Modest Rigdon looks sharp, feels spacious
Cozy with a touch of class, the 1,600 square foot Rigdon suits the needs of both empty nesters and young families buying their first home. Brick detailing and a railed porch combine with front gables, a half-round window and an entry fanlight to enhance visual appeal.
A home this size could feel cramped. Not so in the Rigdon. The first impression is one of airy spaciousness. Entering, you pass through a vaulted entry with a dining room on the right, on your way to the combination great room, kitchen and nook. This bright space is wide open and vaulted throughout. Windows flank the fireplace, and still more natural light spills down through two skylights.
Bay windows expand the kitchen, creating a sunny nook that helps ease the transition into each new day. Potted plants, too, will thrive in this bright alcove. Sliders open onto a small patio at the rear, ideal for outdoor dining. Standing at the kitchen sink, you face into the great room and can also keep an eye on kids playing in the back yard. Direct access from the kitchen to the garage comes in handy for unloading groceries and other supplies.
Bedrooms cluster together on the left. The master suite has a large walk-in closet, a skylight and a private bathroom with a double vanity and fully enclosable toilet and shower.
One of the Rigdon's secondary bedrooms is larger than the other, but the smaller room is the one with the graceful half-round window. Either one could be outfitted as a home office, if desired. Utilities are in this wing, close to the source of most dirty laundry.
