Great room, kitchen at heart of Brisbane
Bright, lofty and spacious, a vaulted great room stretches across the back of the Brisbane. This area provides a comfortable and inviting environment for everyday family living, and accommodates large get togethers as well. Sliding glass doors open onto a screened porch, expanding living (and entertainment) space when needed.
Family members and guests naturally gravitate to the long conversation bar that divides the dining area from the walk through kitchen. Placement of the kitchen sink in the conversation bar also ensures that people preparing food or dealing with the aftermath needn't feel left out.
Two arched windows add grace to the front facade. The smaller of the two is a transom window over the front door. Inside, this window brightens a high ceilinged entryway with a roomy coat closet. The larger window adds elegance to the vaulted master suite.
Other features in the master suite include a large walk in closet and a dual compartment private bathroom. His and hers vanities are tucked in alcoves on opposite sides of the outer section, well away from the steam of the shower and oversized tub. French doors open into a room across the entryway, which could serve as a media room, or home office.
Two other bedrooms share a bath with combination tub and shower. The Brisbane also has a generous utility room, complete with cupboards, counters and a deep sink. It is equally convenient to both the kitchen and the garage.
