Loft room adds extra space to 2-story



Family room, kitchen, breakfast room create open area

Contributing Writer

A loft bonus room is a surprise space to this two-story home located within The Reserve subdivision of Miamisburg.

Listed for $329,900 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the brick-and-vinyl house at 2292 Appleblossom Drive has about 2,890 square feet of living space, including the loft plus a full, unfinished basement. The house sits on a large irregular lot that includes a storage barn. There is an oversized, two-car garage and a rear wooden deck.

Recent updates have been made, including the roof in 2010, entrance door, water heater in 2016 and upstairs carpeting this year.

Formal entry opens into a two-story foyer with a spindled-accented open staircase that leads to the balcony hallway. Wood-laminate flooring fills the foyer and continues into the kitchen and breakfast room located off the foyer hallway.

Doubled doors to the left of the foyer open into an office, and the combined formal areas are off to the right of the foyer. The living room has a bay window, and both rooms have classic crown molding.

Access to a half bathroom and the basement staircase is off the foyer.

Separated only by flooring treatment, the kitchen, breakfast room and family room are one open space. A vaulted ceiling is above the family room and peaks at the upstairs loft, which is accented by a spindled railing. At the center of the family room is a gas fireplace with a detailed wood mantel and marble surround.

Patio doors open from the breakfast room to the rear deck. A planning desk and access to the laundry are off the opposite side of the breakfast room. Oak cabinetry fills the kitchen and an angled island has a bi-level counter, allowing for breakfast bar seating and workspace. A double sink is below corner windows, and the kitchen comes equipped with dishwasher, a range which was new in 2014, a microwave and refrigerator.

Updated neutral carpeting covers the stairs and continues down the hallway and into the four upstairs bedrooms. The main bedroom is at the end of the hallway and has a walk-in closet and private bathroom. The bath features a double-sink vanity, a corner soaking tub and a walk-in shower with glass doors.

The other three bedrooms have sliding door closets, and the guest bath features a tub/shower and single-sink vanity.

Off the other end of the hallway, two steps lead down to the loft bonus room. The room is spacious enough to be a recreation room or upstairs family room as there is a side window and in-floor outlets. Wood spindles accent the cutout that looks down into the main-level family room.
