Westwood a small home with a big heart
The Westwood is a modestly sized Craftsman bungalow with a big heart. It's equally well-suited to the needs of families at both ends of the spectrum: couples or small families buying their first home, and empty nesters wishing to downsize their living space and maintenance obligations.
Craftsman detailing includes the tapered columns set on stone veneer bases, shake-textured siding cladding the gable ends, multipaned windows, and decorative gable ends.
Vaulted ceilings increase the sense of spaciousness in the foyer and great room. Natural light washes into the foyer through a sidelight, a transom, and panes of glass near the top of the door. A triangular coat closet nestles into an alcove at the juncture of the foyer and living room.
The vaulted great room is even brighter than the foyer. Windows flank a gas fireplace at the rear, close to sliding glass doors that offer access to a partially covered patio. Light spilling in through another wide window on the side further illuminates this wide open gathering space, which is sure to be at the heart of family living.
A long raised eating bar bounds the kitchen and dining area. Counters wrap around three sides of the good-size kitchen, while cupboards line two walls. Windows in front of the sink offer a view to the side. A large walk-in pantry doubles the storage capacity. Laundry appliances are conveniently close in a pass-through utility room that links the house to its two-car garage.
Secondary bedrooms are up front in the Westwood, where they share the main bathroom. The owners' suite has a larger, more luxurious bathroom complete with soaking tub, shower, linen closet, and double vanity. The walk-in closet there is exceptionally deep.
