Drive down the quiet street, walk through the wooden front doors, and you’ll find yourself right at home at 3548 Tanglecreek Circle, located in the heart of Vestavia Hills. This three-story home is the perfect haven for a family looking for space that will grow with them over the years. With five spacious bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths in nearly 4,500 square feet, this home offers all the features a family needs with the comfortable amenities and stylish touches that will elicit ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ from friends and visitors.
The classic brick home with large windows and beautiful architectural details is tucked into the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac off of Rocky Ridge Road in idyllic Tanglecreek, one of Vestavia’s most desired neighborhoods. With its beautiful brick homes, well manicured lawns and family-friendly atmosphere, this coveted location is convenient to Highway 280, as well as local shops and divine restaurants. As you drive down the street, you’ll be charmed by the friendly neighborhood zoned for Vestavia’s award-winning schools — the perfect spot for a growing family. “Vestavia is just a wonderful place to live,” says realtor Angela Stevens of the Gusty Gulas Group at Brik Realty, the home’s listing agent. “You have a very wonderful sense of community here. You really feel like you’re a part of something, and, of course, the school system is outstanding.”
The property itself overlooks a beautiful wooded area, and you can easily hear the babbling waters of Little Shades Creek from any vantage point in the yard. Enjoy sunny spring mornings on the large main-level deck, or warm up around a fire pit in the side yard in the fall.
As you walk through the front doors, you’re immediately greeted by an array of the home’s best features: beautiful hardwood floors that flow throughout, a bright, airy feel enhanced by large windows and tall ceilings and the family-friendly comfort that you’ve always wanted to come home to. A grand two-story foyer provides a beautiful introduction to the home, and the eye naturally falls toward the stately formal dining room to the right. This space is bathed in light from the large front-facing windows, and classic wainscoting, an elegant chandelier and wall scones give the room an air of elegance and refinement without feeling too grandiose for family dinners.
The dining room flows into the updated kitchen, with a convenient main-level laundry room tucked between. Updated granite countertops give a unified look to the kitchen, while bright, white cabinets and a contrasting espresso island provide dimension and visual interest. The large island features a gas range and elevated bar-top dining area opposite from additional cabinet space and a double wall-oven. The breakfast nook overlooks the deck and a large window over the sink gives the perfect vantage point to keep an eye on little ones playing in the yard as you prepare dinner.
Adjacent to the kitchen, the living room is introduced via a large, sweeping cased opening, providing an open concept feel that also provides enough separation to maintain the integrity of both spaces. Cozy up by the gas fireplace with a good book selected from the shelves of the gorgeous built-in cabinetry, or kick back and watch the big game from a comfy spot on the couch.
French doors open from the living room onto a stunning sunroom, where a pitched ceiling lends to the ethereal feel of the space and a wall of windows invites the beautiful outdoor scenery inside. This is the absolute perfect place to enjoy a peaceful moment sipping your morning coffee before the day begins. And if you’re working from home, you can step from this refreshing morning meditation to your bright, formal office on the main-level. Set up a desk and create the perfect home office, or simply fill the built-in shelving with books, add some comfy seating and you’ll have the library of your dreams.
The master suite, also conveniently located on the main floor, is truly a rejuvenating refuge where you can kick back, relax and enjoy an escape from the day-to-day. An elegant double-tray ceiling and wide windows give this room a spacious, serene feel. Walk through the French doors into your en suite bathroom and you can’t help but fall in love. Matching his-and-hers closets, separate vanities, a tiled walk-in shower, jetted tub and enclosed water closet check all of the design ideals off your dream list, while a sparkling chandelier, gleaming white tile, granite countertops and updated fixtures make this master suite a true must-have.
Upstairs you’ll find four spacious bedrooms, each outfitted with hardwood floors and generous closet space. Two of the bedrooms are connected by a traditional Jack-and-Jill bath, while a third bathroom serves the remaining two bedrooms.
The finished lower level of the home is comfortable and spacious, featuring a wet bar, full bathroom, recessed lighting and full sized windows. Here you’ll find great bonus space for a family, perfect for a playroom, game room, home gym or media room — the sky’s the limit! The home’s two-car garage with plenty of additional storage space is also accessible via the lower level.
This Vestavia Hills gem is an absolute dream home. “It’s a really pretty home with a lot to offer a growing family,” Angela says. “Tons of natural light, plenty of space and a neighborhood with a true community feel.” With its desirable location, beautiful amenities and ample space, 3548 Tanglecreek Circle is the perfect place to call home!
