The Association (403-15) is a small home; a little less than 1,600 square feet, but it does not feel small if you are standing in any of the communal living areas. And it’s naturally bright. Every room has a large window, with the exception of the living room, which has four.
A lofty vaulted ceiling enhances the feeling of openness in the living room, while a fireplace tucked into an alcove adds warmth and coziness. Tile or brick paves the hearth. The fireplace can be constructed with a mantel for display of favorite family photos and mementos.
Seated in the dining room, you can’t see the clutter that may have accumulated in the kitchen, a desirable setup for formal and festive occasions where a great deal of preparation precedes the meal.
Kitchen and nook are delightfully bright and spacious. A garden window fills and expands the entire wall in front of the sink, and more natural light streams in through a wide skylight over the sink. Counters span the room on four sides. One segment is raised to serve as an eating bar, and the dishwasher built into it is raised too, for ease of access.
Sliding glass doors in the sunny nook open onto a patio as large or small as the owners wish to make it. A deep pantry provides generous storage space for canned goods and other staple foods. Utilities are close enough to allow someone to cook dinner and process a couple of loads of laundry at the same time.
A door to the garage allows you to unload groceries and bring them directly into the kitchen. The two-car garage is deep, with plenty of extra storage space at the back, and a workbench nestled into a windowed alcove at the front.
Closets line the hallway that leads to two secondary bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Luxuries in the master suite include an oversized shower, dual vanity and large walk-in closet.
