In Bowling Green, A Charming Villa

Bobel Builders has created a lovely neighborhood. Deer Hollow is a subdivision of winding streets with superbly landscaped lawns. The home at 810 Deer Ridge Run in Bowling Green is a delightful attached villa with everything you need for comfortable living all on one floor. Should you want more, there s also a full basement.

The exterior is red brick with vinyl accents, with the front door set on an angle. The masonry here is wonderful, with keystones above the doors and windows and quoins at the corners. The poured concrete walk leads to the porch there s just one step into this lovely home.

Step into the welcoming foyer. High ceilings and deep crown molding above and a ceramic tile floor below set off this room beautifully. To the right is an attractive room with a bay window. With a double closet, it would make a very convenient bedroom, but you may choose to make this your office. A full bath with a cherry vanity and Corian countertop is off the foyer near this room.

Nearby is the entrance to the basement, and a convenient guest closet. Another bedroom across the foyer has a single closet.

Just a note: the doorways in this home are extra-wide, making the rooms easily accessed via wheelchair.

The foyer concludes in the very spacious great room with a vaulted ceiling. This open floor plan provides for dining to the right. To the left is a gas fireplace with a granite surround and hearth and a wood mantel. Light from your own lamps will be enhanced by the recessed lighting above in this room, a wonderful space for entertaining.

To the right of the fireplace, behind French doors, is a study. Sliding doors here lead to the concrete patio and the backyard beyond.

A part of this open floor plan is the large kitchen. Informal dining takes place in the dinette, where a lovely display cabinet matches the cherry kitchen cabinets. Light colored, granite-look Corian countertops provide a nice contrast to the dark cabinets.

A pass-through to the great room is a wonderful feature, and provides a snack bar for those who want to visit while the cook rules the kitchen. An appliance garage stores small appliances out of the way. Large appliances aren t installed yet; Bobel Builders is offering a generous appliance allowance to the new owner. The kitchen floor is made of DuraCeramic, a vinyl product that looks like tile.

A utility room off the kitchen doubles as a mudroom, and leads to the two-car garage. A drain in the floor here makes it possible to wash the car even in the winter. The garage also offers an entrance to the basement. The full basement has nine-foot ceilings, and is plumbed for a full bath.

Across the great room is the entrance to the master suite. A tray ceiling is accented by molding and rope lighting, and has a fan for air circulation. A triple casement window overlooks the conservation easement behind the home. The window is part of the Pella Designer Series, and awaits between-the-glass shades or blinds.

The master bath is impressive, with a double vanity, shower, a private water closet, and a walk-in closet with plenty of room for two. There is also a very large linen closet here.

Bobel Builders has added so much to its homes: double-insulated walls for sound protection, elegant masonry, tall ceilings, beautiful moldings and top quality products. Fred Bobel stands behind his work so much so that he also lives in Deer Hollow.

The association fee is $120 per month. That price includes snow removal and lawn care, including aeration, mulch and fertilizer, as well as regular maintenance.
