Meridian is a rambling estate home with pool, European elegance
Handsome stone veneer columns and wainscoting give a comforting sense of permanence to the Meridian, a rambling two-story Tuscan home with a pool and more than 4,000 sq. ft. of indoor living space.
Raised stone trim overarches the vaulted porch, extending an elegant welcome. Inside the vaulted foyer, columns flank arched openings that lead into the living room on the left, dining room straight ahead, and hallways to the left and right. This home offers a wealth of generously sized gathering spaces, inside and out.
Family living, in particular, is well-provided for. The vaulted family room is large and naturally bright, with wide expanses of glass on two sides. A gas fireplace nestles into a rear corner by one of the windows.
Standing at the kitchen sink, you can stay totally engaged in goings-on inside and out. You can even keep an eye on the pool. Storage and counter space are in abundant supply, boosted by a triangular step-in pantry in the nook.
A powder room is convenient to all of the gathering spaces, and a full bathroom is nearby, right next to the guest suite. Utilities and yet another bathroom line a hallway that links the kitchen to the patio and pool.
The Meridian's owners' suite is a quiet retreat, well away from the hustle and bustle of family life, but offering direct access to the covered patio and pool. Amenities include a large spa tub, walk-in closet, double vanity, and separately enclosed toilet. The nearby den could be used as a home office.
Two bedrooms, a large recreation room, a bathroom and a loft are on the second floor.
