Susanville designed for comfy informality
The Susanville is a mid-size contemporary home designed for families who prefer comfortable, informal living spaces. It has no living room, but the bayed front-facing room can be outfitted as a dining room. Or it could just as easily be a den.
Great room, nook and kitchen flow together. All are large, and all but the kitchen have lofty vaulted ceilings that make these areas seem even more spacious. Windows line most of the rear wall. The space filled by the fireplace is, in fact, the widest unglassed expanse. Sliders in the nook open onto a patio that spans the entire rear of the home and is also accessible from the master suite.
Expanded by a windowed alcove, the nook is exceptionally bright. Kitchen amenities include an angled eating bar, efficient design, plenty of counter space, and built-in appliances.
Enter through the garage, and you can step right into a tiny bathroom or the laundry room without tracking mud elsewhere in the house. The bathroom is equally close to the front door, and handy to the kitchen as well.
The vaulted master suite is the only bedroom on the ground floor. It has a large walk-in closet, double vanity, and separately enclosed tub, toilet and shower.
Two more bedrooms are upstairs, where they share a third bathroom. A storage closet is at the top of the stairs. The Susanville's front bedroom is tucked under a dormer with a boxed bay that could be outfitted as a window seat. This room also has a walk-in closet, which provides about twice the storage space of the other bedroom.
