Small, Aesthetically Pleasing, with a Sense of Spaciousness
If multi-storied, mega-sized homes hold no appeal, you just might find the Stanford to your liking. On the outside, it's a Craftsman, ranch-style home. Inside its abundance of popular amenities fit neatly and aesthetically into about 1,500 square feet of single-level, spacious-feeling living space.
Vaulted ceilings in the common areas have a lot to do with that sense of spaciousness. The vaulted entry leads to bedrooms on the left, and opens into the vaulted living room on the right, which flows on into the vaulted dining room and kitchen.
A long, raised eating bar marks the juncture of the dining room and kitchen, while a side door in the dining room offers access to a covered patio that could be screened for bug protection, if desired. The other side door provides a direct link with the two-car garage.
Cabinets and counters on four sides of the kitchen include a generously sized walk-in pantry. Standing at the kitchen sink, you can gaze out the window to keep an eye on goings-on.
Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a good-size utility room cluster together in the left wing. Owners' suite amenities include: a roomy walk-in closet, and a two-section bathroom. A double vanity is in one part, while a pocket door sections off another part to provide both privacy and steam containment for the shower and toilet. Two more bedrooms share the main, central bathroom.
Outside, stone veneer bases support the slender wooden porch posts that highlight the Stanford's wide covered porch. Multipaned windows sparkle across a front facade that features the horizontal lines of lap siding, except for the vertical bats and boards that fill all three front-facing gable ends.
