Petersfield offers luxurious living
Plant shelves, window ledges, and other visually intriguing details give a European flavor to the Petersfield. Shingle siding and a generous use of stone veneer add to the charm.
The main house offers more than 4,000 square feet of living space on two floors, and the space above the garage provides another 900+ that could be used as a home office, recreation room, or outfitted as a separate living unit.
In the main house, a wide foyer links to a sunny, vaulted living room on the left, and leads into a window-bright dining room at the rear. A meandering, covered patio runs along the exterior windows while wrapping around a garden courtyard.
Glass paneled cabinets mark the dining room/kitchen boundary. Ideal for displaying and easily accessing fine china, these cabinets could be set high to leave the lower counter open on both sides for use as a buffet.
The kitchen has a large, free-standing table at center and a traditional wood-burning stove and cooktop accessible from both the dining room and kitchen. But the owners needn't rely solely on wood for cooking. Modern appliances are built in as well, and the roomy pantry has space for an upright freezer.
A desk nook is to the right of the kitchen, just inside a large family room with plenty of windows and a masonry fireplace. Two banks of bookshelves line the passageway that leads into the studio. This richly windowed room has a built-in computer desk that fills one corner. Shelves line one wall section, and wrap around two sides of the walk-in closet.
The Petersfield's luxurious owners' suite and bathroom are upstairs, along with two more bedrooms, another bathroom, a utility room, study nook, and sunroom/bunk room. Kids will love the bunk alcoves there.
