This spectacularly gorgeous Craftsman home design features an exterior façade designed to capture your emotions and stir your senses with its combination of unique architectural design features. A beautiful blend of cedar shakes, stacked stone, exposed rafters, and window dormers create a striking and welcoming exterior. Wide columned beams atop stacked stone line the broadly proportioned wraparound porch and the soaring cupola adds charm and character to the home. The wrap around porch extends from the front of the home to the rear and features double pergolas and a rear covered porch along the way. This Craftsman house design would be a beautiful addition to any suburban or urban setting; however, the charm and character detailed in the home speak of alluring water views.
The front foyer features double benches and wardrobe cabinets for storage and a tidy entrance. Beyond the foyer is an expansive living room with a handsome fireplace flanked by window views overlooking the wraparound porch. A large dining space anchors the living room and gourmet kitchen and offers additional window views and column detailing. The kitchen is a wide open space with a plethora of cabinet and counter space along with corner sink views, an enormous walk-in pantry off the side wall and access to the rear porch. The two car garage leads to the mudroom with storage lockers, benches and a coat closet for book bags, winter gear, and other paraphernalia. A powder room for guest and interior laundry room with plenty of space for laundry chores along with crafts and hobbies are situated off the mudroom. The owner’s suite is a masterful use of space which provides a private oasis and relaxing space for the homeowner’s pleasure. There is a spacious master bedroom entered through French doors which features built-in cabinetry and a plethora of window views line the side and rear walls of the bedroom. The master bath is a gorgeous design that enjoys a large footprint with exemplary amenities and modern conveniences; there are dual vanities, a separate shower and adjacent sauna, a compartmentalized toilet and an elegant garden tub with outstanding views and an overhead cupola. At the rear of the master bath is an enormous master walk-in closet deserving of “superstar” status.
A double-sided staircase leads to the second story of the home where a large loft is available; this is a great second entertaining or private family space which features a built-in entertainment center and provides an overlook into the main living area. The second and third bedrooms are quite spacious with generous closet space and there is a Jack and Jill bathroom with double vanities. The fourth bedroom is an outstanding use of space; the bedroom measures in excess of 16’x13’ and offers an additional play area and reading nook with a triple wall of windows. A generous sized walk-in closet is attached and there is an adjacent full bath. Double attic spaces are diametrically opposed to one another and feature great seasonal storage space. This gorgeous home features an exterior façade which enjoys a “one-of-a-kind” status and an interior floor plan with approximately 3,197 square feet of space and a basement foundation which offers unlimited expansion possibilities.
