Designed with growing families in mind, The Ashmore is a virtual playground of creative spaces for all ages to explore and enjoy. Builder Jason Orthober offers homeowners both an imaginative and functional floor plan created for keeping busy lifestyles more organized and productive within its 4,660 square feet.
With plenty of elegant spaces throughout the 4-bedroom, 4.5 bath home, The Ashmore offers a captivating curbside appeal with painted brick, cypress shutters and copper accents turning heads. Steep rooflines and an elegant front porch that is host to a double arched mahogany front door lend European elegance to the beautiful French country style home.
Inside, 10-foot ceilings offer height within and casement windows usher in natural light to create an open, airy feel. A gracious two-story foyer announces a spacious study that overlooks the front lawn. Nearby, the spacious dining room includes an alcove ideal for that heirloom buffet and a great space to celebrate special occasions.
The kitchen features everything a discerning chef could want, including a large kitchen island that invites little hands to help stir the pancake batter on lazy Saturday mornings. Beautiful cabinetry, double ovens and plenty of countertop space contribute to making the culinary space a beautiful place to create family meals. Just beyond, a spacious breakfast room leads out to the incredible screened-in porch which serves as a cozy place to cuddle up with a book by the fire or enjoy watching the afternoon basketball game on TV with friends while Dad slow cooks ribs on the grill deck.
A mud room features plenty of built-in cubbies to help busy families stay organized and offers access to the three-car garage. Gorgeous views of The Ashmore’s natural surroundings continue in the great room, where a fantastic fireplace and beautiful windows highlight the large gathering space. Twelve-foot ceilings and a cased opening that showcases the stairwell contribute to the open feel of the room.
The second level features bird’s eye views of the foyer below and a raised, hidden playroom that is sure to be host to many hours of laughter and fun. The spacious master suite features a hip vaulted ceiling and a “morning bar,” complete with a mini fridge, sink and coffee maker. His-and-hers walk-in closets and a creative art niche segue to the large master bath, which is highlighted by a vaulted ceiling and retreat-style bathing areas. Three additional bedrooms, each with large walk-in closets and two additional baths, are featured on the second level. An upstairs laundry makes it convenient for everyone to make sure clothes are clean and organized.
The lower level of The Ashmore offers more casual entertaining spaces with 8-foot doorways, a large recreation room and bar that’s open to the media area. Homeowners can easily transition the party outside to the walk-out patio area.
Orthober Custom Homes has made sure homeowners benefit from energy efficient products and building techniques by incorporating energy efficient-sealing and caulking all intrusions. A Tyvek, 93 percent efficient furnace with a heat pump contributes to qualifying The Ashmore as an LG&E Energy-Savings New Home.
Designed for functional living and entertaining a variety of age groups, The Ashmore is beautifully designed to satisfy Mom and Dad’s quest for elegant, relaxing spaces and the kids’ imaginative adventures. Thoughtfully planned with room to grow, The Ashmore gives homeowners the advantage of spaces created to making their lives easier and more enjoyable.
