Ranch style homes have always been popular for their accommodating one-story layouts. The McAllister takes the idea of main-floor living and gives it a thoughtful makeover for modern families, balancing wide-open, casual spaces with just the right amount of formal space. The kitchen, great room and breakfast nook flow together to create a space that’s perfect for entertaining. And a separate dining room invites more sit-down meals with family and dinner parties that continue well into the evening.

Our homeowners have made this gorgeous McAllister into something you have never seen! The Lifetime Dimensional shingles highlight the increased roof pitch and multiple reverse gables. Beautiful Charter Oak siding compliments the stone wainscot and foundation wrap, as well as the shake siding accents at the front gables. The front porch has been extended and features Craftsman style columns and a Craftsman style dormer above. The garage is at a 45 degree angle creating a courtyard driveway. An enlarged 3rd car garage has been added and each bay has individual Sonoma style garage doors with window panels. Stairs in the garage grant you easy access to the basement. A large, covered porch at the rear of the home also has stunning Craftsman style columns. The exterior customizations are only the beginning! The inside of the home has been completely redesigned and an additional 1,555 square feet of living space has been added. An 11’ ceiling in the foyer makes a great first impression. 9’ ceilings throughout the home are heightened in the custom sunroom where a Cathedral ceiling will wow you. The beautifully redesigned kitchen features Seneca Ridge Oak cabinets, solid surface countertops, and an island with eat ledge. An 8’ sliding glass door at the breakfast room brings the outdoors in. Thanks to the open floor plan, the 42” direct vent gas fireplace with an stunning stone face, raised hearth and St. Cloud surround can be enjoyed from anywhere in the main living area. The windows have been jambed and cased to match the 5 ¼” painted base trim throughout. Crown molding has been added to the foyer, dining room, powder room and master suite. A chair rail adds additional elegance to the dining room. Architrave headers above the windows in the sunroom, living room, dining room and breakfast room give the home an impressive look. The master suite is comprised of a spacious bedroom, a huge walk-in closet and a luxury master bath. The master bath features a custom shower with cultured marble walls and floor, a hand-held shower head, a garden tub, a custom double vanity with a cultured marble vanity top and Ashfield Tuscan Bronze bath faucets. Make sure you take the oak rail and spindles staircase to the finished basement where even more living space awaits!
