Iconic Crafts­man win­dows sparkle across the front of the Suther­lin. Not sur­pris­ing, this be­ing an up­date of the Crafts­man-style bun­ga­low. Even the win­dows near the top of the garage door ex­hibit that de­fin­i­tive grid.

Other Crafts­man de­tails in­clude dec­o­ra­tive cor­bels, ta­pered sup­ports un­der­gird­ing slen­der twin posts, and shake tex­tured sid­ing that fills the gable ends. A king post and struts high­light the vaulted en­try, and a small cov­ered porch ex­tends off to the left.

Dur­ing day­light hours, nat­u­ral light spills into the vaulted foyer through side- lights and a tran­som. Dou­ble doors open into the vaulted den to the left of the foyer. Al­ter­nately, this makes a good lo­ca­tion for a home of­fice. An open­ing on the foyer’s right leads to the main bath­room and two be­d­rooms. The front bed­room feels larger, due to its vaulted ceil­ing.

Just past a wide coat closet, the foyer spills out into an ex­pan­sive vaulted liv­ing room. Win­dows fill much of the rear wall, and a gas fire­place nes­tles into the clos­est rear cor­ner. Slid­ing glass doors of­fer easy ac­cess to a wide cov­ered pa­tio.

The din­ing room has a flat ceil­ing but is oth­er­wise com­pletely open to the liv­ing room. The kitchen, in turn, is open to the din­ing room, across a raised eat­ing bar which hides the in­evitable clut­ter that ac­cu­mu­lates around a cook­top. The kitchen is also ac­ces­si­ble through a pocket door be­tween the roomy pantry and the bonus room stairs.

An open­ing on the op­po­site side of the Suther­lin’s liv­ing room leads to the wellap­pointed own­ers’ suite. It boasts a good-sized walk-in closet and a deluxe bath­room com­plete with a dou­ble van­ity, deep soak­ing tub and separately en­closed shower and toi­let.
