Slender Lindley an eye-catching cottage
The Lindley is a ranch-style cottage with eye-catching Craftsman accents. Its slender profile allows it to fit neatly on a narrow width lot. The open, single-level floor plan makes it well-suited for wheelchair accessibility.
Raised trim ornaments the clean-lined wooden posts that support and highlight the front porch. Board and batt siding fills the ends of the low-sloped gables, and decorative corbels underscore the gable-end projections.
As you enter, the three interconnected family gathering spaces spread out before you, creating a surprising sense of spaciousness. A coat closet is to the right while the opposite door offers a direct link to the garage.
The living room flows into a dining area that is open to the kitchen. Each of these three areas has a side window, with the sliding glass doors in the dining room being the largest. These offer access to a covered patio. Twin sets of slender wooden posts support the patio roof.
A long eating bar rims one edge of the peninsular kitchen counter. This feature is also ideal for the supervision of homework, and for keeping family members and guests out from underfoot while they chat with the kitchen crew.
Kitchen counter space wraps around four sides, providing expansive work surfaces for families that enjoy cooking together. A small pantry adds to the already generous cupboard space, and a door at the rear opens onto a stoop. The family dog will love this feature.
Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a utility alcove fill the left side. The Lindley's owners' suite has a large walk-in closet and private bathroom with oversized shower.
