Vaulted ceilings add to the expansive sense of spaciousness in this traditional single-level home. The entry and media/study (or home office) are vaulted, along with the great room, dining area and one of the bedrooms. Raised eating and conversation bars rim the spacious kitchen, which is open to the great room. A gas fireplace nestles into a corner at the rear.

Spaciousness defines the Springwood
The Springwood's open and relaxing ambiance begins before you even step inside. For starters, the covered porch of this traditional ranch-style home measures in at a lofty 11 feet high. Inside, the expansive vaulted entry is awash in natural light that filters in through sidelights, a transom and a window grid in the upper section of the door. And that's just the beginning.
Vaulted ceilings are generously supplied throughout. Double doors on the left side of the entry, for example, open into a vaulted room that could be a study, home office, or media room. And at the far end of the entry hall, you step into a spacious great room, which is also vaulted.
A gas fireplace nestles into one corner, near windows that fill more than half of the rear wall. One in a trio of tall framed-glass panes opens out onto a partially covered patio, which could be screened.
The kitchen, with a 9-foot-high ceiling, is also a part of the great room. Standing at the sink or its long counter, you can keep a running tally of goings-on in the great room, patio and beyond. At the same time, you can chat with family or friends ranged along the lengthy eating and conversation bars. Appliances are built in, and a roomy walk-in pantry nestles into one corner.
An arched passageway leads into the left wing, which houses the deluxe owners' suite plus a pass-through utility room that links with the Springwood's 3-car garage. A coffered ceiling adds a touch of elegance to the owners' suite, which has its own private access to the rear patio. Two more bedrooms and a bathroom fill a wing on the opposite side of the home.
