1647 Avain, Kuna

by

The kitchen is the heart of this 8-year-old home and an angled work island/breakfast bar is its focal point. The work space is centered in an L-shaped great room, where the living room is placed at the front of the home and a large casual dining nook runs along the rear wall. The great room is painted in a two-tone color scheme of khaki and pumpkin. Vaulted ceilings make the entire space feel open.

Above the three-car garage is a bonus room that feels completely disconnected from the rest of the house, making it the perfect hideaway space for privacy-seeking teenagers. Two bedrooms and the master suite are situated along a hidden hallway discretely located adjacent to the dining area.

The first bedroom is painted pink and has views of the side yard lawn, while the second bedroom bears a cappuccino hue. A tidy bed of tall, shady sea grass rustles in the Kuna breeze just outside the room's south-facing window.

The master suite is painted dusty rose and deep lavender. Sliding glass doors open to the covered back patio, where fragrant jasmine grows up the porch cover columns. The back patio is a private nook where two weeping willows filter views of neighboring homes.

Pros: Clean, family friendly home in attractive starter neighborhood.

Cons: Interior color scheme may not appeal to some, but that's an easy fix.

Open House: Sunday, Feb. 16, 1-3 p.m.
