A soaring roof and an eye-catching combination of lap siding and stone work make the Kensington 2 a country house plan worthy of a second look. The decorative railing along the covered porch adds to the welcoming charm.
Through the front door, you enter into the combination foyer and air lock. Ideal for those living in environments with extreme temperatures, the airlock helps to keep the living area of the Kensington stable blocking the rushes of hot or cold air depending on the season. Just inside the front door a coat closet is nearby and there is room enough for a small bench.
Walking through the pocket door, the floor plan opens up to the living room with a cozy corner fireplace. To the right is a set of stairs that leads up to the second floor. Towards the back of the living room another set of stairs transitions to a landing that provides access to the attached, side entry 2 car garage and then continues down to the basement.
The back of the main level is filled with the kitchen and informal dining room. Both of these rooms are completely open to one another allowing conversations to seamlessly flow between the two rooms. The kitchen is a comfortable size and offers counter space and cabinets along three walls. At the center is an island adding to the work space in the kitchen or acting as a buffet for snacks when entertaining.
A hallway off the dining rooms leads to a home office, the laundry room and a small powder bathroom.
This two story home plan has all of the sleeping areas on the second floor along with a large recreation room. The Kensington 2 offers 4 bedrooms with the largest room towards the front of the home serving as the master suite. The suite has a roomy step-in closet plus a private bathroom complete with separate shower, soaking tub and vanity.
The three other bedrooms share a full bathroom. The recreation room is just a few steps down from the sleeping area and provides ample flexibility for homeowners’ to finish this space to their desires or needs.
