Design & Living took a tour through Legacy Custom Homes’ unique two-story model house that’s for sale located in a quiet West Fargo neighborhood. The house was completed in May 2016. Brian Tulibaski of Legacy chose the unique features carefully, from a 100-year-old reclaimed-wood ceiling to cottage style trim windows and door frames throughout the house.
It’s a restful and unique house with a country cottage feel. How the home was built dictated how Monica Hart of Monica Hart Interior Design staged the house.
The living room ceiling is an absolute showpiece. It was built with reclaimed wood from a 100-year-old barn from North Dakota.
“I put the sofa at an angle so the room seemed more open and cozy. I chose the white table (in the kitchen) so it felt light and surrounded it with fabric- slipcovered chairs for texture,” said Hart.
The floating shelves were also built from the same reclaimed wood that the ceiling in the living room was built from.
A his-and-hers wine rack is built into the granite island on either side. Another unique touch is how the granite island is carefully angled on the corners.
The master bath is made up with a powder station for the lady and a “his” sink for the man.
There is also a custom, pebble-tile shower with double shower fountains.
The cottage-style trim windows and door frame style is carried throughout the entire house.
One of the perks that this house offers is two laundry rooms, one on the main floor, and another on the upper level.
Double French doors open to a gorgeous office space lit with the perfect amount of natural light from the window. It would make a great office, a cozy study or even a small library.
SECOND FLOOR LIVING SPACE
Just as with the rest of the house, the second floor living space has wide, white poplar-trim baseboards.
The white wainscoting and the floating shelf above the toilet bring the cottage styling into the powder room.
The mirrors are wrapped in maple and painted with a white trim.
“When parents have young children, they want to be on the same floor as their kids. But as they age, they don’t want the stairs. Or they’d prefer a main floor master. This offers a little of both. Then they can transition to the lower floor if they’d like without changing homes,” Tulibaski said.
JACK & JILL
A nice soft light fills the Jack & Jill bathroom, making it great for families with boys and girls.
The lower level is incomplete at this moment, but this is the first house in North Dakota to have been built with a Premium Composite Wall, which is a new product that keeps out dampness, mold and more.
