Fillmore is evocative of past farmhouses
The Fillmore puts the viewer in mind of yesteryear farmhouses. Lap siding helps create that impression, as do the wide front porch, Craftsman windows, and front-facing, gabled dormer.
This plan is designed for a lot that slopes up at the rear and offers an alley access for the garage. A charming wooden stairway leads up to the railed front porch, which is on the main floor level.
Inside, another stairway directly ahead leads up to the sleeping areas, clustered together on the second floor. On the right, the entry is open to a parlor, which links with the dining room at the rear.
To the left of the entry, a cased opening reveals the large, bright family room that will quite likely be the most used gathering space. Muted natural light washes into this area from two sides: through Craftsman windows that face the street, and the wide sliding glass doors that access a covered deck on the side.
A peninsular counter rimmed by a raised eating bar marks the family room/kitchen boundary. Family and friends can hang out here to chat with kitchen workers, and it's also a great location for kids to get homework supervision and support. The range on the other side of the counter makes it easy to serve up snacks and informal meals. The Fillmore's utility room, garage access, and a powder room are all mere steps away.
Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs. The owners' suite has a walk-in closet plus a private bathroom with a dual vanity. The front-facing bedroom boasts a wide front window, while the side bedroom is more spacious.
