Some homes are great for the infrequent summer soireé, and other homes have everything you need for hosting during the holiday season. But from our experience, the home that easily entertains crowds no matter the season is rare. Even rarer is the home that can do it all despite the weather priced under $1 million. But that’s exactly what our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week offers — easy entertaining year-round.
“This home has been updated throughout and has a floor plan that is perfect for entertaining,” says Compass agent Michelle Hopson. Her Summit Group is listing this updated ranch in Underwood Estates for such a great price that your jaw will drop, as this home is absolutely stuffed to the gills with great finishes and fixtures.
While most homes have the formals in the front of the home, flanking the entryway, this updated ranch in Underwood Estates has a pool table with some eye-catching wallpaper and an atomic-era chandelier. Imagine posting up in this room with your buddies for endless rounds of 9-ball when the weather is too cold to venture outside.
Just beyond the bay window is the formal dining room. There’s plenty of room at the table for your nearest and dearest come Thanksgiving and Christmas. We also love the bold accent wall color and the light pouring in through the triptych of Low-e windows.
While 3704 Pallos Verdas was built in 1968, it was taken down to the studs in 2016. The floor plan was opened up, which completely transformed the look and feel of this four-bedroom, three-and-one-half-bath home. It’s move-in ready for anyone who wants an updated ranch that lives just as easy as a completely new build.
Just beyond the formal dining room is the kitchen, complete with coffee and beverage bar, ample island with designer pendant lights, and sleek stainless steel appliances. The quartz countertops are on-point, and the wine cooler is a big winner for party people. You’ll also appreciate the gorgeous hardwood floors that span the main entertaining areas and offer a bit of warmth and texture to the cool gray and white color scheme.
“The kitchen is exquisite and opens to the large living room with vaulted ceilings,” Hopson noted. “There is a two-sided fireplace in the living room and den, which is a great Midcentury feature.”
When it’s time to get ready for your guests, or retreat at the end of a gathering, the master suite can handle whatever mood you bring. And don’t worry about being disturbed by your loud and rowdy brood, Hopson said.
“The home has split bedrooms, which affords maximum privacy for a guest suite and for the other family bedrooms,” she added.
The master suite comes with a gorgeous European-style five-piece bath and split vanities. Custom closets offer all the room you need for your wardrobe.
But it’s summer now, so we saved the best for last. When the mercury rises, the back of the house is going to be extremely popular with guests.
“The living areas open to a beautiful pool and spacious backyard,” Hopson said. “There is so much to love about this home!”
