Situated in the lovely North Dalton Cottonwoods, along the 15th fairway of the Dalton Ranch Golf Course, this new-to-be-lived-in, 3,678 SF home has lovely finishes with numerous windows allowing for beautiful views and optimal light. With dramatic vaulted ceilings, the home highlights a welcoming and open floor plan with central living area and a cozy fireplace. In addition to a gourmet kitchen, four separate bedrooms and 3 baths, a powder room, and 3+-car garage, the guest wing and the master suite, with its private office or exercise room are on separate sides, creating a beautiful floor plan for entertaining and hosting guests while still maintaining your personal privacy.
