Collaborating with the architecture firm, Brickmoon Design, Smith Family Homes is proud to present this resplendent 5,970 square foot home in Southgate.
The design team was cognizant of the positioning of the home and developed a site plan that incorporated architectural details such as the deep front porch to assist in creating a sense of privacy from passers-by.
The grand entry hall has custom ironwork and an intricate floor detail, a precursor for what is in store throughout this home. The powder bath just beyond the arched opening services guests for formal events.
The 17' x 12' study is located just off of the entry hall and provides a wall of built-in cabinetry on the north wall.
The study is afforded a tray ceiling with recessed LED lighting juxtaposed with a handsome Ralph Lauren Home light fixture.
The 19' x 17' dining room has 11 foot ceilings and views overlooking the private, 23' x 22' center courtyard.
The builder teamed up with Allie Wood Design Studio to create a residence that features refined finishes that is intertwined with a sense of casual living. Notice the custom design elements such as the subtle ceiling detail.
A view of the 25' x 24' living room has views of both the center courtyard and spacious backyard. Between the pair of French doors is the 42" dual-sided Twilight fireplace with black soapstone surround and Metallic Black Lava Calda tile by Ann Sacks.
Oversized metal clad Jeld Wen doors that open to the backyard and 11 foot ceilings help to create a voluminous effect. Worth pointing out is the thoughtful floorplan that has easily defined rooms that allow for both large and intimate gatherings.
The appliance package includes a multi-zone, glass front SubZero refrigerator, 48" Wolf range with matching hood and microwave as well as a Bosch dishwasher. The backsplash is a custom-ordered Rustic Greige Lava Calda tile by Ann Sacks.
Situated underneath the White Macaubas quartzite island are dual Osborne lanterns in polished nickel with surround counters that are Organic White Caesarstone. The vestibule to the left is where you will find the walk-in pantry and Butler's pantry.

Here is a view of the master bath with its barrel vaulted ceiling. Adorned with custom cabinetry and a grand-scaled mirror, the Opal White marble vanity is a remarkable feature found within this lavish bath.
The Adele four-tier chandelier in polished nickel sits center stage within the generously-sized master closet. With the elevated ceiling height, this closet has the ability to handle three rows of clothing, essentially adding 50% to its capacity.
The master bath measures 26' x 13' with a Victoria + Albert soaking tub placed in front of the large shower enclosure. Polished nickel fixtures and Restoration Hardware accessories marry well with the Lagos Azul & Gascogne Blue stonework.
Positioned above the foot of the bed is a Lesina chandelier in Brushed Silver Leaf. The 42" fireplace is inset into a custom-designed fireplace wall. Throughout the home is Benjamin Moore paint with Nimbus being the chosen hue for the master suite.

Situated on the south end of the home is a 19' x 16' secondary bedroom with dual verandas on either side. Its location, just off of the front stairwell, provides separation should one desire for this to be used for multi-generational families.

Pictured here is the fifth bedroom on the property. Many homes have four bedrooms with a flex room that was intended to be a game room but could be used as a bedroom. 2226 McClendon is a true five bedroom home that also has a separate game room.
Even the utility room is given the best of finishes. Custom built cabinetry with undercabinet lighting, hardware from Top Knobs, and Absolute Black honed granite counters are found within the amazing utilitarian space.
The 24' x 20' outdoor pavilion provides perfect sanctuary while enjoying the backyard of this 11,840 square foot lot. As witnessed here, the spacious rear lawn can easily accommodate an oversized pool. The 70" ceiling fan has Balsa wood blades.
