Fawn Lake is full of very nice homes. Some of them set themselves apart in one way or another. Still others particularly stand out, and the home at 10508 Chatham Ridge Way is one of those.
There is a lot to take in here, both inside and out the single-story home with full finished basement. Curb appeal is certainly covered, with a front yard of tidy grass flowing around islands of landscaping and mulch. The house itself, with its many gables, large arched-transom windows with crosshatched grilles and combination stone and stucco exterior, makes a handsome appearance.
For golfing fanatics, the house backs up to the Fawn Lake course's 14th fairway, so the view of a grassy yard extends well beyond the house.
Owners James and Margaret Spicer have decided to place the home on the market, listing it with Amy Cherry Taylor of Avery Hess Realtors. The asking price is $899,900.
Altogether, the house, built in 2007, has 6,266 square feet of living space with five bedrooms and four full bathrooms on the two levels. It sits on a lot just under two-thirds of an acre.
A particularly attractive element of the design is how well the house merges with its outdoor living areas.
Off the main-level living area is a large flagstone patio, perfect for both entertaining or simply enjoying time or a meal with family.
A unique space is the alcove that's accessible either from the basement or via the steps down from the main-level patio. The covered, open-air, flagstone-covered space offers a wonderful al fresco experience, and it's now decorated to be reminiscent of an Italian bistro.
Out front, visitors arrive on an asphalt drive that serves the three-car garage. The garage door style not only blends well with the home's exterior, it enhances it.
THE INDOOR TOUR
Inside the main double door is a welcoming foyer with a two-tone hardwood floor inlay. Immediately noticeable is the detailed trim work, such as crown molding with flourishes at the corners.
The open floor floor plan lends a feel of spaciousness but not at all the cavernous feel of some high-square-footage homes.
