Nostalgic Brillion centers on great room
A nostalgic covered porch wraps across and around the front and side of the Brillion, giving a welcoming look to this midsize family home. The plan has a formal dining room, but no living room. However, the den could be outfitted as a parlor if desired, or as a home office.
The foyer is brightened by a sidelight and transom, and a roomy coat closet is near the door. Another closet, along with a powder room, is tucked under the stairs, close to the garage access.
At the base of the open staircase, the ceiling begins sloping up, soaring to two stories in height. From the second floor landing, you can overlook this cheerful vaulted great room, which is further brightened by three large skylights. The fireplace is flanked by high windows.
Kitchen and nook are open to the great room. A large combination work island/eating bar expands the available counter space. Cooks can watch the flames dance in the fireplace, talk to people in other parts of the room, or gaze out the rear windows to the patio and beyond.
Other features include built-in appliances, a roomy step-in pantry, and lazy Susan shelving in one corner, with space for a microwave oven at counter level. A pocket door between the kitchen and dining room offers the options of separation or openness.
Double doors open into the Brillion's commodious master suite. The private patio is designed with a hot tub in mind, and the suite's walk-in closet is roomy. The bathroom boasts a dual vanity, naturally illuminated spa tub, and enclosed shower and toilet.
Two more bedrooms and a bathroom are on the second floor, plus a deep bonus room with side storage caps the garage.
