The Springdale extends a gracious welcome
Gently arched windows fill both of the Springdale's front gables, creating an open and welcoming front facade. Brick detailing adds a sense of permanence. This plan's slender footprint (40 feet) makes it suitable for construction on a narrow lot.
The high-ceilinged foyer is naturally bright. Plants on an overhead shelf flourish in light spilling down from the gabled window above, while more light washes in through the transom and sidelight. Display shelves line the left wall.
Three vaulted gathering areas give the home a sense of spaciousness that belies its size. The front-facing den has a wide bay window that could be outfitted with a cozy window seat. This room could also serve as a hobby room, home office, or whatever suits.
Kitchen, dining room and living room are visually open, yet distinct living areas. A raised eating bar, accented by columns, bounds the kitchen and dining room. Further back, a high plant shelf caps a second set of columns that flank a pony wall separating the dining room and living room. Sliders at the rear open onto a partially covered patio.
Counter space is generously supplied in the large kitchen, and storage capacity is more than ample, augmented by the roomy walk-in pantry. The dining room boasts a built-in hutch, and yet more cabinetry lines the walls in the pass-through utility room that connects to the garage.
Master suite amenities in the Springdale include a large walk-in closet, and a bathroom with dual vanity. The water closet and shower are separately enclosed. Secondary bedrooms share a central bathroom with a combination tub and shower.
