Stratford is fresh North American chalet
Whether you call it a bungalow, cottage, or North American chalet, the Stratford's Craftsman styling, varied roof lines, strut-detailed gables, stone veneer chimney cladding and post supports invite people to pause and take a second look.
Knee-braced posts support an expansive deck on the left, which could come in very handy to take in the views down the slope. But there's no reason this two-story home couldn't be built on a flat parcel of land.
After passing through a vaulted porch, you step into a foyer with double doors on the right that open into a den or home office. An opening on the left leads into the kitchen, dining room and vaulted living room, all of which flow together in one expansive gathering space with a fireplace, wood box, and window seat.
The wide deck that wraps around the entire rear of this large, window-bright room is accessible from the front porch, kitchen, living room, and owners' suite.
Notable kitchen features include: a large, cook-top work island with a raised eating bar on two sides; built-in desk and major appliances; and an appliance garage. The kitchen has a panoramic view of the gathering space, deck, and beyond.
A deep pantry is tucked beneath the stairs, and laundry appliances are a few short steps down the hall, just past a powder room. The utility room is designed to double as a mud room. It links with the Stratford's garage and has a deep sink across from a bench with storage beneath that's great for stashing foot gear.
The vaulted owners' suite boasts a bright and cozy tub bay, along with a roomy walk-in closet, uniquely angled tile shower, and private toilet. Two bedrooms, a bathroom and a loft are upstairs.
