Family living flourishes in the light-filled great room, where windows fill most of one wall. The kitchen is open to the great room across an eating bar with a built-in range, and the dining area is off to the left. A gas fireplace offers colorful warmth when skies turn dark. On sunny days, meals can easily move out onto the covered patio.

Westfall is updated ranch-style homeRanch-style homes have been enduringly popular in North America for several decades, and the Westfall is a prime example. The lap siding’s crisp horizontal lines frame and underscore two sets of street-facing front windows, while vertical lines front the garage under a high row of sparkling windows. Double doors in the foyer open into a den. Its location just inside the entry makes it well-suited for use as a home office. The natural light spilling in through the front windows is muted slightly by the recessed porch. An opening on the opposite side of the foyer leads to the owners’ suite. A pocket door provides separation from the bathroom, which has a shower, private toilet, and double vanity, and links up with a roomy walk-in closet. Family living will flourish in the light-filled great room at the home’s rear, where windows fill most of one wall, next to a gas fireplace. The kitchen is open to the great room across a flush eating bar with a built-in range. Cabinets, a step-in pantry, and appliances span two walls. The dining area is off to the left, partially separated by a peninsular conversation bar. This counter can double as a buffet, when serving up festive meals. An atrium door at the juncture of the great room and dining area opens onto a covered patio, which could be screened, if desired. A short hallway across the great room leads to secondary bedrooms flanking a bathroom with a combination tub and shower. Laundry appliances are located in the utility room between the den and the kitchen. Linked with the Westfall’s two-car garage, it makes unloading groceries safe and convenient any time of the day or night, and could also serve as a mudroom.
