Contemporary Georgian Classic
The Myersdale is a contemporary home with a nostalgic Georgian flavor. Classic columns with an arched brick opening highlight and support an impressive entry, where two wide sidelights flank a door crowned by a half-round sunburst transom.
A partially vaulted hexagonal great room is at the core of this home. Wings extend to the right and left, then forward, creating a recessed entry courtyard effect. Doors on the three-car garage face the golf cart garage instead of the street.
Passing through the vaulted porch, you step into a partially vaulted entry. The front half of the hexagon comprises the kitchen, utility room, and a storage closet tucked under the stairs to the loft. These are under a spacious nine-foot ceiling.
Vaulting expands the volume in the great rooms naturally bright rear. Six wedge-shaped ceiling segments slope dramatically upward to join points at a central apex, and the three rear sections are a virtual wall of multipaned windows. A home entertainment center and woodstove nestle into junctures on both sides of the central section. Here, a set of palladian windows over sliding French doors open out onto a vaulted covered patio.
Two peninsular counters nearly encircle the interestingly angled kitchen. Both counters are open to the great room. The right counter is longer and rimmed by a raised eating bar. Standing at the sink, you can chat with family or friends seated at the counter, or gaze across the great room to the patio and beyond.
A home office and owners' suite fill the Myersdale's left wing. Sliders in the bedroom access the rear, where a relaxing spa could be installed. The walk-in closet is deep. Bathroom features include: a toilet, walk-in shower, spa tub, and dual lav.
Two more bedrooms, a bathroom, and a link to the garage are in the right wing.
