Stansbury an updated ranch style home
The contemporary ranch-style Stansbury has an open, welcoming look. Sidelights flank the door, and a wealth of additional windows sparkles across the front.
Shake-textured siding accents the upper triangles of each of its four front gables, while brick veneer columns and cladding bespeaks permanence. Each of the four shining coach lights is backed by a framed rectangle of custom brick, set in an intriguing herringbone pattern.
This single-level plan is traditional in the placement of a living room and dining room, accessed via mirror-image arched openings off the foyer. Built-in hutches flank the living room's mess-free gas fireplace, while another long hutch in the dining room fills about half of one side wall. A nearby opening feeds into the hallway and kitchen.
Day-to-day family living takes place in the core rooms at the rear. The family room is almost entirely open to the kitchen and nook. A gracefully arched opening marks the boundary, in tandem with a raised counter and eating bar.
Working at the built-in cook top, your eyes can take in almost every corner of the family living area, along with much of the patio and rear landscape. A sliding glass door fills the widest wall of the bayed nook, so this space is naturally bright. It also boasts an abundance of counters and cupboards.
A second gas fireplace serves as a focal point in the family room. Light washes in through slender windows on both sides.
