Review: Luxurious Living in Dexter

Aug 12, 2014

Dexter, Mo. – Outside of Southeast Missouri a common misconception is that the area is nothing but log homes, farm houses, and fields. There are many beautiful homes in every county of Southeast Missouri that would rival the most beautiful homes in a suburban area.

Take, for example, the home at 701 Shelton Drive in Dexter, Mo.

This stately 2.5 story home features Georgian architecture, an immaculately maintained lawn, and unique features such as an indoor atrium-style, sun-lit room located in the center of the home.

From the minute you walk up the tidy brick walk to the beautiful entrance with a towering palladium window above it, you know this is a home of the highest quality.

Constructed in 1991, it features four large bedrooms, each with its own partial bath. The master bedroom includes a spacious and well-organized dressing area as well as a luxurious full bath, including a whirlpool tub and separate shower area.

Black Marble Inlaid FloorKitchen View With Bay Windows Looking Out Over GardenThis home includes beautiful features which set it apart from other homes: an entrance with a stunning black marble floor with exotic wood inlays; a formal dining room and living room; a beautiful kitchen with a large bay window looking out to the wooded backyard; and a large study with attractive oak cabinetry and shelving perfect for a home office or a quiet library to enjoy a favorite book.

With over 4,000 square feet of interior space, and a washed rock driveway that leads to an attached two-car garage, this is the perfect home for a family that wants to incorporate a big-city classic style into their lives without that big-city suburban expense.

This home lists for $314,900. Call or email Sherri Holifield at Young Real Estate in Dexter for more information.
