Vicksburg has bright, traditional layout
The three banks of multipaned windows that sparkle across the Vicksburg's front facade run a lively counterpoint to the stately brick veneer. Sidelights and a high arched transom frame the door and brighten the entry.
This neoclassical home is an update of a traditional, ranch-style plan. Living spaces are all on one level, with the exception of a long bonus room that extends over the garage. Formal rooms are at the front, a large informal gathering space is at the rear, and bedrooms are on the right.
Passing under the arched brick opening, you step into the naturally illuminated, high-ceilinged entry. Wide openings on the right and left lead into the living room and dining room, respectively. A built-in hutch/buffet in the dining room cuts diagonally across one corner.
Both dining and living rooms also have wide openings that link them to a transecting hallway. One end of the passage leads to the bedrooms, while the opposite end offers access to the garage. A computer alcove is on the left of the short passageway to the kitchen, and a powder room is to the right.
The long kitchen boasts a generously sized work island rimmed by an eating bar. This whole space is wide open to the vaulted and skylit family room, as well as a sunny nook, windowed on three sides. Sliding glass doors there open onto a partially covered patio. Flames in the family rooms gas fireplace provide warmth and color on dark days and nights.
A skylight brightens the owners' bathroom, which also boasts a spa tub, roomy shower, dual vanity, and private toilet. Natural light washes down into the Vicksburg's third bathroom through yet another large skylight.
