Large shady oak trees with moss swaying gently on the coastal breezes add to the southern charm of River Story, a quiet but exclusive community tucked away in Mandarin. More than 20 years ago, Glenn Layton Homes constructed some of the early, stunning estate-size homes in this riverside community and now they are returning to offer new buyers a chance to purchase an exceptional custom home for sale in River Story. With their new virtual tour of one of the homes, it’s hard not to want to purchase one of these stunning homes immediately.
The coastal plantation-style home located at 14225 River Story Drive is a move-in-ready two-story home that combines traditional style with modern comfort and conveniences. The home features four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, with a spacious owner’s suite and guest suite on the first floor and two large bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs, along with a loft area that can be used for a variety of purposes. The owner’s suite includes custom his-and-her walk-in closets, and a spa-like bathroom with a large soaking tub and a separate glass-wall shower with multiple shower heads, including an overhead rain showerhead.
The main floor of the home is spacious and airy with an open concept that moves easily from room to room. Dark wood floors, tall windows, and elements of rustic brick add additional character to the classic design. The gourmet dine-in kitchen includes a breakfast bar, island, Thermador appliance package, beautifully constructed double-stack cabinets, as well as a walk-in butler’s pantry. The kitchen flows easily into the dining and living areas. Off of the guest suite is also a study, and a separate door leads to the three-car garage. A built-in drop zone with bench and shelving is located by the garage for added storage and convenience. The ground floor is finished off with a laundry room that includes a sink and countertops.
This custom home for sale in River Story also offers plenty of options for indoor/outdoor living, with a covered front porch just made for rocking chairs, as well as a covered back patio and a separate patio off the owner’s suite. Large glass doors across the back of the home encourage coastal breezes and a relaxed way of living. Thoughtful landscaping finishes off the exterior of this attractive home.
Once you take a virtual walk through this outstanding home, you’ll soon understand the appeal of the homes Glenn Layton has been building in this peaceful, historic community.
