At just 1,900 square feet, the cozy, country-style Ann Arbor isn't a large home, but it feels spacious all the same. The combination kitchen/family room has a lot to do with creating that sense of openness.
Located at the rear, this large space is bright and airy. Windows span most of that back wall, bringing the outdoors in, and a lofty vaulted ceiling adds volume. Still more light spills in through two skylights over the nook. During the darker months, the colorful flames and warmth of the gas fireplace serve as a focal point. Sliding glass doors in the nook open onto a wide patio with a built-in planter at center.
Sink and dishwasher are built into a counter that faces into the living area and could be used as an eating bar. A step-in pantry adds to the generous storage capacity. Utilities and a deep sink are tucked in a pass-through space that connects the kitchen to the garage.
The owners' suite, well separated from the other two bedrooms, has a walk-in closet and private bathroom with dual vanity. Shower and toilet are separately enclosed. Sliding glass doors at the rear provide direct access to the patio. The other two bedrooms share a two-section bathroom.
A traditional post-and-rail covered porch wraps around most of the Ann Arbor's living room exterior. It softens the light that illuminates the interior space, which helps slow the fading of draperies and furniture.
All of the living areas are on one level, so this plan could be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
