Pennington has lofty style
Set into a hillside that slopes up at the rear, the Pennington has the appearance of floating a little above its surroundings. While this basically contemporary plan radiates a European ambiance, it is accented by Craftsman-style features.
The main floor truly is one story up from the driveway and recreation room. One flight of steps ascends from the walkway to a high-ceilinged porch, then another set, inside, sweeps up to the main floor. Sidelights and a lofty arched transom bathe the entry in natural light.
At the top, you arrive in a bright and spacious living room, richly windowed at the rear. A gas fireplace nestles into the right rear corner, next to atrium doors that access a partially covered, wooden deck. Two column-supported, arched openings lead into the dining room, while a raised eating bar bounds the kitchen.
Members of the kitchen patrol can easily keep tabs on living room activities. The kitchen is a bright area in its own right. The sink is tucked into a corner with windows on two sides. Potted plants, even orchids, will thrive in this sunlit space. Counters and cupboards are in generous supply, including a roomy step-in pantry.
The Pennington's bayed and vaulted eating nook is a delightful setting for beginning each day, and offers a bird's-eye view of the driveway and street. A pocket door provides easy access to a utility room, complete with deep sink and a step-in broom closet.
A luxurious owners' suite is at the rear. Amenities include a stepped ceiling, cozy sitting area, private rear deck, and posh bathroom with spa tub, oversize shower, dual vanity and private toilet. Three more bedrooms, a bathroom, and a wealth of storage spaces are up front.
