Contemporary Hargrove has vintage look
Double sets of 8" by 8" square posts support the Hargrove's soaring entry porch. The shape of its gracefully curved arch is echoed in side windows on the left, as well as in the transom crowning the door and sidelights.
Other notable exterior features include: a keystone garage door arch, copper roofing over a window bay, and plenty of eye-catching stone veneer.
This contemporary European style plan offers nearly 3,000 square feet of indoor living area, about evenly divided between private and gathering spaces. With the exception of an upstairs storage area, bonus room and bathroom, this is a single level home.
Vaulted ceilings enhance the sense of expansiveness in the entry, dining room (or parlor), and great room. In the latter, plenty of natural light spills down through three skylights, and more beams in through windows on both sides of the gas fireplace. The bayed nook is sunny, and offers access to a partially covered patio through two sliders at center. The hobby room, too, has patio access.
In the spacious kitchen, counters and storage areas wrap around three sides. More of both are available in a central work island that has a built-in range. An oven and microwave are recessed into the cabinets on the opposite wall.
The passthrough utility room links the kitchen and garage. Doors at both ends make this an ideal place for containing pets, and it can serve as a mudroom as well. Storage is plentiful at the rear of the two-car garage.
Luxury touches in the Hargrove's master suite include: tray ceiling, roomy walk-in closet, and a private bathroom with dual vanity, spa tub, and separately enclosed shower and toilet.
