Warmth radiates Country-style Olympia
A wealth of skylights brightens the family living spaces in the Olympia, a comfortable country-style home with three bedrooms and a bonus room upstairs.
This is a totally informal plan. On the ground floor, the powder room and utility room are the only enclosed spaces. Everything else is open. One function flows naturally into another, and a huge kitchen is at the heart. The kitchen is so bright, you'll rarely need artificial illumination during the day. Light washes in through skylights and windows in the bayed eating nook.
Work and storage space in the kitchen are plentiful. Counters are on three sides, and there's a work island, a pantry and an eating bar. Two narrow walls provide a small measure of separation between the kitchen and the rest of the great room, but most of the long, angled counter is open. Cabinets cap the section adjacent to the dining room, visually separating the two spaces somewhat but still allowing use as a pass-through and a buffet.
Standing in the vaulted great room, you have a choice of vistas in three directions. You can gaze out front-facing windows, rear-facing French doors, or side windows that flank the fireplace.
Upstairs, the master suite has a walk-in closet, another closet, two basins, a shower and a small deck. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom, and a deep, unfinished bonus room is above the garage.
The garage is roomy enough for a workbench and storage space.
