The plans for this home include an unfinished basement, which could serve has extra storage space, more room for a growing family or a secondary suite for revenue.
The covered entry leads into a foyer with a coat closet ahead on the right. Across from the closet is an L-shaped stairway to the unfinished basement, separated from the great room by a half wall.
The great room, with sliding glass doors to a covered deck, includes a gas fireplace, making the room a magnet for family activities in the cooler months. The covered deck will be ideal for al fresco meals and year-round grilling.
A large window in the open plan dining area looks out to the back garden. An optional buffet offers extra space for serving and storage.
The kitchen is divided from the great room and dining area by a work island with double sinks and space for the dishwasher. This will allow the after-meal clean-up crew to watch TV while they work. They will also appreciate the walk-in pantry and the L-shaped counter configuration, which will save steps.
Off the kitchen is the laundry room, which includes a shelf for sorting and folding. A coat closet will provide space for gear, and the doorway to the double garage means the laundry room can double as a mud room.
The master bedroom is reached through a square archway from the great room. Overlooking the back garden, it includes an ensuite as well as a spacious walk-in closet. The ensuite boasts a soaker tub in its own bayed-out niche, as well as a shower stall. The double basins will ease the morning rush-hour.
The two secondary bedrooms, also reached through a square archway, share a three-piece bathroom. Bedroom No. 3 has a built-in desk and bedroom No. 4 features an extra-wide window sill.
A linen closet is located near the entrance to the master bedroom.
Exterior finishes include stucco with vertical Hardie Board and stone accents. The modern mono-sloped roof adds dramatic curb appeal. The stone pilasters that flank the entrance echo the stone work on the other side of the garage door.
This home measures 40 feet wide and 65 feet, four inches deep. Ceilings are all nine feet high. Living space, not including the unfinished basement, totals 1,646 square feet.
