Compact Burnett is affordable, efficient
Compact and affordable, the Burnett is a natural for first-time home-buyers, singles, or retirees looking to down-size. It's easy to maintain, offers more than 1100 square feet of living area, and fits neatly on a standard-sized city lot. Multipaned windows and varied rooflines add street appeal.
Family living spaces are on the left, bedrooms on the right. The dining and living areas are completely open, creating a feeling of spaciousness you might not expect to find in such a small home. Sliding glass doors in the dining room open onto a small patio, making it easy to move meals outside when the weather is inviting.
The kitchen has a built-in stove and dishwasher. Utilities nestle in an alcove that can be hidden from view behind folding doors. The close proximity allows you to tend to laundry while you're already in the kitchen dealing with meal preparation or clean-up. Direct access to the garage lets you unload groceries in safety and out of the weather.
Features in the master suite are minimal. It has a walk-in closet and a private bath with a shower and linen closet. Parents of babies and young children will appreciate having the other two bedrooms close by, well within earshot. These secondary bedrooms share a slightly larger bathroom with a tub. Multipaned windows add charm, and the boxed out spaces in front of them could easily be fitted with window seats.
With all of the rooms on one level, the Burnett could be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
