A home’s flow is all in its or­ga­ni­za­tion, and the Manch­ester B floor plan ex­e­cutes this point tidily.

The Manch­ester B is a du­plex model by Mat­tamy Homes in the com­mu­nity of Lake­pointe in Ch­ester­mere. The spa­cious, 2,065-square­foot du­plex of­fers three bed­rooms and a two-car, frontat­tached garage.

From the front foyer, a short hall­way passes a pow­der room to the left, then jogs slightly to the right, adding some pri­vacy to the sight­line from the front door.

Warm-hued, wide-board wood floor­ing sets the tone for the main floor.

The home ex­pands into an open con­cept kitchen, din­ing and great room.

The kitchen is set along the shared wall of the du­plex to the left, with the din­ing area next to it — mak­ing the most of the nat­u­ral light from the slid­ing glass doors onto the back deck.

The kitchen features dark­stained, five-panel wood cab­i­nets reach­ing to the ceil­ing. Gran­ite coun­ter­tops with light brown flecks join stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances.

A white tile back­splash is balanced by smaller brown tile ac­cents. Stylish pen­dant light­ing hangs above the is­land, which has a flush ex­tended eat­ing bar with space for four.

A nice touch in the kitchen is the se­ries of cab­i­nets with frosted glass fronts that are lit from within.

The great room is a friendly, spa­cious area, with a gas fire­place flanked by win­dows tak­ing cen­tre stage on the back wall. A dark-stained wood man­tle wraps the stone sur­round to frame it.

Next to the stairs to the up­per level, which faces the kitchen, is the en­trance to the mud room and the stairs to the base­ment.

This area has a handy built-in for drop­ping off bags and coats. It also con­tains a great built-in desk for or­ga­niz­ing house­hold af­fairs.

Be­cause it’s up a cou­ple of steps and out of drafts from both the side door and en­trance to the garage, it’s a cosy spot. It even in­cludes a dog bed for a furry fam­ily com­pan­ion.

Up the stairs from the kitchen is a loft on the right, which of­fers a fam­ily gath­er­ing space for TV or toys.

Rail­ings line the sides of the stair­well, pro­tect­ing the sight­lines in the loft and mak­ing the area seem much larger than it ac­tu­ally is.

A left U-turn at the top of the stairs leads to the bed­rooms.

The master bed­room is en- tered from dou­ble doors at the cor­ner of the room. Two tall win­dows look out over the back­yard, with space be­tween to set a chest of draw­ers.

The en­trance to the master en­suite features a walk-in closet to the right, with a dou­ble van­ity to the left. The van­ity is rimmed with a beau­ti­ful col­lec­tion of long, thin hor­i­zon­tal tile al­ter­nat­ing cross-sec­tioned peb­bles with glass. A cor­ner jet­ted soaker tub with win­dows above sets the tone for the spa oa­sis. A large shower has glass walls, smooth peb­bled floor and large tile walls, car­ried up from the floor.

Next to the master bed­room is a large laun­dry room with counter space, cab­i­nets and a sink.

Down a short hall from the laun­dry room is the main bath­room to the right, and the two sec­ondary bed­rooms at the front of the home.
