Bright Augusta has large living area
The bright, breezy Augusta is a contemporary Mediterranean-style plan with two large living areas, one formal and the other informal. It has 9-foot ceilings throughout the first floor, plus vaulted living and dining rooms.
This mid-size plan also has a den adjacent to the front entrance, an ideal location for a home office. It could be built with an exterior door to provide direct access from the porch, or outfitted as a library or guest bedroom.
Dining room and living room flow together in a vaulted formal space that spans the entire right side of the home. Windows fill most of the front wall, and a great deal of the rear wall as well.
The informal family room / nook / kitchen is even brighter and more spacious. Natural light spills in through two large picture windows, an atrium door, windows that wrap around two sides of the corner sink, and yet another window next to the fireplace. When the weather is warm, it's easy to serve meals on the patio.
A work island with an eating bar expands the counter and cupboard space in the kitchen. The openness of this space makes it possible to interact with folks in the nook or family room while you cook. Utilities are tucked in a pass-through room that connects the kitchen to the garage.
Bedrooms are upstairs. Luxuries in the Augusta's master suite include a roomy walk-in closet and a private bathroom with soaking tub, oversized shower and double vanity. The secondary bedrooms each have direct access to a dual-compartment bathroom. Two people can use it at once, each with a modicum of privacy.
