Family-style Spencer has wide open spaces
Brick veneer and a flat keystone arch give a look of timeless permanence to the traditional Spencer. This mid-size family home has a three-car garage and boasts four large, interconnected gathering spaces, ideal for families that enjoy entertaining.
As soon as you step into the entry, all four options open up to you. Wide openings on the right and left lead into the living and dining rooms. Past those, veering right brings you to the family room, while angling left puts you in the kitchen.
In the living room, French doors open into a den that could serve as a home office. Those doors also offer access to the utility room, a two-section bathroom, and secondary bedrooms. In the dining room, another wide opening leads into a hallway and on to the kitchen.
A gas fireplace serves as a focal point in the Spencer's spacious family room, especially on dark days and long nights when its warmth and colorful flames are most welcome. When the sky is bright, light washes in through tall, double-hung windows on both sides of the hearth. A wide opening links the family room to the nook, where sliding French doors offer access to a partially covered and vaulted patio.
The kitchen island is larger than most. A raised eating counter runs along one side, and a cook top is opposite. Cabinets and counters are in abundant supply, including a roomy, walk-in pantry. More cupboards and a long counter span one wall of the nook.
Situated on the opposite side of the house from the secondary bedrooms, the luxurious master suite serves as an adult retreat, as well as sleeping quarters.
