Brick veneer gives a stately look of permanence to the large, luxurious Huntsville, and it has an intriguing floor plan. Its entire left wing angles toward its right wing at the front.
Handsome raised brick trim crowns the lofty, arched entry, highlights windows, underscores the entire front facade, and caps the chimney. Wooden shutters provide a touch of nostalgic warmth.
Soft light washes into the high-ceilinged foyer through sidelights and a trio of arched transoms. Double doors on the left open into an interestingly shaped parlor. Two of the corners have standard right angles, and two do not. Wide shelves flank a gas fireplace (one of four), and wide windows face the front.
Passing under two display shelves brings you into a spacious great room with a stepped ceiling treatment. Light washes into this bright area through an angled rear wall with a wealth of windows. Cabinets on both sides of the fireplace could house a home entertainment center.
Standing at the kitchen sink, you can keep tabs on happenings in the great room, as well as the bayed dining area. Other kitchen amenities include: a raised conversation bar, walk-in pantry, and built-in appliances. A powder room is nearby, as is an extra-large utility room, which links to the four-car garage.
The Huntsville's posh master suite boasts a gas fireplace and two roomy walk-in closets, plus a skylit bathroom with a luxurious spa tub, walk-in shower and private toilet. The other ground-floor bedroom has direct access to another bathroom.
A third bedroom and bathroom are upstairs, along with a large vaulted room that could be used as a fourth bedroom, home office, studio, or whatever suits. It has its own fireplace and deck.
