Charming Calabro has wide-open layout
A spacious great room is at the core of the Calabro, a small three-bedroom home with a wide open feeling. Interesting windows, stucco detailing and a hip roof add street appeal to this contemporary Mediterranean-style plan.
As a change from homes with a clear delineation between living areas, there is no formal living room or dining room in this plan. But people who regard formal rooms as wasted space might find a relaxed, comfortable gathering area such as this one quite appealing.
The great room is totally open to the kitchen and offers sliding door access to a wide screened porch. The L-shaped kitchen has everything: oven and microwave, built-in cooktop, a corner appliance center, dishwasher, and pantry. An angled combination work island/eating bar provides minimal separation, and the great room has a wet bar with a counter and overhead cabinets.
Laundry facilities, including a utility sink, are but a few steps away. The utility room is also directly accessible from the garage, which comes equipped with a long workbench.
Amenities in the master suite are surprisingly luxurious. You enter through French doors, the walk-in closet is huge, and the bathroom has twin vanities and an oversized shower. Glass blocks create a short privacy wall. The other bathroom is just inside the entry, handy for children dashing in from play. A pocket door allows two to use the bathroom at once, both in complete privacy.
Bedroom three in the Calabro can be used as a study, and bedroom two boasts a vaulted ceiling and dramatic boxed-out window -- an ideal location for a window seat.
