Cogswell's design helps it fit sloping lots
The Cogswell (401-57), an average sized home at 1,914 square feet is designed for a rear sloping lot. Keeping the master bedroom on the main floor was achieved, allowing privacy from the other two remaining bedrooms. The master suite has a large bathroom with an oversized shower and a walk-in closet. A large window overlooks the backyard.
People who enjoy the warmth and colorful flames of a wood fire will love the see-through fireplace, equally visible from the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Ceramic tile, which wraps around the hearth, serves as spark-proof flooring while visually unifying the group living area. The same tile covers the entryway moisture-proof qualities will come into play in these heavy traffic zones. Being vaulted and with the glow of the fire, the living room will become a restful room to guests and family alike.
Built-in utilities are close to kitchen, garage, master suite, and the stairs to the basement bedrooms. A half-bath is also centrally located. The kitchen with a built-in dishwasher, range and oven, and a corner pantry surround the nook, ideal for those morning coffee breaks. For those formal times, there is a vaulted dining room in the left rear corner. It has sliding glass doors opening onto a wood deck.
The Cogswell is a two-story hillside home. The vaulted ceilings, along with additional clerestory windows, create a more spacious feel than dimensions seem to dictate.
Downstairs the two bedrooms share a bath with the large family room. Plenty of storage area for all sorts of items is available downstairs. The large family room has sliding glass door that open to the backyard. This is an ideal room for the TV or for games the family enjoys.
