The Bovee family's home is in Riverwood Plantation off Washington Road in Columbia County.

She and her husband, Michael, have always longed for the traditional red-brick home, she said. The house features 6,200 square feet, ample space to accommodate a couple of energetic boys – Max, 7, and Luke, 3. A finished basement attracts her boys, said the young mother.

Bovee said she’s thrilled with her home in the family-oriented Riverwood Plantation. “It’s a great community with good schools, a new supermarket, swimming pool, and I especially enjoy the running track,” she said.

Bovee also noted the open layout of the house, high ceilings, hardwood pine floors and a blended kitchen and den. The home has six bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms.

“Even though it’s a large home, it still has an incredibly warm feel to it,” Bovee said.
