Granbury Has a Relaxing Sense of Spaciousness
Vaulted ceilings in the ranch-style Granbury create a relaxing sense of spaciousness in a home with slightly more than 1,800 square feet of floor space.
Slender wooden posts support the inviting front porch, and painted shutters accent the multipaned windows. Taken together, they evoke memories of beloved homes from the not so distant past.
Inside, light washes into the vaulted entry through a sidelight and transom. The wide, arched opening on the left leads into a room that could be furnished as a den, parlor, library, or even a home office. The window bay that expands it toward the front lets in plenty of light, while a pocket door on the opposite wall links this space directly to the kitchen.
The entry ceiling slopes up from the front, then sweeps gently down into a vaulted great room with a wide window at the rear. A gas fireplace nestles into a corner opposite the windowed wall. Nothing more than a difference in floor covering marks the transition between the great room and vaulted dining room.
Windowed on two sides, the dining room is a naturally bright area. Sliding glass doors open onto a patio that could be screened and covered, if desired. A peninsular eating bar bounds a kitchen that's almost fully open to the dining room.
It's an efficiency kitchen, with the sink, stove and refrigerator set in a tight, step-saving triangle. Counters wrap around parts of four sides, and a roomy pantry fills one corner.
A skylight brightens the private bathroom in the Granbury's vaulted owners' suite. Other features include: a walk-in closet, dual vanity, and enclosed toilet and shower.
