Mediterranean home spacious, sunny
Deeper than it is wide, the Amherst is a large Mediterranean style home, narrow enough to fit on a 100-foot-wide lot.
Every room is generously sized. Nine-foot-high ceilings on the lower level add to the feeling of spaciousness. Halls and doorways are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair.
Two built-in hutches separate the richly windowed dining room from the entry hall. The living room is just as bright illuminated by windows on two sides.
Windows wrap around three sides of a sunny nook that expands the large, well-equipped kitchen. Conveniences include a walk-in pantry, eating bar, built-in oven, microwave and dishwasher, and a work island with cooktop. The huge utility room has counters, cabinets, a large storage closet (under the stairs) and space for a freezer. This room can also be entered from the three-car garage. Located next to the kitchen, the ample-sized family room provides access onto a wrap-around screened porch.
Luxury features in the master suite include a sitting bay which also leads out onto the screened porch, and an extra-large walk-in closet. The bathroom has two basins, a spa tub brightened by glass blocks, and an oversized shower. The study, accessible from both the sleeping area and the outer hallway, could be used as a nursery. The study also has a sliding door entry onto the patio behind the garage.
Three bedrooms, a bathroom with dual lavatories, and a large storage area are on the second floor of the Amherst.
