Unexpected Amenities

The wide kitchen island – complete with a snack bar and vegetable sink – is an unexpectedly luxurious amenity that buyers will love in this 1,529-square-foot home. They’ll also be drawn to the master suite’s smart details: two sinks, a foyer to screen the bedroom from view of public spaces, and a walk-in closet. A covered patio invites outdoor living.

This plan doesn’t skimp on the fireplaces, kitchen space, or porches. Cozy hearths warm the great room, screen porch, and deluxe master suite (don't miss the circular, glass-enclosed sitting room here). There's room at the kitchen's snack counter for many visitors to pull up seats, with an extra island inside adding prep space. Two additional bedrooms each access a porch. Thoughtful amenities include a mudroom entrance from the garage and a large bonus room upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plan. So Much Seating

Many kitchens only have room for two or three bar stools. Not this one: there’s room for six people at the peninsula counter. For even more counter space, an island easily serves up snacks to the great room. A fireplace warms the cozy hearth room/dining nook, which opens to the wide back porch. Homeowners will appreciate the convenience of having the master bedroom on the first floor, as well as the suite’s privacy-preserving foyer and huge walk-in closet. The second floor holds two additional bedrooms, plus an optional fourth bedroom and bonus space. Outside, beautiful stone, shingles, and a copper roof overhang create an unforgettable exterior.

Here's a plan that's designed for how modern families live. The emphasis is on the open kitchen, where a snack bar offers room for casual meals and a sink at the island lets buyers prepare food within earshot of the great room. The dining room is anything but stuffy, with terrific openness to the other living spaces and an adjoining covered porch. A two-sided fireplace warms both the great room and the study. Upstairs, a huge shower and walk-in closet add practical luxury to the master suite. Three more bedrooms share a full hall bath with two sinks. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
