Baywood small in size but big on charm
The Baywood, with its two-story bay of multipaned windows, is small in size, large on charm. This three bedroom, two-and-one-half-bathroom home is designed to fit on a small lot. Its footprint is a mere 42 feet wide, by about 39 feet deep. Varied roof lines and a small covered porch add to the visual appeal.
Family living spaces fill the bottom floor. Nine-foot ceilings add volume to the lower level. The kitchen is unique in having two eating counters. One bounds the living room and the other provides separation from the dining room. This counter also doubles as a serving buffet.
Windows fill most of the dining room's front wall, making this a bright and attractive space to dine or entertain. You could build a window seat in the curve of the windows, if you like. This would be an ideal location for reading, or daydreaming.
From the centrally located kitchen you can keep your eye on everything. It's easy to watch the kids playing in the living room or patio. Turn the other way to gaze through the dining room windows at the street, or watch the seasons change through the window in front of the sink.
It's also well-designed. Kitchen, range, dishwasher and refrigerator are all within a few short steps of each other. Utilities, garage access and a small powder room are close by, just across the hall.
Upstairs, the Baywood's master suite has a small private bathroom with an oversized shower. Secondary bedrooms share yet another bathroom.
