Oh boy! Every once in awhile you come across a gorgeous home that literally makes your jaw drop when you see it. That’s how I felt when I stumbled across this traditional stone house by Rufty Custom Built Homes in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Step inside and see the ceilings soar with gorgeous wood beams and large arched windows. The mostly neutral color scheme enjoys a touch of blue in the traditional living room. Sitting on the comfy couches affords a beautiful view of the woodsy outdoors.
The kitchen in today’s traditional stone house has a mix of wood and painted cabinets. The large range hood is especially impressive along with granite counter tops and a custom tile backsplash.
You’ll notice the application of arched doorways throughout the home, not to mention elegant trim work. The dining room has beautiful molding along with a gracious chandelier that I’m sure sparkles beautifully in the evening.
You don’t see grand pianos in homes too often these days. My sister had one in her house; she’s quite talented when tickling the ivories. I love that this traditional stone house includes a room just for the piano, along with a pair of elegant chairs for enjoying a private concert. Even the man in the portrait appears to enjoy the music.
Is there such a thing as an elegant laundry room? Yes there is – at least, this house has one! I love the coordination of colors in this space. The pale gray and yellow tiles and taupe walls perfectly match the colors in the window covering. It’s so lovely and the perfect place for doing laundry.
As if the interior spaces weren’t beautiful enough, this home enjoys elegant outdoor areas. A stone fireplace with an enclosed television resides in the enclosed back porch. The wood ceiling is so rich-looking with the two tones of wood stain and the furniture looks comfy and attractive.
On the other side of the enclosed porch is a beautiful dining set with outdoor grill and bar. Whoever lives in this home is extremely lucky and I think they should adopt me.
You’ll find more custom trim work in the master bedroom with its gorgeous wooden bed. French doors lead to a balcony overlooking the wooded property. What a pretty view to wake up to each morning!
The Raleigh home looks equally lovely from the outside at night.
