Willcox a modern home with classic look
Brick veneer and keystone arches give a classic look to the Willcox, but inside it is a truly contemporary home. Gathering spaces are not separated by walls, as they are in traditional dwellings, and vaulted ceilings in the core rooms add to the sense of spaciousness.
With the exception of the skylit recreation room over the garage, it's a single-level dwelling that could be made wheelchair accessible. The recreation room has a half bath, storage closet, narrow window, and two large skylights. It can be outfitted as a separate playroom for the kids, or a secluded workspace for a writer or anyone else who enjoys retreating from the normal hustle and bustle of everyday home life.
The large, open gathering space that fills the core comprises a vaulted living room, dining room and kitchen. Abundant natural light washes in through wide windows, front and rear.
The living room's gas fireplace offers mess-free, stress-free warmth, and colorful flames. Its simple to fire up on chilly days or when darkness falls. Wide cabinetry, designed to house a home entertainment center, fills the space between the fireplace and the rear wall.
A long, three-sectioned eating bar is all that stands between the kitchen and the rest of the gathering space. The Willcox's pantry is exceptionally roomy, as is the nearby utility room. The latter is a pass-through space that links with the garage, and makes an ideal mudroom to boot.
The plush owners' suite fills the right side of the home; secondary bedrooms are on the left, where they share the main bathroom. Owners suite amenities include: a spa tub, dual vanity, deep walk-in closet, and separately enclosed shower and toilet.
