Custom Millwork, Unique Décor Make Olympia Home Stand Out

Custom Millwork, Unique Décor Make Olympia Home Stand Out

When a carpenter builds his dream home, it looks like a model house — with plenty of upgrades and personal touches. That is what we find in this month’s featured home. Located in the Olympia community, this five-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath, single-family home is like no other. The custom millwork alone makes it stand out. Factor in its water views, upgraded hurricane protection and convenient location, and there’s much to love about this unique Wellington home.


Dining Room: No expense was spared when it came to the crown molding and trim work in the formal dining room. A large mirror wall and tray ceiling finish the space, while a built-in display shelf around the corner marks the front foyer. Easy-care tile extends throughout the entire downstairs, making for a contiguous, seamless look.


Family Room: Recessed lighting provides ambience to the family room but, during the day, natural sunlight floods the space. Sweeping French doors open to the extended covered patio and manicured backyard.


Living Room: Designed for the way today’s families live, this open concept living room/dining room area features wide open spaces, as well as a statement wall perfect for displaying artwork.


Kitchen: The light palette of the kitchen is offset by the dark counters, while a bold marble tile backsplash keeps things interesting. The large island features a vegetable sink, and a walk-in pantry offers extra storage.


Staircase: A hardwood staircase with custom-made wrought-iron balustrades commands attention as a focal point of the home. All five bedrooms are conveniently located upstairs, away from the hub-bub of downstairs traffic.


Breakfast Nook: The breakfast nook is clearly defined by the stepped ceiling feature, adding prominence to the chandelier. The encased windows show off the distinctive millwork present throughout the home.


Patio: A large, screened-in patio with a fixed-draped cabana offers comfort and privacy, while pavers imbue the area with a sense of cobblestone charm.


Master Bath: The master bath features a large soaking tub, a walk-in shower, double vanity sinks and plenty of light.


Master Bedroom: The master bedroom features flooring that is a departure from the downstairs tile. Brazilian cherry hardwood extends throughout the upstairs. The room also has a coffered ceiling and a view of the sunset through tinted windows.


Front Elevation: A two-car garage and shaded entryway with stone walking paths mark the front of the home, which also features well-maintained native landscaping.

Family Room: Off-camera, the kitchen opens into this breakfast area and comfortable family room. The space features wonderful views of the outdoors through angled clerestory windows and glass doors across the whole back of the house.


Living Room: A wood-burning fireplace and plenty of natural light ensures that this living room lives up to its name. The homeowners and guests alike will find it to be a convenient and comfortable place to gather.

Dining Room: This dining room is easily decked out for formal holiday gatherings. The open floor plan allows the hosts to include everyone in the party, whether they’re indoors or out. Vaulted sloped ceilings, triple French doors opening to the patio and a fireplace with plenty of vertical space give this great room its pop of pizzazz.


Master Bath: This master bath features the same marble flooring that extends throughout the home. A custom-made, oversized two-person Jacuzzi tub is one option, while the separate walk-in shower is another. The marble countertops extend off-camera to include two sinks and recessed lighting that keeps everything light and bright.


Guest Bedrooms: A split bedroom plan assures privacy in the master bedroom, while each of the four generously sized guest bedrooms has its own bathroom and ceiling fan. There is also a powder room off the living room. The guest rooms also feature toe-friendly carpet and walk-in closets, while the master bedroom has dual closets and a dressing area, as well as its large bath.

Townhome In Wellington’s Edge Offers Resort Lifestyle On A Budget

Townhome In Wellington’s Edge Offers Resort Lifestyle On A Budget

If you’ve been looking for a home in Wellington but thought you could never afford the lifestyle, there are plenty of properties available for those with lower budgets. For example, this property in Wellington’s Edge. Located across from the Mall at Wellington Green, Wellington’s Edge offers single-family homes, villas and townhomes, like this one in Pelican Key. Its pastel exterior and island-style metal roof give it a vacation vibe all year long, as do the neighborhood’s three community pools, tennis courts and clubhouse, complete with a fitness center. A manned, guarded entrance gives residents peace of mind, and the many lakes and preserves throughout the community keep nature close at hand.

Front Entrance: As comfortable in Key West as in Wellington, this three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home has a charming feel. A large green space runs adjacent to this well-landscaped end unit, making the front yard seem even larger than it is.

Family Room: One of the nicer upgrades to this Pelican Key townhome is the installation of glass French doors and matching side windows. Even with the media center nearby, the outdoors beckon.

Dining Area: Because of how this home is situated, with the front door facing south, the homeowners are never blinded by the sun while perusing the morning paper or enjoying an evening meal. Aside from the dinette area, there is barstool space in the kitchen.

Kitchen: Clean and crisp, this white kitchen beckons. A tall, cabinet-style pantry keeps all ingredients and staples within arm’s reach, and in case of spills, the ceramic tile is quite forgiving, offering easy clean-up.

Great Room: Light, bright and open are key words to describe this living space, with its tall ceilings and loft overlook. Beyond the bookcase and knee wall is the entrance foyer. While all windows have accordion shutters, impact-resistant glass has been installed in all the upstairs windows.

Master Bedroom: The first-floor master bedroom offers unrestricted access to the bathroom area. For those with limited mobility, not wrestling with heavy doors can be a real help. Walk-in closets also make things easier.

Exercise Room: This space, one of two upstairs guest rooms, is currently being used as exercise room, but it could also be a library, home office or craft space. There is additional bonus space in the loft area.

Bathroom: Simplicity dominates this spacious bathroom, allowing the homeowners to personalize the neutral space.

Screened-In Patio: Kick back and relax on this screened-in lanai, which offers a nicely landscaped, secluded place to escape.

The large corner windows usher in the sunshine during the day and a glimpse of the stars at night. Ceramic tile creates an easy visual flow, connecting all areas of the house but the bedrooms.

Outdoor Kitchen: A giant seamless three-panel window overlooks the outdoor kitchen and lanai. From this cozy curved window seat, the homeowners can take in the activity around the pool or face forward to look into a more casual eating area off of the kitchen.

Living Room: Double French doors and a relaxed floor plan make this living room the real heart of the home. An ornate fireplace located off camera ups the warmth of the space.

Kitchen: Stainless steel gas appliances paired with a black wall oven aren’t the only design details that make this kitchen out of the ordinary. A curved guest bar that seats eight, a granite-topped double island with a built-in wine cooler and a hardworking pantry make this spacious kitchen a chef’s delight.

Master Bedroom: The master bedroom takes on a resort feel with numerous windows offering tropical views, a gently turning ceiling fan in a double tray ceiling and chocolate-rich manufactured hardwood flooring. The roomy seating area offers a place to unwind after a long day.

Dining Room: The elegant formal dining room, with its sparkling chandelier, is located just inside the front entrance with an office nearby. Arched doorways give a silent nod to luxury.
