Builder Clay Jones offers homeowners a peaceful retreat that is sure to be THE place for friends and family to visit. The Aurora turns heads with gorgeous architectural elements, including a balanced blend of Coronado stone, board and batten shutters and Hardie siding. A circular driveway ushers guests to the covered front porch, which features stone-accented columns and a gorgeous door highlighted by sidelights and a transom.
The front entry of the traditional two-story welcomes guests with handscraped hardwood floors and craftsman-style trim work that accentuate the expertise behind the beautiful designs throughout. Just off the foyer of the 3,657 square foot home are French doors that lead to an elegant office that features built-in bookshelves. Nearby, the vaulted formal dining room offers a gracious space to enjoy long talks with good friends after dessert. A butler’s pantry provides a convenient transition to the gourmet kitchen, complete with custom cabinets from floor to ceiling that complement gorgeous Italian marble countertops.
A breakfast nook is tucked in the back corner, allowing plenty of wonderful views of the rear landscape as well as the two-story great room. A beautiful gas fireplace highlights the space, which provides access to the treated deck area just beyond. The master suite features a tray ceiling and double doors that lead to the master bath. With a private entrance to the deck, the master suite offers homeowners the ambiance of a peaceful vacation-like retreat.
Upstairs, are three additional bedrooms and a large bath with a private toilet/tub area. An additional bedroom is located in the lower level, offering a perfect solution for visiting house guests. A spacious media room allows the whole family to head to the couch on movie night, and a large lower level family room space is reason enough to bring the party downstairs.
The Jones Group has incorporated energy efficient building products and techniques to help homeowners save money on energy costs. With a HERS rating that makes it approximately 40 percent more efficient than the average new home, DOW SIS insulation and a G.E. Geospring water heater, The Aurora qualifies as an LG&E Energy Savings New Home. It’s no doubt that homeowners will forget the after-work errands and come straight home to enjoy every minute within their beautiful new home. With plenty of spaces designed for relaxing, The Aurora offers the peace of mind that today’s quality new homes offer and the uniqueness in design to feel one-of-a-kind.
