The Calista’s innate sense of hospitality extends beyond the threshold. From the moment they enter the 1,827 square foot home, guests are greeted by a vibrant open concept that creates a seamless flow between the kitchen, family and dining rooms. During the day, this space is bathed in natural light thanks to the thoughtful placement of windows throughout each room. Just beyond the kitchen’s central island – which performs double-duty as a casual dining spot and food prep station – a powder room, two-car garage and staircase await. This intentional arrangement means they don’t impede the connectivity between main living spaces. Whereas the first floor conveys a purely social vibe, the second floor is devoted to privacy. A central loft serves a dual function as secondary gathering space and buffer between sleeping quarters. The spacious owner’s retreat with sunny bank of windows, walk-in closet, owner’s bath and optional convenient door to the utility room is set at the front of the home. At the rear, two additional bedrooms overlook the backyard and share a full bath. This positioning of the bedrooms ensures that each family member enjoys their own well-deserved sense of space.

Boasting a subtly masculine transitional design, The Calista is classic and contemporary all at once. A tranquil color story of gray and crisp white is contrasted against rich cinnamon hardwoods on the main floor and plush ivory carpet on the second floor. Visual interest abounds – from the shiplap TV wall in the family room to the floating shelves in the kitchen, where bold gray cabinets with matte black hardware pop against the glossy white subway tile backsplash and light quartz countertops.
Upstairs, a bank of clerestory windows and eye-catching color block accent wall define the loft. The built-in work station with floating shelves and adjacent cubby bench has the makings of an on-trend homework zone or casual home office. Vertical wood slats perform double duty as a headboard and accent wall in the owner’s retreat while the abundance of variegated tile in the owner’s bath conveys a sense of luxury.
