The Chestnut takes the classic country style cabin and updates it with a modern flair. With three finished stories and a small footprint, this home is versatile; it can fit on a narrow lot and still have enough room to fit the whole family comfortably.
A quaint covered porch adorns the home at the front door. Through the entrance is a foyer with a coat closet and a staircase leading upstairs. To the left is the interior front door that leads into the living area. The whole main floor is dedicated to the family living space. The casual, open style area has space for a living room that seamlessly transitions into a dining room and kitchen. The living room features a cozy fireplace to gather around and tall, two-story windows to let in an abundance of natural light. The dining room has an exterior exit onto the back deck, big enough to have a small outdoor table for entertaining. The kitchen has plenty of space with the addition of the island. The island is home to the range and oven and features a raised eating bar. The kitchen also has a good-sized corner pantry for additional storage.
Back at the entrance, up the stairs is the second floor dedicated to the master suite. The loft-style second floor allows for enjoyment of the natural light and views from the two-story windows at the front of the house. At the front of the loft is an office or study space, which could also be used as a reading nook. The master suite has a large corner, walk-in closet, and private master bath. The master bath features a large shower and a relaxing spa tub.
On the main level, there is a second staircase near the kitchen that goes down into the daylight basement. The daylight basement has a bedroom big enough for two and a family room. The family room can be a media room, game room, or easily converted into a third bedroom if needed. The basement has a private entrance leading into the mudroom and laundry room. This entrance would be ideal for cleaning up after a long day of play or work outdoors. The private entrance can also be ideal to turn the basement into a semi-private living space for an older child or a mother-in-law.
