Custom Home for Sale in River Story

River Story is a community of luxury homes in Mandarin, Florida. This beautiful area full of woodland is where Glenn Layton Homes was building estate homes 20 years ago and now the outstanding coastal home builder has returned to offer new buyers a chance at a custom home for sale in River Story. One such home that is already available is located at 14225 River Story Drive.

This 4021-square-foot home design, called The Plantation, features four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, as well as a three-car side-entry garage. This two-story home is located in a privately gated community off Mandarin Road, and is built on an acre lot with a lake view. Like all Glenn Layton-built homes, it has been constructed using superior products, new systems, quality control procedures, and third-party inspections to ensure everything is done to the highest level.

The home itself is testament to the coastal living design ethos that is a part of every Glenn Layton custom home for sale in River Story. The front of the home features an inviting covered front porch that is ideal for rocking chairs and ice-cold drinks. Inside, you have a spacious layout that flows beautifully, providing a sense of order and openness. The large living area opens onto the back porch, while also connecting easily to the expansive gourmet kitchen with Thermador appliance package. The kitchen also features a large pantry, kitchen island, and even a breakfast area looking out onto the backyard as well as having access to the back porch.

An increasing number of homeowners appreciate the convenience of having the owner’s suite on the ground floor and this home offers just such a layout. The convenience of this floor plan doesn’t limit the size of the suite. This home features a spacious bedroom with an equally large bathroom with double vanities, a separate shower and tub, a linen closet, and two walk-in closets. In addition, there is another bedroom with attached bath on the opposite side of the first floor of the house, ideal for use as a guest suite.

Upstairs, there are two more spacious bedrooms with attached bathrooms, along with a loft area that offers multiple uses, such as home office, kids’ play area, game room, or hobby space. The flexibility of the home’s design is one of its many attractive features.

Throughout the home, you’ll find high volume ceilings, cased openings for room transitions, large profile baseboards, detailed window trim, stain-resistant carpeting with upgraded pad, and pre-finished wood in the foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen and transition areas, among others. The exterior of the home includes a finished garage, paver driveways and walks, custom brickwork, 40-year fiberglass architectural shingles, lap and shake siding, and a professionally designed landscape package, along with much more.

If you’re looking for a custom home that represents the historical architecture of the region, while also featuring the most modern of materials and important design approaches, contact Glenn Layton Homes today to view this home or develop your own exceptional coastal dream home.
