The home at 7556 Tilton Court is located in the Township of Old Goodwood, an upscale one-street development off Lobdell Avenue within walking distance of Towne Center and Whole Foods. The home has more than 3,200 square feet of luxurious living area and a stunning gunite pool and spa out back.

“This amazing three-year-old home sits behind a private walled courtyard with an outdoor kitchen and covered outdoor living area overlooking the pool,” said Ann Mullins, the Latter & Blum agent marketing the property.

Entry to the home is through massive arched doors that open into an interior courtyard with an outdoor kitchen and the pool. This unique pool is beautiful, combining different layers at different depths. One layer is a shallow sun deck with stepping pads to get from one side to the other. The square spa is deeper, adjacent to the swimming pool, which has three water features pouring from a brick wall. A covered outdoor kitchen and outdoor living room are along one side of the pool courtyard.

Stepping inside the home, guests will notice gray-washed pine flooring below 11-foot ceilings and a wide open floor plan, Mullins said. “There are three separate bedroom areas,” she said, “two downstairs with two and one-half baths, plus two more upstairs.” There’s also a lounge area upstairs, she added.

The formal dining room has a chandelier, wood floors and natural lighting through a pair of tall windows. A breakfast area across from the kitchen also has a chandelier and is gifted with lots of natural light filtering through four tall windows.

The living room has wood flooring and a fireplace flanked by a pair of tall windows that overlook the pool courtyard. In an interesting twist, the wall opposite the fireplace wall is coffered, creating lots of possibilities for artwork.

The kitchen has high end appliances, marble countertops and a butler’s pantry. A long marble island has a prep sink across from a professional gas cooktop below a custom hood. Double rows of cabinetry – some of it with glass fronts – stretches up to the 11-foot ceiling. Dual wall ovens are next to a microwave.

The home’s master suite has a chandelier in a tray ceiling, more wood floors and a large master bath. This elegant bath has dual vanities and a frameless glass corner shower next to a slipper tub in a coffered cove. The guest suite is downstairs, and the third and fourth bedrooms are upstairs, serviced by a Hollywood bath.

But perhaps one of the best things about this home is its location, Mullins said. “You can walk to Towne Center or Whole Foods or many high-end restaurants plus shopping and boutiques,” she said.

Finally, the home has an electric privacy gate and a two-car garage. And when the power goes out, things keep running with a whole-house generator, Mullins said.
