Updated Victorian-Cottage Style Callaway
The Callaway is a contemporary cottage with a country-Victorian flavor. The wooden posts and railings on its wide front porch give it that country-cottage look, while the intriguing arched window and scallop-shingled gable fronts add dashes of nostalgic Victorian flavor.
Families are sure to appreciate the multiplicity of amenities that the designers managed to fit into slightly less than 1400 square feet of living space.
Family gathering spaces fill the left side; private rooms are on the right. The vaulted living room has one wide window in the front, and two slender windows on the side. The ceiling height drops and flattens toward the rear, where the living room transitions into the dining room.
Light spills into this bright space through wide windows at the side and a set of sliding glass doors at the rear that open onto a partially covered patio. Counters in the C-shaped kitchen are extended by a peninsula with a flush eating bar that bounds the dining room. Standing at the kitchen sink, you can keep an eye on activities in the back yard and on the patio.
A hallway just around the corner from the Callaway's kitchen leads to the bedrooms, bathrooms, and a pass-through utility room that links with the garage. Broom, linen, and coat closets line the hallway, and a bank of cabinets fills the wall over the washer and dryer.
The owners' suite has a vaulted ceiling that slopes down to the left and right, a private bathroom with a double vanity, and a walk-in closet that's surprisingly roomy for a home this size. Secondary bedrooms share the main bathroom, which has a combination tub and shower.
