Generous Shelburn wrapped in veranda
The first thing you notice about the Shelburn is the porch. It spans the entire front and right side of this richly windowed country-style home, creating a veranda that stretches all the way from the three-car garage to the wide rear deck.
The spacious plan boasts almost 3,800 square feet of living area, including a large home office just inside the front door. Ceilings throughout are either nine foot, as in the parlor, office and master suite, or vaulted. The family room and entry are open to the second floor, overlooked by a railed bridge and loft/library.
Upstairs, the two front-facing bedrooms are also vaulted. Two bedrooms share a bathroom with a tub. The third has its own private bath with a shower, making it ideal for use as a guest room.
The elegant master suite is on the main floor. French doors provide entry to a bayed sitting room with a fireplace. Other luxuries include: a huge walk-in closet, French doors that open onto the deck, and a bathroom with a spa tub and separate shower.
But most of the time, family members will naturally gravitate to the combined family room/dining room/kitchen. Windows on two sides make this an exceptionally bright space and there's plenty of room to spread out. Display shelves, a fireplace and an entertainment center fill one wall, while a long raised eating bar provides a natural separation for the kitchen.
Kitchen features in the Shelburn include: a large butcher block work island, roomy walk-in pantry, built-in oven and microwave, and convenient utilities hidden behind a pocket door.
