Cushman takes full advantage of compact lots
The Cushman (404-16) is a two-story home designed to take full advantage of a compact city lot. By working with angles, the designer has created an attractive side yard that allows full utilization of an area that usually lies idle. Creatively landscaped or outfitted with pots of herbs and flowers, this alcove becomes a park-like outdoor getaway.
While the two-car garage sits squarely on the lot, far enough back from the street to meet setback requirements; the living room is placed at an angle and is much closer to the street.
When sunny skies and warm air beckon, access to the out-of-doors is easy. A wide deck wraps around the side and back of the home. It is accessible through sliding glass doors in the dining room and kitchen. This feature is doubly attractive to families who enjoy eating outside.
In the center of the spacious kitchen is a work island/eating bar combination, which adds to the already generous counter space. The kitchen has both a broom closet and a pantry. A large utility room is adjacent to the eating nook, which allows for dealing with the laundry while working at other tasks in the kitchen.
Bright and open to the second floor, the entryway seems larger than it really is. Plants will flourish on top of the entry closet, bathed in light from a window at the top of the stairs.
Upstairs, there is a den, master suite and second bedroom. Like the room below, the master suite is set at an angle. It has a large walk-in closet, wet bar and a private deck.
