Passers by The Emmie will mostly likely double-check their GPS systems to make sure they’re not in the French countryside. Wood shutters, cultured tudor stone, iron details and a rooftop cupola add nostalgic European architectural elements to an exterior which summons friends to journey within its 3,762 square feet. A solid wood arched top front door is tucked within the front porch and greets guests with a welcoming invitation to come explore The Emmie.
Builder Dan Smith has created a 4-bedroom, 3-bath home that uniquely fulfills the homeowners’ passion for entertaining and making the most of their natural surroundings. The entry foyer immediately suggests this is a home designed with thoughtful design elements and functional spaces that allow for both organization and style.
French doors announce a gorgeous library with closets that flank the picture window, which make it easily converted to a large bedroom. Across the hall, a formal dining room, accented by columns, offers access to a butler’s pantry. Both the library and dining room each feature raised tray ceilings. A family entry area includes built-in cubbies and convenient access to the kitchen, laundry and garage.
The kitchen, family room and breakfast areas combine to offer fantastic views of the beautiful landscape beyond and a natural gathering space for friends and family. Beautiful archways offer an old world feel to the culinary space, which features double islands designed for entertaining and a large walk-in corner pantry that keeps chef essentials easily accessible. The great room is highlighted by a beamed ceiling and wood burning stone fireplace and is a natural gathering space, with convenient access to the large back porch.
A master suite foyer includes a quaint art niche. Once inside, the relaxing slumber area provides a tranquil place to relax under a barrel vaulted ceiling. The master bath is uniquely designed, with back-to-back his-and-hers vanities and a free-standing tub.
The lower level of The Emmie offers inviting spaces below, with two additional bedrooms and a uniquely designed bath. A large game area and media room lead to an outdoor entertainment patio and offer plenty of reasons to host a party where everyone can come and enjoy a good time. Unfinished space allow homeowners to plan for future enhancements to the lower level.
Stonelake Homes has incorporated framing techniques, Nu-Wool insulation and a high-efficiency Carrier HVAC system to help homeowners save on energy costs. Qualified as an LG&E Energy Saving New Home, The Emmie is as much functional as it is beautiful. With a separate garage that can be used as a workshop or third car storage, the floor plan is designed for today’s busy homeowners who value modern technologies as well as nostalgic charm. The Emmie is a place that makes coming home at the end of the day a welcome retreat.
