Ambridge a cozy bungalow
Looking at the Ambridge puts the viewer in mind of simpler times. More than anything, it's probably the full front porch, accented by slender wooden handrails and columns. If a porch swing suits your fancy, this is the place for it.
The plan's symmetrical design and central dormer also add to the Craftsman bungalow effect. But this midsize home is larger than it looks from the front. Indoor living space comes close to 1,800 square feet, not including the larger bonus room over the garage.
Family gathering areas fill the main floor, circling around a central stairway. Parlor and dining room are on the right, family room and kitchen on the left. Storage closets, utilities and a small powder room are in the middle, easily accessed from every direction.
Dining room and living room flow together, minimally bounded by slender wall sections that could be joined by an arch or exposed beam, if desired. The fireplace provides warmth and color when skies are dark.
An eating bar with overhead cabinets is all that separates the kitchen and family room. Working in the kitchen, you are never isolated. From here you can keep tabs on activities in the family room, front yard, covered patio and front porch. Sliders brighten the family room and provide access to a covered patio.
Upstairs, the Ambridge's master suite boasts two good-sized walk-in closets, and a private bathroom with dual vanities. The front bedroom is smaller but brighter than bedroom two.
Access to the large bonus room is through a hallway just past the bathroom, or via a second staircase entered through the garage.
