Oakheart blends country, contemporary
The Oakheart is a harmonious blend of country and contemporary. Multiple roof lines, a half-round window and a stepped chimney cap provide contemporary touches, while the oval glass in the door and the wrap-around porch exude a homey, country flavor.
Inside, the layout is more contemporary than old-fashioned. The living room, left of the foyer, is far brighter than a traditional parlor. A wide window bay expands this room, and more light spills in through a side window.
The great room ceiling is a full two stories high. Windows flank the broad-hearthed masonry fireplace, and double columns grace both sides of the arch leading into the vaulted, skylit dining room. Sliders at the rear open onto a patio that's also accessible from the richly glassed, high-ceilinged, octagonal nook.
In the kitchen, the sink, stove and refrigerator cluster in an efficient triangle. The work island adds counter space, and a small powder room is just around the corner. Storage is tucked under the stairway, and two more closets are across the hall.
Laundry appliances are mere steps away, in a utility room that connects with the three-car garage. This space is ideal for dealing with muddy paws and human foot gear.
Amenities in the Oakheart vaulted master suite include skylights, a sitting bay, covered patio, huge walk-in closet, and a bathroom with dual vanity, spa tub and separate shower.
At the top of the stairs is a large loft with a built-in desk and shelves. Two bedrooms share one bathroom. The vaulted front bedroom, equipped with its own private bathroom, could be used as a guest room.
