Discover the Magic of the Mattern Family's Harrisburg D Home

Home Tour

Welcome to another episode of Tilson Home Tours, as we step into Vicki and John Mattern’s Harrisburg D home nestled in the serene landscapes of Leon County

As you approach the Mattern's home, you first notice the inviting porch adorned with stately columns. Dubbed "The Gathering Place," this space holds a special place in Vicki and John's hearts. With a view of the picturesque landscape and a front-row seat to the local wildlife parade, it's clear why this spot is their favorite. The columns add a touch of elegance, while the comfortable seating invites guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy the surroundings. 

Stepping inside, we're greeted by the heart of the home—the kitchen. Bathed in natural light pouring through expansive windows, this space is ideal for cooking and entertaining. It's equipped with ample counter space and modern appliances. But the little details—the custom cabinetry, the stylish backsplash, the cozy breakfast nook—truly make this kitchen special. 

With its stepped ceiling, the living room offers a relaxing sanctuary with stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The natural light that floods the room creates a warm and inviting atmosphere, making it the perfect place to unwind after a long day.

Moving on to the utility, bathroom, and bedrooms, Vicki and John share how they customized the space to suit their lifestyle. From transforming the utility room into a mudroom for outdoor adventurers to creating themed bedrooms for their daughters, every decision was made with practicality and personality in mind.

As you walk into the master suite, its abundant natural light, spacious layout, and indulgent amenities offer a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The master bathroom is equally impressive, with its modern fixtures, spacious shower, and elegant design. 

It's clear that this Harrisburg D home is more than just a house—it reflects Vicki and John's dreams, passions, and values. Every aspect of this home, from its inviting porch to its cozy corners, is filled with warmth, elegance, and a sense of belonging.
