This charming two-story home
looks deceptively small from the outside; inside, the rooms are large, bright
and airy. The house, built post-World War II, has many large windows and is
enlivened by the clean lines of modern furnishings. The home has an open floor
plan, with one room flowing graciously into the next.
A flagstone entryway leads to
the living room. Original hardwood floors in both the living and dining rooms
have been refinished under the direction of the current owners. Gracing the
walls of all the rooms and adding to the charm of the house are paintings by
one of the owners.
To enlarge the home, the
original garage was made into a step-down family room. Beyond the family room
is a garden room, inspired by the atriums of roman times. Light streams through
a contiguous ceiling/wall window, to dance on the tile floor below.
The kitchen is exceptionally
large and has a breakfast area as well. The owners say that it was a veritable
dungeon when they moved in, as all surfaces were of dark colors. Contrasting
light colors have been added and a large sliding glass door leads to a pleasant
flagstone patio complete with pergola.
This home is situated on a
double lot that has been beautifully landscaped. The backyard plantings were
designed for privacy, with delicate fir trees screening the patio. The large
lot and many plantings provide an enticing environment for wildlife; the owners
have had the pleasure of watching birds and bunny rabbits growing up and
sharing the yard.
