Colonial Palmary Design Full of Right Touches0 Comments
The Palmary is a colonial-style house plan with traditional detailing. Its symmetrical central section has all of the right touches, from the curved and columned entry porch, to shuttered multipaned windows and attic dormers.
Inside, the layout is actually a relaxed mixture of classic style and modern amenities, starting with the stylish curved stairway that sweeps up the left-side of the lofty two-story foyer. Move past it to step-through an arch into a bright livingroom withe a wide masonry hearth.
Columns flank another arched opening leading to an elegant dining room with a stepped ceiling and applied molding detailing. Double doors on the foyer's opposite side open in to a den which connects to the owners' suite. This room might function as a home-office, computer room, or study.
Family room, kitchen and nook flow together in a bright and spacious casual living space. The kitchen offers a wealth of storage and work areas, including a central work island with a vegetable sink, plus a walkin pantry. Standing at the range, you can talk to people in the family room, gaze outside through rear windows, or view flames dance inside the fireplace. In the family room, a sizable entertainment center and small beverage bar fill one wall.
One powder room nestles in the passageway the dining room. Another reaches the far end-of a utility room that connects with the side-entry three-car garage. A second staircase provides an alternative access of the four rooms, three bathrooms, recreation and storage rooms upstairs.
Luxurious and large, the Palmary's owners' suite provides two spacious walkin closets, a Jacuzzi bath, oversized shower, privatel toilet and dual vanities.
