This beautiful “Home of the Week” is located at 2617 Kensington Park Trail.

The new owner will be able to walk into this home and observe the fine work incorporated in the finishing process as well as many energy savers.

The home was constructed in the Craftsman style by Dennis Epperson Custom Homes.

Epperson is known locally as a “green” builder for use of energy-efficient amenities.

The 2,500 square-foot home is already sold but Epperson has other homes in Kensington under construction.

Virtually every inch of usable space was well thought out during the building process.

The exterior features a stacked stone veneer facade with vinyl trim, making the home a virtually maintenance-free structure.

Large columns showcase the front porch of the home. The home also has a two-car garage, detailed with carriage-style, electronically controlled doors. A concrete drive and sidewalks are included.

Once inside, the details in the architecture appear. Space was used wisely and plenty of storage space provided in the closets spread throughout the home.

Conveniently located in the foyer is a powder room.

Beautiful,ide casings and moldings have been applied to finish each room. Custom paint schemes are also evident throughout the home. High ceilings add to the openness of the main floor.

The home features include a separate formal dining area. Conveniently located is the kitchen area which features modern appliances and rich cabinetry accented by marble counters and a breakfast bar built-into an island. Beautiful hardwood floors run throughout the main level of this one-and-a half-story home. If the new owners desire, they can prepare and entertain at the bar, utilize the dining area or the patio at the rear of the home.

The home’s great room is cozy, featuring a gas-log fireplace and wood flooring. Energy-efficient windows were installed to aid in home energy conservation. An office or smaller den area was also constructed just off the foyer.

The master bedroom features a trey ceiling and large windows which add to the openness of the room. Just off the master bedroom is the master bath. It has been carpeted.

A jetted tub, custom tile work, shower and granite his-and-hers separate vanity tops are some of the features in this spacious bath.

Three additional carpeted bedrooms upstairs and round out the upper level of this energy efficient home which is heated and cooled with central heat and air.

The shared bath in the upstair also has a double vanity. In total, the home has four bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths.

The home also has a washroom, security features and satellite connections.

Rhee Epperson of Remax Realtors was the listing agent for this featured home.

The home is sold and already occupied but the builder wanted to use the home as a model for prospective buyers who may want the same floor plan.
