Mid-sized Merida is full of light, space
Twin gables, dormers, arched windows and an arched stucco colonnade give a Mediterranean flavor to the Merida, a mid size home that offers plenty of private living space.
French doors open into a fully enclosed formal parlor. This uniquely shaped room has an arched window overhead, is brightened by bay windows and expanded by a vaulted ceiling. The entryway, too, is vaulted and bathed in natural light from a second high arched window. Vaulted ceilings also expand the sense of spaciousness in the master suite and family room.
The sumptuous master suite shares the quiet side of the home with the parlor. Bathrooms and a curved staircase serve as buffers, blocking the sounds of active family living emanating from the family room. Features include screened porch access, a large walk in closet, and a second vanity outside the bathroom.
An eating nook is on one side of the U shaped kitchen and a large family room is on the other. The formal dining room is but a few steps away. Range and oven are built into an eating bar, convenient for service to all three eating areas. The step in pantry is tucked into a large utility room that features a laundry chute.
Storage space is abundant in this plan. It has an entry closet, another closet tucked under the stairs and more storage at the second floor landing. Overhead storage can also be created in the two car garage.
The two upstairs bedrooms in the Merida share a two section bathroom. The twin basin vanity will be especially appreciated if teens share this space.
