Come home to your own private lodge retreat in the Myrtlewood. Craftsman detailing, window trim, lap siding and stone veneer wainscoting enlivens this contemporary angled farmhouse plan, designed for a corner lot. A triple set of king posts beneath gables and atop stone veneer posts adds an impressive visual flair to the vaulted, covered porch.
Step through the front door and into a tall entry situated near the center of the home, with plenty to see in all directions. Straight ahead, the entry opens up into the lofty, vaulted great room, complete with a large hearth fireplace and built-in entertainment center.
An expansive kitchen and breakfast nook lines the right side of the great room. This defined yet open floor plan encourages shared use of these spaces, whether for a family dinner or entertaining guests. A kitchen island features a built-in stovetop and hanging overhead appliance rack. Plenty of food storage is available in a walk-in-pantry connected to the kitchen, with deep wraparound shelves on two walls.
A formal dining room is separated from the great room and kitchen by a row of columns. And doors open out from the great room and breakfast nook to a wide, partly covered rear patio that provides another spacious enclave to entertain guests or unwind with family.
Back in the entry, a hallway branches left towards the home’s living and work areas. A set of double doors opens to the owners’ suite, which boasts a luxurious bathroom complete with his and hers closets, a double sink vanity, a large soaking tub, an impressive walk-in shower and a private toilet. Between two rear-facing bedroom windows, a door opens out from the suite to an additional patio area.
Back in the hallway, an entryway opposite the owners’ suite reveals a spacious home office, which could easily be converted into a library, den or even a guest bedroom, thanks to the adjoining half bath.
Several small closets provide storage space along the hallway, as it winds past the office towards a pair of secondary bedrooms. The bedrooms share a full bath, and each include walk-in closets and windows to let in natural light. Past the bedrooms and bathroom, a door opens to the large utility room, with a mud hall, washer, dryer, sink and storage space.
From the utility room, a pair of doors open to the Myrtlewood’s wide two-car garage, and out to the concrete driveway. The garage includes a freezer and pull-down access to an attic, plus a door opening out to the rear of the home.
