Ever watched Fixer Upper and marveled at a Chip and Joana Gaines masterpiece? You’re not the only one. We have good news: No need to relocate to Waco, Texas to get in on the action—this brand new modern Justin Doyle Homes farmhouse in Mason is the next best thing. Sprawling more than 5,000 square feet, the ranch was featured as a model in Homearama 2019, and the attention to detail here is impressive. The home’s exterior features barn-like cedar beams and white board-and-batten siding, which complement the front yard’s meticulously groomed landscaping.
Inside, the kitchen, living, and dining spaces flow into each other to mimic a luxury New York City hotel. The living room features wooden ceiling beams, a white brick fireplace, and enough shelves for a healthy book collection. The glamorous chef’s kitchen features high-end appliances, designer countertops, open shelving, and a large island. It also includes an amenity we never knew we needed: a hidden pantry. Disguised as a cabinet, the door opens to a corridor of shelving, perfect for an avid organizer. Off the kitchen, the dining area overlooks a patio and covered deck, which are visible through floor-to-ceiling glass doors.
Entertaining space continues downstairs in arguably the best part of the home. Here you’ll find a bar that seats five, plus a separate wet bar, a floor-to-ceiling wine rack built into the wall, open space for a game room, and a movie theater area. The lower level also features an exercise area and two bedrooms with a conjoined bathroom.
Each of the home’s five bedrooms are larger than average (three of which are located on the first level), and one even features a swinging bed. Still, the master suite provides the ultimate retreat, with a master bath that’s nearly as big as the bedroom itself. It features a walk-in shower, freestanding tub, and a floating bench, plus the prettiest tile and hardware details. Also attached to the master bedroom is a large walk-in-closet, which is conveniently connected to the laundry room that spills into the mudroom and garage.
Part of the perks of living in this home is the surrounding community that’s included. It’s located in Kensington, a park-like subdivision with all sorts of green space and things to do like strolling down community walking paths, cozying up next to outdoor fireplaces, and splashing around in the English-inspired bath house and pool.
