Generous Gideon looks great, feels great
The Gideon's as enjoyable to look at as it is to live in. Coach lights shine like beacons from their sentinel positions atop handsome brick columns that flank the recessed courtyard's entrance. Ornamental wrought iron links the brick columns, while framing views of the courtyard and porch. A wide driveway curves across the front, into the garage.
Formal rooms are at the core of this 3000-square-foot home. The richly windowed living room and dining room are separated by a two-sided fireplace.
The dining room has a built-in hutch. French doors open onto a skylit, covered patio with a large brick barbecue. A set of pocket doors slide closed when it's desirable to isolate the formal rooms from the relaxed family living spaces.
Kitchen, nook and family room wrap around the right end of the formal spaces, set at a diagonal. Durable and attractive hardwood floors grace these rooms, as well as the foyer. In the octagonal-shaped family room, a home entertainment center nestles into a recess next to a fireplace.
Families who enjoy cooking together will love this kitchen. Counter and cupboard space is abundant, running along a short and a long wall. An exceptionally large work island, outfitted with a chopping block, veggie sink, pop-up mixer and eating counter, adds still more space. Other amenities include: a freezer, built-in desk, appliance garage and commercial-grade six-burner range.
Spacious and elegant, the Gideon's master suite boasts a two-sided direct-vent gas fireplace, which can be enjoyed from the tub or sleeping area. Utilities are in the bedroom wing, and a small office is on the opposite side of the courtyard.
