This beautiful “Home of the Week” in Silver Springs is a single-level home, keeps with the Craftsman style of the area, and is loaded with features, including one of its main selling points, energy efficiency.

Virgil Allen built this home, keeping with the standards set in the neighborhood.

Rhee Epperson of ReMax Real Estate Professionals is the listing agent for 230 Silver Springs Trail.

The three-bedroom house is built into the wooded landscape of Silver Springs development, which is a short drive off Freewill Road and just past Mountain Brook and Mountain Point.

The home has approximately 1,530 square feet of finished living space.

Situated on a nice, level lot, a concrete drive and sidewalks have already been installed. The front porch is finished with brick and Craftsman-style pillars.

Beautiful and virtually maintenance-free vinyl covers the rest of the exterior.

Once inside the home, carpeting was used in the great room and beautiful hardwood floors were installed in the kitchen.

Energy efficient Low-e window treatments were used throughout the new home as well as insulation between the studs.

This also creates a tough, effective sound barrier.

A combined dining and galley-style kitchen area are located near the rear door and dining on the outdoor deck is possible.

Beautiful custom-built cabinetry, topped with a durable counter space and Energy Star rated Whirlpool appliances, have also been installed.

Recessed lighting was also installed.

Energy-efficient doors lead to a wood deck at the rear of the home.

The master bedroom in the home was carpeted.

Energy-saving ceiling fans are also installed throughout. Other features include cable and TV wiring and smoke alarms installed.

Custom tile flooring was utilized in the master bath and other bathroom areas.

The home has two baths, one of which is shared by the other two bedrooms and is centrally located for guest use as well.

The master bedroom was finished with a custom specialty ceiling and large doorways.

The master bedroom also has a large closet which will be completed with custom shelving and hanging systems.

This home has been built “Energy Right” and also features a central heating and air system.

A two-car garage was incorporated, complete with electronic openers. The property is zoned for county schools. To reach this custom Virgil Allen home, travel Candies Lane to Freewill Road. Cross Freewill Road and continue to travel west past Mountain Brook and Mountain Point. Silver Springs is approximately a fourth of mile on the right.

The home is listed at $189,900.
