Colonial-style Palmary has all the right touches
The Palmary is a colonial-style home with traditional detailing. Its symmetrical central section has all the right touches, from the arched and columned entry porch, to shuttered multipaned windows and attic dormers.
Inside, the layout is a comfortable blend of classic styling and contemporary amenities, starting with the elegant curved staircase that sweeps up the left side of the lofty two-story foyer. Move past it to step through an arch into a bright living room with a wide masonry hearth.
Columns flank another arched opening that leads to an elegant dining room with a stepped ceiling and applied molding detailing. Double doors on the foyer's opposite side open into a den which connects to the owners' suite. This room could serve as a home office, study or computer room.
Family room, kitchen and nook flow together in a bright and spacious informal living space. The kitchen offers a wealth of storage and work areas, including a central work island with veggie sink, and a walk-in pantry. Standing at the range, you can talk with people in the family room, gaze outside through rear windows, or watch flames dance in the fireplace. In the family room, a large entertainment center and small beverage bar fill one wall.
One powder room nestles in the passageway to the dining room. Another is at the far end of a utility room that connects with the side-entry three-car garage. A second stairway provides alternate access to the four bedrooms, three bathrooms, recreation and storage rooms upstairs.
Large and luxurious, the Palmary's owners' suite boasts two roomy walk-in closets, a Jacuzzi tub, oversized shower, private toilet and dual vanities.
