Luxury without leisure can be, well, no fun at all. Then you stumble across a custom transitional home like this newly constructed stately home in the lovely Charnwood Hills neighborhood of Troy with Bloomfield Schools.

This 6,031-square-foot colonial boasts six bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms.

What first draws you in is the blend of brick, stucco, limestone and metal roof accents. The two-story foyer displays a dramatic spiral staircase upon entrance; it’s designed with wrought iron spindles and hardwood stairs that lay on porcelain tile flooring, and it’s finished with millwork floor-to-ceiling details and a chandelier drop to add to the beauty.

There are entertaining spaces at the front of the home with a formal living room, extensive millwork, hardwood flooring and a charming chandelier. You’ll find the formal dining room to the left of the entrance; it has beautiful ceiling detail and a glamorous chandelier. A butler pantry/pub area connects to the kitchen nook area, making it perfect for entertaining.

The gourmet Eurocraft kitchen with high-end Thermador appliances makes this not only beautiful but efficient. The massive oversized island with seating has a thick mitered porcelain countertop, backsplash and covered hood. Meanwhile, the prep kitchen is equipped with a sink, dishwasher, stove hood, custom Eurocraft cabinetry, refrigerator and a wall of windows to allow natural light into the main kitchen. And don’t miss the custom-designed Eurocraft pantry with matching porcelain countertops and high-end shelving.

The family room features an eye-catching mantel and tile detail with Sapphire Luxury Homes’ signature diamond-coffered, 12-foot ceilings. Then you have the first-floor flex room designed to host out-of-town guests or even a hangout for the family. From the chandeliers to the sconces, the lighting choices in this home are jewels that give it the WOW factor.

Off the kitchen nook is an all-season sunroom with large windows, cozy fireplace and door leading to the covered lanai featuring an outdoor kitchen, phantom screens and ceiling heaters. The oversized mud room has covered lockers and custom benches built by Eurocraft.

On the second floor, you’ll love the grand entrance step-up to the primary ensuite. It features a spa-like bath, huge walk-in California Closet organizers, tiled backdrop for the bed with LED lighting, desk area, coffee and wine bar, plus a balcony that overlooks the resort-style backyard pool and landscaping design and install by Sapphire Landscaping.

Another primary bedroom has a large walk-in closet, full bath with tub and walk-in shower, not to mention millwork detail for the bedside. The other two bedrooms share a bath that is designed beautifully, with each room enjoying a private sink and cabinets for storage. All rooms have walk-in closets with California Closet organizers. The lower level is pre-finished with natural daylight windows and a doorwall that walks out to the oasis backyard design.

This is an exquisite offering from Sapphire, a luxury company specializing in craftmanship. Sapphire Realty locates the land and markets available listings, while Sapphire Design Studio creates and customizes a plan from scratch, based on the client’s needs and desires.

Each room is fully rendered to showcase the selections and how the home will look to help clients visualize the space. Sapphire Luxury Homes then builds the home and finishes the lower level, while Sapphire Landscaping designs and creates the outdoor living area. Other services such as interior and exterior design and furnishings provide a one-stop shop.

All in all, the details in this design are so precise and the craftsmanship so excellent that luxury is assured. Meanwhile, the leisure factor wasn’t overlooked, ensuring the homeowner will enjoy casual time with both friends and family.

It is, in fact, the best of both worlds.
