Gabrianico’s Secret is a home that invites inquisitive guests to explore and discover for themselves the clues that make it so unique. Builder Pat Durham has transformed an open floor plan to feel both spacious and intimate throughout its 3,220 square feet. The 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath Craftsman-style home offers plenty of space for entertaining, with tall ceilings and doorways throughout.
Shake siding and recycled brick reclaimed from a building in downtown Louisville complement a quaint, cottage-style front exterior. Off-white and tan tones and colorful landscaping announce a beautiful front porch that features a double, arched eight-foot mahogany front door with beveled glass, which opens to a two-story foyer accented with a unique ceiling treatment.
Once inside Gabrianico’s Secret, guests are greeted with open views of the family and breakfast room areas, which usher in natural light from large picturesque windows. A beautiful hearth is flanked with built-in bookshelves in the family room, which provides a welcoming environment for both casual and formal entertaining. Just beyond, detailed openings with built-up Federal heads lead to the kitchen and mudroom, where fashion meets function to offer homeowners organized spaces to manage a busy lifestyle. The kitchen is strategically designed to invite families to share in meal preparation and enjoy quick lunches at the bar or longer dinner celebrations in the breakfast room.
The master suite is tucked away beyond a private entrance just off the family room. It features a hip-vaulted ceiling within the elegantly designed sleeping quarters. The master bath is announced with a barrel vaulted ceiling, beautiful tile and a relaxing bathing space that offers a peaceful way to begin any morning. A large walk-in closet offers more reasons to stay organized. Two additional bedrooms and a bath are featured upstairs, where a landing overlooks the foyer.
The lower level of Gabrianico’s Secret showcases 10-foot ceilings and serves as a dynamic entertainment destination and an ideal guest retreat. An expanded outdoor patio area invites friends to stay a little longer and enjoy fireside chats, courtesy of the convenient gas starter installed to make lighting the fire pit an easy task.
Behind the beautiful design of Pat Durham’s home are energy efficient building techniques and products that allow homeowners to save money on energy costs. Qualified as an LG&E’s Energy-Saving New Home, Gabrianico’s Secret also will make homeowners feel safe and secure with technology that allows them to monitor their home via their iPhone or iPad. Built for style, safety and function, it’s no mystery that Gabrianico’s Secret is thoughtfully designed for today’s busy homeowners who value the quiet moments as well as the adventures they are sure to discover within their new home.
