Compact Lamar has open, efficient, adaptable design
Brick veneer gives a look of solid permanence to the Lamar, a compact home with a spacious great room at its heart. An arched window filled with glass blocks adds a unique dash of grace and charm to the front facade.
This low-maintenance home is ideal for young families, empty nesters and singles. Its one-level layout also makes it easily adaptable for wheelchair accessibility.
Entering, you step into a vaulted entry with a coat closet to the right, kitchen/dining room access on the left. A pocket door slides closed to conceal the cooking and dining area.
The great room, too, is vaulted, and open to the kitchen. At waist level, a peninsular counter marks the boundary. Overhead, a high plant or display shelf spans the juncture, where the vaulted ceiling transitions to an eight-foot-high kitchen ceiling.
Sliding glass doors at the rear open into a wide screened porch, ideal for outdoor dining. Potted plants thrive in this sunny space, and it's a great place to sleep on summer nights when the air inside is too hot.
The Lamar's kitchen/dining room is surprisingly spacious. Plenty of room here for family and friends to hang around and chat with the cooks or clean-up crew. Utilities are handy, but out of sight, tucked in a passthrough space that connects with the garage. Groceries can be unloaded safely and conveniently, moving directly from garage to kitchen.
Master suite amenities include: twin linen closets and a large walk-in closet. Soft light filters into the bathroom through glass blocks. Secondary bedrooms, or a bedroom and a study, share a bathroom on the opposite side of the house.
