I hesitate to make such a strong statement, but I've never been all that great at biting my tongue, so here goes: This house is nearly perfect in every way.
In years past, I used to work for a local homebuilder & part of my job was editing & examining floorplans. Were the bathrooms in the right spot. Did the layout of the family room provide good furniture options? Where was each light fixture going to go? Is it livable, does it have a good flow & rhythm? Needless to say, over the years, I became a little bit of a floorplan snob & its ugly head tends to rear itself more and more the bigger the house gets.
The problem with designing a big house (this one is close to 5,000 sq ft) on a big lot (over an acre) is that you have the curse of being able to include anything & everything, so you add this and then that & since you have the space how about another one of these? You don't have to be creative or clever with where you put it, because you have more than enough space and as such there is the hazard of it becoming a hodge podge of excess. We've all seen it, right?
This house? Well it had no such feeling. That's the thing with homes, it's not the 'stuff' you're buying, it's the feeling. And this, well, I tell you what, it felt a lot like home. While big & expansive, it was warm & cozy, which is a huge compliment to the designers at Toll Brothers.
From cozy outdoor kitchens, to another appointed for a crowd, they really did think of everything.

Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
