The Steele Magnolia is true to original craftsman-style architecture, while featuring plenty of innovative products and design techniques. Joe and Rocky Pusateri have given owners the benefit of a home that’s built on tradition as well as modern technology. Board and batten shutters and tapered square columns complement warm tones of brick and stone on the exterior. A gorgeous covered front porch encourages guests to come explore the many inviting spaces that lie within The Steele Magnolia’s 4,762 square feet.
Once inside, the foyer offers a welcome embrace with open view of the formal dining room and great room just beyond. Craftsman-style lighting fixtures, wood beams and bronze accents continue to reinforce the architectural elements that the Pusateri duo intended. Tray ceilings highlight the foyer and dining room, which includes access to a convenient butler’s pantry. The spacious kitchen features everything a chef could want, including a large walk-in pantry and a spacious kitchen island that’s sure to be a gathering place for friends and family.
The Steele Magnolia continues its warm welcome into the breakfast room, which offers access to a peaceful screened back porch where lazy Saturday mornings are enjoyed with a large cup of coffee and a good book. The screened area is connected to a deck where homeowners can also enjoy more relaxing moments taking in the beautiful natural surroundings of the walk-out ranch. The spacious great room includes custom built-in cabinetry and a beautiful stone gas fireplace. Gorgeous views of the home’s natural elements invite Mother Nature to contribute to the casual design and open feel.
With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, The Steele Magnolia has plenty of room for a busy family and the functionality of one-story living. Three bedrooms are featured on the main level, along with a beautifully appointed office that features a coffered ceiling, wainscotting and built-in books shelves and closets. A Jack-and-Jill bath connects two bedrooms on one side of the home, while the master suite is privately tucked away on the other. A double tray ceiling highlights the bedroom and his-and-hers walk-in closets offer plenty of room for homeowners to stay organized. The master bath features a unique solar tube that contributes a natural glow to the space.
The lower level of The Steele Magnolia blossoms with reasons to celebrate a good time. A lobby-style area greets guests immediately as they come downstairs. Columns usher party-goers to take out the pool cues in the billiards area. For thirsty guests, a custom wet bar offers a comfortable place to visit with the family bartender. The creatively designed space includes a sink fashioned out of a whiskey barrel and kitchen essentials that makes it easy to entertain. A spacious recreation area offers plenty of room to enjoy watching the big game with friends or movie night with the family.
