Elements harmonize in lavish Bellingham
From the street, the estate-size Bellingham presents a pleasing medley of brick, stone, arched windows and gables. Inside you'll find a lavish spectrum of gathering spaces, some luxurious and some relaxed, plus five bedrooms and a den (or home office). The huge bonus room over the three-car garage could be finished as needed, or left as storage space.
Natural light spills into the dramatic two-story foyer through sidelights, a transom, and an arched window on the second level. An elegant staircase curves up the right side. Its easy to imagine a lovely bride making her graceful entrance here, to begin a wedding ceremony. The second floor landing overlooks the entry area.
An arched opening on the left accesses a stately dining room, while double doors on the right open into a den. A passageway links the dining room and kitchen. One side of the passageway is lined with storage and display cabinets; a convenient powder room is on the opposite side. The den has its own private porch with a French door entry, which makes it ideal for use as a home office.
Everyday family life centers on the combination family room and kitchen. Family members will like sitting at the conversation bar, watching flames in the masonry fireplace, or clustering around the entertainment center. Potted plants thrive and people enjoy starting each day in this sunny nook.
Luxury amenities in the Bellingham's master suite include: a huge walk-in closet with drop-down ironing board, and a private bathroom with dual vanity, oversized shower and built-in dresser.
Two naturally illuminated stairways lead upstairs. A vaulted guest room is one of four large bedrooms here. All four offer plenty of storage space, plus direct access to one of three bathrooms.
