Open Oakdale ideal for accessibility
Whether you call it small or midsize, the Oakdale is a contemporary Prairie-style home with a cluster of large gathering spaces at its core. This plan is adaptable for wheelchair accessibility.
Classic stone veneer wainscoting wraps across the front, and frames the door of the two-car garage. Entering the foyer via the front porch, you pass a den on the right that could be used as a home office, a fourth bedroom, or whatever suits. The coat closet on the left is revealed when the front door is closed again.
Moving ahead, you pass a short hallway on the left before stepping into the comfortably large gathering space. The hallway leads to secondary bedrooms, a two-section bathroom, and a fully outfitted utility room with a direct link to the garage.
Natural light spills into the living room through windows that fill most of the rear wall, and more washes in through another wide expanse of glass in the dining room. These two rooms flow into each other, wrap around a covered patio, and are open to the kitchen. The gas fireplace that nestles into one corner of the living room, can serve as a warm and colorful focal point on gray days and long winter nights.
Cabinets, counters and appliances span three sides of a C-shaped kitchen, anchored by a central work island. An eating bar rims the side that bounds the dining room.
The Oakdale’s owners’ suite is well separated from the secondary bedrooms. Entry is through a hallway off of the living room, and the suite’s deep walk-in closet creates a sound buffer. A sliding door offers privacy between the sleeping area and a bathroom with a dual vanity, large shower, and private toilet.
