Livable Luxury at Ashby Manor

Wieland Builders 21st Homearama home, Ashby Manor, has wowed Greater Cincinnati’s 2018 show attendees in no small part due to its interior design plan of livable luxury.

Working closely with Wieland’s in-house selection coordinator, Robyn Howser, the team of Jill Koch and Julia Bender of Designs on Madison choose items to complement Ashby Manor’s natural style. This is Designs on Madison’s sixth year with Wieland Builders, and has won an award every year they’ve worked together, including several peoples choice awards for favorite home.

Ashby Manor’s overall layout is very similar to a floor plan you would see in the South, from its wrap-around front porch complete with a fireplace to its expansive great room’s focal-point, a gorgeous stone wall.

Heart of Ashby Manor

Exposed Wood Beams are Just One of the Features in this Room

Ashby Manor’s great room is a complete show-stopper featuring cathedral ceilings with exposed wood beams, a limestone fireplace, and a beautiful stone wall. Designed for Homearama in a neutral color palette with bright pops of color, the great room’s stone wall has a custom sound-solution by Phantom Sound and Theater that delivers state-of-the-art quality without distracting from the stone’s natural beauty.

The kitchen has a large island with a butcher-block top, built-in pantry and a wood-paneled refrigerator to stay in the Southern-style theme and blend with the home’s design. The breakfast nook is incorporated into the open floor plan but works also well as its own space. The formal dining room features aqua grass-cloth walls and charming French doors that lead to the wraparound porch.

Master Suite

An arched opening along the great room’s stone wall leads to the master suite, which features cathedral ceilings, a gorgeous chandelier, exposed beams and two walk-in closets. The walls are finished with a light, grass-beige cloth that completes the feel of this serene retreat. The master bathroom’s tile complements the stone in Ashby Manor, and features marble inlay and a crystal chandelier.

Upstairs and Lower Level

The lower level of Ashby Manor is a great space to relax or enjoy entertaining family and friends. In addition to two bedrooms on this level, there is also a media room, bar, exercise room and a full bath – not to mention plenty of room for storage.

Upstairs there are two spacious suites with a recreation room. The space was designed for Homearama with a growing family in mind. Currently, the suites are designed as a girl’s and a boy’s bedroom with the recreation area serving as a game room. The recreation room features built-in shelves that would also lend itself to being an ideal homework spot, quiet space or an additional media room.

We hope you enjoyed our 2018 Homearama home, Ashby Manor, which is available at $1,271,000 for occupancy beginning in August 2018. This beautiful 5-bedroom, 5,000+ square foot home is located on a 1.47-acre wooded site on the cul-de-sac.
