Aspiring homeowners can find high quality craftsmanship with a new home by Dahl Custom Homes in a quiet neighborhood, complemented by a convenient location.
The three-bedroom, two bath home at 1033 Emerald Court in Marion, just off a cul-de-sac in a new development, features nearly 1,700 square feet of finished space with an extra-large back yard.
Situated in the Linn-Mar School District, the home’s location near Highway 100 offers quick access to shopping and other amenities, with a country ambiance. Stacked stone and a smoky gray color palette on the exterior provide a welcoming entrance with plenty of curb appeal.
Dahl Custom Homes offers more than 10 years of construction experience; skills that are evident in all of their custom homes, along with a 1-year builder warranty for extra peace of mind.
Walking in the front door, an eye-catching, “Sputnik” chandelier sets the tone for the attention to detail throughout the home on Emerald Court. The floor-to-ceiling fireplace of cultured stone serves as a stunning focal point in the living room, complemented by hickory floors in gray tones.
That color palette echoes throughout the main floor, including the kitchen, which features gray-spectrum granite counter tops with plenty of counter space and birch cabinets in light linen, contrasted by dark flagstone color tones.
A pot-filler faucet above the stove offers a modern amenity for filling tea kettles, stock pots and more with such convenience that you might wonder how you ever lived without one.
Continuing the rustic theme, a sliding barn door that opens to a spacious walk-in pantry is among other highlights in the well-appointed kitchen. Stainless steel appliances, a unique tile backsplash and dovetail soft close cabinetry add to the kitchen, as well.
The rustic feel also carries into the living room, which features exposed wooden beams on the 14-foot- high ceilings, along with solid wood trim and craftsman-style doors. The popular open-floor plan provides extensive space for entertaining and family living.
Near the entrance, a lighted art niche offers a spotlight for a favorite painting, sculpture, vase or other work of art, while a drop zone and laundry room offer convenience with custom built-ins.
Many of the standard features in Dahl Custom Homes are considered upgrades to other builders, including central vac systems and upgraded electrical and plumbing. The Emerald Court home is wired for a security system, as well.
The layout of the home situates two bedrooms with a full bath on the same side as the master suite. A spacious walk-in closet, tray ceiling and large windows to let in plenty of natural light are featured in the master bedroom, while a custom tile shower with two shower heads and popular free-standing soaker tub – perfect for a relaxing retreat to melt away stress – are high points in the tranquil master bath.
A stunning wood and wrought iron staircase railing leads past a wall of windows into the basement. As yet unfinished, the lower level has space for a rec room, full bath, two bedrooms and a wet bar.
Outside, an extra-large patio offers a perfect spot for grilling or other get-togethers, while an upper deck overlooks the spacious yard, with plenty of room for outdoor play sets and more.
Dahl Custom Homes offers an average construction time from the day ground is broken to finish in just three to four months, allowing homeowners to enjoy their new home as soon as possible.
At the same time, quality stays at the forefront, with every home built to last.
Dahl Custom Homes believes your home is your refuge from the stress of the outside world, so it should be everything you have always wanted. When it comes to building your dream home, the only limit should be your imagination.
