Bright Montrose is a spacious townhome
Bold stuccoed columns support the gently arched opening that frames the entry of the Montrose, a large contemporary townhome. A railed covered porch spanning the rest of the front facade can comfortably shelter a suite of wicker or other outdoor furniture.
Entering, you step into a foyer that opens out into the living room on the right. A small, conveniently placed bathroom hides behind the pocket door on the left side of the foyer. Stairs to the second floor are right around the corner.
A fireplace serves as a warm and cheerful focal point in the living room, which is completely open to the dining area. Natural light washes in through high windows that flank the fireplace. The dining area is open to the C-shaped kitchen, and offers direct access to a covered patio.
Kitchen workers need never feel left out or walled in. One slightly wider peninsular counter section fronts on both the living and dining rooms. This area can be outfitted as an eating bar, and double as a buffet for larger scale entertaining. One alternate floor plan angles that counter in and seats the sink there, facing into the spacious gathering area. Another angles it in, but leaves the sink facing out a side window.
The owners’ suite is at the rear of the ground floor, as is a pass-through utility room that connects with the Montrose’s two-car garage. Two more bedrooms, a roomy loft, and a two-section bathroom are upstairs. The loft overlooks the foyer, at the top of the second floor landing. This window-bright loft space makes an ideal location for a shared study and/or office space, and could easily house two or more desks and computers, plus an extensive library.
