Up-to-date Raleigh gets it all together
Informality, formality and privacy -- it's all here in the contemporary Raleigh.
Day-to-day family living takes place in an informal, bright and spacious family room/kitchen. A high vaulted ceiling makes the room seem even larger than it is, and the area's open design allows cooks and members of the clean-up crew to participate fully in family activities. An L-shaped island, which houses the cooktop, sink, dishwasher, and eating bar, is the only separation.
The kitchen also comes complete with a step-in pantry, double oven and an eating nook. French doors that open onto a wide deck make outdoor dining a breeze. From the kitchen, it's only a few steps to a pocket powder room, a full size utility room and a formal dining room with a built-in hutch.
A wall of high windows, each section crowned by half-rounds, illuminates the spacious living room.
Placement of the master suite at the opposite side of the home from the two other bedrooms offers privacy and quiet to its owners. Both sleeping areas feature bathrooms with compartmentalized water closets. Mirrors over the twin lavatories in the adjacent dressing rooms need never be steamy.
In the Raleigh's master bath, there is ample space for a spa or an oversize bathtub, in addition to the shower. And the walk-in closet is positively huge. Double doors in the master bedroom open onto the deck.
