Morley makes it easy to relax, entertain
If relaxing on an old-fashioned porch swing piques your fancy, check out the Morley's front porch. This cozy, recessed area is an ideal location for that swing.
Multipaned windows and painted wooden railings complement the home's welcoming appearance. If needed, the plan can easily be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
The foyer, living room and dining room are all of a piece, giving an initial impression of spaciousness as you enter. A tray ceiling provides definition and a touch of elegance to the dining area.
Family and friends naturally gravitate to the generously-sized family room. Slender rectangular windows flank the direct vent gas fireplace, which offers clean, colorful flames and warmth without the mess and fuss of a wood-burning stove or fireplace.
A richly glassed window bay brightens and expands this comfortable space, creating a roomy, naturally illuminated eating nook. Standing at the kitchen sink, you face into the patio and back yard. A few steps takes you to the lengthy work island, bounded on the far side by a raised eating and conversation bar. Plenty of room here for several cooks to combine culinary efforts, or more experienced cooks to pass on skills to the younger set.
Storage and linen closets line the hallway to the bedroom wing. Luxury touches in the Morley's master suite include a tray ceiling, sliding door patio access, and a private bathroom with a large walk-in closet, spa tub, separate shower, and double vanity.
The large utility room is outfitted with cabinets, counters, pull-down ironing board, deep sink, and a closet for hanging clothes. Its location makes it ideal for use as a mud room as well.
