Charming Contemporary Craftsman Bungalow
From the outside, the Fairfield has the comfortably familiar appearance of a Craftsman bungalow. Inside, the floor plan has been thoroughly updated to meet the needs and preferences of contemporary families.
This style enjoyed great popularity in the early 1900s and has sparked a resurgent flurry of interest now, in the early 2000s. Characteristic design elements include the decorative gable supports, tapered columns atop stone bases, and multipaned window uppers.
From the covered porch, you step into a foyer with a display niche directly in front of the door. Double doors on the right lead into the owners' suite, while the left side of the foyer is completely open to a living room with a gas fireplace and built-in home entertainment center.
A wide arch links the living room and dining room, which is accessible from two other directions as well. A similar arch connects the dining room to the hallway that leads into the great room, and a pocket door links it to the kitchen. Plenty of natural light spills in through a Craftsman window.
Kitchen counters are well supplied, with sections on four sides. The large kitchen is almost entirely open to the spacious great room. Only a raised conversation bar separates the two. Cupboards are also abundant, including a roomy walk-in pantry just a few steps away.
Laundry appliances are nearby as well. Both a powder room and a utility room line the hallway that joins the great room to the Fairfield's two-car garage.
The well-appointed owners' suite is well-isolated from the busier, noisier areas of the house. Amenities include a walk-in closet, deep soaking tub, dual vanity, and enclosed shower and toilet. Upstairs, two more bedrooms share a bathroom.
