A true work of art, The Antiquity invites homeowners to appreciate every moment, with plenty of nods to the past and an open concept floor plan with modern technologies that keep the home running efficiently. P.L. Lyons Architectural Builders offers detailed craftsmanship around every corner of this 4,337 square foot walkout ranch, including Old World doors, stained glass, imported antiquities and beautiful reclaimed wood from a Kentucky horse farm. The four-bedroom, three-bath home is like a treasure hunt within every space, where each room offers elegant clues to how a family can combine functional living spaces with engaging, one-of-a-kind environments that inspire and entertain. Architect Ben Robbins, Adam Gallagher and Perry Lyons have incorporated their trademark custom trim work, open floor plan and thoughtful design with the right mix of intriguing mystery to keep guests engaged. (SPOILER ALERT: There’s even a bookcase that leads to a hidden room.) 
Beautiful limestone and an arched, custom wrought iron door highlight the front entrance of The Antiquity, which also showcases Old World-style brick and shutters on the exterior. A hand-crafted stone turret piques the curiosity of passersby and features five windows that invite natural light to celebrate the home. Around back, a spacious private deck offers convenient access to the rear lawn and a relaxing environment to appreciate the natural beauty and wildlife that frequent the open space just beyond the home’s lot.
First-time guests will likely stop in their tracks once inside the foyer of The Antiquity, where they’ll immediately be drawn to admire the beautiful reclaimed hardwood and staircase artistically crafted and highlighted by the turret stairwell. Alongside the foyer, a gorgeous dining space with a custom radius faux-finished tray ceiling conveys the home’s open invitation to stay for dessert. Just beyond, the great room beckons family members to gather and enjoy the natural light streaming in through the home’s back wall of windows where an incredible view of wildflower gardens and open, green spaces add to the design. Built-in bookcases highlight the craftsmanship in the open concept design that is shared with the spacious kitchen. A large island anchors the culinary space where top-of-the-line custom appliances and a handmade hood inspire the family chef to seek out more recipes to sample on a regular basis. 
Interesting details continue through the passageways in the main level, including a barn door entry to the walk-in pantry. A pocket office space and mud room with a built-in bench and hooks add both style and function to coming and going. The laundry room offers a wall with drying racks, a sink and drop-down ironing board, as well as a pocket door that offers convenient access to the master closet. Barn doors continue in the closet which leads to a spacious master spa-like bath with a freestanding tub and double-entry steam shower with a built-in bench. Heated tile floors add comfort to the graceful bathing space. Another barn door leads to the master sleeping chamber, where faux-finished beams highlight the space. Doors leading to the back deck reinforce the home’s emphasis on natural beauty. A second bedroom is featured on the main level, privately tucked beyond a bookcase entry from the great room. 
The five-window turret stairwell offers a tempting invitation to head to the lower level and explore more. Guests won’t be disappointed to find a spacious, Old European-influenced wine bar and entertainment space with custom cabinetry and all the essentials to host a party in style. With plenty of room to play a game of pool or watch a movie on the big screen, the lower level also offers plenty of space to be productive, with a large home office and yoga studio/gym to keep everyone on task and in shape. Two additional bedrooms and a bath create an ideal guest retreat. An artfully crafted bookcase opens into a hidden room. With so many interesting spaces to explore and enjoy, it’s no secret The Antiquity offers something for every member of the family.
