Venturing out of the bustling city to the southeast edge of Sioux Falls is a curved path that leads to a majestic single-story home. Sitting at the top of a hill, this home offers breathtaking views of the rolling plains, trees, and winding creek. Built by Deffenbaugh Homes and designed by 4D Design + Consulting, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is 5,820 square feet of pure luxury.
Upon arriving, the eye is immediately drawn to the regal-looking turret, along with the 13-foot front door and tall windows. The stone exterior compliments the beige stucco. The circle paved driveway leads to a large, heated four-stall garage with plenty of room for a workspace and storage.
★★★★★“We met with several contractors and solicited many recommendations before selecting a builder for our new home. From the very first meeting it was apparent that Deffenbaugh Homes was in a class of their own. The Deffenbaugh team has a very rare combination of creativity and a structured organizational process that sets them apart from the rest. I couldn’t imagine building with anyone else.”
Moving from the garage to the home is a charming, yet grand entry way and mudroom, complete with plenty of storage. A round bench allows a place to perch for a minute and daydream as you look out the window.
Off the left from the garage is a
spacious and bright butler’s pantry.
This is the opening act for what’s
in store next - the kitchen. Open and airy, this space features white cabinets, quartz countertops, a large island and faux finish 10-foot ceilings paired with hardwood oak floors, which are throughout the main level of the home. The focal point though is the double-sided stone fireplace. This feature really warms up the space, inviting you to cozy up to the glowing embers.
Proceeding to the other side of the fireplace is the dining room. This quaint area is filled with natural light, thanks to the large windows and two sets of French doors. From the kitchen is a dreamy arch top cased opening that welcomes you into the great room, which features a 16-foot faux finished ceiling. Another fireplace graces us with its presence, complete with a granite surround and accompanying built ins. Glancing to the left are triple French doors leading to the back courtyard, pool, pool house, outdoor fireplace and fire pit. The outdoor space offers beautiful views, perfect for relaxation.
Retreating indoors, down a hallway of wainscoting is the exquisite owner’s bath, complete with an unbelievably large walk-in closet. The owner’s suite is just as divine with its own fireplace and French doors.
Upon entering the lower level is a maple topped bar, theater room, second kitchen, two full sized baths and two respectable bedrooms. The main act is of course the golf simulator. Another luxurious feature is a cedar-wrapped sauna off the workout space!
From the splendid grandeur of the exterior, to the delightful and modern interior, this home has it all. The brilliance of Deffenbaugh Homes and 4D Design + Consulting is apparent everywhere you look, all wrapped up in a perfect house-in- the-country feeling. It’s the perfect haven for anyone seeking an elegant environment, fit for royalty.
