Unobtainable House of the Month

17 Westwind Drive, Lemoyne

This home is an absolute stunner. Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. The owners had this home built by custom builder Ralph Iacono in 2003 and didn’t miss a single detail in this elegant home. Let’s take a closer look.

Castle-like Exterior

The all-brick facade, double door entrance featuring decorative glass and the crescent driveway immediately alerts the visitor to the majesty of this home. To add a custom touch, the owners installed a Bordeau window dormer in the center flanked by a pair of eyebrow louver dormers. The decorative under eave architectural corbels with cast stone window trim add to the stately exterior.

Grand Entry with Chandelier on Lift System

There is a total of eight crystal chandeliers in the home with the two largest chandeliers on lifts. The Aladdin Light Lift helps you easily maintain the chandelier with the motorized chandelier lift system. Cleaning and changing of bulbs can be done by anyone at anytime.

Formal Entertaining Area

Three large arched windows flood the formal entertaining area with natural light. The arched windows add architectural interest to the home. The flooring is a warm, rich Brazilian cherry hardwood. On either side of the natural gas fireplace there are french doors that lead out to a large deck.

Multi-Level Decks

If you enjoy the outdoors, this home delivers with a multi-level deck, large lush lawn and bonus – there is a stream that runs at the bottom edge of the property. You can see that the decks are composite decking which is fantastic because of the hassle-free maintenance. Save your weekends for fun, not sealing a deck. The owners did consider putting a pool in and had a local company come and estimate it and make sure it would work on their lot. If you want to make this backyard even more of an oasis, there is plenty of room to add your own sparkling, refreshing pool. May I suggest this one? Or maybe this one?

Mahogany Renaissance Conservatory

Want to enjoy the outdoors and get some sunshine even when the temperatures aren’t favorable to sitting on the back decks? Then come inside to the mahogany and glass conservatory built by Renaissance Conservatories to relax, read, entertain or whatever you wish! The current owners loved to watch the deer come right up to the house from this room.

Expansive Kitchen

The kitchen is adjacent to the conservatory. The owners chose granite for the counter tops as well as the flooring because it is one of the hardest, sturdiest building materials you can buy. The cabinetry is all cherry with an accent white split rope molding at the top. The glass cabinetry between the cooking area and the breakfast dining area feature glass doors so you can display your best china, crystal, silver or decorative serveware.

Handsome Wood Paneled Den

If you work from home, you could make this handsome, wood paneled den your office. I envision the future owner of this residence decking this room out with supple, overstuffed leather couches, animal skin rugs, classic literature on the bookshelves and a crystal decanter of brandy next to a humidor filled with the finest cigars. Adding some sconces could really give this room a fantastic broody, warm, captain of industry type vibe.

Finished Lower Level

Once finished with your day, retreat to the finished basement – again with gleaming granite floors throughout – to play billiards or enjoy a cold beverage. The wet bar has built in wine racks for up to 55 bottles of your favorite vino. There are three under cabinet racks to store your stemware.

Media Room

The media room adjacent to the bar area in the basement is the perfect place for a Netflix binge. The far wall has a recessed area to place your television and components. To achieve a movie-house-like feel, the owners installed ambient lighting to avoid a reflection on a TV’s screen and prevent shadows on a projection screen a hanging fixture would create. The crown molding in the room conceals the soft uplighting that provides just enough light so that guests can move easily and safely in a darkened space and access those all-valuable theater concessions, but not so much that they’ll be distracted from the big screen entertainment.

Dual Master Bedrooms

Tuckered out yet from all of the fabulous ways you can utilize this home? At the end of a long tiring day, retreat to your master suite – or rather suites, plural. In this stylish, trend setting abode, you have the choice of master suites. One suite is on the first floor and one is on the 2nd. Both are similar to the other in terms of room size, closet size and the en suite baths. The second floor suite has a gas fireplace to add to the coziness of the room. Each suite has a private balcony perfect for getting some fresh air first thing in the morning. Recent trends in home construction suggest that couples sleeping in separate rooms may be a more common phenomenon than we think. With more and more new home construction featuring two master bedrooms, common sleeping quarters may become a thing of the past. If you and your spouse have diverse sleeping habits, two master bedrooms could be the best solution to maintaining a happy marriage!

Three Car Garage

You need to keep your toys somewhere – whether it’s a luxury sports vehicle, motor cycles or a small boat – you can store them in the spacious three car garage.
