Two-storey homes, square metre for square metre, provide the most living space on a property, and this three-bedroom family home is no exception.
Entry is through a covered porch with a veranda to the left. Once in the foyer, double doors open to a den, with the U-shaped staircase to the second floor beyond. A window above the stairwell will let in lots of natural light.
The great room, separated from the foyer by an archway, has a lofty sloped ceiling that is open to the floor above. A gas fireplace is flanked by entertainment units, and large windows look onto a covered patio at the back of the home.
From the dining area, access to the covered deck is easy, through sliding glass doors. A prep island divides the kitchen from the dining area, which has large windows overlooking the back garden.
Natural light will enter the kitchen through windows over the double sink, which is set into a corner at an angle. The U-shaped counter configuration will provide adequate working space as well as efficiency. A walk-in pantry will offer extra storage space.
Across from the powder room located near the foyer is a handy coat closet. Another closet is included in the laundry room, which has access to the double garage, large enough to include a workshop.
Upstairs, the master suite looks out to the back garden. The generous en-suite includes a soaker tub as well as double basins and a shower stall. The walk-in closet will be roomy enough for a couple’s clothing and accessories.
The second and third bedrooms share a three-piece bath. A linen closet is located outside the entrance to the third bedroom.
Part of the second floor is open to the great room below and is railed for safety.
On the outside, the home is clad in horizontal siding, with stucco accents and features a 3/12 roof pitch. Pilasters with stone bases mark the entry and veranda, and stone accents flank the two garage doors.
This home measures 42 feet wide by 58 feet deep, for a total of 2,079 square feet of living space, not counting the unfinished basement included with the plans. Ceilings rise to nine feet throughout the main floor, except where otherwise indicated.
