2704 Limerick Ln -
This gorgeous one and a half story home was designed with Gordon Thompson, with an emphasis on functional design. Nestled away from the hubbub of city life, it sits on 1.47 beautifully landscaped acres that backs up to the MKT Trail.
Entering the home, you find yourself in a large foyer, with a grand two story ceiling, hardwood flooring that continues throughout the home, and custom tempered glass windows. To the left is the formal dining room, to the right is the parlor, and directly ahead are the stairs to the upper level. The large dining room boasts a large bay window that looks out to the front yard, and a central chandelier, as well as a vaulted ceiling, and recessed accent shelving. The parlor also has a large window, and leads to a built in office space that opens up into the kitchen. The spacious kitchen features tile flooring, stainless steel GE appliances including profile double ovens and microwave, a Jenn Air electric stove with a griddle and downdraft, herb garden bay window over the triple sink, Whirlpool trash compactor, Kitchen Aid dishwasher, pantry, large custom island with bar seating, cultured marble counter top and backsplash, and tile flooring that extends into the breakfast room, living room and laundry room. The breakfast room takes you out to the custom back deck which offers a beautiful view of the back yard. The custom-built back deck is the length of the home, with a built in propane fueled lava rock fire pit, and stairs down to the exquisitely landscaped pathed garden. The living room is flooded with natural lighting from the numerous picture and casement windows and skylights. The fireplace which is log brick lined extends all the way to the two story ceiling, and the entertainment center is custom built.
A short hallway off the kitchen leads to the master suite, and also offers access to the three car garage, and laundry room. The laundry room has a wash sink, as well as extra high cabinetry and plenty of counter space. The luxurious master suite features a personal breakfast bar with a Kitchen Aid fridge and dishwasher, floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, and granite counter top. The suite offers a large sitting room, with a recessed bedroom area, large picture windows that overlook the back yard, limestone and marble flooring, and a large walk-in closet. The master bath features cultured marble flooring, walk-in shower, and a jetted tub with glass block, limestone and marble surround, as well as his and her vanity. Tempered glass windows provide extensive natural lighting.
Taking the stairs to the upper level you find yourself on a hardwood landing which overlooks both the foyer and the living room. Down the hallway, you find the large secondary bedrooms, each of which has a walk-in closet, and share a Jack and Jill bathroom. Taking the open staircase down to the lower level you find yourself in the second living room. To the right is a wood burning fireplace, and sitting area with a sliding glass door leading to the back deck. A thoughtfully designed bar area features Maytag appliances, including an icemaker, wine refrigerator, and trash compactor, as well as stainless steel tile backsplash, cultured marble counter top, and Amish cabinetry. Just next to the bar area is an exercise room, with a sliding glass door to the back deck. A throughway leads you to the rec room, with access to secondary bedrooms, shared bathroom, and a large closet space. Off of the living room is a family room, with tile flooring, and a throughway to the study, with built-in shelves.
