A peaceful retreat awaits in Wateridge
In the Wateridge, the master suite is so well-isolated from the busier parts of the house that it serves as a quiet adult retreat.
The hustle and bustle of active family living is as far away as it can get, relegated to the family kitchen and secondary bedrooms on the far side of the home. Formal rooms at the center provide further sound buffering.
Master suite amenities include a huge walk-in closet, a planter just outside the corner window, and a rambling two-section bathroom. A pocket door slides closed to contain shower steam and provide privacy. In the outer section, two vanities and a garden tub are suffused with soft natural light that filters in through glass blocks.
A spacious family room/kitchen is on the far side of the house, brightened by large windows and warmed by a cozy fireplace. There's plenty of room here for couches, a desk, and a home entertainment center, or what have you. The cooktop is seated in a long eating bar with a roomy pantry at one end. Oven, sink and refrigerator are close together, eliminating wasted steps.
French doors in the dining room open onto a wide deck, and large multipaned windows in the living room fill most of the front wall.
Storage and work space are ample. A large linen closet serves the secondary bedrooms and another dual-compartment bathroom. There's also a wide coat closet just off the high-ceilinged entry.
The Wateridge's laundry room, located in a pass-through space to the garage, comes outfitted with a folding counter and deep sink.
