The exterior of the Kinsale blends a classic trio of shingles, lap siding, and stone together to create an eye-catching Craftsman-inspired exterior. Tapered columns with stone bases frame the cozy front covered porch where a porch swing or patio set would be a charming addition for those who love to catch up with neighbors as they stroll by.

Stepping through the front door, the entry offers soaring 2-story ceilings creating a grand and welcoming first impression. Directly off the entry, French doors open to the den. This space offers homeowners flexibility depending on their lifestyle or life-stage. The proximity to the front door makes the den an ideal place to set up a home office. Larger families or those who entertain frequently may want to furnish this space as a fourth bedroom or guest room. At the end of the entry, the floor plan offers three choices.

To the right, is the owners’ suite whose location on the main floor is a trending and desired floor plan feature.  With dual walk-in closets and a private en-suite the owners’ suite is a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day.

Straight ahead, the floor plan opens to the vaulted great room. A rich display of windows along the back wall floods the room with natural light. And when the days grow short and dark the fireplace takes over, filling the room with light and warmth. A ceiling transition helps to provide some feeling of separation between the dining room and the living area. A sliding glass door extends the dining room to the covered patio for outdoor living on warm summer days. Between the dining room and the kitchen is an island with eating bar. The well-appointed kitchen offers a corner walk-in pantry along with ample counter space. Great rooms have been a highly sought-after floor plan feature for years now. Their informal nature allows people and conversations to flow freely and no one feels left out.

Back at the entry hall, turning left will bring you to the stairs that run up to the second floor. On the upper level are two additional bedrooms which share a compartmentalized bathroom that offers dual vanities, a separate shower, and soaking tub. Extended over the garage is a bonus room. For families needing remote work or learning space the bonus room has a cozy corner for a built-in desk. Steps away is a beverage bar for those who might want to furnish the bonus room as a family or game room.

Other floor plan features of note are the main floor laundry room located between the kitchen and garage. Across from the laundry room is a half bathroom and drop zone for organizing the family electronics, bags, shoes, and coats.

The Kinsale is created by Associated Designs, Inc.’s talented team of residential home designers.
