This home represents the best custom home design with updated finishes in its price range. 13681 Cheswick Boulevard is located in Cheswick Place, one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Carmel.
The floor plan is open and flowing with great natural lighting to make the home bright and welcoming. The natural focus is centered around the kitchen, dining area, and hearth room, but flows easily into the great room, through to the dining room and on to the entry. This is a great home for entertaining, but also for having the family close and together.
The kitchen is updated with granite countertops, new fixtures, and stainless steel appliances. The island has an inviting breakfast bar, with ample room in for a dining table. The hearth room is part of the family living area, complete with fireplace. Whether you are entertaining or just enjoying a bottle of wine with dinner, the kitchen is complete with its own wet bar and wine refrigerator. And for those that like to cook out, the kitchen has it’s own deck complete with awning, just in case the weather should try to deter you.
The great room, with its two-story ceiling and full wall of windows, brings in plenty of light throughout the main floor. The built-in book cases are both beautiful and functional complete with a second fireplace. While formal, the great room is comfortable and inviting.
The dining room is perfectly proportioned with wainscoting trim and elegant columns. While you may not use this room as often as you would like, when the entire family or your house is full of guests the openness is great for extending the table and keeping everyone gathered around.
The two-story entry's wrought iron railing is a stunning first impression to your home. This is just the formal staircase to the upper level as your family will likely use the private second stairway in the hearth room and kitchen.
You may never want to leave the large and inviting master suite. A coffered ceiling with multi-level crown molding and thoughtfully placed accent lighting give volume to an already luxurious retreat. The privacy is complete with the third fireplace and sitting area and direct access to your own exterior retreat on a mid-level deck. The master bath has been recently updated with new cabinets, granite, tile floors and shower walls to feel as though you have entered your private spa as you soak in the jetted tub. The master closet is complete with ample hanging and built-in drawers.
Upstairs you will find the children’s private living spaces. All bedrooms have raised ceilings, walk-in closets and direct access to baths to keep the rooms roomy and inviting. Bedroom two has a perfect private bath and bedrooms three and four share a jack & jill bath with private vanities offering lots of privacy.
As you explore the upstairs living area you will come upon one of the best additions to the home – The Children’s Retreat! Your home shopping is likely over once your children find this hidden gem. How will your family use this space; playroom, homework area, media center….? Yours to decide.
The final indoor destination is the Walk-out Lower Level. You are greeted with a perfectly sized Family Room for home theater or having a few friends over. The updated wet bar with built-in microwave and refrigerator will ensure you and your guests have all the amenities while watching sports, movies or setting up your own game area.
The lower level bedroom five has too many potential uses to list. A child may have their own private retreat, or those longer staying guests may not choose to leave, or as currently used you may set this area up as a workout room. With direct access to the full bath (fourth full bath) and its own access to the lower level walkout patio, the options are limitless.
Finally to the exterior of the home. The privacy of multiple spaces and their potential use are limitless. All exterior living spaces are perfectly facing east for the sun through mid-day and shade in the evening. Direct access from the kitchen to the deck overlooking the pool and its patio allows you to keep an eye on the children. A lower level patio with hot tub secluded for your personal use is a treasure, but the opportunity to have dinner or morning coffee on your master suite deck may seal the deal on this home.
This home is perfect, but the neighborhood and community features give you the assurance this is the perfect home and will maintain future value. Cheswick amenities include two private ponds, a community pool, tennis court and playground all only a block away. The community bike paths will lead you all the way to the Monon Trail and as far as you wish that to take you. If you have elementary aged children you will be happy to know you are only two and a half blocks from Smoky Row Elementary – one of Carmel’s finest schools. And with Carmel’s famous roundabouts you are only minutes from some of the finest shopping at Clay Terrace or Downtown Carmel with it’s exploding food and entertainment options. Everything is close enough to enjoy, but allow you to return to your own personal spaces.
If this home sounds like it is too good to be true, call us. We will be happy to give you a private tour - no one knows this home and the neighborhood better than us, we’ll explain why. Make your own decision, but only bring the children if you are ready to make a move, because they may be hard to take home.
