Ample Evansville is unique blend of style
In some respects, the Evansville looks like an old-fashioned country farm house. The wide, wrap-around front porch certainly has that flavor. But the left side, with its wide bay windows and gazebo-shaped roof, puts this plan in a class by itself. The small gabled balcony at the second floor stair landing is also unique.
Inside the roomy 2,800-square-foot home, you'll find a broad spectrum of living environments. The formal spaces -- living room and dining room -- are on the left, separated by a column-flanked passageway. The den at the front could serve as a home office, guest room or what have you.
Informal living spaces span the entire rear portion of the main floor, creating a huge, entirely open area. Family members will spend most of their together time here, cooking in the big kitchen, lingering over steaming cups in the nook, or relaxing in the family room. French doors open onto the patio, so it's easy to move meals outside when the weather permits.
The utility room, tucked between kitchen and garage, has a long folding counter and a deep sink. A powder room, right smack dab in the center of the house, is close to everything.
Graceful arched windows add a touch of elegance to a master suite with his-and-hers closets. Luxuries in the Evansville's master bathroom include: an oversized shower, spa tub, twin vanities and a private toilet. Two of the other bedrooms have walk-in closets, and there's walk-in storage at the top of the stairs as well.
