Your first inkling that something special may exist at 136 Laurelwood Drive arises as you approach the exquisitely manicured and landscaped home. As you enter the home, you will find the living room, powder room and dining room. The formal entryway reveals high ceilings and crown moldings. The living room features crown molding and art lighting above the large fireplace with wood mantle and surround. The formal dining room is adjacent to the butler’s pantry and kitchen. There is a slider to the interior courtyard for flexible entertaining.
The primary living area -- the open concept kitchen and family room -- is bathed in natural light. The kitchen is a true delight with Wolf range / hood, double ovens and built-in microwave and refrigerator. The expansive stone counter provides lots of work spaces and there is plenty of storage. You will also find a walk-in pantry (there is also a butler pantry between the kitchen and dining room), dual basin sink, prep sink in the island (which also has counter seating) and a breakfast area. The family room is spacious, yet cozy, with an oversized gas fireplace and a media space capable of accommodating most any size television.
Also on the lower level, you will find a large en suite bedroom with ample closet space, tucked away at the rear of the home -- perfect for long term guests. There is also a large office that opens to the interior courtyard. Finally, the laundry room is located on this level with access to the 3rd-car parking garage.
The master suite reflects modern lifestyles. There is a separate space which can be used as a nursery, office, gym, library or sitting room (it could also be converted into a second walk-in closet). The large master bath is sensibly laid out with separate vanities, large tub, double-sized step-in shower, water closet and a huge walk-in closet with built-in organizers. The centerpiece of the master bath is the fireplace across from the tub.
Also upstairs are two bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bath and another large en suite bedroom with a sitting area.
This exceptional property also features a highly functional interior courtyard with a fireplace and mounted television. This space is great for entertaining or just relaxing with friends and family.
