High ceilings abound in country-style Trinity
High and vaulted ceilings throughout give a sense of airy openness to the Trinity, a midsize country-style home with four roomy bedrooms. Family living spaces, along with a generously sized owners' suite, are downstairs. The other three bedrooms are on the upper level.
From the second floor bridge, you can overlook both the dining room and the family room. The apex of the vaulted ceiling that spans dining room, entry and family room, is overhead, parallel to the bridge.
Multipaned windows brighten the dining room, and a wide bay expands the living room. Both rooms look out across a nostalgic shaded porch that wraps around to the right. But most of the main floor is devoted to the kind of spaces families use day to day -- a large family room, L-shaped kitchen and bayed nook.
This comfortable area has a centrally located wood stove, and is wide open. Nothing more than an angled island with a raised eating bar breaks up the space. A built-in cooktop makes it easy to serve soups and other hot edibles directly to waiting eaters. The step-in pantry provides additional storage space. Utilities and a small bathroom are close by, equally convenient to the garage.
Amenities in the owners' suite include a large walk-in closet, oversized shower, spa tub and twin vanities. All of the Trinity's upstairs bedrooms are spacious, but the room overlooking the street is the one the kids will fight over. The half-round window crowning its lower windows is similar to the one in the front door, and adds a touch of elegance to the bedroom.
