Arolee dramatic in front, informal inside
Massive brick pillars support the dramatic front portico that welcomes visitors to the Arolee. Brick detailing, keystones and multiple roof lines combine to draw still more attention to this large, impressive two-story home.
Family living spaces are on the lower level; three bedrooms and a huge bonus room are upstairs.
The lofty two-story entry is so richly glassed you'll rarely need to flick the light switch. Windows fill most of the front wall here and in front of the stairwell. A recessed bench provides a spot for taking off muddy footgear as well as an out-of-sight storage and drying area. A powder room is close to the front door.
Informal living spaces dominate this floor. Only the living room, entered through double doors, is separate. Family room, kitchen and nook are entirely open. Cupboard and counter spaces are abundant in the kitchen, augumented by a large work island with a conversation/eating bar on one side.
A built-in desk nestles into a small alcove next to the sunny nook. Laundry facilities are mere steps away in a separate utility room. Sliders provide pass-through access between the kitchen and living room, while yet another door connects to the three-car garage.
In the family room, windows fill most of the rear wall. Shelving or cabinets flank the fireplace at the far side. A large patio spans the back.
Luxuries in the Arolee's master suite include a huge walk-in closet and a private bathroom with soaking tub, dual vanity and enclosed toilet and shower. Secondary bedrooms share another two-section bathroom.
