1st Floor / Lower Rec Room
2nd Floor , Owners Level with Deluxe Shower
Here is a quick tour of the Darby II model at The Oaks in Huber Heights:
The first floor, (3rd level) View of the Great Room standing at the front door.
The mud room, with built in (included in the base price!!! how exciting is that!)
This model has the dining room option, we will be leaving it as a flex room. So the opening leading to the kitchen will be closed off. We are going to make it a study for the kids to do their homework. Finally their backpacks and paperwork will have a home.
View from the dining room into the foyer. The arches are an additional cost. It adds to the character of the home. The arches mimic the arches in the windows of the great room.
The fabulous great room. The size and all the windows are included. The only additional cost is the fireplace.
View from the back of the great room looking toward the foyer and the loft above.
View toward the stairway
Looking into the kitchen from the great room.
View from the breakfast nook looking toward the front of the house. Our fridge will be where the doorway to the dining room is currently. And the cabinetry will take the place of where the fridge is now. The ceilings are at 9', an additional cost. But if we raise them to 9' they get raised everywhere, including the garage, which my boyfriend absolutely loves. We are replacing the microwave and cabinetry over the range with a canopy range hood.
View from the kitchen into the great room and breakfast nook.
(2nd level) The stairs leading down into the finished rec room, 1 level down from the main floor. This is included in the base pricing. The door leads to the basement, another level down (1st level). We are finishing it off for the kids play room. Inverness has several finished basement options to choose from. We went with the "upgrade A" package of finishing 1/2 the basement and leaving the other 1/2 unfinished to use for gym equipment.
We will be using this rec room as our dual home office.
The only issue about this floor plan is the location of the powder room. Our guests will have to go down a level to use the bathroom.
The stairway outside of the Owners Suite. View from the 4th level looking up to the 5th level.
View from the french doors looking into the Owners Suite. The tray ceiling was an additional cost
View looking at the double french doors, one leading into the stairwell, the other leading into the bath. You only get the double doors when choosing the deluxe shower option.
This model has the optional deluxe shower, instead of the bath and shower that comes in the base plan.
The deluxe shower
The walk-in closet. We are already looking at what closet organizers will work best for us. These wire racks are just not going to cut it.
View from the 2nd floor (5th level) down the stairs.
The laundry, located on the 5th level next to the loft. Far enough away from both the owners suite (one level down) and the kids rooms which are located on the opposite side of the loft.
The loft area, our designated "kids area" for their television and toys.
View from the loft down into the great room.
The 1st bedroom, located at the front of the house.
The 2nd bedroom, located at the back of the house.
The bathroom that lies in between the two bedrooms. We added a dual vanity so the kids don't have to share a sink.
