreat built to make life simple and easy. Jason Orthober has partnered modern technologies with rustic design elements, such as whitewashed shiplap, brick and barn wood throughout more than 5,000 square feet of living space. Steep roof pitches, diamond-patterned windows and Old World architectural elements summon guests to enjoy its many gathering spaces where functional spaces keep homeowners organized and on task. Whether it’s a quiet morning spent enjoying a cup of coffee by the stone fireplace on the screened back porch, an elegant dinner in the formal dining room or a rowdy game of pool in the lower level entertainment space, this home is simply meant to be celebrated.

Gorgeous brick, stone and Hardie board highlight the exterior of this one-and-a-half-story country French home, accented with shutters and a solid mahogany front entry door with diamond-patterned grilles in the glass. The Old World character continues within the spacious, open floor plan which is formally introduced by a beautiful study and dining room off the foyer. The coffered ceiling great room is open to the kitchen and casual dining spaces. Thoughtfully designed to be both functional and gracefully interactive with the gathering areas, the culinary space features solid maple Welborn cabinets, an enormous kitchen island, a built-in furniture-like hutch and a window over the sink that looks out to the covered deck, where an outdoor fireplace beckons family members to relax and enjoy the warmth and beauty of The Summerly’s natural surroundings.

The master suite is refuge for homeowners who appreciate starting and ending their day in comfort. Decorative panels with inset wallpaper highlight the slumber area, while a large picture window invites plenty of natural light into the space. A custom his-and-hers walk-in closet gives homeowners plenty of room to organize their wardrobes, and a good, long soak in the gorgeous tub will be a great way to end the day. Coming and going will be organized as well with built-in cubbies in the mud room and an oversized laundry that can help everyone stay on task. An additional 30-foot bachelor bay serves as an ideal for workshop and storage area and is connected to the spacious two-car garage, giving family members plenty of room for making sure everything is in its place.

Custom window treatments are featured throughout the entire home, while whitewashed shiplap, stone, brick and reclaimed wood elements chime in to add rustic accents. The lower level features a spacious bar with Cambria countertops and is sure to be the social spot on Saturday nights. A designated workout room and playroom offer something for every family member, especially those who like to serve up a hot cup of imaginary tea in style. The flooring in the lower level is waterproof luxury vinyl plank. Jason Orthober has outfitted The Summerly with plenty of energy efficient building products and techniques, including foam insulation and a high efficiency furnace and an electric water heater. Orthober Custom Homes has delivered the perfect four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath getaway, where the journey of everyday life can be abundantly enjoyed.
