Lofty Ceilings and Open Spaces Show Off Details of This 1970s Soft Contemporary

7719 Lemmonwood Front 2

The curb appeal on this house is just unreal! From the terraced concrete planters to the expert landscape lighting, this is one of those houses that was made for twilight photo shoots. It looks like a jewel box from the outside, and is gorgeous on the inside, too.

Not only that, but it has all the extras — all of the little things that take a house from so-so to ooh-la-la — making it a great candidate for our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. Now, this house, marketed by Brandon Stewart at David Griffin & Company Realtors, has only been on the market for six days, so if you want to put in your highest and best right now, contact Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today.

That cool split-level floorplan in this 1975-built four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bath home means an almost two-story ceiling height in the open living area. That makes the space feel larger and more dramatic, and considering how it opens up the living and dining spaces to the kitchen, it makes the whole first floor a wonderful space for entertaining.

It also shows off the hardwood floors and fireplace in this 3,116-square-foot home at 7719 Lemmonwood Dr., which is listed for $579,000. That price comes out to almost $186 per square foot. What I’m not a fan of is that wrought iron railing on the stairs, which could be a cool opportunity for you to add a personal touch with something a bit more modern. Imagine something with tensioned wire, or stainless steel, or even frameless tempered glass!

The dining room and kitchen both sport cool chandeliers and plenty of light. I like the color of the cabinetry, but the granite counters and backsplash feel a little too busy and traditional for the space. However, you’ll appreciate the stainless steel appliances and all of the storage available.

There are two master suites in this home, which will be attractive for multi-generational households. The larger one is upstairs, and has a spacious sitting room to the side that would work as a private library, a home office, or maybe even a nursery. The master bath has fresh tile, a jetted tub, and a frameless glass shower.

The backyard is really wonderful, with a nice patio just off the living area and a beautiful pool. There’s a small lawn area to the side, and the landscaping is low maintenance and just perfect. This home is just so easy to love, and would make for great everyday living as well as entertaining.
