Corner quoins and stone accents impart a European flair to this
French Country-style, 2-story house plan
. A covered stoop leads
guests inside, where a 2-story-high entry hall is flanked by living
and dining rooms. An arched opening reveals immediate views of
the formal dining room with built-in hutch, bayed windows and
repeating arch accents. On the other side of the entry, double
doors open into the living room with its cozy fireplace.
Farther inside, the great room features a fireplace flanked by built-
in book shelves and easily accommodates friendly gatherings. An
arched opening connects the great room to the sunny kitchen,
which boasts ample counter space, a breakfast island work
station and walk-in corner pantry. Another arched opening leads
to the breakfast room that is flooded with natural light and
accesses the outdoors.
Just off the breakfast area, a foyer, with built-in servery for the
dining room, accommodates access to the second level as well as
to the 3-car garage
. A mud room with bench, counter and soaking
sink, lies adjacent to this practical area.
All sleeping quarters reside upstairs, where the master suite
occupies a significant portion of the second level. Double doors
lead into the master bedroom, which includes an adjacent sunlit
sitting room. The master bath features his-and-her vanities, a
soaking tub framed by elegant columns, shower, compartmented
toilet and spacious walk-in closet. Two hall baths serve the four
secondary bedrooms, which all have walk-in closets. A centrally
located laundry room with counter space and soaking sink
conveniently serves all bedrooms.
