Halterman's country-style charm appealing

Brick accents, a front-facing gable, and a railed, wrap-around covered porch add to the country-style charm of the Halterman, a medium-size home that centers on a large family room. Quiet rooms—the parlor and master suite—are to the right of the family room, children’s bedrooms to the left. Range and oven are built into an eating bar that faces into the family room. The room is easily large enough for a couple of couches, a media center, the family computer, or what have you. A woodstove could also be placed here, if desired. Being so centrally located, it would radiate heat to all of the other rooms.

Generous counter space lines the sides of the dog-leg-shaped kitchen. A walk-in pantry is at one end and a large eating nook at the other. The kitchen sink faces a wide window that overlooks the covered porch and allows you to see who’s coming up the walkway to the front door. The nook’s garage access is convenient for unloading groceries and other supplies.

Bay windows wrap around the front of a formal living room or parlor. This room is vaulted, with still more light coming in from the gable overhead. Despite the many windows, the gable and the covered porch at a minimum here, mute direct sunlight, so it won’t fade curtains and furniture.

A master suite, with French doors opening on the deck, dominates the right wing. Its huge walk-in closet has several walls of shelves along with the typical rod and shelf sections. This closet offers no excuse for disorganized clothing and shoe storage.

Bedrooms two and three share a bathroom and are close to the utility room as well. Extra space at the back of the garage could be used for a workbench or storage.
