Bright, Spacious, and in the Perfect Location: 31 Hopper Ridge Road

Commanding impressive curb appeal on a quiet, friendly cul-de-sac, this Mill Creek home boasts Charleston-style influences, tons of natural light, and incredible spaciousness along with a thoughtful floor plan in more than 3000 square feet.  With five bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a location that offers resort-style amenities and a prime location near shopping, schools, and entertainment, this home is everything you'll need with room to grow.

Beautiful, with double porches and a lofty peaked roof, this property welcomes you immediately into a smartly planned first floor.  A bright entry, framed by a beautifully upgraded transom door, opens onto the staircase to the right and a formal dining room to the left. 

With windows overlooking the cul-de-sac and front yard, the dining room is bathed in natural light, contrasted with beautiful updates like the dark hardwood floors and bright white wainscotting and crown molding.  Even the light fixture is modern and inviting, and the openness to the entry and the kitchen keeps an open flow even as the room remains a distinctly separate space.

A beautifully upgraded kitchen sits in the heart of this first floor, between the formal dining room and the living area.  Stainless steel appliances and granite countertops are combined with staggered dark wood cabinets to create a kitchen that any home cook would be proud to call his or her own.  Recessed lighting, a separate pantry, and an open overlook into the living area round out this kitchen, though there is plenty of room for an island in the middle if so desired. The hardwood floors continue throughout to contribute to the open feeling of the first floor living spaces.

A wall of windows make the living area beautifully bright, overlooking a spacious backyard that is waiting for you to put your stamp on it. A fireplace creates a focal point for the room, and the openness between the kitchen and living area make it ideal for entertaining and daily living.

The outdoor space is immense, with tons of room for two or four legged friends to play.  Flat and easy to maintain, the backyard also includes a patio that could be easily extended for more entertaining space.  This yard is a blank canvas, which is really exciting. Leave it as is for a wide open and beautiful place to play and wander, or create several different outdoor spaces to maximize your entertaining and outdoor living. The options are endless!

The first floor master bedroom, along with a powder room perfect for guests and a door to the two-car garage, also overlooks the beautiful backyard.  Spacious does not do this master bedroom justice--the incredibly large bedroom offers plenty of space not only for a sleeping area but also offers flexibility to include a sitting area, home office, exercise area, or whatever else you'd need to make this your master retreat.  A walk in closet provides storage, and a wisely-planned master bath capitalizes on the natural light.

I love the plan of this master bath, with the double sinks in the corner and the wraparound mirror. It bounces the natural light from the window into every corner of the bathroom, which also features a separate garden tub and glass shower.

Upstairs, you'll find four additional bedrooms, along with a spacious bonus room that sits above the garage. The landing serves a hub for the upstairs, and could easily be used practically as a sitting area or strategic storage area.   The laundry room is also located upstairs, which is incredibly convenient.

The bonus room is truly something special.  The pictures give you some sense of the scale of this room, but it's quite large and could easily be used as a second living space, as pictured, or a play room, office, hobby room, exercise area, or even as a 6th bedroom with the addition of a closet space. 

The front upstairs bedroom offers, in addition to spaciousness and bright windows, access to the second floor porch.  This would make a great second master, with access to a hall bath.

Three additional spacious bedrooms sit on the main upstairs hallway, along with another good-sized bathroom.
