Contemporary Marlowe centers on sunny family room
Gracefully arched trim crowns the Marlowe's porch, window and garage openings, while two stately columns stand sentinel on either side of the porch. This handsome contemporary home could easily be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
A bright and spacious vaulted family room and kitchen are at its heart. The rear is more glass than wall, and two French doors offer patio access. Arch-topped display shelves nestle into the wall opposite the entry to the master suite.
Storage and counter space are both abundant in the large, uniquely shaped kitchen. Standing at the sink, you face into the family room across a long, raised eating and conversation bar. It's in a great location for homework supervision as well as keeping chatty people out from underfoot during food preparation.
Behind two doors on the right are a walk-in pantry and a pass-through utility room that provides direct access to the garage. More natural light spills down through a skylight, and the room comes outfitted with a deep sink, cabinets, and a counter for folding clothes.
Arched openings in the high-ceilinged entry lead into the dining room on the right, and a study on the left, while arched transom windows cap the sets of wide multipaned windows that brighten both rooms. The study has a gas fireplace flanked by shelves, ideal for displaying family mementos, art and photos, or storing books and games.
Amenities in the Marlowe's master suite include direct patio access, a deep walk-in closet naturally illuminated by a sun tube, and a deluxe bathroom.
Secondary bedrooms share a bathroom outfitted with a dual vanity and roomy linen closet.
