Jamison blends traditional, modern styling
The Jamison blends traditional and present-day styling in a plan that is at once elegant and informal. Traditional elements include a covered porch, arched windows, and a deck. Bold columns, a cameo window, and planters overflowing with vegetation provide contemporary flavor.
Vaulted ceilings create a sense of openness in the formal living spaces at the core of this plan. Widely spaced columns support plant shelves that delineate the boundaries of the dining room, living room and hallways. A small powder room, tucked into the passageway to the kitchen, is close to everything.
Everyday activities take place in the large, open family room/kitchen. The cooking island is set at a diagonal to create a uniquely shaped triangular kitchen. Having the vegetable sink right across from the range offers increased efficiency in food preparation.
The eating bar adds still more counter space. Utilities and a walk-in pantry are conveniently located between the kitchen and the garage. On the far side of the kitchen, a glass door in the nook leads onto a large deck.
Bedrooms are clustered together at the left. Luxury amenities in the owners' suite include: a large walk-in closet, a private bathroom with two lavs, and an enclosed toilet and shower. Glass block windows brighten the bathing alcove.
Each of the Jamison's secondary bedrooms has direct access to a dual-compartment bathroom. The bedroom closest to the entry porch could be outfitted with French doors and used as a den or office.
