Traditional Home with European Ambiance
Flanked by stone veneer columns and crowned by a lofty arch, the Abbington's entry portico extends a rustic yet stately welcome. The portico creates a stunning frame for the equally intriguing entry door, set between slender sidelights, and capped by an arched transom. Taken together, these elements give this contemporary home a decidedly European ambiance.
Living space is all on one floor, except for the recreation room over the garage. It comes complete with a bathroom, storage, closet, two windows and two skylights, so it could be furnished as a living area, teen room or left available as a guest suite.
French doors in the naturally illuminated vaulted entry open into a vaulted den on the right, while the bright and spacious vaulted great room is straight ahead. This core living area has a gas fireplace and is easily the largest room, combining the functions of family room, nook and kitchen. One of the three door-sized windows in the nook actually is an atrium door that swings open to access the partially covered patio. The hobby room, next to the nook, could be used as a home office, sewing room, exercise area, or whatever suits.
The raised conversation bar that rims one edge of the kitchen transitions into an eating bar as it wraps around to the rear. Cupboards and counters are in good supply, and laundry appliances are just around the corner in a pass-through utility room that links with the Abbingtons three-car garage.
Bedrooms and bathrooms cluster together on the left. The owners' suite, at the rear, has direct patio access, along with a roomy walk-in closet, and a private bathroom with two vanities, walk-in shower and private toilet.
Secondary bedrooms share a central two-section bathroom with a combination tub and shower.
