Up-to-date Bennett boasts linked gathering spaces
The Bennett is a midsize contemporary plan with the possibility of four bedrooms, or three and a den or home office. Stone veneer wainscoting with raised stone caps and trim provides textural variety, and gentle arches add to the visual appeal.
Families who enjoy home entertaining will appreciate the large, linked gathering spaces that run down the center. And this home is easily adaptable for wheelchair accessibility.
Ceiling variations help mark the boundaries between gathering spaces. The living and family rooms are vaulted, with central peaks that slope down to the sides. Sandwiched between them is the dining room, with a 10-to-11-foot tray ceiling. Graceful arched openings lead out of the dining room, into the family room. Another set feeds into the master suite on the right, and the secondary bedroom wing on the left.
Kitchen counters and cupboards are generously supplied. In addition to lining two walls, work and/or storage space is available in the roomy walk-in pantry and long angular work island. The naturally bright eating nook has more glass than solid walls, and a vaulted ceiling expands the sense of spaciousness.
The Bennett's master suite serves as a quiet adult retreat. The sleeping/sitting area is large, and opens onto a small covered patio that could be enclosed for privacy. Other amenities include: a huge walk-in closet, separately enclosed water closet and shower, deep soaking tub, and dual vanity.
Double doors in the foyer open into the room best suited for a den or home office. In the secondary bedroom wing, a skylit octagonal hallway provides access to two more bedrooms and their shared bathroom, an odd-shaped utility room, and the three-car garage.
