The Courtyard Villa is a welcoming home with country like inspiration. While the exterior of the courtyard villa is traditional its interior is anything but. The soaring two-story inspirations will excite visitors. Upon entering this home, a massive water feature adorned by vertical glass tiles, welcomes guests.
The kitchen area is situated in the center of the home and is a theater style view to the back of the home so residents can take advantage of beautiful views of the Ohio River. The cooking area is inspirational with a perfect work triangle to help the home chef create fabulous dishes. From the vantage point of the home chef, exciting details of the home abound.
The guestroom is situated on the first floor as you enter the home on the right side. This arched hallway’s ceiling is accented with mica chucks.
The master suite’s bed is situated to take advantage of the unique views of the Ohio River. The master bath’s double art vessel sinks are complemented by waterfall plumbing fixtures. The center of the master bath’s showstopper is this massive glass-block tile shower complete with body jets and shower wand.
Another Guestroom is featured on the left side of the home and features shades of gray which complement the entire home’s color palette.
A receiving room is situated on the left side of the home’s entrance and serves as a second accent point from the Courtyard Drive. A bonus room above the garage is purposed as a home gym but can be used for storage, home office or a spare bedroom. Looking down from the spiral staircase you can see the unique open and useful area that is the great room. The second-floor balcony is situated to enjoy both views of the Ohio river and of the open great room space. The China red wet bar serves those enjoying the loft space and second floor deck, making it easy to grab a cocktail and relax on the back deck without missing the riverboats going by.
