Nostalgic Exterior, Contemporary Interior
At first glance, the Mayberry will remind you of a simple, nostalgic, American farmhouse. But a closer look at the exterior shows some interesting stylistic differences, while an interior walk-through reveals that it's not at all old-fashioned.
Outside, Victorian-style windows add a touch of class, as does raised trim on the four otherwise sleek porch posts. Scalloped-edge shingles fill the upper triangle of the front-facing gable, creating yet another intriguing focal point.
Natural light spills through sidelights into a wide foyer thats open to a window-rich living room on the left. A convenient powder room fills the alcove behind the coat closet.
Double columns mark the living room's opening, and a set of slender windows flank the gas fireplace. Another columned passageway links this room to the dining room, which, in turn, is totally open to a large, well-appointed kitchen. Double doors in the bayed dining room access a side patio.
Noteworthy kitchen features include: built-in appliances, a roomy walk-in pantry, a rectangular work island rimmed on one side by a rounded eating bar, and a built-in phone desk with cookbook shelves above. The deep utility room, complete with a sink, counter, and cabinets, has an exterior door that leads out to the Mayberry's detached garage.
The plush owners' suite is at the rear, well isolated from secondary bedrooms on the upper floor. In addition to a deep spa tub, it boasts a roomy walk-in closet, oversized shower, dual lavs, and direct access to a private covered porch that creates an ideal location for a hot tub.
Two bedrooms and a bathroom are upstairs, along with a large study/loft expanded by two cozy dormers.
