Compact Rexburg has plenty to please
Lofty vaulted ceilings in the wide open family living area make the Rexburg seem much larger than its compact 1560 square feet. With overall dimensions of 50 feet by 50 feet, this plan fits easily on a standard city lot.
Decorative brickwork, front gables and arched, mutipaned windows add visual appeal to the exterior. Natural light spills into the vaulted entry through a wide sidelight and an arched transom. Inside, the ceiling slopes up, away from the door, to its apex in the living room.
Two wide windows at the rear, and another in the dining room, let in an abundance of natural light. One of the windows slides open to access a small deck. The kitchen has a flat, 8-foot ceiling and is separated from the dining room and living room by an L-shaped counter with an eating bar spanning its truncated outer corner. Perched on a stool at the eating bar, you can munch down quick meals, or hang out and chat with whoever's fixing food or cleaning up in the kitchen.
One of the most unique features of this home is a huge pantry, larger than pantries in most homes twice this size. It's roomy enough to store a summer's worth of home-canned produce, plus a large supply of staple foods. Utilities are close at hand, in a pass-through space to the garage. It comes outfitted with a long counter for folding clothes.
Features in the master suite include a roomy walk-in closet and a private bathroom with double vanity and oversized shower. The vaulted front bedroom could be used as an office or study.
