This three-bedroom, one-and-a-half storey family home, with its louvered shutters on one upstairs window and carved wooden braces on the gables, wins extra points for curb appeal. Entry is through a covered porch and into a compact foyer, with a powder room across from the convenient coat closet on the right. A den, with a closet and French doors onto the porch, can double either as a library, guest room or home office. The family area includes a spacious great room, with a built-in gas fireplace and sliding doors that open onto a sundeck, which flows into the open-plan dining area and kitchen. The dining room’s wide windows overlook the back garden. A work island with a raised eating bar, the perfect spot for snacks and casual meals, separates the dining room from the kitchen. The kitchen enjoys plenty of counter space, and boasts a walk-through pantry, with access to the laundry room, where a handy cupboard provides storage for off-season clothing and gear. The laundry room also has access to the double garage, which is roomy enough for a workshop or storage. The master suite, in an unusual touch, is reached via the kitchen/dining room. Truly private, it features its own linen closet and generous walk-in closet. In the four-piece ensuite, which includes a soaker tub and shower, the WC and shower are partially separated to ease the morning “rush-hour.” On the second floor, up a U-shaped stairway, are two more bedrooms, served by a central three-piece bathroom that contains a linen closet. The home’s exterior is stucco, with both painted and natural-wood trim, with stone accents. All interior ceilings are nine feet high. This home measures 42 feet wide by 66 feet, six inches deep, for a total of 2,214 square feet. An unfinished basement is included in the plans.
