Located at 7314 Paddock Ridge in the Bear Ridge Estates in Pendleton, the two-story “Hemmingway” features four bedroom and 2.5 bathrooms.
With more than 2,850 square feet of living space, this traditional home is ideal for entertaining or relaxing with the family. Set on a half-acre lot, the home highlights a stone front façade, two-car garage and a columned front porch.
Inside, the two-story foyer features hardwood flooring that is carried into most of the main level. A wide archway opens to the den on the left, and the formal dining room is to the right in this center-entrance layout.
The dining room includes wainscoting with decorative boxes, crown moulding and hardwood flooring. The butler’s pantry connects with the L-shaped kitchen.
Nine-foot high walls are complemented by tall six-panel doors on the rest of the main level. The open floor plan continues down a wide hallway to the rear of the home. Plenty of windows add natural light to the bright interior.
The staircase to the second level has been offset and is more central to the house; a balcony overlooks the foyer.
The kitchen shows stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, some glass-front cabinets and a snack bar island that will seat four people. The adjoining dinette is enlarged by a walk-in bay window.
The great room includes a heat-rated fireplace and three large windows on the rear wall.
The family entrance from the garage shows a walk-in pantry, seasonal closet and bench with cubbies and hooks — a year-round convenience. A powder room is at the end of the hallway.
Upstairs, the owners’ suite is to the left and rear of the second level for great privacy. An octagonal tray ceiling is shown in the sleeping area.
The spa-like master bathroom includes a soaking tub, separate shower, dual sink mirrored vanity with vanity table and granite countertops. A walk-in closet and compartmented toilet area complete the suite.
