Family home has spacious great room
Family living is at the heart of the Anton, a compact home with two large interconnected family living areas at its core.
You get a sense of spaciousness as soon as you step inside, despite the fact that there's just under 1,500 square feet of living space. This plan is well-suited to the needs of singles, empty nesters, and young families buying their first home. With minor modifications it could be wheelchair accessible.
Two sets of twin posts are all that divides the living room from the entry hall and the family room. Otherwise this expansive central space is totally open. The U-shaped kitchen, off to the left, is also open to the family room but at the same time it is completely out of view of the living room.
Standing at the kitchen sink, you can gaze out a window that faces onto a patio. Appliances are built in and with counters on three sides, the kitchen offers plenty of elbow room. Sliders in the family room open into a screened porch, ideal for outdoor dining.
The master suite has a huge walk-in closet with a second vanity outside the bathroom. A door in the bathroom provides direct access to the backyard. This feature becomes particularly important if there's a pool or Jacuzzi in the backyard, but it's also handy for cleaning up after doing yard work.
Utilities are tucked in a pass-through space between the Anton's secondary bedrooms and the garage.
