Custom details in the living room

Living in nearby St. Peters, Ashley and Trey Dorman had always been fond of the Cottleville area; so when they were ready to move, they decided to build a new home there. They chose a quiet court development by Lombardo Homes and closed on their new house in December 2016.

“We wanted more space and a different style, a flat yard and an open plan,” Ashley says. “With Lombardo, they let us customize everything.”

The four-bedroom, three-and-a half-bath house is the perfect layout for their busy family of four with a main-level suite, and second-floor bedrooms separated by a jack-and-jill bathroom for their two daughters, Kinley and Gia. The open concept offers a spacious living room with soaring two-story ceilings and a wall of windows overlooking the swimming pool, as well as a chef’s kitchen with a huge center island and an everyday dining area.

A formal dining room with a striking recessed ceiling sits off the entry foyer across from a private home office separated by sliding barn doors. The foyer features a criss-cross patterned floor of hardwood with inlaid tile, creating an instant impression.

Beautiful details like scraped hardwood floors, ceiling-high stone over the fireplace, built-in lighted bookshelves and an ornate arched double front door are on display throughout the main floor. The Dormans added a few of their own special touches as well, including working with a neighbor who lays tile to create a striking backsplash above the range and surrounding the refrigerator in the kitchen.
