Mid-sized Strasbourg has fetching facade
Raised corner quoins, interesting roof lines, and a variety of window treatments draw eyes to the Strasbourg, a midsize contemporary home with a large bonus room over the garage.
The great room is huge, and the vaulted ceiling makes it feel even larger. Tall slender windows flanking the fireplace provide plenty of natural light. Storage is also more than ample. A wide, deep closet is tucked under the stairs, and another nestles into a nearby nook.
An open wall bounds the great room and kitchen. Windows on two sides brighten the nook, with the rear sliders opening onto a partially covered patio. The raised eating bar is handy for ladling soup directly from the pot to waiting bowls. It can also double as a buffet, or serve as additional counter space when needed.
Here again, storage space is abundant, thanks in part to the large step-in pantry. A small bathroom and a large utility room are nearby. The utility room has direct access to the garage, which makes it a handy mudroom for taking off dirty footgear and/or drying muddy paws.
Amenities in the Strasbourg's owners' suite include his 'n' hers walk-in closets (one larger than the other) and a luxurious two-section bathroom. Glass blocks or opaque glass over the soaking tub provide soft, natural illumination, while a pocket door offers privacy and steam containment. Sliders at the rear open onto a private patio.
Upstairs, two more bedrooms share a bathroom with combination tub and shower. More storage space is available in the closet on the landing. The large bonus room could be put to countless uses.
