With 30+ years of expert home building craftsmanship to his credit, Washam knows home construction from the inside out. A trusted expert within the home building arena in the metro area, Washam has consistently taken top honors in both the Spring and Fall Parade of Homes, most notably for Distinctive Design. He does this by employing creativity and ingenuity at every turn, never settling for the status quo, constantly updating his plans.
Translation? He is continuously spinning the wheels of creativity, as evidenced in two uniquely-crafted homes in his portfolio.
Located in The Greens of Chapel Creek in Shawnee, the Adriana is a 2,840 square foot reverse floor plan. Situated on a golf course and featuring four bedrooms and three bathrooms (one of which is a Jack and Jill plan), the well-designed and crafted features give this home award-winning style.
“It has a very coastal vibe,” expressed Lindsay Cutler, Director of Sales.
With a crisp white palette as its anchor color and white oak hardwood as the predominant floor choice, this home offers many options and amenities that provide an open, airy and fresh environment. From its many trim options to the use of perfectly-appointed color accents, the Adrian has everything the discriminating homeowner desires plus all they didn’t know they wanted. Detailed and inspiring trim work is part of Washam Homes signature style and is incorporated at many turns within this plan.
“We love to do trim work and work with an amazing trim carpenter,” said Cutler.
Quartz countertops abound throughout, accented by cabinets painted in a bluish-gray tone. This is perfect for the client who likes the color gray but would appreciate a twist for a new presence.
“You can still have that general color but can lighten it up a bit for a more airy feeling,” said Cutler.
The master suite is truly the show stopper of this home and is a space Washam Homes believes should not be slighted. The accent ceiling in the master bedroom is a detail feature that can be enjoyed as is or stained. The luxurious master bath is truly a place in which one can unwind and feel right at home. Strategically-placed windows invite the perfect amount of natural light to enhance the overall relaxed mood, complemented by the white and soft gray color theme.
The kitchen features a vaulted ceiling with shiplap detail. The marble backsplash by the range offers the right amount of movement against the sleek quartz countertops. Ample cabinet space abounds and the expansive walk-in pantry keeps all the goods well-organized and within easy reach.
The artistic elements found throughout the home include an accent feature on the wall leading downstairs. Instead of an art piece, this adds character without risking aging style. The enclosed screened-in composite deck with 10-foot slider leading from the great room creates additional living space, perfect for entertaining or just enjoying mild weather. The mudroom features built-in doggie water and food bowls, while a cozy pet nook is located under the basement stairs, evidencing Washam Homes attention to the unexpected little things.
Another outstanding home design offered by Washam Homes is the Archer, located in the Lee’s Summit subdivision, Whispering Woods. This story-and-a-half shares a similar layout to the Adriana, but the two additional bedrooms are located upstairs instead of downstairs. With four bedrooms and four bathrooms in total, there is plenty of room for the family to enjoy. An 18’ x 18’; upstairs loft is the perfect place to create a media room, playroom, home office or school room for the kids.
The master suite is conveniently located on the main level, as is a second private bedroom and bath, which would make a great office, nursery or mother-in-law suite.
“This house lends so many options, including a full basement, giving you lots of opportunity to grow in the house,” expressed Cutler.
Expressing a style and personality all its own, the Archer plays with a variety of colors and materials, providing a somewhat moody and intriguing vibe. The darker accents provide an artistic contrast to the lighter features, such as the white oak flooring, range hood in the kitchen and ceiling beams in the dining area.
“This house brings in lots of natural and organic elements and bright, saturated colors,” noted Cutler. Other engaging features include Moroccan tile in the master bathroom, a covered patio with a fire pit, a reading nook in the loft area, and a balance of bronze, copper, stone and stain accents.
“We try really hard to stay on trends and put unique style in our homes,” she expressed.
Cutler also indicated a new “Capri” model is coming to WaterCrest Landing in Lenexa, featuring a more sleek, traditional style.
