The country-style Clayton is a spacious home, to say the least. And it’s built over a basement to boot. With five or six bedrooms and four roomy gathering spaces, it is well suited to the needs of a large family.
Shuttered windows and a wide covered porch with wooden handrails add to the attractiveness of the inviting front facade. Doors to the three-car garage open on the left side, not the front.
Stepping into the two-story entry, you notice a parlor to the left and a stairway to the right. At the top of the stairs is a loft. Facing forward, the loft overlooks the entry, including a view of the plant shelf over the door. Facing the rear, it overlooks the vaulted great room.
Four bedrooms are upstairs, along with a two-section bathroom, and a deep attic storage area. Two of the bedrooms have small gabled dormers; the third bedroom has a larger one. Not to be outdone, the fourth bedroom boasts the largest closet.
Back on the main floor, the large kitchen is open to the great room and dining room. The kitchen ceiling is flat while the great room, dining room, and nearby four-season porch all have vaulted ceilings. Aside from its size, the kitchen’s most notable feature is a jumbo-size gas grill, great for turning out mountains of burgers, pancakes, or grilled-cheese sandwiches.
Windows line two walls of the Clayton’s bright four-season porch. The owners’ suite’s deep walk-in closet doubles as a passthrough connecting the two areas. Owners’ bath amenities include a double vanity, shower and private toilet. The study could serve as a home office or bedroom.
