Rock Creek II is a spacious townhome
Don't be fooled by appearances. The Rock Creek II is a town home that looks small from the front, but extends quite a ways back behind its charming front facade. A stucco exterior and gracefully curved entry arch give this contemporary plan a decidedly Mediterranean look. The home would be an equally good fit in a Southwestern or Florida neighborhood.
A welcoming front porch spans the front, next to the entry arch. Double doors off the porch open into what could be a home office, study, or your choice. Natural light spills into the foyer through a sidelight, panes at the top of the door, and a wide window on the right. An entry bench or a hutch nestles into the opposite wall.
Just past a flight of stairs, the entry opens out into a large space that comprises the dining room, living room and kitchen. A large work island rimmed by an eating bar helps delineate the L-shaped kitchen on the left side of this spacious area. Flames dancing in the fireplace can be enjoyed from anywhere in the room.
From the dining area or kitchen, you can walk out onto a small, partially covered patio, which is also close to the owners' suite. An abundance of light washes into the utility room through one of the inner windows that outline the patio. A door opposite the windows offers direct access to the two-car garage.
Amenities in the owners' suite include a deep walk-in closet, a double vanity, and a separately enclosed toilet and shower area.
Two more bedrooms, a three-section bathroom, and a loft are upstairs in the Rock Creek II. The loft overlooks the entry and is in an ideal location for a shared library/study area.
