Design has modern feel, nostalgic look
The Lawrence is a small home, measuring in at just over 1400 square feet. Intriguing roof lines and a covered porch give it a nostalgic charm, but the interior layout is totally contemporary. It even has three bathrooms. The plan's narrow footprint allows it to fit comfortably on a small lot.
Multipaned windows sparkle across the front facade, creating a bright living room. The small bathroom just inside the front door is particularly handy for families with young children, who typically don't like to interrupt their play for long. A small coat closet is just across the hall.
Kitchen and dining room are at the rear, with only a peninsular counter separating the two spaces. Line up some stools along the edge and you've got an eating bar. It's also a handy place to hang out and converse with the family members working in the kitchen.
Counter space is ample, with open sections along four sides. Stove, sink and refrigerator are laid out in a triangle that minimizes wasted steps. Utilities are also conveniently close, tucked in a pass-through space that connects to the garage.
The master suite spans the entire right side of the main floor. Closet space is surprisingly generous for a home this size. The large walk-in is right across from a second closet that's as large itself as those found in many bedrooms. Amenities in the master bathroom include dual vanity, oversized shower and linen storage.
Secondary bedrooms are upstairs where they share the Lawrence's third bathroom. The bedroom on the right is ever-so-slightly larger and has a walk-in closet.
