Homearama 2013 – House Tour #3

Happy Wednesday!

How have you been enjoying the Homearama tours so far?  I promise more surprises to come!

House #3:  The Alexis
Price:  Sold for $850,000
Square footage:  5,600 square feet

The third house on the tour is a traditional style home, and the “smallest” and “cheapest” of the six homes featured. 

A pretty porch leading to the front door.

The dining room is on your left as you go inside.

I really love the chandy in this dining room.

The family room was straight ahead, with a bank of transom windows, and a fireplace flanked by built-ins.  This room definitely has a more “formal” vibe to it than some of the others – do you think it’s because there is carpet in here vs. the hardwoods flowing through?

The office has a masculine vibe to it, complete with orb chandelier and striking built-ins.

We then made our way to the master suite.  I’m sharing the master bathroom, because as you walked in to the master suite, it was located to the right, prior to entering the actual bedroom portion of the room.  I didn’t really care for this setup, because if someone was taking a tour of my home, they would encounter the bathroom right off the bat.  Just seemed kind of backward to me.  Even though it’s a lovely space.

The master bedroom was a very tranquil and restful sanctuary.

Pretty fireplace with lovely tile work.

The kitchen was bright and spacious.

A nice breakfast bar, and I really love the pendants in here too.

There was also a more informal family room space off the kitchen, that was very cozy and welcoming.  Probably one of my favorite rooms in the house.

Although I really loved this informal eating area too.  Pretty chandelier, layered window treatments, slipcovered chairs and a trestle table – what’s not to like?

And another lovely outdoor area.

Complete with a covered porch and fireplace.  The only thing that seemed off in this space was the size of the TV.

A half bathroom, laundry room and mud room rounded out the main floor.  Not sure I’m feeling the woodsy wallpaper in here.  What do you think?

We made our way upstairs where there were three additional bedrooms.  I really like the trio of mirrors as you reach the top of the stairs.

A fresh and pretty girl’s room – gorgeous bedding!

A boy’s room –

And another fresh looking girl’s room – great color combinations up here.

Then we went to the lower level to finish our tour.  This basement was definitely different from the others in that it wasn’t a walk out like the basements we had seen in the other homes.  Amazing what a difference natural light makes in the overall feel of the room.  Plus, the room had dark carpeting too.

Still plenty of room to hang out and have fun.

Smaller TV, but the picture on that baby was crystal clear, let me tell you.

A rustic bar area for entertaining.

And only one additional bedroom in this basement.  Great for guests!

So, that wraps up today’s tour.  How does this one rank on your list?  Are you having a hard time remembering the other homes – we certainly did!  Here are the links to the other tours to refresh your memory.
See you tomorrow with another great tour on tap!

    I love the paint treatment in the dining room. It looks like a glaze/strie mix or something. Hope all is well friend and I need to go back and look through the rest of the home tours. What a great feature! Hugs!

    Hmmmm. Seems old fashioned. A little 1980s to me….particularly the living room. Also the wall treatments in all these houses, and the silk flowers on the wall of this house and another seem really dated to me. But so fun to view – thank you for sharing!!
