Kimberley Development invites you to tour this 4,000 plus square-foot walkout ranch. As you enter the home take notice of the frosted track doors, which offer privacy and seclusion to a home office. The kitchen, dining and great room offer an open concept, while still maintaining their own distinct and defining characteristics.

From the hardwood floors, to the basket woven stone back splash and the quartz used throughout, this home provides the most usable space for family as well as entertaining. The quality wood craftsmanship is truly impressive with the many built-in shelves, wood columns, full extension, soft-close, beadboard cabinets, and the built-in dining banquette. Relax at the end of the day in the luxurious master suite. Complete with a tray ceiling, soaking tub, walk-in shower, and an abundance of custom closet space; this is the perfect place to unwind.

Right off the master suite are the laundry room and mudroom with individual cubbies. A second bedroom is also located on the main with a three-quarter bathroom off of it. Space is no issue in this lower level walk-out making it an ideal space to gather with friends and family around the second fireplace. The full wet bar features a wine storage room complete with a wine fridge.

A third spacious bedroom is also located in the lower level along with a three-quarter bathroom. For added convenience, the Wellington, is equipped with central vac and irrigation for the extensive landscaped lawn.

Kimberley attention to detail, quality of materials & construction, and responsiveness to customer concerns is excellent

Building with Kimberley Development was a great experience from start to finish. We had an outstanding building supervisor (Dave Schlachter) who worked with us every step of the way. The Kimberley attention to detail, quality of materials & construction, and responsiveness to customer concerns is excellent. We recently moved into our villa and couldn’t be happier with it. We definitely recommend Kimberley Development for a great building experience!
