Fred Andres’ charming 1.5-story bungalow offers homeowners the benefits of a home that’s planned as much for privacy as it is for entertaining. Beautifully designed inside and out, Blue Magnolia makes the most of every square inch and showcases incredible craftsmanship with its built-in bookshelves, shiplap accent and cabinetry throughout. A privacy fence, stepping stone walkway, paver patio with outdoor entertaining area and arbors emphasize Miter Construction’s commitment to setting the scene for relaxation and an appreciation for natural landscapes, while 10-foot ceilings throughout the first floor invite Mother Nature to highlight the interior spaces within.

Hardie board siding and a full-length covered porch enclosed by a knee wall offer a traditional welcome to the four-bedroom home. A triple window design on the first and second levels of the front exterior add a nostalgic emphasis to Blue Magnolia’s first impression. The gorgeous front door ushers guests into the great room where a beautiful hearth sets the stage for many evenings of family and friends enjoying time gathered around the fire. Guests will no doubt be curious to discover what’s cooking in the kitchen where custom cabinets with designer finishes and Bertazzoni-Italia appliances add a gourmet influence to the culinary space. Nearby, a dining area features a built-in window seat and adds function while diners enjoy beautiful views of the natural landscape just beyond.

A relaxing first floor owner’s suite showcases a shiplap wall and charming post and beam ceiling detail, while the master bath features a his-and-hers sink design, a spacious shower and a large walk-in closet. Built-in cabinetry in the back entry and the first floor laundry offer added style and convenience. Upstairs, a creatively designed loft and entertainment area highlights more of the custom built-in cabinetry and gives homeowners another space for family members to host friends or enjoy some private time. The lower level of Blue Magnolia invites fun and creativity as well, with a designated craft room and a large recreation space with a wet bar. A guest suite makes it convenient for visiting friends or family to stay for the weekend.

Outfitted with geothermal and zoned heating and cooling and an insulation package that includes draft-stop foam, Blue Magnolia is certain to save homeowners money on energy costs and give them the peace of mind of owning a home that’s built for the future while respecting the classic architectural charms of yesterday.
