Modest Birmingham feels open, adaptable
A vaulted great room dominates the main floor of the Birmingham, an approximately 1,800-square-foot country-style home with a small second story. This plan could serve as a starter or retirement home, with the two bedrooms upstairs kept ready for grandchildren or other guests.
The first impression is one of openness. In the entry hall, the ceiling is two stories high with light spilling in through two windows overhead.
Take a few steps to the left, and you'll find yourself in a vaulted great room with a fireplace. This room spans the home, front to back. A wide bay window faces the street, and French doors at the back open onto a small deck.
A laundry room and a small powder room are close to everything, including the garage. Pull-down steps in the garage provide access to storage space overhead, and there's also a small storage area on the ground level.
In the Birmingham's master suite, French doors open onto a private deck. Amenities here include a walk-in closet and a dual vanity.
Two small bedrooms and a bathroom are upstairs. From the landing at the top of the stairs, you can overlook the entry.
