Tall, multipaned windows, garage-door gridding, and custom brick veneer detailing draw eyes to this three-bedroom traditional home plan. It has a large family room at it's core; living room and dining room are up front. An angled passageway lined with storage leads out to a three-car garage with space for a shop.

Handsome Hollyview blends old and new
The Hollyview is a contemporary home with a traditional flavor. Brick veneer wainscoting and columns combine with multipaned windows to provide the classical flair, while the hipped roof lines and single-level floor plan have a more modern look.
Natural light washes into the foyer through sidelights and a wide transom. Formal rooms are up front. On the right of the foyer, a cased opening leads into the dining room. On the foyer's left, double doors swing in to access a high-ceilinged living room, brightened and expanded by a wide windowed bay at the front.
Day-to-day living spaces are at the rear, where the kitchen and family room flow together, yet have some separation. Windows fill most of the family room's back wall, and a gas fireplace nestles into the left rear corner. The nook is brighter still. Two large panes of glass that reach almost from floor to ceiling, are next to an atrium door that provides access to a covered and vaulted patio.
A long work island is at the center of a kitchen with cupboards and counters on two sides. Its built-in cook top is conveniently placed, opposite the sink and dishwasher. A large, walk-in pantry is at one end of one counter, and a built-in desk with shelves is at the far end.
The Hollyview's owners' suite is just around the corner from the pantry. A mud hall, complete with a bench, shelves and storage, links with the three-car garage. Owners' suite bathroom features include a spa tub, dual vanity and separately enclosed shower and toilet.
Utilities, two more bedrooms and a bathroom are on the opposite side of the house.
