A simple yet striking combination of lap siding and batt and board grace the front of the Chehalis a ranch house plan with Craftsman influences. Front facing gables and knee brace detailing add to the charm. Slender posts frame the front door and mark the boundary of the covered porch.
Inside the entry is spacious. Vaulted ceilings add to the grandeur. Just steps away is a nook with space for a bench and coat hooks. A drop zone is just around the corner to help keep electronics and keys organized. Off the entry a set of double doors open to the first of three bedrooms. This room boasts a private bathroom and if three bedrooms are not needed as sleeping areas, this room would make an ideal home office with its proximity to the front door.
The core of the home is filled with the great room. An open arrangement of the living room, dining room, and kitchen. This informal layout has held popular status with homeowners for several years and allows for conversations and people to flow freely. Those preparing snacks or holiday meals in the kitchen will not feel left out of the festivities. When the weather starts to turn, the gas fireplace in the great room will keep the space warm and cheery. Just a few steps away from the dining room is a wine room which pairs perfectly with the dry beverage bar in the dining room. The well-appointed and spacious kitchen boasts an island with prep sink and a large walk-in pantry.
Off the dining room is another of the Chehalis’s comfortable bedrooms. Like the suite towards the front of the home, this room also boasts a private full bathroom.
The owners’ suite is well separated from the other bedrooms. Filling the right side of the floor plan and accessed off a separate hallway that starts at the entry, the owners’ suite is a quiet retreat. Features include a large walk-in closet and private bathroom with dual sinks and walk-in shower.
This one story floor plan is comfortable year round and offers homeowner’s a design that is well suited for holiday entertaining.
