This home blends the artistry of the Craftsman era with the convenience of today's open floor plan. Greet guests at the elegant front door, topped by a light-scooping transom and flanked by sidelites. Play host to a few or many in the formal living and dining rooms, separated only by a pair of columns and a change in ceiling height. Throw open the French doors in the living room and lets guests drift to the porch.
The wide-open spaces extend to the kitchen and family room, furnished with a fireplace and built-in shelves. From the sink peninsula, the cook can view the back yard or hobnob with everyone in the breakfast nook and family room.
The second floor accommodates private rooms-three bedrooms and a master suite. The master bath houses a shower, whirlpool tub, and a compartmentalized toilet. Adjacent to the suite, the den could be furnished as a private sitting area. This home plan allows for either a two- or three-car garage. With a three-car garage, bedroom three gains 90 square feet.
