More Than a Pretty Face

Stone and shingles create an earthy, beautiful exterior to this family home. From the covered porch entryway to the grilling porch at the rear, the layout offers plenty of spacious opportunities for togetherness. A magnificent balcony lends views of the great room, where a fireplace warms the space while light streams in from outside. A cut-out snack counter offers interaction with the kitchen while maintaining room definition. The first-floor master suite enjoys a private computer center and large walk-in closet. Other thoughtful amenities include a clever kid’s nook tucked away near the laundry room with a built-in bench to stash toys. For more images, information, and the floor plan, click here.
