A wine lover’s dream home – Highland’s Plan 540 model in Elyson

This is part of a series of profiles of 12 new model homes now open in Elyson’s new Model Home Village. Click here to see more model home profiles. 

A wine storage room with sliding barn doors and a wine bar in the family room are just two of the features that make Highland’s new Plan 540 model home in Elyson perfect for entertaining. Open indoor and outdoor living areas add to the social appeal of this one-story plan.

Showcasing Highland plans priced from the $400Ks in Elyson, this model home offers eight structural options that invite families to customize it for the way they live, including adding a “Flex Gen” living suite and a second floor with a gameroom.

An extended foyer with double front doors welcomes you to this beautiful model, filled with bold textures, colors and wall treatments.

Right off the foyer, the wine room includes a wall of diagonal bin racks, with additional cabinet and countertop space, a bar sink and wine refrigerator.

A second wine-friendly feature is located in the open family room and kitchen area. Complete with counter space and upper and lower cabinets, this built-in also makes a convenient butler’s pantry.

The fireplace is one of our favorite design features, with a floor-to-ceiling wall of brick with bold horizontal patterning, painted in a dark brown color.

While many homes locate the study near the front door, Plan 540 offers a different approach, with the home office at the rear of the home. A wall of built-in bookshelves lends style and storage to this private workspace, enclosed by single-pane French doors and offering a view of the backyard.

The open kitchen enhances this plan’s entertaining potential, with a large table island providing seating for four. An arched niche above the cooktop creates a stylish focal point for the kitchen. Additional creative touches include glass-front cabinets and subway tile set at a diagonal.
