While some town­home plans clamp down on square footage in ar­eas such as the great room, the Slate gives this space the star treat­ment.

Its great room is rem­i­nis­cent of some­thing from a sin­gle­fam­ily home with an ex­pan­sive, airy space of­fer­ing enough room for a large fur­ni­ture set and even a spot for shelv­ing. Adding to its open feel­ing are nine-foot ceil­ings. The ceil­ing has a knock-down tex­ture through­out the home, ex­cept for the clos­ets.

The Slate is a stylish, func­tional 1,187-square-foot bungalow style town­home with two bed­rooms and two bath­rooms. It’s part of a de­vel­op­ment by Brook­field Res­i­den­tial in Cranston called Har­vest Mo­saic.

The fo­cal point of the great room is a stylish gas fire­place and man­tle flanked by built-in cab­i­nets. These cab­i­nets front set­back sec­tions of the wall where it makes sense to add per­son­al­ity with an ac­cent paint or funky wall­pa­per. Plenty of sun­shine pours into the great room thanks to over­sized front­fac­ing win­dows. These win­dow are vinyl glad for en­ergy ef­fi­ciency.

“The spa­cious lay­out of the Slate, com­bined with its func­tional de­sign, of­fers the per­fect set­ting where home­own­ers can en­joy hav­ing the flex­i­bil­ity to trans­form their home as needs and life­styles evolve,” says Kelly Hal­l­i­day, sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager for Brook­field Res­i­den­tial.

“What makes this sin­gle level liv­ing floor plan so spe­cial is its spa­cious pa­tio and en­ter­tain­ing space.”

This pa­tio has space for large deck fur­ni­ture and is an ideal back­drop for en­ter­tain­ing on a warm sum­mer evening.

Around the cor­ner is a gal­leystyle kitchen and cor­ner din­ing area nes­tled against a rear­fac­ing win­dow.

The kitchen boasts lam­i­nate counters, a dou­ble stain­less steel sink with a sin­gle-level pull out faucet, and a ce­ramic tile back­splash un­der the up­per-cab­i­nets. Down the hall from the din­ing space are the two bed­rooms. One of the bed­rooms has an en­suite and there’s also a full bath­room.

The bath­rooms have lam­i­nate counters, a one-piece tub­shower com­bi­na­tion and white plumb­ing fix­tures.

A larger ver­sion of the floor plan, called Slate II, is of­fered at Brook­field’s de­vel­op­ment in River­stone of Cranston named Mo­saic River­stone.
