Description

The breezeway between the house and the garage also functions as the foyer. Windows flank the door on either side, and there's a large coat closet. As you step into the house, there are stairs to the upper (and lower) levels on your right, while the open living area is straight ahead and to your left. The living and dining area has a ceiling that vaults to a soaring 22' in the middle, while the ceiling in the kitchen is set at a cozy 8'.

Because of the angle of this unusual entryway you can consider either of two exterior walls as the "front" of the house. For the purposes of this description we'll assume the front of the house has a screened porch on the right rather than the left.

There's a large stone fireplace in the family room that can also be enjoyed from the kitchen and dining space. On the far side of the family room there's a glass door that opens to a screened porch with views in three directions. The rest of the wall where the door is located has four windows topped by two others near the peak of the vaulted ceiling. These windows wrap around the corner, creating a perfect place for dining. The open kitchen has an island for prepping and/or serving, and a pair of windows above the sinks provide light and views. Two small bedrooms that share a full bath occupy the rest of the main level.

The upper level is devoted to the "Couple's Realm". A trio of windows on one wall provide light and views, and there's another window above a built–in cabinet in a small corner nook. The ceiling in this bedroom vaults to 14' in the middle. In addition to a bath and a walk–in closet, there's a small loft area with a railing that looks down to the living area.

Should you decide to build the basement level, it's designed to have a bedroom with a full bath, a laundry room, a large rumpus room, and spaces for mechanicals and storage.
