The Hendricks 3 (402-64) is a single-level, 1,508-square-foot, two-bedroom, and two-and-a-half-bath home. The exterior style is contemporary ranch, with a pleasing combination of brick and wood.
The main entry has a covered porch supported by two attractive architectural columns. A guest closet is conveniently located in the entry, which splits in two directions.
To the right, we move past the gas fireplace, touching the great room, going toward a comfortable dining room, which touches the kitchen. The U-shaped kitchen is efficient, with ample space, including a pantry and garden window looking out over the front landscape. A nearby utility room, with access to the two-car garage, allows soiled clothes and muddy shoes to be dropped off before entering the house. Groceries may be brought directly into the kitchen from the garage without concern for the weather.
If we had gone left in the entry, we would also catch a corner of the great room on our way to the sleeping area. As we go down the short hall, we pass a full bathroom and linen closet on one side, and a good-sized second bedroom on the other. At the end of the hall is the large master suite, with private bathroom and walk-in closet. This arrangement is ideal for a couple with young children. It affords privacy, while still being close enough to supervise the children.
The heart of this home, however, is the centrally located great room. Here family and friends can gather in the warmth of the fireplace to watch videos, listen to music or just enjoy the company.
Located on the side of the garage is 236 square feet of space that may be utilized as an extra storage area, or for the do-it-yourself person in the house, a shop.
