Craftsman Cottage Update Has Arched Porch and Transom
An eye-catching stone veneer arch links the bold squared columns that highlight the Elkheart's lofty front entry. Sidelights and an arched transom create a sparkling inner frame for the door, set further back in the recess created by the porch. All in all, it's stunning.
The door opens into a vaulted entry with double doors on the left that lead into a home office. Immediately after the first of two overhead shelves, a passageway to the right offers access to three bedrooms and a bathroom. The opposite hallway, on the left, goes to the powder room, kitchen, owners' suite, mud hall, garage, and stairs to a recreation room over the three-car garage.
Straight ahead, you step into a naturally bright and spacious vaulted great room. Light spills in through two skylights as well as two tall windows that flank a gas fireplace crowned by a gently arched, multipaned, clerestory window.
A large, L-shaped island with a raised rim bounds the kitchen and great room. The side that fronts the bayed dining area is a long eating bar. Other kitchen amenities include: a roomy pantry, cook top with hood, built-in appliances, and a desk.
Sliding doors in the dining room offer easy access to a vaulted and covered patio, that could be screened if desired. A deep utility room next to the kitchen also links with the covered patio. The toilet at its far end is conveniently placed for easy access.
Luxuries in the vaulted owners' suite include: a walk-in closet, walk-in shower, spa tub, private toilet, and dual vanity.
Over the garage, three skylights and two windows brighten the Elkhearts recreation room, which has its own bathroom and closet.
