Grayson a sign of the times
The four-bedroom Grayson is a contemporary home with a Craftsman flavor. You see it in the tapered columns fronting the deep covered porch, as well as in the river rock wainscoting and column supports. Other Craftsman-inspired touches include decorative roof supports and the trademark double-hung windows, each with multiple upper panes and a large single pane below.
Entering the Grayson, you step into a vaulted entry where light spills in through sidelights and a broad transom window. Double doors on the right open into a dining room that can be fully enclosed if desired.
Straight ahead is a bright and spacious great room. Its vaulted ceiling slopes down to a richly glassed rear wall, where a fireplace nestles into the left corner. More light washes in through two large rectangular skylights.
The kitchen and informal dining areas are off to the right, but fully open to the great room, separated only by an angled work island with a raised eating counter. Standing at the kitchen sink you can keep an eye on everybody and everything in the great room, nook, patio, and rear yard.
Laundry appliances are nearby, in a passthrough utility room that connects to the garage. The half-bath with utility sink is convenient for wash-up after gardening or working in the garage. A stairway next to the bathroom leads to a large bonus room over the garage.
Display shelves rim the highest wall of the Grayson's vaulted oweners' suite. This adult retreat boasts a huge walk-in closet and an elegant bathroom with a soaking tub, twin vanities, and an oversized shower. An atrium door provides direct access to the covered patio.
