Don’t let the formal luxury of the ground floor fool you - this home was designed with family in mind! Children of all ages will be right at home at 25 Sologne Circle – the entire second floor is designed to give everyone a spacious room and bathroom of their own, as well as a large den/gameroom.
While the upstairs level features the same attention to detail in materials and finishes found downstairs, it’s less formal and the scale is cozier and more intimate; all upstairs spaces feature 10’ ceilings and 8’ doors, and while the trim is scaled down in proportion to the lower ceiling height, it’s still generous. Bedrooms, closets, hallways, and the den have solid oak flooring, while bathrooms and the upstairs laundry room feature a variety of different natural stone floors. Two staircases with custom iron railings connect the upper and ground level floors. The grand spiral of the main staircase rises to an open landing overlooking the front entry hall’s soaring 25’ full height. One of the bedroom suites opens off of the open landing; turn right from the landing and a central hallway leads to four of the other suites. Turn left at the top of the stairs and you’ll enter the den/gameroom, with access to another of the bedrooms; continuing through the den leads to another smaller hallway, with access to the second staircase, the upstairs laundry room, the final bedroom suite, and a floored attic storage space.
Room for Everyone
There are seven bedrooms for your children and guests, each with its own uniquely appointed en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The five bedrooms facing the back of the property each have French doors for access to an uncovered porch with a cast-stone balustrade that runs the length of the second floor and offers great views of the golf course. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan and at least two generous windows for ample natural light; all bathrooms have windows as well.
The spacious den/gameroom with built-in entertainment center and snack bar is a great place for your kids to hang out and watch TV; there’s plenty of room left over for ping-pong or other game tables for other entertainment options. Large windows brighten the room and ceiling fans maintain comfort. Practicality wasn’t left out in the planning of this spectacular home – the second floor laundry area eliminates the hassle of dragging laundry up or down stairs, and the built-in refreshment center in the den keeps snacks close at hand, eliminating treks to the downstairs kitchen. And while upstairs it’s all about the kids, the second floor isn’t all the home has to offer your children. They’ll spend plenty of time in the family kitchen, dining and great room area, on the portico for family cookouts, playing in the pool, and shooting hoops in the garage forecourt. When they’re ready for a change of scenery, Chenal Country Club is just over a half mile away, within easy walking distance for older children. At the club your kids can swim, play tennis, golf, or just meet up with their friends. Both the club and the home have plenty to offer your family members, whatever their age.
