Chesapeake a handsome family home
Painted shutters, slender porch posts and a trio of gables attract appreciative glances to the Chesapeake, a mid-sized home with a dash of Cape Cod flavor. Arched openings on the covered porch and a round window in the central dormer also catch the eye.
Entry and great room are vaulted, creating a striking sense of spaciousness. Light spills down from the round window in the overhead dormer, and more light washes in through the windows and French doors that fill most of the rear wall.
Plant shelves encircling the entry are visually appealing whether filled with plants or left open. Square columns with capped half walls mark the boundaries between the entry, great room, and hallways that lead off to the right and left.
Fireplace, bookshelves and an entertainment center fill one wall of the great room. Across the way, an arched opening leads to the dining room and kitchen. Amenities in the kitchen include an eating bar, desk, pantry, and plenty of counter and cupboard space.
Utilities and a small powder room line the passageway to the garage, while steps to the bonus room over the garage are just around the corner.
Bedrooms are all on the right. Access to the master suite is at the rear of the great room, across the hall from a large linen closet. Double doors open onto the rear deck. Other luxuries include a roomy walk-in closet and dual-compartment bathroom with double vanity.
Three secondary bedrooms share another bathroom with twin lavs. The room closest to the Chesapeake's entry could be furnished as a den or home office.
