Sweeping roof lines, a dramatic arched transom entry and a smooth stucco exterior contribute to the sophisticated appeal of this compact, open-plan home. Inside the covered entrance, the large foyer presents a view of the great room with its appealing corner fireplace – just part of an exceptional family area that has all the elements necessary for today’s casual lifestyle. An oversized sun deck, accessed from the family room, adds outdoor living space. This deck is partly covered by the roofline above, a bonus on rainy days. The dining area is designed for formal or informal gatherings. It has a convenient buffet space and natural light will flood in through a wall of windows. In the kitchen area, a central island holds a double sink as well as the dishwasher. The raised eating bar along one side of the island makes an ideal place to sit for a quick breakfast or mid-morning coffee. A pass-through between the kitchen and the laundry room is large enough to accommodate a second fridge or a freezer. The laundry room leads to the double garage, providing a convenient route for unloading groceries from the car. The master bedroom suite is privately located at the rear of the house and has a door that opens to the sun deck. A large walk-in closet holds his and hers clothes while a five-piece bathroom creates a home-spa experience. The skylit hallway in the sleeping wing also leads to a three-piece bathroom shared by the two secondary bedrooms. High ceilings add to the airy, relaxed interior of this innovative design. The home measures 52 feet, 6 inches wide and 52 feet deep, for a total of 1,485 square feet of living space, plus an unfinished basement.
