Kentland is a duplex with Craftsman charm
The Kentland is a well-separated, two-story duplex with garages located between the units. Except for the shared garage wall, each unit has the feel of a single-family dwelling, and the look of a country cottage.
Unit A is a mirror image of Unit B, so the description of one applies equally to the other. The wide covered porch spanning the front creates a welcoming look, while also providing a space for enjoying fresh air. In summer, a porch swing or a couple of chairs could make it more enjoyable.
Inside, the foyer opens out into a combination living and dining room on one side, while a convenient powder room hides behind a pocket door on the opposite side. The foyer's coat closet is right there as well.
Light spills into the large combination gathering space through windows that fill most of the front and rear walls, and more washes in through another wide window set on the side. The windows at the back slide open to offer access to a covered patio there, ideal for outdoor dining when the air temperature is inviting. This patio could easily be screened.
The kitchen is partially open to the dining room, and surprisingly large. Counters, cupboards, and built-in appliances span the walls on all four sides. Standing at the kitchen sink, you can easily keep an eye on children playing in the back yard, or simply enjoy watching seasonal changes.
Three bedrooms are upstairs, where they share a two-section bathroom. The owners' suite has a large walk-in closet plus direct entry to the bathroom.
Each of the Kentland's garages has two doors: one that opens into the kitchen, and another that leads to the back yard.
