About The Home:
Hester Home Builders’ traditional walkout ranch is like a welcome breath of fresh, country air with plenty of spaces to relax and entertain. Kerrin Hester’s four-bedroom home showcases thoughtful design details throughout, including a laundry that’s accessible from the master bath, whole house audio and a nine-foot wide sliding glass door that leads to a covered deck. Country Charm certainly lives up to its name, offering homeowners a relaxing escape from big city pressures and plenty of modern technologies to make everyday living a breeze.

Brown brick, stone and vinyl shakes highlight the exterior, while a large traditional front porch with intricate brick work around windows and doors serves as a focal point. An eight-foot tall wood double door with wrought iron and decorative glass invites guest into an incredible foyer, complete with a barrel vaulted ceiling accented with a sky mural. The formal entry offers a fabulous first impression that continues with exploration into the 13-foot coffered ceiling dining room, where dinner-goers are sure to keep their forks for dessert to enjoy the space a little longer. The great room beckons family members to gather around the hearth and enjoy open views of the kitchen and covered deck just beyond. With a nine-foot wide sliding door and built-ins surrounding the fireplace, the gathering space offers warmth and light to the heart of the home. A gourmet kitchen features designer custom cabinets, a double oven and gas cooktop, large island and a spacious pantry, giving the family chef the perfect recipe for preparing a delicious meal in style. Unique lighting treatments, including antique brass crystal chandeliers and a birdcage-style chandelier add to the charm of the home. Whole house audio, elegant hardwood and engineered wood flooring are featured throughout.

The open, split floor plan features two bedroom and a bath on the right wing of the home, and a spacious master suite on the left. With numerous windows, the master bedroom is light and airy under a tray ceiling. The master bath showcases his-and-hers sinks, a separate shower and bathtub and features a large walk-in closet with a pocket door leading to the laundry room. The lower level of Country Charm is certain to host special occasions within its sprawling entertainment space. A designated theater room is the perfect venue for movie night, with a big screen and projector taking center stage. Guests will enjoy being served at the bar that overlooks a family room and billiards area. The spacious bedroom and bath makes it convenient to invite them to stay overnight. Plenty of unfinished storage space is offered to store seasonal home accessories and family extras and a utility garage serves as a convenient place to park the mower and store lawn tools. There’s even a safe room tucked beyond the storage area. Keeping with Country Charm’s emphasis on Mother Nature, the lower level walks out to the backyard patio and outdoor living space.

The beautifully designed home is outfitted with two 95 percent efficient Lennox furnaces, upgraded Low E windows, a caulk and seal package and R-49 in the ceiling insulation, providing homeowners with lower energy bills. Built for both fun and function, Country Charm offers unique design surprises and conveniences around every corner of this incredible residence, thoughtfully constructed to blend modern building technologies with creative design.
