About The Home:
No need to book the overseas vacation. Maison de Chevaux transports its homeowners to a destination that blends European influences with classic craftsman-style design, with plenty of spaces to relax and socialize within its nearly 5,000 square feet. Richard Miles has created a home where its owners will journey into a lifestyle that keeps them organized, relaxed and entertained within a retreat that features unique architectural accents and functional use of space. Maison de Chevaux offers a formal excursion to casual living for the whole family with arched openings, built-ins and unique ceiling treatments throughout, while inviting its natural surroundings to play a role in the design with plentiful windows and outdoor living spaces.

Dogwood Homes highlights a beautiful iron fleur-de-lis front door with stone and brick accents and head-turning curb appeal. Inside, arched openings usher guests into the five-bedroom home which immediately showcases a large, coffered ceiling office with a double door private entry. Dinner guests are treated to a beautiful dining space serviced conveniently by a butler’s pantry that leads to the gourmet kitchen. A second-story great room beckons family members to gather and enjoy natural light streaming through windows and a double-sided fireplace shared with the large covered deck just beyond. A beautiful in-ground pool offers a refreshing escape on hot summer days. Prepping dinner is more of a pleasure than a chore in the incredible kitchen, which boasts a huge island work station where family members can perfect an heirloom recipe or spend a few minutes of quality time on a busy school morning. A casual dining space offers access to the covered deck and more windows to continue the light and airy feel of Maison de Chevaux. A double oven and huge walk-in pantry keep the family chef organized and productive, while a built-in desk and cubbies and extra large laundry continue the functional theme.

The master suite is announced with a private trayed ceiling entry that leads to the sleeping chamber, a large walk-in closet and beautiful master bath which features a freestanding tub, tiled shower and his-and-hers vanities. The master bedroom walks out to the covered back porch, offering homeowners continued opportunities to enjoy the outdoor living space. The upper level overlooks the great room below and includes two baths and three bedrooms, each with large walk-in closets. The lower level continues the emphasis on craftsmanship with a creatively built playhouse room, designed to keep family members of all ages entertained. A spacious lower level great room offers plenty of room for a friendly game of pool or movie night with the family. The full-service bar and walk out patio continue the party atmosphere, while a spacious bedroom and bath suite welcomes overnight guests.

Beautifully and thoughtfully designed throughout, Maison de Chevaux is energy efficient as well, outfitted with spray foam insulation to keep interior spaces comfortable and save homeowners money on energy costs. With incredible spaces inside and out, this home continually emphasizes its commitment to craftsmanship, while offering spaces intentionally designed to make everyday living a vacation-like experience, enabling its inhabitants to relax and enjoy their lives and each other.
