A bright, open floor plan, with large windows, gives this home a spacious feel.


This week’s featured home is on trend with today’s home décor, yet the quality construction, exquisite floor plan, and fine materials will always be in style.

The home at 25124 Rocky Harbour Drive is an example of the Venice model from McCarthy Builders. McCarthy has been in business since 1988, and is a leader in the development and building of villa communities, which provide residents with lawn care and snow removal for a low-maintenance lifestyle.

This gorgeous home offers so much. There are lovely family areas – the great room, open to the kitchen and dining spaces, as well as the relaxing sunroom – and quiet places to get away from it all.

The foyer welcomes visitors with its tall ceiling and entry door trimmed with side lights and transom window. A brushed nickel colored bowl light overhead and over-sized floor tile underfoot complete this impressive area of the home.

To the right is the first of three bedrooms, which can also serve as a stylish den. A vaulted ceiling with a transom win-dow gives this room a classic air. Equipped with a double closet, the room is adjacent to a full bath, where a white vanity with a white cultured marble top provides storage.

Off the foyer is the staircase to the loft. This open space, built under the eaves of the home, can be used for extra storage, or as a playroom, a guest room, a craft room, an office, or even a media room. It is one of the spaces where one can have some privacy in the home.

The foyer opens to the great room, where a gas fireplace with a raised hearth is the focal point of the room. With tall windows on both sides and a granite surround, it makes a dramatic statement.

To the left is the open kitchen. A large kitchen island is faced with beige beadboard and topped with Juprana Gold granite, with a full height tile backsplash completing the look. The island sink completes a perfect work triangle with the range and refrigerator. Cabinets in an antiqued toasted almond color coordinate perfectly with the light granite and tile backsplash.

The dining area is adjacent, and beyond, the sunroom beckons. The vaulted ceiling with fan makes this room a comfortable space for reading or conversation, and windows on three walls of the room provide a view of your garden. A door here opens to the poured concrete patio.

Off the kitchen hallway is a bedroom that could make a perfect office. Also nearby are the laundry room and a door to the two car garage. Pull-down stairs in the garage lead to a convenient attic space.

On the other side of the great room is the master suite. The space is made more striking by its deep tray ceiling. The ensuite bath includes a white twin vanity with a white cultured marble top, a step-in shower, a separate water closet, and a generous walk-in closet.

The basement of the home, which includes walls finished with drywall, offers even more potential living space. All the mechanicals of the home are to one side, leaving a large open space that could easily be finished as a recreation room.

In addition to lots reserved for McCarthy villa construction, there are also lots intended for construction of custom-built homes, most of them with 100- or 115-foot frontage. A variety of lots are still available, including water view and ravine lots. Aggressively priced beginning at $52,900, these custom home sites are selling fast. Whether you are a villa or a custom-built home customer, you shouldn’t miss this opportunity to relocate to this premier neighborhood.
