There are homes then there are distinctive homes…Near the summit in Fountaingrove on a private cul-de-sac bustling with new construction activity rests the newest Prodigy Real Estate showcase home. Lead by a husband and wife team, Nicole & Louis, their distinct style and craftsmanship is clear from the moment you first glance at the exterior through the entry of the custom nine-foot tall modern door. Your senses become overwhelmed by the textures, colors, design and artisanry on display in every detail.
Nicole & Louis brought thoughtful planning to the table and set it masterfully to take advantage of the locality and presence a home of this standard deserves. Upon initial site acquisition there was extensive thought related to orientation and features as to how the new residence will live and function for its new owners. The lot was carefully walked, then laid out to accommodate just the right ingredients by arranging improved soil strategies along with a stalwart French Drain system to ensure the homes integrity, usability and longevity.
With the table set, Nicole & Louis set out to design a winning combination of a desirable floor plan – served by the highest quality of features – and finished by artisans who cared extensively about their work. Elevating this home, they chose Andersen windows and doors along with smooth stucco (with embedded color) to grace the exterior creating a warm and modern feel then anointed it with custom steel awnings, Minka Lavery lighting, C.H.I. Sterling series garage doors as well as both standing seam steel and concrete roofs for character and resiliency.
Turning their eyes and hearts to the interior they knew this home must be special. Having surveyed the market they realized that having a primary master suite and office on the main level of the home was key to most customers. They went the extra mile to afford an additional en-suite bedroom on this same floor then looked to the space above to capture a junior master suite, secondary bedroom and separate lounging area allowing for some separation while clearly delivering on the Great Room lifestyle concept so demanded within the marketplace which is vividly on display and enhanced by the Andersen bi-folding glass wall which allows you to simply access the expansive California room to extend your year round outdoor living experience.
In continuing to bring the design vision to life they needed to select the appropriate materials to complete it. Utilizing regional artisans to construct and install both rift-sawn, grain matching custom cabinetry with pure-white acrylic eye-line doors in the kitchen was paramount to staying with the warm modern motif. Then selecting Sub-zero for the refrigeration along with a Wolf double oven range and micro-drawer for fulfilling the cooking requirements while rounding it out with an ultra-premium Cove dishwasher – keeping the art of cleaning quiet. Capping the stylish kitchen are quartz counters showcasing a waterfall edge detail thereby maintaining a modern feel.
The same passion for details can be seen in the hand selected wide-plank walnut floors, custom stair railings and high-line fixtures & faucets by Brizo, Kohler, Moen & Mirabelle that have been strategically used throughout.
