Solid, warm and substantial, brick is in, and the house plan glories in it. A full coat of bricks covers its entire exterior. Columns, keystone arches and corner quoins add to the dignified appearance.
Family living areas dominate, with a swath of informal rooms cutting right down the center. The 18-foot ceiling in the foyer carries over into the street-facing, richly windowed eating nook.
A plant shelf that overlooks the passageway, wraps around to the front, while another plant shelf marks the juncture of kitchen and great room.
In the kitchen, two islands house a cooktop, sink, dishwasher and eating bar. Windows fill most of the rear wall.
The front-facing study could be outfitted as a living room or guest room. A bathroom there is accessible from within, and from the hallway.
Master suite and dining room both have classic coffered ceilings. In the master bathroom, a curved glass block wall next to the spa tub rounds out the space. Other features include: dual vanity, large walk-in closets, and separately enclosed shower and toilet.
Secondary bedrooms are in the opposite wing, as are steps leading up to a bonus room and down to the basement. A pass-through utility room connects the house to a roomy three-car garage with added space for a shop.
