Brick home’s design emphasizes cozy areas, entertaining spaces

Listed for $899,900 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the brick house at 3859 Murphys Crossing has about 6,470 square feet of living space, including the finished, walk-out lower level. The house sits on a corner lot with stone accented tree islands, a paver-brick driveway and sculptured gardens.

A wrought-iron fence surrounds the back yard where stone steps lead down to the paver-brick patio and in-ground swimming pool, Jacuzzi and water fountain. Lush landscaping surrounds the pool and shades the balcony composite deck.

Formal entry opens into a two-story foyer with a crystal chandelier visible from the outside through arched window above the leaded-glass transom and front door. An open wooden staircase curves up to a loft hallway where three, bedroom suites are accessible.

The formal living room to the right has a bay bump-out and a gas fireplace with a fluted wood mantel. The formal dining room to the left has a box window, wainscoting, crown molding and a crystal chandelier. Brazilian hardwood floor fills the foyer and continues into the dining room and into the great room, kitchen, breakfast room and hallway.

A volume ceiling gives the great room a spacious feel and allows for an arched and picture window to provide views of the back yard. A stone, gas fireplace is the centerpiece to the room and has a wood mantel and raised hearth. The fireplace is flanked by built-in cabinetry.

A large opening expands the great room into the kitchen, allowing the kitchen to share the great room’s aesthetics. An island has seating for four and creates a wrap-around work space with granite countertops. Cabinetry fills four walls of the kitchen and includes plate racks, open shelves and an appliance garage. Matching wood panels cover the sub-zero refrigerator and a pantry closet adds extra storage.

A box window with an arch is above the double sink, and stainless-steel appliances include a dishwasher, trash compactor, gas cook-top and wall ovens.

A bay breakfast room has panoramic views of the back yard, and a former planning desk that has been converted into a coffee station. French doors open to a sun room with five arched windows and ceramic-tile flooring. A glass door between the sun room and breakfast room opens to the composite balcony deck with steps that lead down to the paver patio.

A short hallway from the kitchen and great room leads to the laundry room with its folding counter and wash sink and interior access to the oversized, three-car garage.

Another hallway from the great room ends at the main-bedroom suite. French doors open into a study with a wall of built-in bookcases and cabinetry, arched corner windows, wainscoting and crown molding.

The main bedroom has a tray ceiling, a gas fireplace with wood mantel and flanked by windows. The bath has been updated with a double sink vanity with lighted glass-front cabinets and granite countertops, a free-standing soaking tub below an arched window with plantation shutters, a walk-in shower with multiple shower heads and marble and glass surround. A rotating mirror opens into a walk-in closet with built-in organizers.

Across the hallway from the main bedroom is an open staircase that leads to the finished lower level. The recreation room has a brick, gas fireplace with wood mantel and several daylight windows. Tucked into one corner is a remodeled wet bar with wine racks, wine cooler, single basin sink, ledgestone backdrop and double-tier countertop island bar.

French doors open from the recreation room to the swimming pool deck. There is a full bathroom with a walk-in shower and single-sink vanity.

The second floor has three bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. One bedroom has a bay window with seat. One bath room has a tub/shower while the other two have walk-in showers.
