Happy Holidays from Associated Designs!
Interesting roof lines, with gables at the front and left side, add street appeal to the Austin, a compact single-story home packed with features not often found in small homes.
Vaulted ceilings, for instance, and not just in the living room. You'll also find them in the front bedroom, the master suite and the skylit dining room/family room. Plant shelves in the high-ceilinged entry form arched entrances to the living room and family room.
Just inside the entry is a uniquely designed two-section, dual-access bathroom. With the pocket door to the tub section closed, it looks like a small powder room. But with the door opened, it becomes a full bathroom that serves the two front bedrooms.
The kitchen is large. Contemporary amenities include: a pantry, a desk, an appliance center, built-in oven and microwave, and plenty of counter and cupboard space. The cooktop is built into a long combination work island/eating bar. The adjacent utility room, directly accessible from both the kitchen and the garage, has a counter for folding clothes.
A dual vanity, a walk-in closet and an oversized shower are among the luxury features in the Austin's owners' suite. French doors open onto a wide deck that has a planter box in the far corner. If the home is built without a basement, the walk-in closet would be enlarged and the living room gain some space as well.
