The builder of this featured Home of the Week said it’s the little touches as well as the benefits of forward thinking the new owners will enjoy.

Chad and Sarah Dean of Dean Custom Homes LLC made sure the “green will be coming back to the new owner because of the green used in its finishing.”

Located at 705 Abby Glen, the two-story dwelling is situated on a nice lot — beautifully landscaped, including sidewalks and a concrete drive. Added touches are custom gable and cornice decorations. The brick and stone exterior is complemented with architectural HardiePlank and vinyl accents.

Once through the front door, the new owners will begin to experience the “eye-appeal” amenities added to the house.

Custom-paint colors were used throughout the abode. A wainscoted formal dining area is situated near the modern kitchen.

Custom-wood floors were placed in the dining, kitchen and living room areas of the home.

The main living area features an open-air feel with cathedral ceiling and gas-log fireplace as well as beautiful custom moldings, which have been expertly finished and painted.

Modern stainless steel appliances were furnished in thekitchen. Plenty of granite counter space was provided along with custom cabinets, complementing the wood floors.

At the rear of the new house, a spacious, relaxing and large open-air deck awaits family members. This is situated near the kitchen and breakfast nook, which features a bay-styled window.

The master bedroom features an extra-depth double-trey ceiling.

Accent lighting was used throughout the home.

The dwelling has three bedrooms and two baths.

The spacious master suite has an large bath featuring a jetted tub, and custom-stone shower, private water closet and large walk-in closet. n A neat shoe rack was also installed in the master walk-in.

Granite counter spaces were utilized in this bath as well as the smaller shared bath for the two other bedrooms. Tile was used in all bath areas and a utility room.

A finished bonus area upstairs has plenty of potential if the new owner feels the need to “project for the future,” or it can just be used for storage space, or maybe used for another sleeping area.

A spacious laundry area has also been provided with cabinet space.

Dean said the new owners won’t see are the additions which will save money in the future.

“We have to build green homes for our clients now. The future savings will return money to their pockets by using these proven ideas such as wrapping the homes, durable materials, stone, cellulose insulation, controlled air-space, energy-efficient windows and appliances,”

The home also features a two-car garage complete with electronic openers.

Alarm systems have also been placed in the house. Cable, ceiling fans and a central heat and air unit are also included amenities.

The Deans have several more new homes in the planning stages. Melody Smith of Keller Williams Realty is the agent for this new home offered by Dean Custom Homes LLC.

This home has approximately 2,400 square-foot of quality living space and is listed for $244,900.

An open house is scheduled for Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
