This home, with its European country touches, denotes the feel of a casual estate where all your needs are met. With over 6,000 square feet of living space, the features are indeed plentiful. Yet, the floor plan is refreshingly versatile. To begin with, the home offers two master suitesone on the main level and one on the upper level. One of the suites could be designated for a live-in relative, or the owners could plan to use the upper-level suitewhich has more lavish features, such as a bay sitting room, walk-in shower, and dressing closet with a built-in two-sided dresseruntil their later years, when single-level living has more appeal. Moreover, one of the suites could even be saved as a self-contained guest suite for frequent out-of-town visitors. Between the large, sun-filled breakfast nook, the formal dining room, and the circle-shape snack bar, the floor plan features plenty of dining space, so huge family dinners are easily accommodated. Dining space in the breakfast nook even extends outside to a patio, which features a built-in outdoor kitchen and barbecue area. A den, located across the foyer from the formal living and dining room, can be fashioned as a secluded retreat, or tailored to the needs of a work-at-home professional. Front and side entrances lead into a large mudroom with storage cubbies, closets, and a clean-up sink so the main parts of the home can stay tidy.
A bonus space and hobby room above the garage also can be developed into specialty spaces, such as a home theater, a game room, a teenager hang-out, and a childs playroom.
