This idyllic Country house design features a symmetrical approach to pastoral living with a center front covered porch framed by columned beams, open railing and an overhead gable. The combination of siding and cedar shakes provides a beautiful blend of character and charm giving the home an attractive exterior façade. A balanced interior floor plan features centrally located main living spaces while the split bedroom plan offers privacy and convenient family spaces. There are approximately 2,261 square feet of living space in the home consisting of four bedrooms and two plus baths. The home’s drawings come complete with a slab, crawl space and basement foundations; thereby, creating additional value and versatility to the home with a basement expansion. Entrance into the home is through the front foyer with soaring ceiling heights which provide views stretching to the home’s rear covered porch. On the way, there is a formal dining room with an 11’ boxed ceiling where hosting special family events and occasions would be enjoyable and effortless. The great room is a large space with 10’ ceilings, built-in cabinetry and a handsome fireplace flanked by picturesque window views. There is a rear covered grilling porch and adjoining patio which is accessible from the great room providing outstanding entertaining and family relaxing space. The gourmet kitchen is highlighted with a center island breakfast/snack bar, a separate pantry and loads of counter and cabinet space. The adjacent breakfast room is nestled into a triple bay window which fills the space with sunlight. A powder room for guests and large interior laundry room are conveniently located off the two car side entry garage.
The split bedroom plan features a rear positioned master retreat for privacy consisting of a large master bedroom with a boxed ceiling and private access to the rear porch. A relaxing whirlpool tub with window views takes center stage in the elegantly designed master bath along with dual vanities, a separate shower and a compartmentalized toilet. Two master walk-in closets are situated on either side of the master bath for convenience. The second bedroom is designed for use as either a sleeping area or study and contains a spacious closet and exits to the back hallway containing additional bedrooms. Bedroom three is spacious while the fourth bedroom is clearly oversized; both contain plentiful closet space and there is a shared hall bath with dual vanities and a linen closet. A 367 square foot bonus is situated on the second level; this would make an excellent multi-purpose family room, home office or fifth bedroom as there is a full private bath, generous closet space and additional storage room. This is a great family home with a welcoming exterior façade and an interior floor plan with plenty of space for a large family, not to mention, the possibility of expansion on the lower level.
