Cape Cod Trenton boasts unique layout
Spacious and bright, the Trenton breaks away from the predictable layout of many small homes. Placement of living spaces on three levels, and a diagonally-oriented great room help create this sense of uniqueness.
You enter at mid-level. The master suite is half a flight up from the group living areas. Stairs are just inside the entry. Another large bedroom is below the master suite, accessed from a hallway off the kitchen.
Notable features in the master suite include: a vaulted ceiling, an entire wall of closets, oversized shower, two basins, a soaking tub with a window bay, and French doors that open onto a street-facing private deck. On the upper landing there's a big linen/storage closet. A smaller coat closet is found on the bottom landing.
The lower bedroom is exceptionally large, with ample space for adding another bathroom. This area could also be outfitted as an artist's studio, a musician's practice space, a hobby room, or what have you.
The heart and soul of this plan is the vaulted great room, bathed in light that washes in through a window bay at one end, a sun room on the side, and clerestory windows above. The rear-facing kitchen also has a wide window in front of the sink. When days are dark, you can stoke up the stone fireplace for warmth and cheer.
The Trenton's eating bar bounds a kitchen with plenty of counter and cupboard space, including a wide pantry hidden behind folding doors. Utilities are mere steps away, in a pass-through cubicle that connects to the garage.
