The luxury, evident throughout the main floor, is heightened in the 600-square-foot owner’s suite. A 10-foot step ceiling, expansive bay window, separate walk-in closets and wide-plank wood flooring grace the bedroom while a 12-foot walk-through shower with dual shower heads, custom tile, a 6-foot peninsula soaking tub, an elegant chandelier and separate granite vanities complete the owner’s bath. 

A flex room or home office, laundry room, powder bath and formal dining room complement the first floor. The home’s four secondary bedrooms are upstairs along with an open loft and two full baths.  The Castille III in Palencia is priced at $474,900.
