Tiled or brick, the Wester’s (403-16) odd-angled entry is lofty, practical and appealing. Muddy footgear will not do any damage here that can’t be easily remedied. A large coat closet is just the first example of the generous storage space found throughout.
Tile flows around and past the closet on two sides, extending into both the living room and the family kitchen in the form of twin hearths for the see-through fireplace. Vaulted ceilings create a sense of openness in the entry, all of the central living areas, and the master suite.
Dining room and living room flow together and are richly illuminated by natural light that floods in through front walls that are more glass than anything else. A wide bay expands the living room.
But the family kitchen is the heart of the home. Most of the time, family and friends will congregate there, rather than in the more formal rooms. A combination work island and raised eating bar adds counter space, increases storage capacity, and serves as a natural place to lean your elbows while chatting with the cook.
Windows rim most of the rear wall, facing onto a railed deck. African violets and other small tropical plants thrive in the garden window in front of the kitchen sink. Built-in appliances include range and oven, and a dishwasher that’s raised to cut down on back strain. A large walk-in pantry provides plenty of space for families that like to keep a good stock of staple food supplies on hand.
Another long closet, for brooms and the like, separates the informal living area from the formal. A linen closet and a small storage closet line the hallway that leads to the secondary bedrooms and the pass-through utility room. Yet more cabinets are in the utility room, along with a deep sink and pull-down ironing board.
Luxury amenities in the master suite include a large walk-in closet, a TV shelf over the closet, and a second lay set in a long vanity outside the enclosed bathroom.
