Curb-appeal is achieved with this newly revived Craftsman exterior. As your neighbors stroll by, walking their dogs or chasing small children on tricycles, their gaze will inevitably turn to the delightful architectural details that adorn your home. Cedar shake siding surrounds the windows in both gables, each crowned by decorative brackets. Providing a comfortable place to relax in the shade is a covered front porch, supported by bungalow-style tapered columns on stone bases. The stone is repeated in the siding on the living quarters of the house, and the three car garage is finished with pale green siding. A honey-colored wooden front door is flanked by handsome sidelight windows.
A large rear covered porch complements the livability of this home. Accessorize with a grill, patio set and ceramic planters. An over sized three car garage, measuring 22′ x 40’6″, is provided for real-sized vehicles. The family entry from the garage is informal, and we love the convenient features: a laundry room to the left and powder room and closet to the right before you enter the kitchen. Speaking of the kitchen, the most frequently used room in every house, it is fully-equipped with a wrap-around raised bar, a large pantry and a breakfast nook. Elegant marble counter tops mesh nicely with stainless steel appliances and pendant lighting.
The master bedroom is nestled at the back of the house with a set of double doors that open to the backyard. Designed with every comfort in mind, the master bath includes a large jet tub, a custom built shower and double sinks. At 17’2″ wide by 6′ deep, the walk-in closet provides almost unlimited possibilities for wardrobe organization.
As you see in the image, this expansive great room features a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a gas log fireplace. Built-in shelving matches the wooden mantle, and the white painted trim looks beautiful with wood flooring and yellow painted walls.
Two smaller bedrooms face the front of the house and share the guest bathroom, while the remaining bedroom may be used as a family member suite with its own full bathroom. Additional rooms rounding out the features of this home include an office and a dining room that is separated from the great room by one elegant supporting column.
With a split-bedroom layout, this plan is perfect for a growing family. Rooms are designed large enough to have added space for a comfortable lifestyle. Click here to see more interior images and the floor plan.
