Handsome Somerset has sunny kitchen
Dramatic arches draw attention to the Somerset's graceful yet stately entry portico and stacked living room windows. Handsome hipped rooflines add to the street appeal.
A sunny kitchen with a solarium nook is at the heart of the home. Formal rooms are at the front, family room and secondary bedrooms are to the right, and the secluded owners' suite is to the left, well away from family activity areas.
The huge kitchen is richly illuminated by windows and a nearly all-glass solarium nook. Conveniences include a pantry, a work island with cooktop, and built-in appliances. If desired, the wet bar which separates the kitchen from the spacious family room could be a fireplace.
Ten-foot ceilings expand both the living room and the elegant columned foyer. Columns mark the openings to the living room and dining room. A large storage closet and a small bathroom are conveniently close to the front door.
Pampering touches in the owners' suite include a roomy walk-in closet, his-and-hers vanities, a large spa tub, and an oversized shower. Shower and toilet are enclosed for steam containment and added privacy. Sliding doors open onto a wide wrap-around patio, which also leads to a screened porch located off the living room.
The Somerset's two other bedrooms share a bathroom with twin lavatories. If a basement is not included, storage space is expanded in the utility room, next to the garage, as well as in bedroom three and the hallway.
