Design has intriguing details
The contemporary-craftsman Whitingham offers observers a wide spectrum of eye-catching details.
Shingles blanket the chimney as well as the gable ends, which are further accented by decorative supports. Stone veneer wainscoting adds a country look, and most of the windows have craftsman-style gridding on their upper edges. Slender posts flank the entry, and another set highlights the third garage door.
Plenty of natural light washes into the foyer through multipaned sidelights and a gracefully arched transom. On the right, double doors swing open to access a den with a gas fireplace. This room could be furnished as a home office, library/study, or whatever is needed.
Next to those doors, an arched opening leads into the master suite. A wider arch, directly ahead, guides you into the spacious family living area.
This is clearly the heart of the home. Dining room, living room and kitchen flow together here for comfortable family living. All parts are visually open, but the long, raised eating counter does allow the kitchen crew to conceal cooking clutter.
Standing behind that counter, you can enjoy watching flames dance in the wood-burning fireplace across the room. Or linger at the kitchen sink to take in the changing seasons as they play out in the view to the rear. The large, partially covered patio can be accessed from either the kitchen or the living room.
The Whitingham's master suite is in the right wing. Secondary bedrooms, utilities, and a two-section bathroom fill the left wing. The master bedroom offers direct patio access, plus a luxurious bathroom that boasts a dual vanity, oversized shower, private toilet, and huge walk-in closet with a pull-down ironing board.
