Impressive Brookport stylish, functional
It's easy to picture the Craftsman-style Brookport as a vacation lodge on a lake, in the mountains, or along the ocean. But this spacious plan is equally well-suited for construction in an upscale neighborhood where acreage parcels are the norm.
The exterior exihibits the pleasing medley of textures typical of Craftsman homes. Shingles fill gable ends, and triplets of small panes highlight the upper edges of windows. Stone veneer bases support the handsome wooden columns lining the vaulted colonnade that leads to a double-door entry.
Inside, it's equally impressive. The vaulted living room has a central water feature. Natural light washes down through skylights, and more spills in through wide, high windows on both sides of the fireplace. Glass-centered double doors open out onto a covered porch at the rear.
The living room is open to a vaulted dining room with a built-in buffet next to a bank of display shelves. The gourmet kitchen's range-top work island has a rounded eating bar that faces into the dining room. The kitchen also boasts a wood stove, prep sink, extra-deep walk-in pantry, and skylit nook.
Access to the large family room is via an opening in the nook and a hallway near the eating bar. A spacious utility room is nearby, along with the luxurious owners' suite and a roomy guest suite. Owners' suite amenities include a large two-section walk-in closet, a sauna, and a deluxe bathroom. The two-sided fireplace can be enjoyed from the spa tub and/or the sleeping area.
Two more bedrooms are upstairs. Each has its own bathroom plus a balcony. A large bonus room and study with a covered balcony, fill out the rest of the Brookport's second floor.
