There is nothing like being home for the holidays, and at 2905 South Galena Avenue you can feel the conviviality of the season in the air. This hip, off-beat ranch-style home offers surprises everywhere one looks and spaces just waiting to be decked out for Christmas and New Year’s. Built by Smith Development Company and located on the east side of town, this darling ranch-style home is everything a modern homeowner could want. Three nice-sized bedrooms are offered here, with a spacious open-concept floor plan, perfectly designed bathrooms, and of course beauty everywhere you look.
The curb appeal when you arrive is like that of a bustling mountain town, with xeric landscaping, natural cedar wood posts for the covered porch, eye-catching sconces, an attractive stone choice combined with a timeless slate-colored paint, two-piece glass front door combination, brow dormers and more, this exterior sets the stage for what is to come once inside. Dripping from head to toe with impeccable and unique design choices, the homeowners of this residence cannot want for variety and joy in their new home. Upon entering, you will find your eye wandering to all of the amazing light fixtures sprinkled throughout the main living spaces. The 16-foot foyer makes for an amazingly impressive space to greet family and friends and is topped with an on-trend cage-style light fixture that fills the space and offers interesting light patterns at night. The main living area features a floor-to-ceiling tiled fireplace that combined with the oversized drum chandelier provides drama and height to this space.
Opposite the swanky living space is the kitchen and dining room. All these spaces feature the same cohesive and durable LVT flooring, ensuring their flow with one another. The kitchen island is a true beauty and will be where the gathering centers around. Complimenting the perimeter cabinets’ rich chocolate brown stain is a cheery shade of hunter green paint, marble quartz, chunky and striking modern brass faucet, plus a large sink for cleaning up after all the fun get-togethers. Overhead are two teardropshaped brass pendants that light up and define the space. The marble picket backsplash adds additional fun to this space, but its color scheme makes the trend timeless and fully rounds out the feeling the builders and designers executed in this space. Of course, no kitchen is complete without some beautiful appliances, and here you find the functional and upgraded matte black slate GEs, easy for kiddos since they are fingerprintless. The dining space is perfectly positioned, with another spectacular chandelier and access to the large outdoor covered entertainment space that features permanent decking for easy lifetime maintenance.
Moving to the primary ensuite you find a glorious bedroom and a bathroom that takes perfection to the next level. Double sinks, beautiful warm marble quartz countertops, brass faucets, light fixtures, mirrors and cabinet pulls, all pair impeccably with the beautiful mid-tone stain of the cabinets and tile choices for the floor and the shower. Speaking of the shower, jaws drop here, with a marble tile that has a 3D herringbone pattern, giving it some serious wow factor. Uniquely and smartly paired with an earthy pebble tile for the shower floor, this shower packs a visual punch. This bathroom is conveniently located off the primary closet which connects to the laundry room, all adding to the functionality of this layout.
On the opposite side of the home are two well-proportioned bedrooms and another unique and aesthetically pleasing bathroom. Designed for beauty but adding whimsy, this space is perfect to keep kids’ imaginations piqued and also teach them about design from an early age. Ample cabinetry adds to the function and the flow of this space, but the true treat is the wallpaper choice, which for adults seems like it is out of a design magazine but for kiddos could be seen as from a children’s storybook. Overall, 2905 South Galena Avenue defines what young and fun living is, with all of its amazing finishes and added upgrades. Well-constructed and beautifully designed, its owners can be nothing short of proud to live here and call it home after a long day’s work.
