No matter which of the multiple exterior elevations you choose, the Laurel is an elegant home with fantastic curb appeal and even more appeal inside. Of course, that’s what you come to expect when you choose a home designed by Grayhawk Homes, a trusted home builder in Auburn AL.

This two story home has four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 2900 square feet. It also features zoned HVAC for better control and savings, as well as gas heat. Available in multiple communities, this home meets all of the basic needs and then some. As many people have realized over the past year,  there’s a need for flexibility in a home’s design, allowing rooms to be used in ways besides their traditional roles. That’s why we’ve designed the Laurel to include a flex room, as well as a media room, along with the separate dining room, and open-plan family room and kitchen. This home gives you the best of both worlds with open-plan airiness, enhanced even further by a spacious entry foyer open to the second floor, along with the option of separate, closed-off spaces for when you need peace and privacy.

The spacious ground floor welcomes you with the open foyer that connects to the dining room on one side and the flex room on the other. The flex room is fantastic for its versatility, especially for those needing a home office. It’s location right by the front door even makes it easier for clients or coworkers to stop by without having to truly enter the home, giving the rest of the family their privacy. Furthermore, by being set in the front of the home the way it is, it can be closed off to any noise and distractions of daily life inside the main living area. Of course, you could always use this room as an additional bedroom, a hobby room, or whatever fits your lifestyle. On top of this flex room, the Laurel also includes a spacious den in the back of the house, which could also serve as a home office, or be a comfortable den, filled with books, or whatever appeals to you, giving family members a quiet place to get away. Once again, the Laurel is a flexible, adaptive floor design that gives you a wealth of options.

The fact that this home has a separate dining room, along with an open breakfast area between the kitchen and spacious family room, offers plenty of options for dining. You can use the breakfast area for more casual meals or for casual entertainment, while the separate dining room is great for family dinners, holiday meals, and more formal entertaining.

Plus, there’s the spacious L-shaped kitchen with a dine-in island, gas cooktop, wall oven/wall microwave, and a spacious pantry. The downstairs also includes a coat closet, half-bath, and access to the large back covered patio. Throughout the downstairs, you’ll find wood floors and wood stairs before you reach the upper level, which is carpeted.

The upper level is where the bedrooms are and once again the Laurel doesn’t disappoint with the space and arrangement. Along with three good-sized bedrooms, there’s an owner’s suite with a separate sitting room, tray ceiling, dual-sink vanity, separate shower and tub, and a walk-in closet. The upstairs level also includes the laundry room for convenience, plus the fantastic bonus of a media room, which provides even more flexibility, comfort and fun. Use this bonus space in a way that best fits your family’s lifestyle.

The Laurel truly is a fantastic home design that meets a wide variety of needs and tastes. Plus, when you work with Grayhawk Homes, a leading home builder in Auburn AL, you can have the home built with your tastes and needs in mind, ensuring you end up with a home that fits you from day one.
