Compact Craftsman Carlton Feels Roomy Inside0 Comments
Craftsman-style tapered posts give a nostalgic look to this otherwise modern cottage. These posts support the Carlton’s covered porch, which spans the front and wraps around the right. A sparkling line of multipaned windows runs across the top of the garage door.
Other Craftsman touches include stone veneer column supports and decorative gable accents, plus multipaned window uppers on three sides of the home.
Inside, the foyer segues into a hallway that cuts right down the center, splitting your house into two sides. Bedrooms and bathrooms comprise the right wing. A comfortably spacious family living area fills out the left side, behind the utility room and two-car garage up front.
Family members parking in the garage may enter the kitchen/gathering place via the utility room. People parking around the street will enter through the foyer. Its extended passageway runs by two-bedroom hallways on the right, along with coat and storage closets on the left.
Then it widens out to the central living area where natural light washes in through windows filling most of the rear wall. A gas fireplace nestles to the right rear corner, while sliding glass doors offer comfortable access to your partially covered patio on the left.
An raised eating bar rims the counter that bounds the C-shaped kitchen. Standing at the kitchen sink, you'll be able to gaze to the side and rear yards, but still scope out the gathering space by simply turning your head.
Amenities in the Carlton’s owners’ suite include a spacious walkin closet and a two-section bathroom having a dual vanity and a large shower. One linen closet is tucked in to the hall to the suite. An similar linen closet is in the hallway to the secondary bedrooms and main bathroom.
