It’s always Happy Hour within Burrus Architecture & Construction’s 1.5-story classical home, where Bahama shutters accent an incredible outdoor entertaining area out back and a cool breeze is always flowing within the 10-foot deep front porch. A state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen, trellis-covered rear patio with Travertine pavers and a six-foot privacy wall showcase Greg Burrus’ emphasis on making the most of every space, both inside and out. Built to last and designed to entertain, this incredible home drinks in the beauty of its elegant design and natural surroundings, quenching the taste for a delicious combination of nostalgic architecture and modern flavor.

Traditionally designed, the front exterior features pre-finished Hardie plank, white trim and a gorgeous front porch with columns and a railing. The three-quarters glass door is highlighted by a transom, as are each of the windows that take advantage of the 12-foot ceiling height. Inside, a foyer ushers guests into the spacious living room where family members can relax by the double-sided modern fireplace with floor-to-ceiling white slab marble. The open floor plan communicates a vacation-like atmosphere that connects the kitchen, living and dining spaces, offering a great flow for entertaining.

The kitchen has the benefit of enjoying the fireplace as well and features double islands, each welcoming extra hands during dinner prep and inviting friends to sample appetizers before the main course is served. The gourmet space is equipped with 10-foot high cabinets, white marble countertops and Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. Built-in shelves flank the spacious dining area. The culinary space walks out to a truly remarkable covered outdoor living area, where an outdoor kitchen gives the family chef a good excuse to enjoy the beauty of the space. Complete with a 36-inch Wolf grill, Sub-Zero under-counter refrigerator and granite countertops, the outdoor kitchen offers all the right ingredients for serving up a delicious meal. A back entry features a mud room with built-ins and a half bath and closet. A spacious laundry includes a sink, window and folding table and can be conveniently accessed by the master closet. The master suite is tucked within a private hallway on the main level and offers a beautiful place for homeowners to start and end each day. Upstairs, two bedrooms each include walk-in closets and private baths and a loft area that offers a quiet place to recharge or catch up on homework.

The lower level includes a spacious family room and guest suite, making weekend entertaining easy and convenient. Plenty of additional storage within the basement will keep homeowners’ off-season essentials organized. Outfitted with a geothermal zoned HVAC system and 2 x 6 exterior stud walls with R19 insulation, the home will certainly save on energy costs. Happy Hour offers homeowners an excuse to celebrate every day within its plentiful and thoughtfully designed spaces.
