Elsmere, a traditional country house plan, manages to be both modern and timeless. Lap siding and cultured stone veneer wainscoting with raised stone caps span the front facade. Elegant columns with raised trim give the home an added air of sophistication. A four-foot window is seen in the front of the home, ensuring the house will have natural light filtering through. Due to this, Elsmere’s rooms are washed in warmth and light.
While Elsmere’s exterior is traditional, the interior is contemporary, with an open style great room. The open gathering space unifies the home and offers a sense of intimacy and provides a seamless and clean, inviting a second look.
Private rooms are off to the right of the foyer while a den is to the left through a set of sliding pocket doors. This flexible space can be used for an additional media room, guest bedroom, playroom, or home office.
Just steps down the entry hall is a utility room, complete with a washer and dryer set, that feeds into the capacious garage, large enough to fit multiple vehicles.
Living spaces fill the back of the home. The Elsmere’s kitchen is bright and airy. The area contains a deep pantry, a cooktop island rimmed on one end by a flush eating bar, appliances, and generous workspaces.
The kitchen opens to the impressive Great Room. The room holds a fireplace and is a perfect spot to entertain. The charming dining room is to the left of the Great Room. With access between these rooms, the spacious covered patio is ideal for family gatherings or social events in any type of weather.
Three adjacent bedrooms and two bathrooms are located on the right side of the home. The luxurious owners’ suite is immense, containing a large walk-in closet, lined with shelves. Other impressive amenities include a substantial shower, dual sinks, and a private toilet. The additional bedrooms share a bathroom, complete with a tub and shower.
