Contemporary Prairie-style Ranch Home
A bright and spacious vaulted living room is at the core of the Cheyenne, a prairie-style ranch home designed to fill the needs and satisfy the desires of a contemporary family. The vaulted den just inside the front entry is ideally situated for use as a home office.
Outside, the medley of lap siding and brick veneer that clads the exterior, runs a harmonious counterpoint to the rectangular gridding on the garage doors and window uppers. The entry's sidelights and transom fit nicely with this theme.
After passing the den's double-door entry on the right side of the vaulted foyer and the wide coat closet on the left, you pass under a display shelf as you step into a richly windowed, vaulted living room. A gas fireplace fills the rear corner. The way the kitchen is laid out, you can enjoy the fireplace flames while cooking or chatting with folks seated at the conversation bar.
A gently curved, raised eating bar rims the kitchen where it faces into the dining room, so cooks can keep an eye on activities there, as well as on the covered patio. A roomy pantry nestles under the stairway leading to a bonus room over the three-car garage, and laundry appliances hide behind a pocket door in a pass-through room that links with the garage.
The Cheyenne's luxurious owners' suite bathroom serves as a sound buffer between the adult sleeping area and secondary bedrooms. Special touches include: a tray ceiling in the sleeping area, a deep soaking tub, dual vanity, roomy walk-in closet, and separately enclosed shower and toilet.
The bedroom at the front of the house has a vaulted ceiling and shares the main bathroom with the other bedroom.
