We would like to welcome you to this gorgeous 3,500 square foot, 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home in the Irondale area. If there was one word to describe this home, it would be Light! Natural light floods every corner of this home.

As you approach the home you are greeted with the most perfectly rustic custom doors that were inspired by a horse barn in Kentucky.

The owner’s desire to mix a Carriage home with modern elegance is inescapable as you move from the garage to the main level and finally the lower level.  You truly feel as though you are floating on clouds from room to room.

The open “u” shape staircase to the lower level bedrooms floods the lower level with light and provides an attractive reception from the main floor to the media room and sleeping room below.

Off the master bedroom is a cozy sitting room painted a beautiful blue that invites you to curl up with a book, sip a warm cup of tea, or complete that work project you have been putting off. The nook is surrounded by 6 foot tall windows that make it a perfect work space during the day or a relaxing retreat in the evening.

We hope you have enjoyed some of our favorite photos of this home during construction. We cannot wait to see the beautiful finished product, and look forward to sharing it with you soon.
