Lofty lines draw eyes to the Dawson
The soaring roof lines that draw eyes to the Dawson carry over as interesting vaulted ceilings inside. This contemporary stucco home has more than 2,300 square feet of living space, most of it devoted to family living areas and gathering spaces.
An arched opening leads from the high-ceilinged foyer to a family room that flows together with the kitchen and nook. Windows fill much of the rear wall, and a fireplace provides warmth and light when the skies turn gray.
The nook is doubly blessed, with windows on the side as well. A long eating counter offers additional seating for eating or chatting with whoever is working in the kitchen. The walk-in pantry adds to the already abundant storage, while the large work island augments counter space.
In the dining room, a coffered ceiling creates a sense of stateliness. The built-in china hutch and buffet is more than 8 feet in length. A vaulted ceiling and boxed bay window expand the volume of the living room.
Storage closets line the hallway leading to the bedroom wing. A skylight brightens an octagonal opening, where doors open into the bedrooms and utility room. Master suite amenities include a vaulted ceiling, huge walk-in closet, and a private bathroom with a naturally illuminated spa tub, and double vanity. Toilet and shower can be separately enclosed.
A study and two bedrooms face the street. The study could be a home office, redesigned to include an exterior entrance, if desired. Direct entry from the Dawson's three-car garage into the utility room comes in handy for dealing with muddy footgear, or paws.
