Compact Lamont has appealing facade
Custom brick detailing, multipaned windows, and four variously sized gables boost the Lamont's street appeal. This compact single-level home is well-suited to the needs of young families. Empty nesters and individuals who use wheelchairs will also find much to appreciate here.
Entering, you step into a skylit vaulted entry. Double doors on the left open into a formal living room expanded by a wide rectangular window bay.
Straight ahead is the vaulted great room, through an arched opening with an overhead plant shelf. Spacious, naturally bright, and entirely open, it combines the functions of kitchen, dining room and family room.
Work surfaces in the large kitchen are in plentiful supply. Family members and friends can combine culinary efforts here without getting in each other's way. If outfitted with stools, the far edge of the meandering work island becomes an eating and conversation bar.
When skies are gray, the gas fireplace provides a cheerful focal point, as clean-burning as it is mess-free. The cabinetry next to it houses a home entertainment center, with space for a television, VCR, DVD, and the like. Across the room, one set of windows slides open for patio access.
Amenities in the Lamont's master suite include a large walk-in closet and a two-section bathroom with double vanity. The pocket door slides closed to isolate the toilet and shower for steam containment and privacy.
Bedroom three, located to the right of the entry, could be used as a study or home office. If desired, the owners can add an exterior door for direct porch access.
The pass-through utility room is also a handy place for cleaning up muddy paws and shucking dirty footgear.
