The kitchen is located at the rear of the home and is open to the nook, family room and elegant back yard.  It’s just steps away from the formal dining area, too, so is ideally located in the home.

The Use of Wood: Hardwood Floors, Wood Cabinets & Niches

Loft bookcase and media center

The kitchen, of course, displays a great deal of maple cabinetry.  But wood is found throughout this home.

Beautiful hardwood flooring is found in the family room, living and dining rooms as well as on the first few steps of the stair case and the landing by the half bath.  (The kitchen and baths all have tile floors.)

The family room enjoys a lovely wooden media niche near the fireplace, and the loft upstairs has a beautiful and useful wooden bookcase/media niche as well.

All interior doors are white, raised panel doors (except for the two walk in closet doors in the master bedroom suite).

The wood found throughout the house makes it feel traditional & contemporary at the same time – “warm & homey” as well as personalized.

The Exquisite Backyard – Showpiece of The Willows

Sandstone patios, walkways and walls meander through the yard, with trellises at one end and the middle

Sandstone patios, walkways and walls meander through the yard, with trellises at one end and also in the middle

Step into the backyard at 870 Brevins Loop and you will find an uncommonly elegant yard, beautifully designed using sandstone patios, walkways, walls and seating areas.

Focal points include two trellises, one just opposite the sliding glass door and featuring a cascade of Morning Glories and the other at the far right side of the yard, with a bench for taking in the scenery.

Mature plants, bushes and trees ring the yard: birch, Japanese Maple, annuals, vines and more.  By day it can feel like a retreat.  By night, though, it is also beautiful, thanks to dramatic lighting. Some small, automatic lighting is built along the walls. There are also two posts with lamps at the far right and far left of the yard. And, of course, there are two more lights by the slider into the kitchen.
