Coun­try-style fam­ily home

The Compass - - PART 5 -

DPlan 6-3-343 ormer win­dows and a spec­tac­u­lar wrap-around ve­randa en­hance the wel­com­ing char­ac­ter of this three-bed­room, coun­try-style fam­ily home.

In­side, the raised en­try leads into an ex­pan­sive area de­signed with dayto-day liv­ing in mind. The great room, sep­a­rated from the foyer by a halfwall, fea­tures a gas fire­place and slop­ing ceil­ing.

The kitchen and din­ing area form an open ex­ten­sion of the great room, mak­ing a large liv­ing area that is per­fectly suited to to­day's fam­i­lies, who pre­fer an in­for­mal life­style.

French doors add charm to the de­sign of this area, as well as pro­vid­ing easy ac­cess to the gar­den.

The kitchen is planned for ef­fi­cient meal-prepa­ra­tion and to keep the cook in touch with the rest of the fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties. An eat­ing counter is use­ful for chil­dren's snacks and meals, a ca­sual lunch or cof­fee with friends.

A three-piece bath­room with linen closet sep­a­rates the kitchen from the third bed­room, al­though this main­floor bed­room could serve as a den or home of­fice, if de­sired. A large laun­dry room, with di­rect ac­cess to the dou­ble garage, pro­vides ad­di­tional stor­age space.

Up­stairs, the mas­ter suite has a unique charm en­hanced by eight-foot slop­ing ceil­ings. A soaker tub and cor­ner shower fit ef­fi­ciently into the en suite bath­room. The sec­ond bed­room up­stairs also has its own pri­vate three­piece en suite. If the home­own­ers are empty nesters an al­ter­na­tive op­tion with this floor plan would be to con­sider this sec­ond bed­room as a bonus room and use it as a li­brary, den, or per­haps a sewing or hobby room.

The house is 47 feet, 4 inches wide with the same depth, to­talling 1,684 square feet of liv­ing space and in­cludes an un­fin­ished base­ment.
