Architecturally beautiful, this Nielson Construction home sits surrounded by open land in eastern Sioux Falls. The exterior paint is an extra white that stands out from the thick black trim surrounding the 4-stall garage doors, efficient white pane windows and contemporary front door. The covered concrete front porch pairs perfectly with two dry stack stone pillars to welcome you home.
Gliding through the front door, it is as if you are still outside. The glass framing the 5-pane front door allows natural light to flood through as you ask yourself if you forgot to shut the door. A contemporary cylindrical chandelier hangs softly between the beams of the tray ceiling above the entryway. A carpeted office, which could be another bedroom, is situated diagonally off the entryway and contains a walk-in closet. Across the way, a tiled drop zone and laundry area lead you to the three-stall garage.
Light-colored wood flooring, trimmed with sleek grey trim, leads you to the open concept main living area. Straight ahead, a great room is made cozy thanks to contemporary carpet and an electric fireplace. The fireplace, covered in elongated dark stone, is low and wide, creating the ideal place to display a large TV or piece of art. Built-in floating shelves enhance the open space and provide another place to display your favorite accessories. A large picture window, ceiling fan and tray ceiling with recessed lighting complete this open yet defined living space.
Another massive picture window, along with a stylish circular chandelier, lights up the dining area. The Sliding doors lead guests outside to a spacious covered cedar deck.
The grey trim found throughout the home seemingly begins its presence in the kitchen. With a curved island comprised of a beautifully balanced granite countertop and grey base, the lower cabinets match those surrounding the stainless steel appliances. The staggered upper driftwood cabinets, adorned with dark hardware, are given a contemporary farmhouse look with a brushed antique white finish. Tying these beautiful colors together is a herringbone subway tile backsplash in a true grey, along with three black spiral pendant lights hovering above the island. A walk-in pantry with decorative smoky glass finishes off the functional space.
A hallway just beyond the kitchen leads to two bedrooms with double closets, plush carpet, and large windows. The full bath, conveniently placed next to a linen closet, is designed with a solid quartz countertop atop stained grey cabinets and warm grey tile on the floor.
Opposite the main bedrooms is the master suite. A richer, deeper grey trim stands out amongst the grey walls, flowing into the tray ceiling with designer beams and a modern ceiling fan. A walk-in closet, complete with rods and shelves, can be closed off by a pocket door and sits adjacent to the master bath. A large mirror opens up the space even more, running the length of the dual sink quartz vanity top. Black waterfall faucets coordinate with the cabinetry hardware, while brushed nickel hardware fixtures are seen on the linen closet and in the stunning walk-in tile shower. Dark grey tile spans the floor of the shower, and a white marble design tile runs vertically along one wall. The master suite is the definition of a relaxing retreat.
The lower level of this beautiful ranch home is host to a large family room with gas fireplace, two more bedrooms and a full bath. A wooden sliding glass door opens to a large concrete patio complete with landscaping and views that are endless. Throughout this fully finished 3,365-square-foot home, Nielson Construction has added architectural detail and quality to every room under the roof.
