Cypress Homes recently finished construction on a completely custom, riverfront home in the Rivers Edge subdivision in Kimberly, Wisconsin. This gorgeous home sits atop a lot that slopes down to the Fox River. The homeowners had complete control of this home including everything from the floor plan to the finishes.
Waterfront home on a walk-out lot
The front of this home features cultured stone, square-tapered porch columns supporting the arched front porch, board and batten siding, and beautiful windows. In addition, there are grills in the top sash of the windows, and distinct shutters surrounding the 2nd story windows. Even without the waterfront, this home is sure to capture your attention with its impressive curb appeal.
Not visible from the road is a Trex deck overlooking the Fox River. The lot happened to have some mature trees that Cypress was able to keep intact throughout the construction process.
1st Floor of the Custom 1.5 Story Floor Plan
No detail was overlooked on the first floor of this custom plan. It includes a mudroom, a powder room, a custom catch-all, an office, and a beautiful foyer. All of these spaces are Instagram worthy, but the rest of the first floor is even more impressive: You have to see the meticulous master suite, the impressive kitchen & dining area, and the breathtaking two story great room!
With a riverfront lot, it just makes sense to capture those beautiful views from the master bedroom windows. This bedroom also features a cathedral ceiling with custom wood beams. However, the master suite goes well beyond the bedroom. The homeowners worked with our designer to customize a beautiful walk-in closet that includes a swing-out mirror, slide-out hanging rods, built-in baskets, tie and belt organizers, and all the other essentials like plenty of drawers, shelves and hanging space!
The master bathroom features a huge his and her sinks with a countertop linen cabinet. There's also a private water closet and a beautiful tiled shower. Lastly, the bonus linen cabinet provides even more storage.
Custom Kitchen & Dining
There is a beautiful open-concept layout between the kitchen, dining room, and great room, however, each space is defined with the same beams from the master bedroom. The large kitchen could be a blog post of its own; it includes a huge island, an induction cooktop, a built in wall oven and convection microwave, and a stainless steel hood. The custom cabinet panels cover the refrigerator and freezer. These cabinets also stack up to the 9ft ceiling with in-cabinet lighting to further compliment the under-cabinet lighting. The kitchen space is completed with granite countertops and a tile backsplash.
Behind the stained 15-lite pantry door, you'll find adjustable shelves, rollouts, drawers, and section of countertop that wraps around the corner.
The dining area sits closest to the water and showcases huge windows and also includes an 8 ft patio door that brings you out to the Trex deck.
2 Story Great Room
The 2 story great room has a 19 ft wall full of windows overlooking the Fox River. This view can be admired through most of the home including the staircase and 2nd floor loft, thanks to the open-concept layout. The floor-to-ceiling fireplace features a stone surround with a beam style mantle and shiplap above (all the way up to the 19 ft ceilings)! This great room also showcases custom built-in shelves on either side of the fireplace with two symmetrical picture windows.
Other First floor features
We can't move to the 2nd story without first mentioning some of the other impressive features on the first floor. This home includes an office off the front foyer with 15-lite french doors. There is also a hallway connecting the garage and foyer with access to the mudroom, catch-all, and powder room. The laundry room is located off the hallway to the master suite for easy access to the homeowners.
upstairs bedroom and loft area
Rather than drafting a standard layout, the homeowners decided on a more customized design with 2 large bedrooms and an open loft to overlook the great room. Each of the bedrooms come equipped with a walk-in closet and private 1/2 bath area. Connecting these half baths is a shower room that can be accessed (and closed off) from either bedroom.
Walk Out Lower Level
Even the lower level of this beautiful custom home looks to impress. A large rec room, with bar area, gives another space to enjoy to the waterfront views.
Lastly, there is a full lower level bathroom, another lower level room, and plenty of unfinished space for storage or more future space.
