Warm earth tones highlight the exterior of this Craftsman house plan with beautiful stone and brick work along with rich honey colored wood in the two split gables. Arches over the garage and arched openings atop the front covered porch lie in juxtaposition to the edges of the home softening the exterior. Four bedrooms and two plus bathrooms are incorporated into the approximate 2,470 square feet of living space in addition to a 389 square foot bonus room on the second floor of the home. The centrally located great room is a fantastic entertaining space; the room measures in excess of 18’x21’, has a warming fireplace and built-in cabinets along with a media center. From this room is a great overview of the open living, dining and kitchen space where an enormous breakfast bar features casual dining space. The remainder of the kitchen features a peninsula bar, a corner walk-in pantry and a plethora of modern amenities. The kitchen anchors both the formal dining room and informal breakfast room; both rooms feature generous floor space, great window views and the breakfast room has rear porch access. The rear grilling porch is fabulous space in which to host special family events, bar-b-que with friends or relax and read. There is a powder room for guests and the conveniently located laundry/mudroom sits directly over the two car garage. The main level master suite features private access to the rear porch, a triple wall of windows on the rear wall of the bedroom and a self-contained home office/computer room. There is an en suite master bath with whirlpool tub, separate shower and double vanities before accessing the enormous master walk-in closet.
The second story staircase extends onto the hall balcony with overviews onto the great room below. Along the hallway, is a computer/homework station for the children, a large linen closet and a shared hall bath. There are three spacious bedrooms; each has generous closet space and there is a large bonus room which could be utilized as a playroom for the children. This is a great family home with lots of versatile interior space and an attractive exterior façade.
