Situated along a quiet cul de sac in Chesterfield, this picture-perfect custom home rests on a pretty lot that backs to trees and boasts an inground pool, with a covered deck. Step inside the lovely brick-and-stone abode through a two-story entry that will immediately sweep you off your feet. As you glide across hardwood flooring, take in the framed tray ceiling of the spacious dining room or the built-ins of the handsome private study. You are likely to linger in the two-story great room, which offers a stunning setting, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a wet bar. The kitchen itself proves a treat, with custom cabinetry, granite countertops and a breakfast bar. Pass through and explore the attached breakfast room and expansive hearth room. Picture cooking up barbecue chicken out on the covered patio with your built-in grill, while admiring the view of waterfalls and fountains. Or simply opt to slumber luxuriously inside the main-floor master suite.

This 5-bedroom, 4 full-bathroom and 2 half-bathroom home in Chesterfield is listed for $1.395 million.
