Craftsman styling highlights Rockport
Tapered columns and multipaned window uppers lend Craftsman charm to the Rockport. This two-story contemporary Craftsman cottage is an economical plan, designed to meet the needs of a young and/or growing family.
A nostalgic covered porch spans half of the front facade, extending from the home's entry to the garage's walk-in entry. The two-car garage is also directly accessible from the kitchen, a feature which will be greatly appreciated when unloading groceries after dark or in inclement weather.
Entering, you step into a great room with a wide window up front and a gas fireplace on the side. This room is open to the dining room, which is, in turn, open to the kitchen. Sliding glass doors in the dining room offer easy access to the covered patio outside, which could be screened.
A flush eating bar rims the kitchen's peninsular counter on the dining room side. Inside the kitchen, counters and cupboards are plentiful, wrapping around all four sides. Standing at the kitchen sink, you have a clear view of the back yard.
The owners' suite is the only bedroom on the ground floor. It's down a short hallway, just past a powder room and utility room. Owners' suite amenities include a dual vanity, private toilet, large shower and deep walk-in closet.
Two more bedrooms and a large bonus room are on the Rockport's upper level. Storage closets line the hallway that links the bedrooms to the bonus room. A two-section bathroom allows one child to be bathing or using the toilet while another spends quality time with the mirror. The bonus room has a window at one end. Its ceiling tapers down on the sides in typical attic fashion.
