The exterior of this large home in Lincoln is made from brick and stucco, chosen by architect Arris Design to match this custom home to its neighborhood. The design is Mediterranean in spirit, most notable in the curved grand staircase, arched doorways, and outdoor pool and cabana.
Inside, large open spaces run throughout the main level; the double front doors open to a spacious hall abutted by an open living room framed by a large arched way and finished with a high coffered ceiling. All three sides of the U-shaped kitchen are lined with painted millwork cabinets and appliances — including a built-in refrigerator and freezer drawer. The space is maximized with the inclusion of a large center island built of dark wood and completed with the same onyx-colored granite of the countertops.
Hardwoods run throughout the first floor and up the stairs to the second floor. Here the master bedroom features an expanse of windows letting in generous amounts of natural light; millwork paneling beneath exemplifies the attention to detail that went into this home’s design and execution. Off the master bedroom, the en suite bath includes a luxurious built-in tub with soapstone ledge.
Opening off the living room’s French doors, a field stone patio hosts an outdoor eating and entertaining area; a path runs from here past the stately stone retaining wall to the pool area complete with hot tub and cabana designed to match the main house’s exterior. The landscaping work maintained the large existing trees, allowing the home both privacy and ample greenery.
