Thank you Magic Valley for voting Mike Shetler Homes as the 2015 Twin Falls Parade of Homes Winner in the Best of Show category $449,000 and above. Seeing this home come together from digging the foundation to a one-of-a-kind dream home was so exciting. Our clients envisioned a modern house with a contemporary feel and we delivered! Most importantly, we made their dreams come true…and that’s what we are about, here at Mike Shetler Homes.
As people walked through (sometimes returning 3-4 times) they would comment on the detailing of this home. They noticed little things that they hadn’t before, such as the hidden pantry, automatic slide-out garbage cans, Christmas light outlets that are on a timer inside a closet, elegant ceiling design patterns and the luxurious backsplash in the kitchen. Perhaps the most striking feature is the double-height space throughout the entire home. The open floor plan is doused with natural light making the home feel even more spacious than it already is.
The detail and design of the entry way made a major impact on our visitors. It is bright, open and inviting, boasting 18 foot walls and adorned with a one-of-a-kind chandelier.
The large gourmet kitchen is equipped with double ovens, a gas cooktop range, and an extra large kitchen island with a prep sink. Let’s not forget the fantastic hidden pantry disguised as kitchen cabinets which has open shelving and a ladder leading up to a deep storage cubby. The combination of the wood flooring and modern gray shaker cabinetry helps break things up and adds warmth. Adding a contrasting granite kitchen island definitely makes a statement as well.
The dining area is adorned with a custom painted tray ceiling that mimics the patterned carpet in the great room; it sets the perfect background to showcase the exquisite chandelier hanging above the dining table.
The living room spares no details as it is bright, huge and luxurious. It provides comfort from the the built-in fire place and the soffits in the ceiling are fitted with concealed lighting, creating a warm ambiance. Favorites in this area are the elegant patterned carpet, stunning basket weave tile lining the built in shelving and the magnificent view of the Courtyard.
When designing their home, our clients wanted the courtyard to be the focal point. We incorporated 2 outdoor custom fire pits coupled with water fountains which are built into the patio floor. The spacious covered porch provides a cool, secluded space for outdoor lounging and entertaining. Beyond the appeal of the courtyard itself, this design feature means a boost in natural light throughout the main level of the home.
Rounding the corner from the great room, you enter the windowed walkway to the private master suite. Just before entering the room, there is an elegant yet cozy reading nook with soft light pouring in from the view of the courtyard. The master bedroom unveils a spacious yet intimate setting—showcasing yet another intricately painted tray ceiling and premium designer carpet.
You can’t help but stop and stare at the impeccable master bathroom. It features beautifully framed mirrors that travel up the 14 foot walls, his and hers vessel sinks with wall mounted faucets, large walk-in spa-like shower and a freestanding tub nestled in front of a magnificent basket weave tiled wall.
The laundry room provides ample storage with custom white cabinets atop a sophisticated gray staggered tile floor. With their family pet in mind, we added in a pet door leading to an outdoor kennel.
