Eye on the Prize: Villas at Palisades Offer Stunning 3-Bedroom Plans You Have to See to Believe


A luxurious lifestyle awaits you at Villas at Palisades, along with the amenities you associate with Sylvania living. Come home to 5346 Palisades Drive and enjoy soaring ceilings, a towering fireplace, and the richness of high-end finishes.


From the moment you enter 5346 Palisades Drive, you can see the possibilities. Every amenity you’ve dreamed of is ensconced within the stone and brick semi-detached villa. It takes little imagination to picture your belongings sliding into place—and the fantasy can become reality for tens of thousands of dollars less than you would expect for high-end villas.
Consider all the custom touches. Entry to the large, tile-floored foyer is gained through a decorative 6-panel door featuring an etched glass sidelight and overhead transom. Ahead lies the welcoming great room with its vaulted ceiling and soaring stone fireplace. You can practically see future party guests moving through the space.

To your right is the lovely (and spacious!) formal dining room. Two gracefully arched casement windows under a vaulted ceiling look out over the professionally landscaped yard. Convenient crank-handles fold flush, so widow treatments fall properly. A graceful dark-bronze chandelier adds an elegant touch.

Strolling through the dining room, you come to the heart of the home: the kitchen. Here, an abundance of Merillat cabinets in beautiful Sedona stain line the walls, highlighted by rich granite countertops. Interspersed is the gleam of stainless steel appliances, including a Kenmore range, dishwasher, and microwave. An oil-rubbed bronze-colored Moen fixture with pull-out sprayer adds a bit of style. Sunlight floods into a cozy breakfast sunroom—the perfect place to linger over morning coffee. The peninsula breakfast bar with frosted-glass pendants is a pleasant place for informal meals, and a pass-through window to the great room keeps the cook connected to the conversation. What a welcoming environment for sharing meals or entertaining guests!
A nearby powder room boasts a beautiful white Kohler pedestal sink, chrome fixtures and lights, and a large oval mirror.
The master bedroom offers space galore—including a private slice of the great outdoors seen through sliding doors that open onto a private, covered patio with recessed lighting. The attached private bath is detailed with ceramic medallion tiles and offers a deep whirlpool tub, step-in shower, linen closet, and cavernous walk-in closet with window. The cultured-marble counter features twin sinks and substantial cabinet space.
There are two additional large bedrooms, each with ceiling fan and sizeable walk-in closet. A second full bath, with a spacious linen closet and honey colored maple cabinet, is conveniently located between the two bedrooms. 

For laundry and tasks, the villa features a utility room with a deep sink, copious cabinets, and a waist-high folding area. Behind easy-access doors you’ll find a Bradford White 50-gallon hot water tank, and an American Standard 95 percent-efficient gas furnace.
Energy-efficient, low-maintenance Anderson casement windows with embedded grilles are featured throughout this home’s 2,150 sq. foot floor plan. Plus, a two-car attached garage features 12-foot-high ceilings, an automatic door opener, and a convenient side entrance.
What more could you want? How about nearly maintenance-free living that takes the worry out of lawn care and snow removal? In fact, the only thing missing at this luxurious retreat is you!
