Malta melds open spaces
Two small dormers, teamed with a classic covered porch, welcome family members and visitors to the Malta, a two-story home ideal for families who like to entertain. Three large gathering spaces are on the main floor, all linked by a comfortably large kitchen.
Most striking is the vaulted living room, awash with light from two overhead dormers and the stack of windows framing the gas fireplace. Both dormers are accented by plant or display shelves.
Living room and dining room flow together, with a change in ceiling height to provide definition. Ceilings in the dining room, kitchen and family room are 8 feet high and flat.
An angled eating bar with overhead cabinets serves as a partially open interface between the dining room and kitchen. Standing at the range, you face into the living room and dining room. Kitchen counter and storage spaces are generous. A unique phone center with a small built-in desk is centrally located.
The large family room has sliders that open onto a patio. Utilities, a small powder room, and direct garage access are all mere steps from the kitchen. The laundry room is above-average in size and comes outfitted with a deep sink, cabinets, shelves and a counter for folding clothes.
Upstairs, the lavish master suite boasts a vaulted ceiling, two closets, and a luxurious bathroom. The larger closet is a walk-in. Bathroom features include a spa tub, dual vanity, shower and toilet.
Secondary bedrooms share a sky-lit bathroom with combination tub and shower. Entry to the deep storage space over the Malta's garage is through a door in the front bedroom.
