Paxton smart and handsome
Lap siding interspersed with wide swaths of brick veneer combine to give the Paxton a handsome front facade. The recessed front porch adds to the visual appeal.
This home is equally well-suited to the needs of families with small children, or empty nesters seeking to downsize their living space and still offer sleeping accommodations to overnight guests. It could easily be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
Entering, you step into a wide foyer brightened by a tall, slender sidelight. A coat closet hides behind accordion doors to the right. In the living room, which is open to and directly ahead of the foyer, more light washes in through a wall of windows crowned by a gracefully arched transom. The gas fireplace serves as a warm and inviting focal point on chilly evenings or dark days.
A change in ceiling height, going from vaulted to flat, marks the boundary between the living room and kitchen/dining area. This area, too, is awash in natural light. Windows and a glass door offer views and patio access, and in the kitchen, more windows front the corner sink. Potted plants thrive in this sunny, frequently moist environment.
Laundry appliances and a large walk-in pantry are nearby. The utility room is surprisingly large, outfitted with a deep sink and a counter for folding clothes. A small water closet hides behind a pocket door at the rear.
Bedrooms cluster together in the right wing, where a large storage closet lines the hallway. The Paxton's master suite boasts a walk-in closet and private bathroom with a spa tub, shower, and dual vanity. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom.
