This super attractive and highly functional Craftsman house design features a family-friendly layout. The exterior façade is highlighted with enormous curb appeal that incorporates board and batten gables, a shed dormer, exposed rafters and a front covered porch designed for greeting family and friends. The interior layout features approximately 2,004 square feet of usable living space with three bedrooms and two plus baths on the main level. The overhead bonus room supplies an additional 354 square feet of space; great as a multi-purpose family room, study or an artist’s studio. There are a full bath and closet as well so this extra space could also be utilized as a fourth bedroom. The two-car front loading garage is spacious with adjacent storage space and entry into the home’s interior.
Entering the home from the front porch, you are greeted with a spacious foyer that leads to the flanking home office and subsequent living room. The study is accessed through French doors and features double window views. The centrally located living room is nicely vaulted, open to the kitchen and provides triple window views and access to the rear porch. The rear porch is huge, measures in excess of 17’ x 14’, is covered and has an outdoor kitchen area; perfect for outdoor family fun and cook-outs. Bordering the porch is a large storage room that is ideal for lawn and sporting equipment. The grand kitchen is highlighted with a center island, breakfast bar, loads of cabinet and counter space and the walk-in pantry is situated between the kitchen and dining area. The dining room features 10’ ceiling heights and is sundrenched with double-sided window views overlooking the porch. Off the garage entrance, is a family functional space for maintaining a tidy home environment. There is a laundry room featuring a sink area, counter space and hanging space for clothing. The adjacent lockers and linen/storage closet provide space for the drop off of backpacks, outerwear, and other gear and there is a guest powder room nearby.
The master suite is situated on one side of the home for privacy and features a large master bedroom with trey ceiling accent, 10’ ceiling heights, and wonderful window views. The master bath is highlighted with good floor space and modern amenities; there are separate dual vanities and linen closets, a jetted tub, a separate shower, and a compartmentalized toilet area. The master walk-in closet is quite large and allows for spacious clothing and other apparel storage. Bedroom two and three are almost identical in size, both have window views and plentiful closet space. There is a shared hall bath with a vanity area, toilet, a tub/shower combination, and a nearby linen hall closet. This Craftsman plan features a lovely exterior, a functional floor plan and great outdoor space for the modern family.
