Good looking Maxwell offers great views
How delightful it would be to savor the panoramic view of a beach or lake through the Maxwell's wealth of rear windows. That possibility makes this plan ideal for construction as a beach house, but it would fit just as nicely in a suburban neighborhood.
Multipaned windows and stone bases supporting tapered porch columns give the home a Craftsman look, while lap siding and gable-end cedar shingles lend a country cottage flavor.
This is basically a single-level plan, with a large bonus room upstairs. Two wide windows there offer yet another fine view of the landscape to the rear. Left unfinished, the area provides abundant storage space. Finished, it could be a rainy day play room, bunk area for overflow guests, music rehearsal space, art studio, or you-dream-it.
Vaulted ceilings expand the sense of volume in the foyer, parlor, family room and front bedrooms. The kitchen and dining room share a 10-foot ceiling and are entirely open to the family room, creating an informal living area that is quite large and naturally bright. A corner fireplace, home entertainment center and bookshelves anchor the wall opposite the kitchen.
Next to the kitchen is a large utility room with direct exterior access - an ideal place to slip off muddy or sandy foot gear before entering the rest of the house. The small bathroom there makes a convenient "pit stop" for dashing in from the out-of-doors. The home office is close enough for easy access, but somewhat isolated as well.
Luxuries in the Maxwell's master suite include: a huge walk-in closet, covered patio access, and a two-section private bathroom with soaking tub, oversized shower, private toilet, dual vanity and pull-down ironing board.
