Charming Contemporary Country Craftsman
Tapered porch columns set atop stone veneer bases give a Craftsman flavor to the contemporary country-style Bigsby. This four-bedroom plan has a footprint thats a mere 40 feet wide, so it fits neatly on a fairly narrow lot.
Family and friends will enjoy congregating in the vaulted great room. Natural light washes in through wide windows on two walls, and a gas fireplace nestles into a corner at the rear.
This large space is open to the kitchen, where cupboard and counter space are both in plentiful supply. Counters span sections of four sides, while upper and lower cupboards, including a roomy pantry, are on three. Standing at the cook top, you can enjoy watching flickering fireplace flames, chat with family and friends, or let your gaze take in the covered patio and beyond.
Double doors in the foyer open into a bayed room that could be used as an office, den, or parlor. A centrally placed powder room is close to the front door and all other ground floor rooms as well. A large utility room with open shelves is just a few steps down the hall.
A well-appointed owners' suite fills the right wing. Features in its luxurious bathroom include a large walk-in closet, deep spa tub, dual vanity, and separately enclosed shower and toilet.
Three more bedrooms and a two-section bathroom are upstairs in the Bigsby, along with a loft that overlooks the vaulted great room. This space makes an ideal location for a library, a desk or two, and a shared computer. Or it could simply be furnished with a couple of easy chairs and used as a quiet retreat.
