Practical Fernridge provides plenty of family living space
The Fernridge is a good-sized, four bedroom home designed with large, bright gathering spaces clustered together at the center, and bedrooms on both sides. The three-car garage has a workbench and ample storage space.
Living room and dining room flank the entry. Columns are all that define the boundaries of these otherwise open spaces. The living room, with its wide bay window and 11-foot ceiling, is elegant and dramatic.
For everyday living, the family gravitates to the comfortable kitchen and family room at the rear. Windows line most of the back wall, naturally illuminating this cheery open space. The bayed nook is sunniest of all, offering an open invitation to linger over newspapers, conversation and coffee. Sliding glass doors open onto a large patio.
Other kitchen features include a large walk-in pantry, central work island with built-in range, plentiful cupboards and counters, and a sink that faces into the family room. The family room has a fireplace, and a small powder room nearby, right smack dab in the center of everything.
The master suite is to the left of these family living areas, and the other three bedrooms are on the opposite side. If you don't like the music the kids are playing, you don't have to hear it.
Amenities in the master suite include a roomy walk-in closet, a spa tub tucked in a glass-block-lined alcove, twin vanities, and a separately enclosed toilet and shower. Sliding glass doors access a small covered patio.
Utilities and a two-section bathroom are close to the Fernridge's secondary bedrooms.
