Check this out! This is Plan # 141-1075, and it's got a lot to offer. You can tell that this home is one of a kind as you approach it from the street, but the more you get to know it, the better it is.
The first thing you'll notice is the clean Craftsman style. It has a quaint, "cottagey" feel to it that will put you at ease and make you feel right at home. You'll be tempted to sit and relax on the covered front porch, but we've got to keep moving -- you haven't even seen what's inside!
The great room is the central focus of the home. Its 11' trayed ceiling and tall windows give a great sense of openness and space, but at the same time, the gas fireplace gives it a warm and inviting character. House Plan # 141-1075 also has a rather luxurious master suite (also with a trayed ceiling), a relaxing master bath, main level laundry hook-ups, ample storage, two comfy bedrooms with a shared bathroom, and a bonus room above the garage, not to mention the handy flex space. But the feature I like the most has got to be the kitchen.
I absolutely love the kitchen! First of all, you've got a large breakfast area with windows on two sides, allowing plenty of wholesome natural sunlight. Or, for an even more informal and relaxing situation (such as a mid-afternoon snack), there is a very practical peninsula/eating bar. The kitchen itself is large and open, but in order for me to tell you about my favorite feature, I need you to use your imagination for just a moment...
It's Sunday afternoon. You've just finished a wonderful lunch with your family, and now all is quiet. Everyone else is taking a nap, but you've decided to resist the food-induced coma. You clear the table, and you're standing at the sink, scrubbing some dishes. You look out the window and see the early autumn rain falling gently on the front lawn. Some of the leaves on the trees are beginning to blush red and yellow. Rainwater is dripping from the eves of the roof onto your bright purple petunias in the flower planter right below the window. Perfect relaxation.
