Ranch home features garden ambiance
Imagine an arched trellis, cascading with trailing plants. That's what you see on entering the contemporary ranch style Bainbridge.
One of the home's most unique features is the wide skylit grid of overhead plant shelves that marks the boundary between the living room and dining room. Both of these formal rooms are large, richly windowed and have vaulted ceilings. Leaving the bright air space open over the plant shelves helps preserve the sense of spaciousness.
And the bower of greenery serves yet another function, marking the passageway to the secluded owners' suite. Having the living room and dining room as buffers ensures that this adult retreat will be the quietest area of the home.
French doors in the large sleeping/sitting room open onto the deck, and from the front windows you can gaze into a landscaped alcove, visible from the living room as well. Other amenities include a generous walk in closet, enclosed water closet and shower, and double basins. Unlike many mid size homes, this master bathroom doesn't include an oversized tub, freeing that space for other uses.
Children's quarters and utilities are at the opposite end of the house, where a dual compartment bathroom serves the two bedrooms. The comfortable utility room comes complete with counters and a deep sink. The library/den could be converted to a fourth bedroom by eliminating the French doors and adding a door facing the children's wing.
Family living takes place in the rear wing, another spacious vaulted area. Here, too, a plant shelf provides color and definition this time between the kitchen and a sunny nook with French doors that open onto the deck. Kitchen features in the Bainbridge include a pantry, a garden window, and a long eating bar with built in cooktop.
