Heartland a family friend
The Heartland's porch and wide front steps create such an open friendly look that no welcome mat is needed. Inside, a variety of living environments range from the quiet and formal to the active and relaxed. Families who like to entertain will find plenty of space to do it here.
Dormer windows brighten the library, the two-story-high foyer, and the bay-windowed parlor, augmenting the muted light that filters in from the covered porch. The library and parlor have arched openings and elegant columned entrances. Columns flank the openings to the dining room and family room as well. A small powder room is at the center, close to everything.
Family activity spaces are at the rear, well away from the formal rooms. The family room has a fireplace and is spacious enough to accommodate an entertainment center and an assortment of comfortable couches and chairs. French doors open onto a large deck. A pass-through utility room is accessible from the family room and the garage. The large country kitchen features a sunny nook, walk-in pantry and cooktop work island.
Columns in the sumptuous owners' suite mark the entrance to the luxurious bathroom. Features include a huge walk-in closet, enclosed toilet and shower, an oversized tub illuminated by glass blocks, and a dual vanity.
Upstairs, two bedrooms and a loft share a bathroom with twin lavs. Outfitted as a library with a couple of easy chairs, the Heartland's loft offers a welcome retreat from the activities below.
