Lannie old-fashioned out, contemporary in
A wide country style porch, complete with railings and posts, gives the Lannie (401-35) the appeal of an old-style country home. However, the interior of this two-story home has a contemporary flavor.
Just inside the front door, a U-shaped stairway, with polished colonial wood dowel posts and banister, leads upstairs, visually separating the dining room from the family room. Due to its unconventional placement in the center of the room, a bridge at the top connects the stairway to the two upstairs bedrooms. Those two bedrooms share a bath. An extra vanity, which provides make-up space outside the bathroom, will be a sure hit with teens.
The stairs and bridge create lofty perches for watching and joining the action below, and are great for family announcements. For relaxing after dinner, the sunken parlor allows for private conversations or meditation.
The arched entry to the dining room from the kitchen makes it easy for the cook of the house to serve those formal meals. The kitchen, nook, and family room run together. French doors fill the family room with light and offer easy access to the deck for leisurely meals outside when the weather is inviting. A colonial fireplace for family photos and heirlooms is located off the large family room.
The study offers privacy to a small home business or the studious teen of the house.
The master suite has a large walk-in closet and an entrance, through French doors, to the deck for those sunny afternoons. The master suite has a private bath. The amenities include a custom tub, shower, and his and her vanities, that provide enough space for putting on make-up and shaving.
