Cauldwell has rustic warmth, great views
Stone veneer wainscoting and shake-textured siding lend their rustic ambiance to the contemporary-Craftsman Cauldwell. This is basically a single-level plan. Only the bonus room over the garage is upstairs. Thus, this plan is easily wheelchair adaptable.
Windows fill most of the rear, offering panoramic views in that direction. So this plan is also well-suited for construction on a view lot.
Accent trim gracefully defines the entry porch’s gently arched opening. On the other side of the door, abundant natural light washes into the foyer through sidelights and an arched transom. French doors on the right open into a vaulted parlor. Wide Craftsman-style windows fill most of the front wall, and these are capped by a smaller clerestory window at center.
On the far side of the foyer, a wide arched opening leads directly into the great room. This, too, is a bright space. Two banks of windows fill the back wall, and the entire family living area wraps around a partially covered patio. A coat closet and convenient powder room are to the left of the foyer.
The kitchen is partially enclosed, partially open to this large gathering space. Its raised eating counter hides kitchen clutter while providing seating for conversation or informal meals.
Two stacks of cookbook shelves line the passage linking the kitchen to the large pantry and spacious utility room across the hall. Secondary bedrooms are further down the hall, along with a two-section bathroom.
The Cauldwell’s owners’ suite boasts its own large bathroom, two closets (one a roomy walk-in), and direct patio access. Bathroom luxuries include: a deep spa or soaking tub, oversized shower, dual vanity and totally private toilet.
