Warm Tazewell good for a growing family
An inviting front porch welcomes family and guests to the Tazewell. The porch section to the right of the entry is perfect for hanging a hammock or wooden porch swing.
Distinctive windows, tapered columns and decorative gable accents give a Craftsman flavor to this mid-size, two-story home, designed to suit the needs of a growing family.
Abundant natural light streams into the two-story entry through sidelights and a wide transom. Double doors on the right swing open into a living room expanded by a rectangular window bay. On the opposite side of the room, a single door leads to a powder room, and the family gathering spaces at the rear.
Bright and lofty, the two-story great room has an exceptionally spacious feel. Wide windows on two levels flank the gas fireplace, and more light washes in through side windows at the ground and clerestory levels.
The great room is totally open to the nook, where the ceiling drops to a more typical height and wide sliders provide patio access. The nook, in turn, is open to the kitchen, and bounded by a raised eating bar. A roomy walk-in pantry boosts the already generous storage space. Laundry appliances are just around the corner, in a large utility room complete with a deep sink and handy folding counter.
On the far side of the house, the Tazewell's master suite fills the space, front to back. A spa tub, easily large enough for two, nestles in the front alcove of the vaulted bathroom. Other amenities include: a double vanity, totally private toilet, and a large walk-in closet. Three more bedrooms share a two-section bathroom on the second level. The front bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and windows on two levels.
