Charming Update of a Craftsman Bungalow
The Maplecreek is at once compact and spacious. This charming update of a Craftsman bungalow is designed to fit on a narrow lot, yet it offers more than 2,100 sq. ft. of living area, plus covered porches front and back.
Nostalgic wooden handrails rim the front and side of the partially vaulted front porch, while tapered columns set on stone veneer bases further accent the welcoming space. Another set of columns support and highlight the porte-cochere. Craftsman-style windows, gridded above and single-pane below, run a harmonious counterpoint to the lap and shake-textured siding.
For the most part, the ground floor is one expansive gathering space. Entering the naturally bright two-story foyer, the first impression is one of spaciousness. Stair step mullioned windows run parallel to the staircase that climbs up the left wall, while on the opposite side, a wide opening leads into a living room with a gas fireplace.
Handsome wooden posts define the juncture of the living room and a dining area that is entirely open to the kitchen. And just past the kitchen, a den with a storage closet is linked to the dining room as well.
Standing at the built-in cook top range, you face into the dining room across a raised, gently curved conversation bar. Kitchen counters and cabinets are in generous supply, augmented by the pantry and centrally placed work island.
Laundry appliances and a powder room are nearby, clustered around a passageway that links to the porte-cochere.
Three bedrooms are upstairs in the Maplecreek, along with two more bathrooms. Amenities in the luxurious owners' suite include a large spa tub, oversize shower, dual vanity, private toilet, and large walk-in closet.
