Porch Wraps Around to Mudroom

In the main gathering areas, the kitchen's snack bar overlooks the dining bay and great room, where a wall of windows provides a view of the covered patio. Windows on three sides illuminate the master suite, which also boasts a walk-in closet and deluxe bathroom. Two more bedrooms are situated conveniently close to the laundry room. Don't miss the bright breakfast bay. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
