Contemporary Haverford is bright, open
Turned brick accents the Haverford's lofty keystone arch, giving a classic look to a home that is actually quite contemporary. Similar graceful arches crown two of the many windows that sparkle across the front facade.
Families that enjoy entertaining will find much to appreciate in this spacious floor plan. First of all, natural light is abundant throughout, especially in the gathering spaces. Secondly, all of the gathering spaces are open to each other.
Muted light spills into the high-ceilinged foyer through sidelights and an arched transom. Then the foyer opens out into a large living room with an even higher vaulted ceiling. Windows fill most of the living room's rear wall, and an arched clerestory window caps the lower panes of glass. Sunlight washes into the nook on three sides.
Dining room, living room, kitchen and nook all flow one into the other with few impediments. A half wall in front of the sink bar marks the boundary between the kitchen and living room, and a gas fireplace is seated at the window corner where the kitchen, nook and living room come together.
A guest suite, complete with private bathroom, has its own wing off to the right. This is particularly handy for guests that come for extended stays.
Laundry appliances are near the kitchen in a large passthrough utility room that connects to the garage. This space also doubles as a mud room for wiping dog paws, or cleaning muddy foot gear.
The Haverford's master suite, office and another bedroom cluster together on the left. Master suite amenities include a large walk-in closet plus a luxurious bathroom with a spa tub, walk-in shower, dual vanity and private toilet.
