Intriguing Westfair: Prairie Style Update
The Westfair, an update of the Prairie-style home, brings to mind the great expanses of the Western United States. Prairie features include: massive square porch supports, detail emphasizing horizontal lines, a hipped roof, and tall casement windows. Most classic examples of this style were built between 1905 and 1915.
A lofty and stately porte-cochere shelters guests as they step from their cars onto an even loftier front porch. Entering, they step through double doors into a high-ceilinged foyer. Ahead, four decorative columns mark the living rooms boundary. The den, to the left, and dining room to the right are both naturally bright and have 13-foot ceilings.
Hallways on the left and right lead to the owners' suite and secondary bedrooms, respectively. Charming display niches line the diagonal section of the hallway across from the dining room.
The kitchen is on the other side of that wall, and a spacious kitchen it is. Counters, appliances and cabinetry on four sides include a roomy walk-in pantry. A cook top is seated in the central work island at center, which adds even more cupboard and counter space.
A long, raised eating bar rims the edge of the kitchen linked to the large family room. Windows filling most of the rear wall are broken only by a home entertainment center. The Westfair's wide-hearthed fireplace sits next to a convenient recessed wood box, while a beverage bar fronts the nearby beverage nook.
Two walk-in closets, one larger than the other, line the central passageway in the luxurious owners' suite. Features here include: a gas fireplace, double-door access to a covered patio, and an upscale bathroom with deep soaking tub, walk-in shower, double vanity, and private toilet.
