Wisteria Exudes Craftsman-Bungalow Charm
It's hard to overlook the Wisteria's Craftsman bungalow charm. You can't miss the symmetrically spaced, tapered porch columns, multipaned window uppers, wide eaves, and decorative gable supports. An old-fashioned, wooden porch swing would be right at home here.
When you step into the wide foyer, a display niche is directly ahead. On the left, the foyer expands out into a living room with a wide window and a gas fireplace. An arched opening there leads on into the dining room.
The dining room actually has openings on three sides, and a wide window on the fourth. The opening that links with the kitchen has a pocket door, which provides separation when desired. Opening number three is wide, arched, and offers easy access to the stairway, hallway, and great room. Another display niche nestles into an angled corner across the hall.
An expansive great room flows together with the spacious kitchen at the rear. Its long counter, rimmed by a raised eating bar, marks the boundary. Counters and cabinetry wrap around sections of four sides, and a roomy walk-in pantry is off the great room, just a few steps from the kitchen.
The great room is naturally bright, with one wide window at the far end, along with French doors and another wide window lining the back. A wood stove fills one corner. The French doors lead out onto a covered patio that spans the entire back.
Two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a loft are on the Wisteria's second level, while the owners' suite is on the ground floor, well away from noises that might conflict with peaceful slumber. Amenities include a large walk-in closet, and a private bathroom with deep soaking tub and dual vanity.
