This project will be our second in the Silver Leaf addition between Auburn and Ft. Wayne off of Tonkel Rd. The project is very similar to the first one completed in Silver Leaf last year in that the scope of work includes an outbuilding.
Not only is this our second project in Silver Leaf but it is our second project with the owners as well. With the desire to move a bit closer to town but keep the rural feel of their existing home, they decided that Silver Leaf fit their needs nicely. As a car collector, the ability to have an outbuilding on the property sealed their decision.
This ranch style home will have 2,618 sq. ft. on the main floor with another 1,348 finished sq. ft. in the basement. There will be 4 bedrooms with 3 located on the main floor and one in the basement. There will be 3 1/2 baths and a formal living room as well as a breakfast nook. The kitchen opens into the great room with 12′ ceilings. There is an Andersen quadruple sliding patio door that opens to the covered porch.
The home was designed to provide nice vistas of the pond, which is on the side of the home, and a that wonderful covered porch with fireplace will take advantage of those lovely views. The home will be clad in fiber-cement vertical siding and manufactured stone.
A bit of an interesting note, the subdivision is on the site of the old Deer Track golf course and this home will sit exactly on the spot that the clubhouse was located.
