For some buyers, a luxury home must be an estate surrounded by acres of land with woods and meadows for privacy. For others, the ultimate luxury home is a penthouse condominium with a city view, a fireplace and perhaps a balcony.

But what some luxury home buyers appreciate most is owning a home having an architecturally pleasing design that replicates the ideals of the past yet provides modern amenities to meet the highest standards.

Arlington Property Ventures LLC designed the home at 1721 N. Taylor St. in Arlington’s Willet Heights neighborhood to blend seamlessly into the community.

The home features Craftsman-style architecture, with a deep front porch with Brazilian hardwood flooring, professional landscaping, stone columns and a cedar shake and Hardiplank exterior. Inside, the home has about 5,100 finished square feet on three levels.

Now on the market for $1,795,000, this home includes hardwood flooring on the first and second levels and 9-foot ceilings on all three levels. The main level has a foyer flanked by the formal living room and formal dining room. The living room has windows facing the front porch and the side yard. The dining room has columns flanking the entrance to the room, a box bay window on the side of the house and windows facing the front porch.

A butler’s pantry links the dining room with the center-island kitchen, which opens onto a family room and adjacent breakfast area. The kitchen has solid wood cabinets, granite counters, double Bosch dishwashers, a 48-inch Wolf gas range, a built-in GE Monogram microwave and a GE Monogram refrigerator.

The family room features a stone gas fireplace and French doors to a rear patio. The adjacent breakfast area has windows on two sides and a door to a walk-in closet. This level also has a powder room, a coat closet, a laundry room and a mudroom with additional closet space. A door next to the mudroom leads to a second patio. The detached two-car garage is across the patio from the house.

Upstairs, the spectacular master suite includes a separate sitting room wrapped in windows with French doors to a private balcony. The master suite has two walk-in closets and a luxury bath with an upgraded tub with bubble jets, windows on two sides, a large separate shower and a double-sink vanity.

The second and third bedrooms share a connecting bath with a double-sink vanity. The fourth bedroom has a private full bath.

The finished lower level includes a bedroom with an adjacent full bath. This level also has a generously sized recreation room with an adjacent storage room.

A coveted modern feature in the home is the prewired media or theater room. The home has a high-tech prewired sound system with a touch screen command panel and a 42-inch plasma screen television, receiver and surround-sound speakers inside and out.

The home also includes dual-zone gas and electric heat and air conditioning with a gas water heater.
