Spacious feeling Quincy is simple, compact
Relatively simple in its layout, the Quincy is a compact home designed to fit on a narrow city lot. But simple, here, doesn't mean mundane. Many of the Quincy's features are as appealing to first time home buyers as they are to retirement couples.
Vaulted ceilings, for instance, expand the sense of spaciousness in both the living room and dining room. Even the foyer has a lofty 10 foot ceiling and a transom window over the front door.
A waist high wall, with columns at either end, divides the dining room from the living room. The space between the columns is bridged by a high shelf. Draped with hanging plants, it could become a living screen of greenery separating the busyness of the dining room from the relaxing calm of the living room. A high arch, stacked with multi paned windows, fills most of the boxed front wall.
And the dining room is only one of many places to eat. A window bright eating bay expands the combination kitchen/family room, and an eating bar is handy for snacks and meals on the run. The screened patio off the family room provides an alternative atmosphere in which to enjoy an evening meal.
The Quincy's master suite features a large walk in closet, a spa tub with glass block wall, and a separately enclosed water closet and shower. Access to the spacious patio is also available from this suite.
Additional features include a bathroom near the pantry that can be entered from either the bedroom wing or the family room. An inner door provides added privacy for the toilet and tub. A small utility room is tucked in the passageway between the garage and house.
