Our Featured Home

Whitehouse, Ohio, is growing, and the Whitehouse Valley neighborhood there is growing right along with it. There are just a few properties left in Plat 1, and Plat 2 is under construction now. This week s featured home, at 6205 Whitehouse Valley Drive, is the model home for Plat 1, and because it s a model, it has upgrades not included in other homes at this price.

The home is just right for a growing family. Sited on a two-thirds acre lot, the home has a light brick and vinyl exterior with a complete landscaping package and sprinkler system. Carriage lights grace the front near the drive, as well as the front door with its sidelights.

Inside, the foyer rises two stories. A spectacular chandelier in oil-rubbed bronze hangs in front of a second-story window with plant ledge. Oak hardwood floors gleam below.

To the left is the spacious living room, which leads to the formal dining room. To the right, a short hall leads to the kitchen. Off the hall is a guest closet, powder room, and the two-car garage. The garage has access to an attic.

Just off the kitchen is the utility room, with hookups for a washer and dryer. It s such a convenient spot close to the staircase to the second floor, and if you get a splash of tomato sauce on your shirt while cooking in the kitchen, you ve got a handy place to wash it out, fast.

The white kitchen is the ideal place to make your mark on this home. A solid surface countertop in a neutral tan will go perfectly with any accent color you choose. The oversized pendant lights over the island snack bar make a dramatic statement; a similar light fixture will hang over your dinette set. The molded kitchen sink is positioned under a window, and includes a Moen faucet with an integrated sprayer.

Nearby are two large pantries, as well as the staircase to the partial basement. A built-in desk in the kitchen is a great place for your home computer very convenient for looking up recipes on the Internet. Opposite are sliding doors to the poured concrete patio and the very large lot beyond.

Step down from the kitchen to the spacious family room. Oak crown molding sets off the ceiling beautifully. In the corner is a gas fireplace with an oak mantel and marble surround. Triple windows on one wall look out over the back.

The second floor is reached via a wide staircase off the foyer. To the left is the master suite, featuring a beautiful triple tray ceiling with a fan. The master bath, just steps away, includes a large soaking tub and a step-in shower with two seats. A walk-in closet and a linen closet provide ample storage, as does a large vanity with a white cultured marble top.

Down the hall are three more bedrooms, all with double closets. They share a full hall bath.

This very comfortable model home is 1,980 square feet plenty of space for the whole family, yet not so large that energy costs are exorbitant.

Plat 2 of Whitehouse Valley will include many upgrades included in the base price, including six-panel solid pine doors, solid surface countertops with molded sinks, ceramic floors in the kitchen and bath, oak hardwood flooring in the foyer and powder room, stainless kitchen appliances, a complete landscaping package, and so much more. Plans for Plat 2 include a pond and walking trails. Twenty lots, with many larger than a half acre, are available in Plat 2.
