A comfortable array of contemporary amenities fill this transitional home plan, despite its engagingly traditional exterior. A richly windowed, vaulted great room flows into an equally bright, vaulted nook, then on into a kitchen with work island and step-in pantry. The utility room is linked to a two-car garage that doubles as mud room.

Radbourne sturdy outside, modern inside
Engagingly traditional on the exterior, the Radbourne offers a comfortable array of popular contemporary amenities inside. Gathering places fill most of the ground floor, along with utilities, a half bath and spacious owners' suite. Two more bedrooms are upstairs, plus a bathroom and deep bonus room.
The raised masonry keystone and lintel combine with stone veneer, multipaned windows, plus a wooden post and handrail to give it a comfortably solid, traditional look. A gabled garage with an arched window adds a dash of contemporary flavor.
Passing through the covered porch, you step into an entry with a den on the left, and a hallway to the right. That hallway provides direct access to a powder room, coat closet and a utility room complete with a deep sink. Because the utility room links to the two-car garage, it also doubles as a mudroom, and provides a convenient pet sleeping area as well.
Gathering spaces open out at the far end of the entry, just past the stairs. The great room flows unimpeded into a nook, expanded and brightened by a side window bay and sliding glass doors at the rear. Both areas have vaulted ceilings. Tall windows in the great room flank a gas fireplace where colorful flames and radiant warmth create a comforting focal point on dark days and nights.
Cupboards and counters wrap around the C-shaped kitchen on three sides, plus there's even more work and storage space in the central work island. The step-in pantry fills an entire corner.
A vaulted owners' suite fills the Radbourne's entire right side. Its long plant shelf rims the upper edge of the wall between the sleeping area and the private bathroom. Amenities include a dual vanity, step-in shower, and large walk-in closet.
