“The Nolan Ford,” by Martin Custom Homes, is a traditional-style, family-friendly home, which was designed to accommodate changes in today’s lifestyles.

The home offers space for family activities, working from home, and accommodating guests and relatives in a first-floor bedroom suite.

The house boasts over 3,200 square feet of living space, including almost 800 in the finished walk-out basement.

The first floor has an open concept floor plan and features a large mudroom, with cubbies and a bench, a walk-in closet and a media closet.

The great room has a gas fireplace, flanked by enclosed shelving and bookshelves.

Off the entrance foyer is a guest suite with a large, tiled shower.

The kitchen has a large two-level island, with counter seating, plenty of cabinets, quartzite counters, and a walk-in pantry. Kitchen appliances include a two-freezer refrigerator, slide-in gas range, featuring both convection and built-in air-fryer. Enjoy meals in the dining area off the kitchen or take meals out onto the covered deck. The second floor has a large owner’s suite, two large additional bedrooms, and a convenient laundry room.

The space also includes a large home office, full bath, playroom, and exercise room with “Rubberstone” floor. There is even space for storage.
