Rambling Colorado a beautiful bungalow
Craftsman-style bungalows reached their peak of popularity in the early 1900s. The Colorado is such an attractive update of that style that it's hard to stop looking at it.
Decorative wooden corbels accent gable peaks and lower rooflines. Simple stickwork highlights the vaulted porch, shingles fill the upper sections of front gables, and Craftsman-style windows sparkle across a front facade underscored by stone veneer wainscoting.
Constructing this home on land that slopes down at the back creates the space needed for a daylight basement and covered patio below the wrap-around suspended deck on the main floor.
Gathering spaces and a master suite fill the rambling main floor. Atrium doors in the bright, vaulted living room access the suspended deck as do similar doors in the master suite and screened porch. This home is clearly designed for easy access to outdoor living.
The living room has a masonry fireplace and large home entertainment center. A two-sided fireplace can be enjoyed from both the den and the kitchen.
Range and oven are built into the large work island at the center of this spacious kitchen. A raised conversation bar rims one edge. Other notable features include: two built-in desks, sinks in two areas, and a sunny nook with a long window seat nestled into its bay window.
A vaulted ceiling expands the well-appointed owners' suite. It boasts two walk-in closets, one much larger than the other. Even more impressive, it has two interconnected master bathrooms, each with its own shower, vanity and toilet!
Two more bedrooms are upstairs, on either side of the Colorado's vaulted loft. Each has its own bathroom.
