Sutherlin update of Craftsman bungalow
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.
