Springbrook feels spacious throughout
Shake-textured siding lends its eye-catching appeal to the front façade of this updated Craftsman-style cottage. Basically, the Springbrook is a single-level home. But it does have a skylit bonus room over the garage, which could be used as an artist’s studio, music rehearsal space, writer's retreat, workout room, or whatever suits.
An iron railing rims a front porch wide enough to accommodate a porch swing or other outdoor furniture. Inside, natural light spills in through sidelights on both sides of the front door.
Vaulted ceilings expand the sense of spaciousness in the foyer, along with many other rooms. The open generous space is much like one would see in a Cape Cod style houseplan. The vaulted den to the right of the foyer is in an ideal location for a home office. Secondary bedrooms and the main bathroom are to the left. The bedroom closest to the street is vaulted.
Windows and a corner fireplace fill most of the rear wall in the vaulted living room, which is fully open to a richly glassed dining room with a flat ceiling. Glass doors at the juncture of the two spaces slide open to access a wide covered patio.
From the kitchen, cooks can supervise homework or chat with people seated along the raised eating bar. The pass-through laundry room that links with the two-car garage is conveniently close, as is a deep pantry. Pocket doors access both spaces.
Shelves fill the slender cabinet nestled into an alcove at the opening of the passageway to the Springbrook's owners' suite. The door to the suite is just a few steps further down the hall. Luxury amenities include: a roomy walk-in closet, deep soaking tub and double vanity. The toilet and shower are separately enclosed for added privacy and steam containment.
