Aroland has ample living, storage space
Arched windows and extensive masonry create an aura of permanence in the Aroland, a gracious estate-sized home with two two-car garages. This plan offers nearly 4,000 square feet of living space, with almost 2,000 more devoted to attic storage and garages.
On entering the two-story foyer, you see a stairway that wraps up the left side. Its landing forms a bridge that overlooks both the foyer and an equally high-ceilinged great room. This is a bright space. Two long, slender windows flank the fireplace, and double doors in the passageway to the family room open onto a large, partially covered patio.
A big, cheerful area, the vaulted family room is completely open to the kitchen. It has another fireplace, a home entertainment center, and a sunny nook with glass doors. A second stairway connects the family room to the second floor.
The kitchen has everything, including a huge walk-in pantry, work island and eating bar. There's even a built-in desk, nestled in the hallway that leads to the spacious utility room and elegant tray-ceilinged dining room. The vaulted den could be used as a home office.
Luxuries in the master suite include a sitting bay, two roomy walk-in closets, and a skylit bathroom with two basins, custom shower, private toilet and a fold-down ironing board for last minute touch-ups.
Upstairs, the front bedroom has two window seats nestled in twin dormers, and a private bathroom. The two rear bedrooms share a second skylit bathroom. The Aroland's bonus room and attic space could be left as storage, or developed into finished rooms as needed.
