Gorgeous Executive Home Backs to Nature Preserves
Many of today’s high-end homebuyers are looking for fairly similar features – a larger home with well-appointed interior in a location that’s both near everything yet provides privacy and seclusion. Many homes and areas provide one or a few of these but rarely all. One community that does is Verona Ridge Subdivision on the far west side of Aurora. These semi-custom homes built by Orleans Builders are located in the perfect area – with easy access to I-88 and prime shopping destinations. Yet the community is tucked back in acres of nature preserves. A gentle stream winds its way through the community and hiking trails crisscross the area and interconnect with miles of other nature trails. If this sounds like a setting you appreciate, continue reading to learn more about one of my newest listings at 833 Verona Ridge Drive.
When you pull up to 833 Verona Ridge Drive, the first thing that strikes you is the ideal location – on a cul-de-sac and just a couple minutes walk to the nearby Orchard Valley Golf Course. The home is located up on a small rise that overlooks the tranquil nature preserves it backs to. The way the home sits and the fact that there are no back neighbors gives this home an overall feeling of peace and seclusion. The exterior of 833 Verona Ridge is quite striking with a beautiful upgraded elevation and front porch. The 3-car garage is a side-load so the front of the home looks tidy, a tell-tale sign that proper garage door repair was being carried out. The home sits on nearly a half-acre lot – perhaps one of the best in the entire community. In the back, the home features a raised cedar deck and a walk-out basement.
Walking into the home you are immediately impressed with the size – including nearly 4000 square feet of living space, you will never run out of room. The home is set up with a traditional layout – formal living room and dining room to the left and a large den or office to the right. Two of the best features of the home are the large kitchen area with attached Florida room and the double-story family room with natural stone fireplace. The kitchen includes high-end, furniture-grade cabinets and a central island. The kitchen also features the Luxury Kitchen upgrade with double ovens and built-in range with hood. The nearby eating area provides plenty of room for a large kitchen table. Along the back of the home next to the kitchen is a large Florida room – this extra space is perfect for a breakfast table – drink your coffee while overlooking the nature preserves behind this home. You can also set this room up as a sun/reading room with Rattan furniture. Next to the Florida room on the back of the home is the large family room. Featuring a double-story ceiling and natural stone fireplace, this will fit even the largest sectional and provides excellent living space for your family.
Upstairs, this home includes four big bedrooms including the large master suite. The home features 9′ ceilings on the first floor as well as one of the second-floor bedrooms and the large loft which is perfect as a second family room, game room or play room. The luxury master bathroom offers a soaker tub, separate shower and tile surround. 833 Verona Ridge also features a full walk-out basement with Geothermal Heating and Air.
