Berniece has something for everyone
Equally well adapted to meeting the needs of a family with older children, or empty nesters that like to keep space available for grandchildren and other overnight guests, the sprawling country-style Berniece (403-02) has something for everyone.
Placement of the master suite on the main floor provides privacy while the kids are still at home, and allows the homeowners to confine their living to the ground floor after the kids move on.
Luxury is the name of this master suite. Amenities include a private spa, oversized shower, double vanities and a long, L-shaped walk-in closet with an abundance of shelf space. The sleeping area is large enough to accommodate a desk and a couple of easy chairs, in addition to a king-sized bed. French doors open onto a covered porch, which wraps nearly around the entire home. A strategically placed hammock can heighten the enjoyment of a warm summer's day.
A vaulted ceiling adds to the sense of overall spaciousness that pervades the rambling family room/nook/kitchen combination. With a fireplace for heat and lots of windows to let in the light, many hours of pleasure can be had here. A U-shaped open stairway juts out into the room, providing a perfect vantage point for viewing the scene below. Place a wide-screen television on a swivel here, and it can be seen from anywhere in the room. The open space beneath the landing can house an entertainment center or family library.
The open kitchen is roomy enough for multiple cooks to combine their efforts without getting in each other's way. A vegetable sink is located on the central eating bar, a large walk-in pantry, with shelves galore, is off to the side, and a utility room with deep sink and built-in ironing board is close by. A half-bath with shower is tucked into the corner. There is access to the two-car garage, allowing easy entry with armloads of groceries.
