With more and more homeowners searching for the best of both worlds—that is, the best of the city and the suburbs—Lebanon’s new Union Village has emerged as a not-so-typical alternative to your classic subdivision. Principles like walkability, sustainability, and mixed housing are all at the core of the community, which is already in walking distance to restaurants and a central building that features mailboxes, a bank, office space, and its very own restaurant.
This newly built farmhouse, Union Village’s first completed property, is packed full of amenities. The home spans nearly 4,000 square feet with five bedrooms, four and a half baths, and a detached garage with a second-story apartment above that adds even more space to the home. The meticulously landscaped front and side yards offer sweeping views of the neighborhood. Did we mention the place comes with its own front-yard fountain?
The all-white exterior with working black shutters, a charming baby blue front door, and wraparound porch make this build a modern farmhouse dream come true. Inside, you’re immediately greeted by a spacious living room that features wall-to-wall built-ins, hardwood floors, and coffered ceilings.
In the kitchen, white shaker cabinets and marble countertops brighten up the dark floors while the eat-in island offers ample seating and prep space. The subway tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances keep things modern, but it’s the bold lantern pendant lights over the island that steal the show.
The first-floor owner’s suite takes its design cues from the living room with a dramatic coffered ceiling, massive windows, and gorgeous board-and-batten paneling across the accent wall. In the luxe owner’s bath, a light-filled shower stall dominates the room and divides the vanities for a little extra privacy in the mornings.
Upstairs, you’ll find two additional bedrooms, a pocket office, and a loft space with plenty of room for hosting movie night. The basement has a bedroom of its own, too, plus a second entertainment space that features a wet bar. And the party doesn’t stop there. Tucked between the main house and the garage, there’s an open-air-patio-slash-courtyard space perfect for entertaining.
But perhaps the greatest perk is above the three-car garage, where there’s a full one-bedroom apartment that features its own full kitchen, living space, bedroom, and bathroom. Use it as a guest space, in-law suite, or even a studio. In this suburban oasis, the opportunities are practically endless.
