Compact Dayton has lofty great room at center
Twin sets of slender posts frame the entrance to the Dayton, a compact single-level home with a large vaulted great room. Brick veneer wainscoting adds to the sense of permanence, while an octagonal bay rounds out the front facade.
A 15-foot ceiling gives an expansive feel to the naturally illuminated entry. Light washes in through a sidelight, and more spills down through the triple-windowed dormer above. A door on the right swings open to access the window-bright bayed den. This room could serve as a home office, hobby room, study, or you-name-it.
One unusual feature of this plan is the central placement of bathrooms and utilities. In addition to being conveniently located, these rooms act as sound buffering between the bedrooms and gathering spaces.
The large C-shaped kitchen is well-supplied with cupboards and counter space, while a raised eating bar provides partial separation between the kitchen and dining area. Brightened and expanded by a window bay, and crowned by the apex of the vaulted ceiling, this space makes a striking setting for meals. A huge pantry hides behind double doors on the inside wall.
Windows fill most of the rear wall. One of them is a door that opens onto a small patio. A gas fireplace offers warmth and color when desired.
Master suite amenities include: a large walk-in closet, double vanity, linen storage, and a separately enclosed shower and WC. Secondary bedrooms share a bathroom outfitted with a combination tub and shower.
The Dayton's utility room is in a passthrough space connected to the garage. It comes outfitted with a handy pull-down ironing board and deep sink.\t
