Admiring glances are a given with this two-story Craftsman update. Large and naturally bright, the family room is at the heart of this home where it's open to the sunny nook and gourmet kitchen. Decorative drop beams draw eyes to the stone-lined woodstove alcove at the rear, and the transom-crowned double atrium doors that flank it.

Spacious Etheridge exudes Craftsman charm
Admiring glances are a given with the Etheridge. The home's full spectrum of Craftsman detailing guarantees it.
Each of the numerous windows has Craftsman-style multipaned window uppers, and a slender row of them caps each garage door. Shake textured siding fills the gable fronts, while tapered columns support and highlight the front porch as well as the covered patio at the rear. Bold and handsome king posts crown the porch entry.
Entering via the vaulted porch, you step into a high-ceilinged foyer. A wide opening on the right leads into a living room with a fireplace, shelving and a computer desk. The smaller opening on the left brings you into an alcove with two doors. One opens a coat closet and the other goes to a powder room.
Large and naturally bright, the family room is at the heart of this home. Decorative drop beams run front to back, drawing eyes to the stone-lined woodstove alcove at the rear, and the transom-crowned atrium doors that flank it. This spacious area then flows into the nook and kitchen. Built-in seating lines the nook's rectangular window bay.
Cabinets and built-in appliances line the kitchen on three sides, while counters run along two. A raised conversation bar rims a work island with a prep sink, and a roomy walk-in pantry fills one corner. Laundry appliances are nearby in a spacious, well-appointed utility room with links to both the garage and a pass-through mudroom with backyard access.
The Etheridge's vaulted owners' suite is a secluded retreat. It boasts a fireplace, a luxurious bathroom, and two deep walk-in closets. Two more bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs, along with a skylit bonus room and an attic-style storage room.
