The Lilac, a cape cod style house plan, is adorned with shingle siding and a welcoming stone columned covered porch. From the street this home may look like a single story but, designed for a downhill sloped lot, the home opens up into a daylight basement at the back. With four bedrooms and two living spaces, this home has a lot to offer.
Under the welcoming covered front porch, you'll find the front door that leads into a foyer. The foyer opens to the stairs and the end of the hall opens up into the living space. A large fireplace is the heart of the living room and makes a wonderful area to gather and converse. The benefits of the warm fireplace can also be enjoyed from the dining area at the back of the living room. The dining space also has an entry out to the deck for a convenient BBQ. The kitchen is towards the front of the house and is also open to the living space so the chef can be included in conversation while cooking. The central kitchen island adds even more workspace and an eating bar for quick meals. A mudroom sits at the back of the kitchen and leads into the two-car garage. The mudroom makes for a clean, organized entrance into the house.
Bedrooms surround the living space on either side. Back towards the foyer are two bedrooms that share a full bath between them. On the opposite side of the house, for optimal privacy and relaxation, is the master suite. The master suite is a spacious getaway for the homeowners. The bedroom includes a private exit to the deck and tall, vaulted ceilings to let in the natural light. The master bath has a soaking tub, dual vanity, and walk-in closet.
Downstairs, in the daylight basement, is a secondary living space. The large family room includes another fireplace and an exit out to the back yard. The family room could have alternate uses such as a game room or exercise room. The daylight basement also features a guest bedroom and a full bath. The remaining space in the basement provides ample storage or potential for unique hobit hole style reading nooks.
