Cozy Lone Rock exudes bungalow charm
Shingles and stone provide eye-catching textural variety to the Lone Rock, a bungalow designed for construction on a lot that slopes down at the rear. Craftsman windows on all sides add their characteristic sparkle.
To enter, you climb a few wide steps. These lead to a welcoming covered porch with stone veneer bases accented by tapered columns that are linked by nostalgic wooden railings.
The entry opens directly into a vaulted great room with a masonry fireplace. A wide arched opening at the rear leads to a vaulted country kitchen that expands out on the right. The mud hall straight ahead leads past a storage closet and a coat closet before opening onto a covered porch with a sun porch to the left. Basement stairs are nearby.
Counters and cupboards wrap around three sides of the kitchen, which is richly windowed on two sides. Near the apex of the vaulting, two transom windows crown the four lower-level windows. The informal dining area is completely open to the kitchen, and a sliding glass door opens onto the side deck that links with the front porch.
A vaulted owners' suite with a full bathroom fills out the left side of the home along with the den. The small powder room across the hall is convenient to the kitchen and family room as well as the rear porches.
While most of the home is on one level, a bedroom, bathroom and spacious utility room are located in the finished half of the Lone Rock's daylight basement below. As space needs expand, the owners might want to finish the other half. A convenient pet door accesses the utility room there. The downstairs bedroom has a roomy walk-in closet and offers direct side patio access.
