Informal Emmett Valley can be adaptable
The Emmett Valley (404-46) is a compact, informal home with an open spacious feeling. Designed to meet the needs of a single person, or a couple with no children, this single level plan could also be adapted to accommodate a wheelchair. Most of the exterior is lap siding with stucco relief trim.
A small porch bounded by a wooden railing adds curb appeal. Inside, slender windows along with the oval window in the door, brighten the entry. A doublewide closet is around the corner to the right.
Straight-ahead is the comfortable great room and a large bright kitchen. Three wide windows fill most of the back wall and more light spills down from above through four rectangular skylights. A sliding glass door opens onto the large railed deck that is also accessible from the master suite.
In the great room, a hearth of brick and tile transects one corner, creating a warm focal point. The large, open kitchen fills the other corner. A raised eating bar is all that separates the dining area from the kitchen.
Friends and neighbors will enjoy lingering here to chat while the owners deal with food preparation and clean up. The dishwasher is raised to minimize bending. Counter space is ample, and a large walk-in pantry augments the available storage capacity.
Utilities are just a few steps away in a pass-through utility room, complete with cabinets and a counter for folding clothes. The garage, too, has built-in cabinets and a long L-shaped workbench.
The isolated master suite provides complete privacy in an attractive atmosphere. Amenities include a walk-in closet, twin basins, separately enclosed shower and toilet. The guestroom and office are at the other end of the house. The guest bedroom has a set of built-in bookshelves. The office can also be used for guests.
