Comfortable space fills compact design
Custom brick work and arched openings on the porch and front windows give curb appeal to the Hillsboro, a three-bedroom home with 1,700 square feet of living space and a huge garage. This no-frills home packs everything needed for comfortable living into a compact design.
It's unusual to find such a large garage in a home this size, but it's not all that unusual to need so much space. The garage can shelter three cars, or two cars and a boat or RV. And you still have space left over for a workbench and storage.
Wide multipaned windows fill most of the front-facing living room wall, creating a naturally bright space. At the rear of the room, a wide arched opening leads into the dining room.
The kitchen is conveniently located between the dining room and family room. Counters on three sides provide space for two or three cooks to combine culinary efforts. Utilities and a pantry are but steps away.
A long eating bar, with space enough for five or six stools, marks the boundary between family room and kitchen. When the weather turns warm, it's easy to move meals out to the patio through the sliding glass doors. During the chilly months, a fireplace at the far end of the room serves as a focal point.
Bedrooms cluster together on the right. Master suite amenities include twin basins, an oversized shower and a large walk-in closet, but bedroom three has a boxed-out bay that could be built as a cozy window seat.
