Generous Brinton has majestic facade
The Brinton's tall wooden columns support an entry porch that extends a majestic welcome to visitors. Keystone-arched multipaned windows and two monumental, custom-designed chimneys add to the visual appeal of this stately brick and stucco home.
Entering, you step into an impressive, naturally illuminated foyer crowned by a two-story arched ceiling. This area opens into a large, high-ceilinged living room, expanded by a rectangular window bay. Bookcases flank a wide fireplace.
Classic columns mark the dining room's boundaries. A trayed ceiling and built-in hutch accent its elegant ambiance.
Bright, spacious, and rambling, the ground floor also encompasses informal gathering spaces, utilities, a large storage room and an elegant master suite. A second fireplace, wedged between more bookcases, warms the comfortable family room, open to the nook and kitchen.
Light washes into the kitchen and utility room through skylights and slender windows. Kitchen amenities include a walk-in pantry, long conversation bar, built-in desk, and a corner sink with garden window.
The utility room is exceptionally large. In addition to laundry appliances, it has a pull-down ironing board, a counter for sewing and folding clothes, a closet for hanging clothes, a deep sink, and space for a freezer. A small bathroom hides behind a pocket door at the rear.
Two bay windows expand the owners' suite. Glass blocks fill the bathroom bay, which wraps around a spa tub, hidden hamper with seat, and one of two basins. Toilet and shower are separately enclosed, and the double walk-in closet is quite roomy.
Second story rooms in the Brinton include a skylit library, bathroom, guest suite, den, bedroom and a large storage room over the garage.
