A wealth of gables caps this country-style home, while its welcoming front porch spans two sides. Light spilling in through windows and skylights adds to the bright, open feeling in the vaulted family room and C-shaped kitchen. A study, dining room and living room are also on the main floor, along with the spacious owners’ suite.

Perky gables cap the Hearthstone, a country-style home with a wide front porch that rambles on around most of one side. This plan offers just over 2,700 square feet inside, along with an abundance of exterior living space on the porch and rear deck.
The entry has a lofty two-story ceiling. High windows brighten the stairway, and you can overlook the entry from the second-floor landing. Both of the bedrooms on this level have walk-in closets, and a wide bay window expands one of the rooms.
On the ground floor, the vaulted family room and kitchen flow together, separated only by a long eating bar. This spacious area is rich in windows and skylights, giving it a bright, open feeling. French doors near the fireplace open on a deck that's large enough to accommodate a spa.
The C-shaped kitchen has a garden window and provides abundant storage and counter space, including a large walk-in pantry. Utilities are close by, in a pass-through that connects to a two-car garage deep enough for storage and a workbench.
In the owners’ suite, French doors offer direct deck access. A skylight brightens a sumptuous owners’ bathroom, outfitted with a soaking tub or spa, oversized shower, two basins, and huge walk-in closet.
There are three more rooms on the Hearthstone’s main floor. The dining room connects to the family room, but is well-separated. The living room has a window seat in the large bay window. The study nearby offers flexibility as a guest room, library, or you-name-it.
