Shop area of Borges provides place for mower, tools
The Borges (405-39HP67) has been designed to fit on the narrower, deeper lots that are becoming more common. Because space has become precious, the Borges is compact in size yet spacious in living area. The home has 2,032 square feet, with a bay window to give the exterior a more country look.
The two-car garage has a shop on the left side, with double doors for storing the lawnmower, wheelbarrow, or any other tools. The door from the garage opens into the utility room. There is a sink available for clean up.
The entrance of the Borges has a covered porch. To the left of the entry is the kitchen, with a huge walk-in pantry. Over the sink is a garden window, supplying the kitchen with light and warmth. The cooking island contains an eating bar and there is a compact built-in desk. The nook has a large bay window with a view of the outdoors.
A formal dining room opens onto the patio through glass doors. Adjacent to the dining area is a fireplace facing into the living room. A bay window that could contain a window seat provides light, along with the large window facing the patio. The master suite opens off the living room, with a corner walk-in closet, two linen closets, a separate sink area, and dual bathrooms. There is a tub in one part, while the other has a sink and shower. Sola-tubes have been used to provide natural lighting.
Bedroom 2 and 3 have access to a full bath. Sola-tube lighting has been provided in this bath also. A large closet along with a linen closet is located off the bath area, available to the two bedrooms.
The Borges would be great for the young family, looking for more room, or the empty nesters that wish to lower their square footage, but still have a gracious home with open living space.
