#5 — The Grace

Catalyst Homes, Inc.

Home Information

Located in the Trails of SaddleCreek, Catalyst Homes presents a modern take on the classic farmhouse. The exterior features a mixture of stone, brick and siding in elegant gray shades with white accents. The front door, garage doors and metal roof bring the front elevation together to create a great curb appeal and generates aesthetic interest from the moment of approach.

The main level features an open floor plan that is perfect for a family or entertaining guests. The 11-foot coffered ceilings throughout the great room give the space a grandiose feel, while the custom built-ins ensure that there is ample space to display your most treasured items.

The heart of The Grace is the kitchen and it will delight any amateur chef. The kitchen boasts Bosch appliances, a farmhouse sink, subway tile and a custom island with quartz and butcher block countertops. Wire mesh cabinet fronts tie the room together perfectly.

The owner’s suite is beautifully appointed and provides a retreat as it provides plenty of space and a grand master bathroom. The master bathroom features a modern custom shower, Moen plumbing fixtures, vanity seating and shiplap throughout.

The modern farmhouse contains a seamless mixture of timeless elements and modern finishes as Ashley Doliboa, the interior designer, spent a great deal of time to select each of The Grace’s finishes and ensure that this home possessed the small details that bring it to life. Those touches include a custom ironwork staircase from the great room, accents of shiplap, exposed beams and reclaimed wood. Even the custom mud room beautifully combines form and function with sufficient cubbies for a family, plus wire mesh cabinets to artfully contain a family’s clutter.

The downstairs area is equally impressive and fees like an extremely spacious extension of the upstairs. With nine-foot ceilings and a full walkout, the lower level utilizes an open floor plan that includes a living area, a custom bar and recreation area that can be used for a number of purposes. The bar features a concrete counter, subway tile backsplash and shiplap. It also contains two bedrooms, a full bathroom and a spacious storage area.

If you are considering a new home build or remodel for your home, The Grace is a must-see on your Homearama tour!
