Fetching Schuyler fits in town or country
If you're searching for a plan that takes full advantage of a rear view, check out the Schuyler. This contemporary shingle-style bungalow fits right in beside an ocean or lake, and is equally adaptable for year-round living in a suburban neighborhood.
Shake-textured siding covers most of the front, where Craftsman-style windows also invite admiring glances. A classic iron railing rims the front porch.
Plenty of natural light beams into the vaulted foyer through sidelights and a wide transom. Double doors on the left access a vaulted room that could be a den or home office. A narrower opening on the right links to secondary bedrooms and a bathroom.
At the far end of the foyer, a roomy coat closet is opposite the opening into the spacious, vaulted living room. With windows filling most of the rear wall, this area is as bright as it is large. A gas fireplace nestles into the far corner at the window's edge.
Two openings lead off the living room to the kitchen. The larger of the two opens into an area that could be furnished informally as an eating nook, or more formally as a dining room. Either way, people and potted plants will thrive in this window-bright environment.
The long, raised eating bar is great for snacking, chatting and homework supervision. In the kitchen there's plenty of counter and cupboard space, built-in appliances, and a walk-in pantry. Laundry appliances are nearby, in a passthrough room that connects to the three-car garage.
Luxuries in the Schuyler's master suite include: a large walk-in closet, deep soaking tub, and dual vanity. Toilet and shower can be partitioned off for privacy and steam containment.
