The Home of Your Life! The Delaney in Barton’s Grove

The Home of Your Life! The Delaney in Barton’s Grove

Located in this beautiful oasis of Barton’s Grove is one of our newer floor plans, The Delaney: a move-in ready, custom home perfect for you and your family!  This basement floor plan features a charming exterior of stone and shake as well as a corner-wrap porch.  The gray tones of the exterior materials are successfully paired with darker decorative accents and support columns.

The calming color scheme is reflected on the interior as well from the light gray walls and the stained hardwood flooring and handrails.  A darker gray/green color is used in the dining room which is an elegant contrast to the incredible trim and unique light fixtures!  One of the eye-catching touches to this home is the curved panel ceiling in the galley leading through the butler’s pantry and into the gourmet kitchen. Our designers created a beautiful space by using both dark and light cabinetry, an over-sized island and decorative tile patterns above the cooktop.  Small details such as the curved cabinet above the cooktop (a complement to the curved ceiling at the butler’s pantry) and the concealed door in the butler’s pantry (leading to fantastic wine storage!) add to the aforementioned charm and grace of the home.  Additional outstanding features include the dramatic coffered ceilings and built-in shelving in the family room, the spectacular wooded view from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the breakfast room, the open living area, cozy mudroom, screen porch, and deck.  A guest suite completes the first floor.

The Delaney also boasts a full basement with a study, rec room, full bath, patio and ample storage.  This area gives the flex space needed for either guests, teenagers, in-laws, or just additional space to live, work and play!  A generous master suite can be found on the second floor as well as another rec room, 3 secondary bedrooms and two more baths.

Barton’s Grove is one of those communities that you will regret not building in while you had the opportunity!  Located between the convenience of Creedmoor Road amenities and the recreation of Falls Lake, Barton’s Grove offers the best of all worlds including estate-style custom homes on expansive, wooded home sites averaging 2 acres in size!

We would love to make The Delaney “The Home of Your Life!”
