Located in Cathedral Point, one of Verona’s newest neighborhoods, this new construction (2019) Veridian home, has it all. The attractive exterior features tan no-maintenance vinyl siding accented with a black front door and shutters. The front porch is welcoming, with enough space for a couple of comfy chairs.
Inside the front entry, you’ll notice the open floorplan with a view of the open staircase, the kitchen, and the great room ahead. To the immediate right is a nice-sized bonus/flex room that could be used for a wide variety of things – a den or office, sitting room, playroom or even a music room.
A large double-door coat closet and powder room are conveniently located to the left. And you’ll love the rich dark walnut LVP flooring throughout this entire level.
Continuing straight ahead you’ll find yourself in the open concept kitchen/dining and great room area. The kitchen has granite countertops with room for 3-4 at the island breakfast bar. The cabinets with their “black coffee” stain perfectly complement the flooring. And the kitchen also features a French door fridge, an electric range, a wise single sink and a food pantry. The spacious dining area has a large window overlooking the backyard and a full-view glass door leading to the deck.
Out back, you’ll find a huge Rainbow Play System sure to please the kids — and dog-parents will be excited to learn that there’s already an invisible fence surrounding the house. The accompanying collar is included. Alongside the house, there’s an incline perfect for sledding or slip-n-sliding, depending on the season!
The kitchen also leads to a large mudroom/laundry room that opens to a spacious 2-car garage with a bump-out for large storage or work station. The mudroom has convenient hooks on the wall for coats, hats and backpacks. And there’s plenty of space here for added shelving or pet supplies. A handy pocket door to the kitchen can be closed if you’re entertaining guests — or want a quiet workspace while the washer is running!
The great room is adjacent to the kitchen — offering a great open concept layout that’s perfect for entertaining or just sharing family time together. There are 2 side transom windows on either side of a gas fireplace, set off by contemporary natural stone tile. A Smurf tube allows you to mount a TV above the fireplace or position it to the left. The room is bright and sunny with a large picture window facing the backyard and a flow that brings family and friends together.
Back toward the front of the house, a carpeted staircase leads to the 2nd floor with its 4 generous-sized bedrooms. The owner’s suite is highlighted with large corner windows. It also features an ensuite bathroom with tile floors, a walk-in shower, double sink with comfort-height countertops and a large walk-in closet.
The other 3 bedrooms are also good-sized — perfect for kids or guests. All are bright and cheerful with large windows and a generous sliding double-door closet. One of the bedrooms has a small bump-out area that could hold a small chair, shelves, toy chest, or office storage if you choose to make the room a computer room or office. A large pantry-style linen storage closet along this hallway provides convenient storage for linens, toiletries, toys, decorations and more.
The main hallway bathroom upstairs has an oversized tub/shower combination, a Formica counter and attractive basket-weave vinyl flooring. The cozy carpet runs throughout the upstairs except for the 2 bathrooms.
Back downstairs, a door between the kitchen and front entry opens to an unfinished lower level. This large space is already plumbed and ready to be finished. There’s a lower-level walkout with sliding double doors to the backyard. The large windows provide full-exposure so part of this level could be used as a 5th bedroom or office. The area also provides plenty of additional space for a family room, storage, or a workout area.
In addition to the invisible fence, the house has a radon mitigation system and nest doorbell system for your convenience and safety.
This classic colonial home is located in an attractive Veridian neighborhood featuring a mix of housing styles. It’s conveniently located close to everything Verona has to offer — from local businesses to restaurants, grocery stores, schools, sports fields and the Verona Public Library. Bikers and walkers will also love its location near the Ice Age Trail. And it’s just a short 15-minute drive to Madison’s southwest side. You’re sure to feel at home here at 331 Blackburn Way Drive.
