Modest Evelyn has lots of simple charm
The Evelyn's simply charming porches, almost identical in style, are gracefully inviting access points in both the front and the back.
Slender wooden columns support the porch gables, while decorative supports and handsome beams underscore their peaks. Shake-textured siding fills the apexes of the larger gables that back up the porches, echoing their upward-thrusting lines.
One long hallway runs straight through the home, front to back. Its first section is an inner entry. Double doors on the left open into what could be a den, home office, guest room, or you-name-it.
An arched opening marks the juncture to the next section of hallway. The gallery wall here is ideal for displaying art or family photos. Arched openings on the right lead into the owners' suite and another bedroom. The opening on the left takes you to yet another bedroom, along with the main bathroom. All three bedrooms boast roomy walk-in closets.
Family and friends will enjoy spending time together in the combination kitchen and great room that fills the rear. Windows take up most of the back wall, so this space is naturally bright.
The kitchen spans one side wall and wraps around to fill half of the rear. Standing at the Evelyn's kitchen sink, you have a clear view of the backyard, as well as the entire great room. There's plenty of room here for a large table, handy for homework as well as meals.
The gas fireplace across the room creates a warm, comforting focal point, particularly appreciated on drab days and long, dark nights. Convenient, built-in shelves that fill one wall can be used for books or art display.
