Description

When you step into the house, there's a 5–foot–wide, 8–foot–tall ceiling above you that continues past the fireplace to the far wall of the great room. But just to your right, the ceiling in the great room pops up to a lofty 14'6", and it continues at this height until you reach the kitchen area. Three large picture windows in the rear wall of the great room are topped by three equally large windows above them, and they're flanked by glazed doors that open to the rear patio. The opposite wall at the porch is also glazed, with clerestory windows atop the large picture windows. This is clearly a house for someone with great views and a love of natural light.

The kitchen is completely open to the great room, and it too is filled with light. A long bumped–out bay is wrapped with windows, providing a nearly 180–degree view. The spacious kitchen features a center island with a breakfast bar, plenty of counter space, and a walk–in pantry. And the counter that wraps around the closet space of bedroom 2 until it meets a large coat closet has a handy bar sink with overhead cabinets. A sliding door separates the kitchen and great room from a back hall that leads to two bedrooms, a shared full bath, a spacious laundry room, and a 2–car garage.

The remainder of the house, on the other side of the great room, is devoted to the master suite. To reach the master bedroom you pass through a short hall with bookshelves lining one wall. Like the rest of the house, the bedroom has plenty of glass for views and light. The bath area features two separate vanity sinks, a large soaking tub beneath a pair of windows, a shower, and a private toilet. Next to it are His & Hers walk–in closets, which of course also have windows.
