HOMES: 42 Oakwood Drive, Vilonia

Posted: June 6, 2014 - 4:15pm

Your family will find every amenity imaginable in this immaculate custom-built home nestled on three acres at Vilonia.

Offered for sale by The Stewart Team, this home at 42 Oakwood Drive has a two-story design that includes five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. This home is so earthy and inviting, thanks to special features such as the natural rock façade and the use of different designs in the hardwood floors. Plus, the three acres is partially wooded and partially cleared, with lovely mature trees. Extra custom touches, such as tray ceilings and crown molding accents, add a degree of elegance to the home.

A classic foyer design has a modern upgrade in this home with the stunning two-story design, along with a black and white tiled floor and deep red walls. The colors are perfectly complementary to the dark wood on the stair railing and steps. The foyer not only leads to the formal dining room but also to the Great Room, which you enter through a columned and arched doorway. The Great Room has a tall tray ceiling, intricately patterned hardwood floors and a wood burning fireplace with wood mantel and brick surround and hearth.

Moving through the home, you will find a chef’s dream kitchen. Everything about this kitchen combines to make it inviting to family and friends alike. The layout includes a long countertop area with a center island/breakfast bar, and even more space for a couple of extra chairs for visitors. This is a wonderful gathering place for both the cook and the diners! The cathedral ceiling has thick wood beams running the width of the room, and they look perfect with the contrasting dark wood hardwood floors below. The custom cabinets are varied, some with glass fronts, some with solid fronts and some with inserts to promote ease of use. Solid surface countertops and beautifully designed tile backsplash complete the setting.

A separate breakfast room is adjacent to the kitchen, tucked away in a pergola-style design with windows overlooking the pool and a double door offering access to the back yard. The chair rail design with contrasting colors in neutral tones provides a relaxing feel. The formal dining room offers an elegant alternative spot for entertaining. It also features hardwood flooring with a nice wainscoting design on the walls and tall windows for excellent views.

When it’s time to relax, the bedrooms will offer the perfect retreat. The master suite is exceptionally beautiful, featuring a double tray ceiling and walk-in closet in the bedroom. The en-suite bath is nicely updated, with both a walk-in shower and a beautiful claw-foot tub. Other features are a double sink vanity and tiled floors.

Outside, you’ll find even more custom features, including a 28X32 bricked workshop that is only two years old. The shop is complete with knotty pine walls and ceilings, and has a second floor for ample storage. The yard immediately surrounding the home is partially iron fenced and has a huge 20X40 in-ground pool that the entire family can enjoy. And, inside the three-car garage is an 8X8 safe room.

Other features with this home include:

• Oversized laundry room.

• Bonus room that would be perfect for an office or play area.

• Central vacuum.

• Security system.

• Floored attic.

• Ceiling fans.

This home was built in 2005 and has been immaculately maintained. It is in a country setting that is still near to all the amenities of the city, which makes it a must-see for discriminating homebuyers. It is definitely move-in ready and priced to sell at $429,900.
