The Jessie Lynn is designed as a comforting safe haven from the busyness of everyday demands. From the exterior’s calming green space to the interior’s vaulted ceilings, from indoor-outdoor living spaces to secret rooms, this home creates spacious security for the modern family that wants a stay-at-home “getaway.” Built by Kevin Weis at Sunrise Development LLC, this house embodies the value of peace at home.

The 1-1/2 story home has a modern craftsman exterior with brick as well as board and batten, complementing the dark gray, green and black color scheme of the home. The natural wood columns are warm and welcoming, drawing guests into the entryway of the 4,900-square-foot home.

The home’s open concept brims with style — the dining room’s herringbone floor upgrades the comfortable space to the next level of sophisticated modern craftsmanship. The abundance of windows provide the perfect setting for lounging after a long workday. As the great room extends into a covered rear porch, it unites indoors and outdoors into a single, livable space.

Combining inside and outside spaces into living areas is a theme that continues in the walkout basement, where 11-foot ceilings open up to a second deck, offering a peaceful view of the outdoors. “We got the exact lot that we wanted,” Kevin said. “It has a lot of green space behind it that won’t be developed.”

The basement’s unique custom bar provides a casual social area, and the wide open area feels friendly and breathable for either large or small occasions.

The second story provides peace of mind for families seeking safety — each bedroom on the second floor features built-in fire escape ladders. For families that enjoy hosting, the second floor also features its own laundry room for guests to easily access.

With five bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths, The Jessie Lynn is made for family. As busy parents themselves, Kevin and Nikki understand the importance of retreats for both adults and youngsters alike. This is why they included a large bonus/game room with vaulted ceilings above the garage. The room is designed with fun in mind for both old and young.

With three boys of their own, the Weis team decided to include something unexpected: a secret room completely hidden behind one of the closets that will be a fun place for kids to hide. And who says that adults don’t need to hide out in their own retreat, too?

Whether it’s spending time outdoors in beautiful green space, making memories in the game room, lounging in the basement with a mixed drink, or finding peace and quiet in the secret room, The Jessie Lynn has something for everyone.
