Craftsman Walkout Basement
Craftsman Walkout Basement by Blythe Building Company, LLC
For those who are looking for a home that is distinguished, modern, made with the best quality materials, and individually tailored just for them, a Blythe Building Company (BBC) custom home is a dream come true. This house in Saluda River Club in Lexington, SC is an example of how beautifully BBC brings people’s dreams of a new home to life.
From the multiple gables, fiber cement siding, and operable shutters to the stacked stone facade and craftsman style porch columns, this elegant home welcomes its residents and visitors alike with its warmth, southern charm, and undeniable curb appeal.
A home’s personality shines through the most in the kitchen where everyone in the family tends to gather. What better way to invite people to stay for awhile than to combine warm rustic wood elements with sleek, modern, up-to-the-minute style and technology? A marble-topped kitchen island is functional, timelessly beautiful, and durable.
This kitchen would be the perfect place for rolling out cookie dough, baking, and making treasured family memories together. It would also be an ideal location for afternoon snacks and a homework station for the kids, close to mom or dad’s watchful eye.
Whether you are a novice or an experienced chef, you’ll appreciate having a bright, clean kitchen workspace. Imagine the culinary possibilities if you had the right equipment like a convection oven, a microwave drawer, and a gas stove at your disposal in your own kitchen to inspire you.
This kitchen has plenty of style with the gorgeous white subway tile backsplash and rustic hickory wood accent over the stove. Even the lighting under the cabinets and in the upper glass cabinets adds to the ambiance and beauty of this space. Each detail is important. Nothing is overlooked.
Not only is this kitchen beautiful, but it is also functional! A tall, rounded, champagne bronze finished kitchen faucet makes clean-up easy for dishes, pots, and pans. The extra deep stainless steel farm kitchen sink provides plenty of space for maneuvering large items. And the 36 inch Thermador gas range gets the job done well.
BBC adds a lot of character to this house by mixing wood elements with a streamlined modern design. This rustic hickory wide-plank wood flooring along with the old hand honed beams — reclaimed from a South Carolina barn tear down — add depth, texture, and interest. Just the right chandelier and lighting fixtures also help to seamlessly blend old world style with a contemporary space.
White trim with neutral shades of gray is very popular today because this combination speaks tranquility and peace into the home. This color scheme is also easy to coordinate with almost any style or color of furniture. Long-lasting hardwood floors make for extremely easy cleaning. A built-in bookshelf provides storage and a
wonderful area to display your most treasured art pieces and books. The 42-inch gas fireplace with Classic Stone Creation mantle provides a stunning focal point for the room. Through the window, there is a peak at a gorgeous stone fireplace on the back porch, as well.
The elegance continues into the formal dining room where the custom floor to ceiling wainscoting capped with a three-piece crown molding takes center stage. A dining room is all about hospitality. This space can easily accommodate everything from intimate family dinners to grand celebrations with friends, neighbors, and extended family.
If you are looking for even more refinement, a living room with magnificent coffered ceilings is your ticket. Deep blue shades are extremely popular for living
rooms as they bring a bit of the calming influence of nature into your home’s living space. The combination of rich hues and textures creates a cozy, yet opulent, environment.
The sky’s the limit for master bathroom designs with BBC. How about a wide double vanity with plenty of storage for his and her things? And take your pick of beautiful stone like marble for your countertops and porcelain tile for your floors. Don’t forget to think about your lighting options. This lighting arrangement is bright, yet not harsh. It’s perfect whether you are getting ready to face a brand new day or a night out on the town.
A master bathroom wouldn’t be complete without a big jetted tub. The chrome cross handle faucets and tub filler are always at the ready to provide a perfect retreat for you when you need just a little bit of “me time.”
For the epitome of luxury, why not splurge on an oversized shower with white subway tile with a wavy flare? Step onto the mosaic hexagon floor tiles in this shower and you’ll feel like you have your own spa as you enjoy the four body sprays and the fixed shower head. Switch over to the hand-held shower head if you’d like to sit and relax on the built-in shower bench.
No matter what your style, Blythe Building Company has the talent, experience, and know-how to turn your dream house into reality.
