at HOME on Caledonia Drive

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 8.26.42 AM

Clean lines and an open floor plan make a Bossier City home a must-see modern gem.

Located on Caledonia Drive in the Tiburon subdivision, it may look familiar to those who participated in the recent Parade of Homes.

The two-story stunner stands out with its white-painted brick exterior, gray shutters and eye-catching landscaping. Lagniappe Lawn & Landscape of Bossier City added additional curb appeal to the home with a multitude of flora in the flowerbeds. River birch trees are planted in the front flowerbed. The main bed next to the home is adorned with hand-selected plants including loquat trees, Indian hawthorn, cleyera, agapanthus, muhly and spiral grass, and foxtail ferns.

A galvanized metal roof tops the front entrance, along with a custom arched metal front door with beveled glass made by Allen Millwork of Shreveport.

Built by Tanner Construction, the spacious 3,215-square-foot home has five bedrooms, three and a half baths, and boasts the latest in modern style and amenities, including imaginative uses of materials. “I travel to find new ideas and trends to bring back to the area,” said builder Tammy Herring.

The wall color throughout the home is classic gray. Naturally aged wood flooring was placed in the common areas, while the bathrooms are tiled and the bedrooms carpeted. The wood flooring, counters and tile came from The Granite Studio in Bossier City.

A formal dining room lies to the left of the foyer. A striking, custom-floating “X” above draws the eye upward toward the cathedral ceiling. Herring said she goes to market to find the perfect lighting for her homes. A chrome light fixture from Currey and Company illuminates the space.

A modern fireplace with a White Sands marble surround takes center stage in the living room. White builtins flank each side. A slender chrome light from Currey and Company hangs beneath a coffered ceiling. The furnishings, art and accessories chosen by Herring were supplied and staged by Nader’s Gallery for the Parade of Homes. Light floods into the space through a wall of windows overlooking the backyard.

Herring’s keen eye for detail is evident throughout the home – from electrical outlets placed in the baseboards for a cleaner look, to pulldown wardrobe lifts in the master closet for upper storage areas.

Brick columns and an antique pine beam from Custom-Bilt Cabinet & Supply of Shreveport mark the separation of the living area from the kitchen.

The kitchen cabinets by Builders Custom Cabinets of Bossier City measure 11 feet and are painted Sherwin Williams silver plate. The illuminated glass-front upper cabinets tilt open horizontally. A louvered custom vent hood rests above the stove. The counters and island are topped with the same gleaming White Sands marble found in the fireplace surround, and the backsplash is Soci marble in a geometric knot pattern trimmed with a metal schluter to give it a finer line. The island has a waterfall edge on one end, while the opposite side has marble floating shelves. A farmhouse sink is set in the island, along with a dishwasher and microwave. A dream for home chefs, the kitchen also has double ovens – the French door-top oven can be opened with one hand and completes the room’s sophisticated design. The appliances are stainless steel GE Café.

Over in the wet bar, industrial-style wood floating shelves trimmed in stainless steel are suspended from the ceiling with cables. The custom cabinets have 2-inch vertical cuts in the doors. The kitchen backsplash is repeated in this area with a granite Macaubas countertop.

The 12-foot ceiling in the master bedroom is topped with a custom treatment – a circle with an “X” radiating from it. A Currey and Company recycled mica glass chandelier hangs in the room, and sunlight pours in through bank of widows. A custom barn door leads to the en suite bath. It is crafted out of horizontally laid MDF shiplap with a shimmery faux finish.

The sleek master bath has “his” and “hers” sides separated by a walk-in closet. The spacious stand-up shower is tiled with Soci marble and has a linear drain on the floor. The shower also has chrome fixtures, niches for décor, and a floating bench.

Scissor-pattern sconces are mounted on the mirrors above White Sands marble-topped floating vanities, and the faucets come out of the mirrors as well. The white, mirrored cabinetry reflects light from windows above the 6-foot freestanding tub. The tub filler is mounted to the floor and has a hand-held shower. Another recycled mica glass chandelier hangs in the shiny space. All of the home’s toilets are touch-free. The home’s American Standard DXV plumbing fixtures were supplied by Coburn’s in Shreveport.

The closet features a built-in with mirrors and interior drawers. Valet rods are mounted on each side of the builtin. Pull-down wardrobe lifts make the upper reaches of the space accessible for hanging clothes. A large pegboard may be used to hang personal accessories such as scarves, purses and belts. All of these storage options streamline the amount of furnishings needed. “You can have less furniture in your bedroom and really make it just your bed and a couple pieces that stand out,” said Herring.

Two smaller downstairs bedrooms share a kid-friendly Jack and Jill bath. One side of the bathroom features a hexagon marble floor and a knot design on the cabinet fronts. The vanity on the other side has sleek inset cabinet doors. The two sides have granite countertops, floating vanities, geometric industrial glass light fixtures and Uttermost mirrors in common. The shared tub/shower has a subway tile surround with 3D accent tile and glass floating shelves. The bedrooms’ wow-factor features the custom double-X ceiling with aged shiplap in one room that looks like a barn door, while the other bedroom has white, modern barn doors – one with mirror accents.

The downstairs half-bath has white MDF shiplap walls, a baroque-pattern Soci marble floor and a brass light fixture. Coburn’s supplied the brasstrimmed antique farm sink. The bathroom has a second door that accesses the back patio so it can potentially be used as a pool bath in the future.

Out back, the oversized patio is a great place to gather with family and friends. The space contains living and dining areas. The outdoor kitchen has a sitdown bar and leathered White Thunder countertops and stainless cabinets. The mantel above the fireplace is another piece of antique pine from Custom-Bilt. The ceiling is dark-stained shiplap.

Back inside the home, the laundry room has a custom drying cabinet vented with a wire door. The countertop is the same White Thunder granite found in the outdoor kitchen and a Soci marble backsplash. The rectangular floor tile is laid in a basket weave pattern.

Currey and Company metal tortoise wall sconces brighten the stairway to the second floor. Another bedroom has an en suite bath with custom navy cabinetry, a marble countertop and floor tile that looks like aged wood. The tub/ shower surround is a wavy-gray subway tile with a sparkling bubble accent. An office/media room is also located upstairs.
