When choosing a Hot Property, I’m often enticed by over-the-top extras, like sparkling pools, tennis courts, or in-home movie theaters. Call it aspirational. This week, we go back to basics. Today’s Hot Property doesn’t have lavish details, but it doesn’t need them–this four-bedroom build is beautiful on its own.
6856 Southridge Drive is nestled in the heart of Lakewood. Its exterior feels like a modern take on a Craftsman; the red brick façade is offset by cream and black detailing. Landscaping is understated and tidy, and the front porch is an ideal space to recline on a rocking chair.
Once inside, a midcentury-inspired dining room greets you on your left, illuminated by a pendant chandelier and a wall of windows. Across the hall is a study, its walls painted a crisp navy blue to offset a white built-in desk.
Next, take in the open floor plan. The living and dining areas flow effortlessly into the heart of the home: the kitchen. It’s stunning, with charcoal gray cabinetry, gold pulls, a marble waterfall island, and a fun patterned backsplash.
Upstairs, you’ll find an additional, less formal living area that would be perfect for game nights. The nearby master suite boasts vaulted ceilings and wood flooring, and the two other second-floor bedrooms are kid-friendly thanks to carpeting and a jack-and-jill bathroom.
The lush green backyard may not have a pool, but it offers plenty of space to play or entertain. The outdoor living area is well-equipped for warm summer days and cool winter nights alike, with a covered patio, a beverage fridge, a fireplace, an overhead fan.
In short, with 3,787 square feet of living space on 0.2 acres of land, this Hot Property has everything you need, and nothing you don’t.
