Located at 22 Avalon Meadows in East Amherst, Natale Builders, a luxury custom and patio home builder, has opened a new model for touring.
The two-story, single family home, based on The Greenbriar model, is 2,600 square feet and one of Natale’s most popular styles.
While the model is the base design, Natale notes it has never built two models exactly the same way, leaving flexibility and customization to the customer.
Done with a handsome stone and shingle exterior, the entrance through a sheltered front porch brings guests into a bright and airy home built with plenty windows.
Natale uses Andersen 200 Series Energy Star windows. In fact, the builder prides itself on green and efficient standards.
Homes are well insulated to prevent thermal bridging that lowers heating/cooling cost. Not only do the structures create a comfortable indoor environment, they protecting the natural environment as well. A whole house air exchanger system conditions the air coming into and leaving the home removing excess moisture and dust. The basement features 9 foot Superior Walls.
The entire first level of the home is done with a unique and luxurious two-tone hickory hardwood floor. To the left of the entry is the formal dining room done with beautiful 48-inch wainscoting giving it a dramatic, yet classic look.
On the right is an equally stunning den/home office with built in bookcases.
Continuing into the home, the stunning fireplace is the focus of the living room, done in a gray slate tile. Transom windows that look out over a wooded backyard provide architectural interest as well as letting in lots of natural light.
In this open floorplan, the living room opens to a dinette area and beautiful kitchen done with white cabinets and Jenn-Air stainless steel appliances. Dark granite is the perfect compliment to the white cabinets and unique flooring. Three extra large bay windows also look out on the backyard.
The family entrance through the garage leads to a mudroom, laundry room and large closet near the kitchen. Loading and unloading of groceries, kids and pets is much easier (and cleaner) here.
The master bedroom with its glamour bath, dual sinks and huge walk in shower is located on the first floor. The bath offers plenty of storage in dark cabinets and there are granite countertops.
The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet done with California Closets.
At the top of the stairs leading to the second level is a great sitting area that could be used as a secondary family gathering space. Or it could be an place for the family computer. Two more bedrooms and a full bath are on the second level, with an option for a fourth bedroom over the two-car garage space.
The home is priced at $519,900, and is available for viewing Saturdays and Sundays 1 to 4 p.m., or by appointment by calling (716) 580-3318. Only 8 lots remain in the 75 home subdivision. Visit NataleBuilders.com for more information.
