Shelton fits features into small package
Measuring in at just a little over 1,600 square feet, the Shelton is smaller than most four bedroom homes. Designed to fit on a small lot and relatively inexpensive to build, this floorplan still includes many features modern home buyers want, such as a vaulted master suite with private bath, vaulted great room/kitchen combination and indoor utility.
The kitchen and dining room are both naturally illuminated by wide windows that face the street. Range and oven are built into a central work island which faces into the great room.
If the designers had placed a wall between the kitchen and great room, both spaces would seem cramped. Fortunately they didn't. They chose instead to let the work island provide partial separation, thus creating a wide open feeling. French doors at the back of the room open onto a small patio or deck.
The Shelton's master suite has a large walk in closet and a vanity with a mirror that never gets steamy, due to its location in the dressing area outside the water closet. The three other bedrooms share another similarly designed bathroom.
Utilities are tucked into a passageway between the bedrooms and the garage. A linen and storage closet are in the hallway, conveniently close to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
