Ranch-style Grayling a natural for entertaining family living
Families that like to entertain will appreciate the airy spaciousness of the ranch-style Grayling. An expansive, open great room with high, vaulted ceilings fills the center of the home, and a large portion of the rear as well.
Windows line the back wall, bathing the area in light. The bayed nook is brighter still, and more natural light spills in through skylights located between the eating bar and the fireplace. This fireplace is open on two sides, allowing people to enjoy its flames and warmth from almost anywhere in the great room.
In the kitchen, there's ample counter space for two or more cooks to combine culinary efforts. A skylight illuminates the work island, and the stove has work space on both sides. Working at the stove, you can gaze across a long eating bar into the rest of the great room. Storage is generous too, augmented by a walk-in pantry.
Utilities, and a deep sink, are convenient, tucked in a pass-through space that connects the home's interior with a two-car garage. The garage has room for a workbench, and plenty of storage space to boot. A powder room, adjacent to the utility room, is convenient to family living spaces and garage. A central bathroom serves the secondary bedrooms.
Double doors open into the Grayling's elegant master suite. Its bay window could become a cozy window seat, or house a desk or sewing machine. Other amenities include a huge walk-in closet and a luxurious bathroom outfitted with shower, spa, dual basins and private toilet.
