A nostalgic railed porch wraps across the front and around to the right of this spacious country home plan. Natural light spills into a vaulted entry through a skylight, and more washes into the vaulted great room through wide windows at the rear. Kitchen and nook are also vaulted and naturally bright.

Nostalgic country design
Standing in the Briarton's spacious vaulted great room, you might forget that this is a small house. Windows fill most of the rear wall, making this space as bright as it is spacious. Sliding doors open onto a rear deck.
Measuring in at about 1,650 square feet of living space, the home's modest size makes it well-suited to the needs of empty nesters as well as young families.
The nostalgic railed porch makes it easy to imagine lazing away a summer afternoon on a porch swing, or stepping out for a breath of fresh air on rainy or snowy nights. This sheltered area could be gated to create a safely contained and sheltered outdoor play area for toddlers or small dogs.
Natural light spills into the vaulted entry through a slender sidelight and half-round window near the top of the door. A roomy coat closet is off to the left, and the kitchen is to the right. Counters wrap around four sides of the kitchen, offering abundant work space for a family of cooks.
A raised eating bar rims the peninsular counter that bounds the window-rich vaulted nook. Potted plants thrive in this bright space, and the morning light helps ease family members gently into each new day.
Laundry utilities are nearby in a passthrough space that links the house to the garage. Cabinets and a counter fill the wall opposite the appliances.
Bedrooms cluster together on the left. The Briarton's master suite has a deep walk-in closet, plus a private bathroom with dual vanity and a large shower. Both of the secondary bedrooms have rectangular window bays that could house window seats, if desired.
