The Derby II is an ideal home for those looking for more traditional homes in Columbus GA. The layout of this spacious, two-story home offers the kinds of features that people are starting to return to when it comes to home layouts. Yet it also has the conveniences and quality of a newly built home by Grayhawk Homes, so you can feel confident in having a home that will meet your needs for years to come.

The Derby II has four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 2,172 square feet. It has classic curb appeal, starting with the inviting covered front porch area, ideal for some rocking chairs or other outdoor furniture that lets you wave to neighbors and get to know people a little better.

Inside, there’s a welcoming foyer hallway. This space provides some privacy for the rest of the first floor. However, off to one side of the foyer is a separate dining room. Many homes don’t feature separate dining rooms anymore, but a growing number of homebuyers are starting to miss the option and appreciate having somewhere more formal and spacious to host friendly dinners or family holiday feasts. Of course, if you’re not in need of a dining room, you can always use the space as a home office, a study, a library or whatever suits your personal lifestyle.

The foyer hallway takes you into the rest of the home, which is open plan for convenience. First, there’s an entry from the garage and a powder room just off to one side and a coat closet on the other side. From there you move into the spacious living room, complete with a cozy fireplace. The living room takes up a good portion of the first floor, giving your family plenty of space to spread out and feel comfortable. Next to the living room is the large kitchen, which also has a breakfast area that has sliding glass doors that lead out to the back patio. This breakfast area is ideal for more casual family meals or as a convenient place for homework. The kitchen has a wealth of cabinets and counters to cook up a fantastic meal and there’s a dedicated pantry, as well as a connection to the dining room, ideal for easy service.

The stairs to the second floor are in a corner of the living room, out of the way. Upstairs, you’ll find the four bedrooms, including the owner’s suite. The central hallway upstairs has a skylight overhead for added light as the bedrooms all radiate from this central area. The owner’s suite is incredibly spacious and has a spa-like bathroom and large walk-in closet. The three additional bedrooms are approximately the same size and there’s a full bathroom, as well as a nicely sized laundry room. Having the laundry room upstairs is surprisingly convenient and makes it easier to collect and distribute clothes without multiple trips up and down stairs.

The Derby II floor plan is a thoughtfully planned traditional home, but with the space and storage that people want in a new home. Plus, you have your choice of elevations, allowing you to find the exterior that fits your personal style and still put your own touch on the home.
