A brawny, lodge-style retreat, this home will enhance even the most picturesque setting. Starting with its rugged exterior, the homes shake shingles, wood garage doors, and gable-end brackets join with a stone-accented foundation and a sturdy entrance with flared columns to set a casual tone.
The informal air continues inside, where the living spacesincluding the kitchenare visible from the foyer. The wide-open floor plan shares light that spills in from a dormer above the foyer, from two-story great room windows, and from French doors and corner windows in the kitchen. Built-ins and amenities augment the living areas, including a kitchen island and niche, great room bookshelves, and columns around the foyer.
Appropriately, such openness doesnt extend to the bedrooms, three of which are clustered together at one end of the home and further separated by hallways. The master suite has a private door to the backyard, as well as two walk-in closets. A fourth bedroom with a private bath and living space is above the three-car garage. Accessed from the kitchen, this space is ideal for an older child or college student living at home.
