It's OK to have a favorite -- a charmer in the form of an ensconced stone and brick, three-bedroom villa capable of providing you and your family with nearly every amenity you could want or need. The second you cross the threshold of 5346 Palisades Drive you will become partial to the possibilities this Palisades property.



Consider 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. Your imagination has plenty of room to run free between these walls.



To your right is the 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 Delta 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.



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 2,1500-square-foot floor plan. Plus, a two-car attached garage features 10-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!
