Handsome Huntington is cozy and bright
The Huntington's wrap-around covered porch puts the average covered porch to shame. Handsome exposed timbers support and highlight its lofty central gable, and the whole works is supported by tapered bases made of stone. Custom-crafted windows, horizontal siding and shake shingles all add to the visual appeal.
Entering, you step into a naturally bright and lofty two-story foyer. A half-round crowns the upper trio of windows and an elegant dining room is on the right. Stairs on the left ascend to the secondary bedrooms and a wide vaulted lounge that overlooks the entry and great room. It provides access to both large bedrooms plus a sky-lit bathroom. If desired, it could be outfitted as a library/study area/computer station.
A bank of windows, stacked three high at center, fills most of the vaulted great room's rear wall. Flames in the wide hearthed stone fireplace nestled into an alcove on the left can also be enjoyed from the kitchen and nook. The entry to a vaulted sunroom is right next to the fireplace, entered through a glass door. Double doors there open onto a railed balcony.
The kitchen is large and open, with plenty of cupboard and counter space. Standing at the sink in the work island, you look out over a long raised eating bar into the great room. The vaulted nook is large enough to house a good-sized table, plus an assortment of potted plants. A pantry, utilities, and bathroom are mere steps away, where they are also linked to the garage.
The Huntington's luxurious master suite fills most of the left wing. Amenities include twin walk-in closets, a spa tub, dual vanity, private toilet, and direct access to the sunroom.
