Generous Ryland blends substance, style
Brick veneer gives a look of substance to the Ryland. Decorative supports highlight gable peaks and eaves, while raised brick trim accentuates the graceful curves of the arched entry and window openings. This handsome ranch home could easily be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
Vaulted ceilings increase the sense of spaciousness in the foyer, den, living room and nook. Soft light spills into the foyer through a sidelight and transom window. Double doors on the left open into a den, which could be used as a home office or a fourth bedroom, if needed.
The living room is comfortably large and richly glassed. A gas fireplace nestled into a corner by the window serves as an inviting focal point on dark nights or cloudy days. You can even appreciate the flames while working in the kitchen. On the left, double doors open into a naturally bright sun room and a fully enclosed dining room.
A raised eating bar rims the J-shaped counter that bounds the large kitchen. Storage and counter space are both in abundant supply here. Counters are on three sides plus the central work island; cabinets, too, are on three sides, as well as beneath the surface of the work island and in the corner pantry.
Laundry appliances and a toilet are nearby in a utility room that's equally convenient to the three-car garage.
Bedrooms are lined up along the right side. Amenities in the Ryland's owners' suite include his-and-hers walk-in closets linked to an elegant bathroom with a soaking tub, dual vanity, and enclosed shower and toilet. A pull-down ironing board comes in handy for pressing out those last-minute garment wrinkles.
