Crownpoint offers Prairie-style openness
Low-pitched roof lines, wide eaves, and bold squared porch support columns mark the Crownpoint as a contemporary Prairie-style home. Frank Lloyd Wright is the acknowledged master of the Prairie house, one of the few indigenous American styles.
Families who enjoy attracting and watching wild birds will particularly appreciate those wide eaves. Feeders hung there are safe from the rain and all but the trickiest squirrels.
Immediately after entering, you pass double doors that lead into what could be a dining room, parlor, or home office. A conveniently located half bathroom is directly ahead, bedrooms are to the left, and the great room is ahead and slightly to the right.
The great room fills the heart of the home and is open to the kitchen and nook as well. In the G-shaped kitchen, an array of counters, cupboards, and built-in appliances wrap around all four sides. From at or near the kitchen sink, you can serve informal meals and snacks to family and friends seated along the raised eating bar, enjoy watching flames dance in the gas fireplace, or keep track of activities on the partially covered patio.
A good-sized utility room is right around the corner, along with indoor access to a two-car garage. The bench by the door is designed for shucking off messy footgear, which can then be stowed out of sight beneath the seat. A shelved storage closet lines the hallway leading to a guest suite, which could do double duty as a home office or hobby room.
In the spacious owners' suite, amenities include a walk-in shower, private toilet, two vanities, a deep walk-in closet, and direct patio access. The Crownpoint's other two bedrooms share a bathroom that has a combination tub and shower.
