Handsome home has room for everything
Think of something you want in a home and you'll probably find it in the Heritage, a stately Tudor plan with a historic European flavor. With 3,800 square feet of floor space, it's easy to fit everything in.
This isn't a sprawling, haphazard design. Similar functions are grouped together in a way that makes sense. On the lower level, eating areas and utilities are on the right, and quiet areas, including the master suite, are on the left. The formal rooms living room and dining room are at the front, just where you'd expect them to be, flanking the vaulted foyer. The family room, at the far end of a vaulted ceiling linked to the foyer, is at the back.
Three bedrooms and a loft are upstairs. A bridge at the second floor landing joins the two left bedrooms with the guest room and loft at the right. From the bridge you can watch activities in the family room or check on recent arrivals in the foyer. The loft, too, overlooks the foyer, and allows appreciation of greenery on the plant shelf atop the entry closet below.
Features in the large country kitchen include a cooktop work island, walk in pantry, built in desk, trash compactor, microwave, ovens and dishwasher, and a long eating bar. French doors in the sun bright nook open onto the deck. A buffet with a food warmer lines one side of the short passageway between the kitchen and the elegant dining room.
The Heritage's master suite is a spacious world all its own, entered through French doors off the family room. Another set opens onto the deck. Luxury amenities include a bay window sitting area, a fireplace open on two sides, and a walk in closet fit for royalty.
The master bath is suitably elegant, with an enclosed water closet, twin vanities, and a sumptuous spa surrounded by glass blocks. The library/study could easily be converted to a private office by eliminating the hall access.
