Natural light washes into the vaulted parlor through uniquely stacked windows facing the street. Openly linked gathering spaces form the core of this contemporary, cottage home plan well-suited for empty nesters or families with children. Being all on one level (excepting the bonus room over the garage), this plan easily adapts to wheelchair accessibility.
After passing under the gentle arch that highlights the porch, you step into a foyer. Arched openings there continue forward and to the right. A parlor and two bedrooms, each with a direct entry bathroom, fill the right wing.
A coat closet off the hall and a a mud hall with bench help minimize clutter.
In the kitchen, cabinets and counters wrap around three sides of a central work island with a flush eating counter fronting the dining area. Windows fill most of the rear walls there.
More windows run along the back wall of the great room, next to a corner gas fireplace. Access to a wide covered patio sits at the juncture of the great room and dining area.
Amenities in the owners' suite include a deep walk-in closet and a luxurious bathroom with twin vanities, a deep soaking tub, and a separately enclosed toilet and shower.
