Craftsman Brookport is Impressive, Stylish, & Functional0 Comments
It's easy to visualize the Brookport house plan as a vacation lodge on a lake, in the mountains, or along the ocean. But this spacious plan is also well-suited for an upscale neighborhood.
The exterior offers a pleasing medley of textures typical of Craftsman homes. Shingles fill gable ends, and triplets of small panes highlight the upper edges of windows. Stone veneer bases support the wooden columns lining the vaulted colonnade that leads to a beautiful double-door entry.
Inside, it's equally impressive. The vaulted living room has a central water feature. Natural light flows down through skylights, and more spills in through wide, high windows on both sides of the fireplace. Glass-centered double doors open out onto a covered porch at the rear.
The living room is open to a vaulted dining room with a built-in buffet next to a bank of display shelves. The large kitchen's range-top work island has a rounded eating bar that faces into the dining room. The kitchen also features a wood stove, prep sink, extra-deep walk-in pantry, and skylit nook.
Access to the large family room is via an opening in the nook and a hallway near the eating bar. A spacious utility room is nearby, along with the luxurious owners' suite and a roomy guest suite. Owners' suite featues include a large two-section walk-in closet, a sauna, walk-in shower and a private toilet. The two-sided fireplace can be enjoyed from the spa tub and/or the sleeping area.
Two more bedrooms are upstairs. Each with its own bathroom and balcony. A large bonus room and study with a covered balcony, fill out the rest of the second floor.
