2012 Colorado Springs Parade of Homes
Entering the outdoor living and entertaining space of the The Rhapsody you feel the grandeur of the exterior with stone columns and covered porch.
This dream home has a large formal dining room that gives way to a spacious great room. The great room is a wonderful plan for hosting a large party or intimate family gatherings and the large windows allow for full enjoyment of the Colorado sunshine. Exiting the great room is a subtle transition into any cooks dream, a state of the art gourmet kitchen featuring KitchenAid Stainless Steel Appliances.
This main level also features a Master getaway with a luxurious master bathroom and large closet with excellent organization. This home also features a wonderful private study or bedroom on the main level.
The wrought iron stairway cascades you to the expansive basement equipped with a large rec room with a full bar, space for a pool table, and a state of the art theatre. The basement also has three very spacious bedrooms and two large bathrooms great for everyday living or guests.
This Tuscan Dream is adorned with large trim, hand textured walls, beautiful faux finishes, and murals. This is the home you see when you close your eyes and dream. View the entire gallery.
The Tuscan flair of the exterior moves inward with the choice of warm soothing colors for the interior as well as stone and brick accents. The warm earth tones are complemented by the harmony of multiple textures. It is as though you have entered a dream in a luxurious functional villa.
The arrangement and choice of furniture make that dream an everyday reality. Award winning designer, Linda Shamburg of LS Designs, has fashioned a truly breath taking moment as you experience life in this home. Linda has incorporated exquisite tastes and functionality into this Parade Home.
