Palmer is bright and open
Four gables and an abundance of sparkling windows give the Palmer an inviting look, and there's plenty more to intrigue the eye. Stone veneer wainscoting combines with shake and lap siding to provide textural variety, while decorative corbels underscore the gable peaks.
This mid-size home is all on one level, with the exception of a deep bonus room over the garage.
A naturally bright, wide, open great room is at its core. Standing at the kitchen sink, you can survey a panorama of indoor and outdoor living spaces: great room, dining area, partially covered patio and rear yard. Those seated at the raised eating counter have an equally expansive view. Counters wrap around four sides of this modern kitchen, and custom-fitted bookshelves flank the passageway to the garage and bedroom wing.
The wide foyer serves as a nexus. On the right it links with the parlor, master suite, and great room. Turn left and it becomes a hallway that runs past the powder room and kitchen, then branches again to access the garage, utility room and secondary bedrooms.
Elegant double doors open into the vaulted parlor where windows fill most of the front wall. Multipaned windows above shoulder height highlight an eye-catching gas fireplace here, and yet another fireplace enlivens the great room.
A display nook nestles into a hallway corner just outside the Palmer's luxurious master suite. The sleeping area offers direct access to the patio, plus plenty of storage space. Two large closets, one of them a walk-in, flank the hallway that links the sleeping area to a master bathroom with a large shower, spa tub, dual vanity and private toilet.
