Two homes featuring cathedral ceilings — a California-style ranch in Southington and a hidden-away property located off a cul-de-sac — are on the market. Both houses have recently had their list prices cut by at least $20,000. An open house is scheduled for each of the properties this Sunday at 2 p.m.
The ranch located at 394 N. Star Dr. in Southington features 4,075 square-feet of living space, including four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The open floor plan allows for a spacious layout with seamless transition between the dining room, kitchen, living room and family room. Almost all rooms feature cathedral ceilings and skylights giving the spaces an airy quality. The bedrooms continue this trend with sloping ceilings and broad windows. The master bedroom highlights the house’s natural surroundings with a full wall of windows overlooking the three acres of woodlands the property is situated on. The house features floor-to-ceiling fireplaces, elegant tiled-flooring in the kitchen and three full bathrooms and bright hardwood flooring in the living spaces. A front porch and back deck allow for space to relax and enjoy the optimal views outside.

The Cheshire property located in the Strathmore Wood Real Estate cul-de-sac features a cozy family room, well-lit through skylights and cathedral ceilings.

With three bedrooms and four bathrooms spread between 2,918 square-feet and a three-car garage, the property offers plenty of living and storage space.
