Elegant Elmore includes caretakers's suite
Custom brick detailing, raised corner quoins and arched windows give a look of classical elegance to the Elmore, a large home with a caretaker's suite over the garage. This plan could be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
Rooms and hallways are large throughout. Ceilings in most of the group living areas are a lofty nine feet, so the rooms feel even larger. Dining room and living room flank the entry. Both are brightened by wide windows. Pocket doors in the living room allow full closure.
Tall windows flank the gas fireplace at the rear of the great room, while the rear wall of the nook is mostly glass. Sliders open onto a large patio.
Cupboards and counters wrap around three sides of a kitchen with a large central work island. A roomy pantry fills nearly half of one wall. Standing at the kitchen sink, you can face into the great room or gaze out the rear windows.
A large utility room is close by, connected to the tandem three-car garage. This space also serves as a mud room. Muddy footgear can be taken off here, and muddy-pawed pets have a place to dry off a bit before entering the house.
The Elmore's well-appointed master suite boasts two walk-in closets, one larger than the other. Sliding glass doors open onto a private patio. Luxuries in the bathroom include twin basins, an oversized shower, and a sit-down vanity.
The caretaker's suite is entered through either the nook or an exterior door. This small apartment has two skylights, a large walk-in closet, compact kitchen and full bathroom.
