Hayward centers on family room
The Hayward is a large, rambling, richly windowed home designed for construction on a good-sized piece of land.
A wide railed porch wraps around the exterior of the bayed living room, a cheerful space entered through double doors. Built-in bookshelves flank the fireplace on the opposite side of the room. Another window bay expands the vaulted dining room, and this elegant space is further brightened by an overhead dormer window.
Natural light from another dormer spills down to brighten both the entry and graceful open stairway. This plan has a basement, as well as a small second story. Basement stairs are located under the ascending staircase.
The kitchen is huge and well-equipped. Amenities here include a large work island with built-in cook top, a pantry, a bayed nook, and a sunny triangular space in front of the sink for plants. Oven, microwave and dishwasher are also built in. Washer and dryer are right around the corner in a large utility room with a long counter.
Even larger than the kitchen, the family room has sliding French doors that lead out onto the deck. Another set of French doors open into a screened porch that could be glassed. The room adjacent to the dining room and kitchen could be used as a home office, sewing room, hobby or exercise room, or whatever suits your fancy.
Luxuries in the Hayward's master suite include a walk-in closet, a large spa tub softly illuminated by light filtering through glass blocks, two basins and a custom shower. Secondary bedrooms and a two-section bathroom are upstairs, where the front bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and dramatic half-round window.
