This contemporary home blends cottage style with Craftsman features. One of our designer / project managers started with a plan and moved almost every wall. The result is an open concept plan featuring spaces that flow together but are easily delineated.

She wanted room large enough to bring the family in or host a church event but yet offer quieter spaces where guests can have separate conversations.

Ever the pragmatist, she wanted a dual-purpose entry that didn’t waste space. Thus, the large open foyer flows into the dining room. When the leaf is in the table, the foyer will double as extra room to easily move around the chairs.

You can see her touch most prominently in the kitchen. If you’re a messy cook who still wants to be near the action, you’ll appreciate the partial bi-level island with an upper end that hides the sink without hiding the wanna-be-chef.

The lower half of the island flows into the nearby sitting area and offers space to spread out on a baking spree or allow others to sit and visit while keeping the cook company. Whatever your vision, you’ll appreciate this space that’s versatile enough for both quiet time and family connection.

The walk-in pantry is situated under the stairs with an entrance that camouflages its existence. You could win a game of hide-and-seek with this surprise layout. The dedicated drink bar was designed by coffee lovers with a mini-fridge underneath and the microwave close by.

When the gathering is over, it’s time to retreat into the owners’ side of the home. The entry to the master bath is framed with a sliding barn door. Melt into the soaking tub set into a cozy alcove or step around the corner into the oversized two-person shower. The large walk-in closet is just steps away and offers convenient passage into the laundry room.

The other three rooms are as versatile as the rest of the house. On the first floor, a second bedroom and full bath provides space for a guest bedroom, a room to care for those who cared for you all those years, or an office close to all the action. With double sliding doors on the entrance to this space, it can easily be sectioned off as its own second master suite.

The upstairs offers two bedrooms as well as space for a bonus room if desired. Give your teens their own space or do as this couple did and create a mancave media room. The large upstairs bath ensures everyone from teens still at home to college students returning or future grandchildren have plenty of room.

Our designer chose a muted gray palette with touches of stained accents, but we will work with you to choose a color palette that beckons you home. The subcontractors we work with can accomplish any vision, including glazing your cabinetry for that one-of-a-kind effect.

Our designer also incorporated many of the latest offerings from our entire suite of smart home upgrades as well as accent lighting, toekick vacuums, and a house that responds to verbal commands.
