#7 — The Stoneview Cottage
Daniel DeVol Custom Builder
From the moment of arrival at The Stoneview Cottage, guests know they are in for something special. Situated in beautiful Springboro, Ohio in the highly desirable Country Brook development, The Stoneview Cottage effortlessly combines the welcoming appearance of a Craftsman style home with many amenities that a homeowner might desire, and a growing family requires.
Approaching the custom-made front door, a signature feature of all Daniel DeVol Custom Builder homes, visitors immediately notice the outstanding craftsmanship and high quality of materials.
The home’s exterior utilizes a neutral palette of brick, wooden shake siding, and tumbled stone imported from Canada. Large windows provide plentiful natural light and views to the beauty of outdoors while tapered columns and graceful arches provide visual interest and aesthetic appeal. A colorful array of flowers and plants, chosen with care by the landscaping masterminds at Grandma’s Gardens, add to the home’s charm.
Inside, The Stoneview Cottage is equally delightful. This four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home is big on style and comfort, and it utilizes space efficiently without needlessly increasing the footprint of the house or creating wasted space. The main floor features an open floor plan so the homeowners can gather as a family or entertain with ease. The foyer, kitchen, great room, and dining area flow together so no one feels isolated.
That open feel and opportunity for inclusion in the fun even continues to the outdoor space. Large windows at the back of the great room create a transparent wall to view the backyard, while a nine-foot sliding glass door allows easy access to a covered veranda.
The veranda manages to combine form and function, without sacrificing comfort. The covered space provides shelter while a fan, television, and wood-burning fireplace ensure that the outdoor space can be enjoyed all year long. Stone steps from the veranda lead to a lower, open-air patio. The patio features an exposed aggregate concrete floor for contrast and visual interest.
The heart of this home is the kitchen. The custom-crafted white cabinetry is not only clean and bright, it cleverly conceals several Thermador appliances from view. The large center island makes meal preparation simple with plenty of counter space; the large quartz surface also makes cleanup a breeze.
Although the kitchen is the heart of The Stoneview Cottage, the mudroom could be considered its legs. The mudroom – practically a necessity to contain the clutter of a busy family’s arrivals and departures – has plenty of storage space for adults and small children on the move in all sorts of weather. There are also coat hooks and bench seating for comfort.
For privacy, the master suite and two upstairs bedrooms are placed on opposite sides of the home. The spacious master suite possesses a luxurious master bathroom and a large walk-in closet that allows access to the laundry room through a pocket door. The master bathroom features a curbless, zero entry shower that provides a modern look and ease of use. A tray ceiling and custom-built vanity make this space truly special. Double sinks allow his-and-her space and more than enough storage for the homeowners.
Stunning hand scraped hickory wood floors, custom designed and fabricated for The Stoneview Cottage, are used throughout the home and really help tie the rooms together. The warm appearance of hardwood floors helps to brighten each space and perfectly complements the modern touches used. Hickory wood was also used on the staircase treads. Handcrafted newel posts and balusters were painted for a chic, updated appeal.
The lower level is a space that is ideal for entertaining people of all ages. The area downstairs contains a bar, pub table, pool table area, lounge, and playroom for children. The lounge has a television and ample seating, while the bar features a large counter, sink, and refrigerator to prepare or serve food and beverages easily. The playroom mimics an indoor basketball court with painted lines and a basketball hoop and provides plenty of room for active children to romp, plus space for the storage of toys.
At just at 5,000 square feet, The Stoneview Cottage is proof that custom homes come in all sizes and fine craftsmanship, high-quality materials, and efficient use of space can easily be accommodated!
