Mirrors, mirrors on the wall, what’s the fairest home of all?

More:

Why, this showy new construction Dutch Colonial twin just three short blocks from Ardmore Regional Rail station.

The builder of Cricket Springs Crossing, the 19-unit twin/townhouse development of which this home is a part, has put loads of photogenic style into this home that plays very nicely with its traditional neighbors.

That old-fashioned small-town exterior encases a home that’s as modern as tomorrow. Take a look at the pictures below and see if you can’t see yourself in it.

You will certainly be able to see yourself in the arrays of mirrors that line both the entrance stairwell and the main floor dining room. These will also put your guests in a flattering light.

Ever fantasized about hosting your own TV cooking show? Just stick a video camera in the living room and shoot away, for the kitchen is designed to make this simple. It’s fully open to the living room, with an island with bar seating for a studio audience of six. All of its appliances, including a six-burner gas cooktop, are arrayed against the far wall, giving you your stage set.

The living room behind the camera is classy too. It boasts a wood-burning fireplace, built-in cabinets, display shelves, a big-screen TV mount and a built-in desk.

Upstairs, the owner’s bedroom suite includes a bath that not only has dual vanities but also a dual shower with rain heads, body sprays and a single frameless glass enclosure. One of the other two bedrooms has a sitting room and space to match the owner’s bedroom as well as an en-suite bath.

The rec room downstairs contains a fully equipped wet bar and a grotto-like pub seating area framed in stone. Its windows look out on the wraparound front porch.

If you’d rather not have all those mirrors, don’t worry; what you see here is the furnished model home. You can specify the decor and finishes when you sit down with the builder and agent to buy your home, which is under construction now.
