Shuttered windows, flower boxes, and a covered porch adorn the front of the Kent, a ranch style house plan. 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 hall has extensive wall space with the potential to be an art or photo gallery. 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 U-shape of the kitchen allows for ample counter space and storage. The central kitchen island adds even more workspace and an eating bar for quick meals.
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. To get to the master suite, you must go down a long hall that includes the mudroom, a half bath, and the laundry room. The mudroom has access to the two-car garage and has built-in storage to make an organized drop zone.
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 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.
