Anderson centers on vaulted living room
A spacious vaulted living room is at the core of the Anderson. This midsize family home is all on one level, so it could easily be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
Brick veneer graces the front facade and completely encases the bold entry column. Raised brick trim highlights a dramatic arched, multipaned window, accenting the half-round at the top. More raised brick rims the upper edge of the brick veneer wainscoting.
Inside, vaulted ceilings expand the sense of spaciousness in the foyer, den, living room, and both the front and back bedrooms. Light spills into the foyer through sidelights and a transom. Double doors on the left open into a vaulted den with wide windows. This room could be used as a home office.
An arched opening leads directly into the living room. Triple sliders at the rear let in plenty of light, when the sun is out. When it's not, the gas fireplace tucked in the right rear corner can burst into colorful, carefree, flames to warm bodies and perk up flagging spirits.
Recessed shelves on the left are ideal for displaying art objects or dried flower arrangements. Arched openings provide kitchen and dining room access, and a nearly hidden stairway climbs to the deep bonus room over the garage.
A long, gently bowed eating bar is all that divides the kitchen from the dining room. Kitchen storage and counter spaces are plentiful, including a roomy step-in pantry. The dining room has a built-in buffet.
Luxury touches in the Anderson's master suite include: a roomy walk-in closet, dual vanity, large shower, deep soaking tub, and a totally private toilet. This bedroom also offers direct access to a partially covered patio.
