An eye-catching chimney fronts the center section of this two-story Mediterranean-style home plan. Graceful arched openings link the foyer to what could be a home office on the left, and the wide living room/dining room on the right. Counters line all four sides of the large kitchen, which boasts a wealth of storage space as well.

Comfy Hazleton cuts a handsome profile
One somewhat unique feature of the Hazleton is a front facade that exists on several different planes. An eye-catching custom chimney fronts the two-story center section, flanked by a recessed porch on one side and a balcony on the other. Twin sets of slender columns accent these recesses while providing roof support.
Happily, what you don't see is a wall of garage doors. They're around to the left side, out of sight.
Stepping inside the foyer, you see two arched openings. Doors to a coat closet and bathroom cluster together in a short hallway on the left, along with a room with a walk-in closet. This room could be a guest room, den, home office, or whatever suits.
The right-hand arch opens into a wide living room, which in turn flows into a dining room. Windows flank a wide-hearthed fireplace which could be fueled by either gas or wood. More light spills in through windows on two sides of the dining room. The pocket door, that slides open for access to the kitchen, can be closed when more separation is desired.
On the opposite side of the kitchen, a peninsular counter houses a cook top, with ample counter space on both sides. In fact, this large kitchen has counters along all four walls, plus plenty of storage. And the view is terrific. You can keep tabs on activities in the two-story great room and nook, or lift your gaze to appreciate signs of the changing seasons outside.
The Hazleton's master suite is upstairs, an adult retreat well-isolated from the hustle and bustle of daily activities. Amenities include a spa tub, oversized shower, dual vanity and private toilet.
