The builder of this featured Home of the Week said it’s the little touches as well as the benefits of forward thinking that the new owners of this house will enjoy in the future. Yes, this house is already sold.

Chad and Sarah Dean of Dean Custom Homes LLC made sure the “green” will be coming back to the new owner because of the green he used in its finishing.

The new owners will be moving in this Frank Betz-designed house this week. Located on Sagefield Drive, this multilevel dwelling is situated on a nice lot — beautifully landscaped, including sidewalks and a concrete drive.

Added touches are custom gable and cornice decorations which have become a trademark of Chad Dean homes.

The stone and brick exterior is complemented with architectural HardiePlank as accents. Once through the front door, the new owners will begin to experience the “eye-appeal” amenities added to the house.

Custom paint colors were used throughout the abode. A wainscotted formal dining area is situated near the modern kitchen. Custom-wood floors were also placed in the dining, kitchen and living room areas of the home. The main living area features an open-air feel with cathedral ceiling and gas-log fireplace as well as beautiful custom moldings, which have been expertly finished and painted.

Modern stainless steel appliances were furnished in this kitchen. Plenty of granite counter space was provided along with wood cabinets, complementing the wood floors. At the rear of the new home, a spacious, relaxing screened-in porch and large open-air deck await family members. This is situated near the kitchen and breakfast nook.

The master bedroom features an extra-depth double-tray ceiling. Accent lighting was used throughout the home. The home has three bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths.

Just off the spacious master suite, a large bath featuring a jetted tub, glass and custom stone shower and large walk-in closet for clothing is furnished. Granite counters were also utilized in this bath as well as the smaller shared bath for the two other bedrooms. Tile was used in all bath areas and a utility room.

A finished bonus area upstairs has plenty of potential if the new owner feels the need to “project for the future,” or it can just be used for storage space. Dean said what the new owners won’t see are the additions which will save money in the future. “We have to build green homes for our clients now. The future savings will return money to their pockets by using these proven ideas such as wrapping the homes, durable HardiePlank, stone, cellulose insulation, controlled air-space, energy-efficient windows and appliances,” Dean said.

Preformed and insulated poured walls were used. The home also features a two-car garage on the main level, complete with electronic openers.

A large basement workspace was also provided.

Alarm systems have also been placed in the home. Cable, ceiling fans and a central heat and air unit are also included amenities.

The Deans have several more new homes in the planning stages. For additional information, contact Chad Dean at 593-7136.
