This home is fresh on the market…and it’s unique, even as far as Cliff Mays go. There’s the usual list of things we look for in a Cliff May: originality, good location, infrastructure upgrades, and aesthetics. This home checks most of the right boxes. I’m actually most intrigued by the exterior and the landscaping. Whenever you have a Cliff May home (or any modern home for that matter), you have a lot of glass. And the outside counts! Mostly because you see so much of it out your windows. I’m a big fan of “living driveways” like this one — they let you reclaim the space.
The inside of this home is a mixed bag. It’s an earlier phase I home, so it has the crank windows and tongue and groove ceilings — a definite plus. I like the master bath, but some of the flooring choices and the fresh-but-off-target kitchen are leaving me feeling a little bummed. I like the two-tone sanded beams and white ceilings — it’s a unique look and one that I’d like to see more often. But the wood cabinets just seem to overload me with woodgrain. Everybody has a balance.
Regardless, this is a wonderful example and it should be on your shopping list for the great location and landscaping alone. Want to check it out? Give us a call or shoot us an email.
