Ranch-style Eastport is open and inviting

The Eastport’s nostalgic handrail-rimmed porch creates just the right mix of openness and privacy. Family members can relax here while enjoying the passing scene. Or by lying back in a lounge chair, they can be invisible during an afternoon nap.

Window-bright gathering spaces fill the core of this contemporary ranch-style home. Its vaulted entry is open to a vaulted dining room. Muted light washes in through the wide front window there. The ceiling slopes up to its apex along the center line of the home, before sloping down over the great room and kitchen at the rear. The vaulted family room to the left is open to the great room, though partially obscured by a two-sided masonry fireplace.

A raised eating bar rims the long multi-angled counter that bounds the vaulted kitchen. Cabinets are above, and more cabinets fill all of one wall and part of another. Standing at the built-in range, you face out into the great room and dining area. You can keep an eye on the deck from there, as you can from the kitchen sink. A bayed eating nook expands both the great room and kitchen, while a centrally located work island anchors the kitchen’s center.

The roomy pantry nestled into one corner is close to both the mini-bathroom and a pass-through utility room that links to the two-car garage. Secondary bedrooms and a full bathroom are also off of the same hallway.

Double doors next to the Eastport’s entry open into a large, well-isolated owners’ suite. Amenities include a wide bay window, which could be outfitted as a window seat, and a deep walk-in closet. The deluxe bathroom boasts a dual vanity, spa tub, separate shower and totally private toilet.
