Comfort & Style: Redlands home combines both for gracious living
Comfort & style
When it comes to real estate, the standard line is that are are three important factors that help determine where to buy: location, location and location. When it comes to location, it’s hard to get any better than High Pointe Circle, a Redlands area subdivision built exclusively by Darren Caldwell with Conquest Construction and located just minutes away from downtown.
Even within that great neighborhood, where every home tells its own gracious and unique story, it’s hard to beat the home at 417 High Pointe Circle, which sits on a relatively private lot, with the pond on one side and the neighborhood playground on the other.
Although the home looks great from the street even when covered in snow, it’s the back of this property that offers outdoor living regardless of the season. A large covered patio runs almost the entire length of the house, offering a cool, shady spot for gathering. Outside the master suite, there’s an intimate seating area on the patio with a fireplace to give homeowners a spot to enjoy the outdoors even when there’s enough snow to build a snowman. There’s also a front courtyard, which will offer homeowners a sunny space to enjoy morning coffee.
Inside, the home has the luxurious custom finishes that are synonymous with a home built by Conquest Construction. Hardwood, slate and some carpet combine to give the perfect flooring in every room. Tall ceilings in the great room add an expansive feel to the home. In addition to the outdoor fireplace on the patio, there are two other gas fireplaces inside to provide a warm, cozy ambience.
A large island in the kitchen combines storage, seating and style, and the two-inch granite slab countertops in the room add a gourmet touch. True chefs want more than just a pretty counter, however, and this kitchen will fulfill every gourmet cook’s dreams, with a Thermador gas oven and six-burner stove, a Bosch dishwasher and a Sub Zero refrigerator.
An informal eating space off the kitchen, as well as a more formal dining area off the great room provide dining options and room to spread out when hosting parties and family gatherings.
The laundry room gives plenty of storage space, as well as countertops, a work sink and a spot for hanging clothes. There are also lots of storage closets throughout the house.
The master suite offers a true retreat, with access to the patio, double walk-in closets and a highly functional, spa-like bath. His and hers countertop and sink areas are separated by a large soaker tub. The bathroom also has a spacious walk-in shower.
The other two bedrooms are large and one is a complete guest suite, with a private bath. The powder room also has a shower, so there are plenty of places for people to get ready for the day in the morning, even if they all want to shower at once.
The home has a two-car garage on one side of the courtyard and a one-car garage on the other side, which gives plenty of room for cars, equipment and storage without looking like a giant garage.
