Juniper blends indoor/outdoor livingThe Juniper’s low-pitched hipped roof, widely overhanging eaves and squared porch column are distinctive Prairie home features. Frank Lloyd Wright created this style, one of the few indigenous American home architecture styles. Families that enjoy an easy mix of indoor and outdoor living will find much to appreciate in the Juniper. Both the great room and the dining room offer double-door access to the rambling covered patio that wraps across the rear and around the left side. The great room even has two such door sets, one opening to the side patio and the other to the rear. Entering via the high-ceilinged covered porch, you step into a long, equally lofty foyer, brightened by a French door and sidelights. The passageway flows past an opening to the bedroom wing before spilling out into the great room. Natural light washes into the great room through glass that fills more than half of the wall space. A mess-free gas fireplace provides color and warmth when skies are dark. Only a one-foot drop in ceiling height marks the juncture of the great room and dining area. Additional light spills into the dining room through twin skylights. A flush eating bar rims the island that provides partial separation from the kitchen. Counters, cabinets and appliances range along two kitchen walls. A pantry cabinet lines the passageway that leads to the garage and a sky-lit utility room with a desk. This spot is ideal for sewing or managing household finances. Front bedrooms are well isolated from the Juniper’s owners’ suite. These could be used as a den, guest room, home office, or whatever suits. Suite amenities include a totally private toilet, double vanity, step-in shower, and roomy walk-in closet.
