Stately Barstow never feels crowded
High ceilings in most of the rooms add to the sense of spaciousness in the Barstow, a large home with four family living areas at its core. These rooms are so generously sized that families who like to entertain can invite all their friends over and still not feel crowded.
Arched windows, decorative brickwork and steeply pitched roof lines give the exterior a neo-French flavor. Massive columns supporting the entry porch add stateliness. Entering through double doors, you step into a wide foyer. The formal dining room is on the right, and a living room with fireplace is on the left.
Informal gathering spaces are at the rear. The game room could easily accommodate a ping pong or pool table and the combination kitchen/family room is even larger. Nothing more than a large work island breaks up the space.
Working in the kitchen, you can take part in conversations, keep an eye on the kids, enjoy the flames in the corner fireplace, or gaze out French doors to the patio. A step-in pantry augments the already ample storage space, and utilities are mere steps away, tucked in a pass-through space that connects to the three-car garage.
French doors open into the Barstow's luxurious master suite, outfitted with his-'n'-hers walk-in closets. Amenities in the master bath include twin basins, spa tub, shower, and private water closet. The vaulted guest room also has a private bathroom, complete with shower.
The other two bedrooms share a two-section bathroom.
