Craftsman elements and a prairie-style hipped roof give an intriguing appearance to this home plan. Craftsman features include windows with multipaned uppers, and the tapered wooden columns set atop stone veneer bases.
Entering via the nostalgic front porch, you step into a vaulted entry that slopes up toward the rear. An arched opening on the right leads to a full bathroom and two bedrooms.
Just past a 10-foot-high display shelf at the far end of the hall, the space opens out into a vaulted, window-bright gathering space that comprises a living room, dining room, and kitchen. The ceiling slopes down toward the rear, where sliding glass doors provide access to a partially covered patio. A mess-free gas fireplace nestles into the living room's inner corner.
A flush eating bar rims the side of a peninsular counter that bounds the C-shaped kitchen, transforming it into more of a G shape. The built-in desk there is convenient to both the dining area and the kitchen, while a roomy walk-in pantry fills one entire corner. A wide window fronts the kitchen sink, allowing those working there to keep an eye on the backyard.
An arched opening near the fireplace leads into a hallway with links to the den, owners' suite, and a pass-through utility room that connects with the two-car garage. If desirable for use as a home office, a door could be added to provide a more direct path between the Riverside's entry and den.
The owners' suite has a private bathroom with a dual vanity, and a separately enclosed toilet and shower. Pocket doors to the large walk-in closet allow entry or concealment.
