  • Three front gables of varying sizes give a welcoming look to this compact home plan. Brick wainscoting and multipaned windows, one of them arched, add to the visual appeal, as does the wide covered porch.
  • A spacious and comfortable family room forms the core of this home, with other rooms wrapping around it on three sides and a small patio on the fourth. Two glass doors that swing open for easy access are next to a fireplace tucked in the rear corner. The kitchen's eating bar and the family room's trayed ceiling help define these areas.
  • Counter space is plentiful in the C-shaped kitchen. Two or three people can work companionably there without getting in each other's way, and the nook is roomy enough for a good-sized table.
  • A slender sidelight brightens the entry. Straight ahead is a small coat closet, and next to it, a stack of triangular display shelves great for displaying family treasures. To the right is a window-bright room that could be outfitted as a living room, home office, home entertainment center, or you name it. It could even be another bedroom, if that's what's needed.
  • The owners' suite boasts a large walk-in closet and a private bathroom. Amenities here include a dual vanity and a shower. Utilities are just outside the door, in a passthrough space that connects the house and garage.
  • Secondary bedrooms are across the home with a bathroom and linen closet between them. The front bedroom (or study) has a vaulted ceiling.
