The Maple Bay is a farmhouse-style upgrade on a traditional house plan look; with gabled roofs and raw timber decks, it's sure to fit into any neighborhood. From the street, only the main floor is visible, but the home is designed for a downhill sloped lot, and the floor plan expands into a daylight basement.
The front door enters in on the main level of the house, through a walk-through foyer. In through the interior front door, there is a coat closet to the left and the staircase to the right. The staircase serves as a separation of space between the living area and the hallway to the master suite. Straight ahead, past the staircase, is the living area. Bright and open, the living area is surrounded by windows overlooking the back deck and yard. The living room features an impressive two-way fireplace surrounded with a grand hearth. The dining room serves as a transitions space between the living room and kitchen. Elegant double doors open from the dining room onto an expansive deck, convenient for outdoor dinner parties. The kitchen, just off the dining room, is a distinct space. The L-shape counter space includes a space for an extra-wide refrigerator. The centerpiece is a unique crescent-shaped island with a four-person eating bar. Around the corner from the kitchen are a storage closet and a laundry room, along with the entrance in from the garage. The garage is a two-car garage and accessed from the front of the house.
Along the front of the house, on the other side of the stairs, is the master suite. The master bedroom gets to enjoy the opposite side of the two-way fireplace. The master bath is accessed through a walk-in closet. Although this bathroom is shared with the main level, it does not lack the usual master bath amenities. It includes a two-person spa tub, dual vanity, and corner shower.
Down the stairs, the daylight basement adds extra living space and three additional bedrooms. One bedroom has private access into a full bathroom and can serve as a secondary master bedroom or guest suite. The downstairs family room has a cozy fireplace to keep it warm in the winter. This space could also be used for a game or hobby room. The daylight basement also includes two separate, large storage spaces that could be converted to usable space, such as an exercise room.
