River Grove naturally bright throughout
A vaulted great room sits at the core of this midsize Craftsman cottage. Wide windows fill most of its rear wall, and multipaned windows sparkle across the River Grove's front facade as well, creating a home as naturally bright as it is spacious.
Two sets of slender posts highlight the front porch, where a gently arched opening invites entry. Light filters into the vaulted foyer through sidelights and a row of small glass panes in the upper part of the door. Double doors on the right open into a vaulted den that's ideally located for use as a home office.
An opening across the hall leads to the secondary bedrooms. The front bedroom is vaulted, and both have walk-in closets.
Moving on through the foyer, you pass a convenient coat closet just before stepping into the expansive great room. Wide windows at the rear offer a view of the patio and beyond. A mess-free gas fireplace nestles in the corner by the windows. Flames dancing in the fireplace will brighten weary spirits while offering warmth and color on dark days and evenings.
The kitchen and dining room are across the great room. A good view of the fireplace can be had while seated at the raised, gently curved eating bar that marks the kitchen/dining area boundary. Kitchen features include built-in appliances and a deep pantry. A large utility room and small combination mudroom/bathroom line the hallway that links the kitchen to the three-car garage.
A hallway to the left of the River Grove's great room leads to the elegant owners' suite. In addition to a deep walk-in closet and large bathroom with two vanities, the suite offers direct access to the patio.
