Varied roof lines and a charming wrap-around porch give the Elsberry such an intriguing appearance that you can’t help but take a second look.
Most interesting, perhaps, is the hidden sun deck, recessed into the roof of the covered front porch. A French door links this sunny space to the vaulted owners’ suite on the second floor.
This small home is particularly well suited to the needs of a couple, single, empty nesters, or a small family. It also lends itself to construction as a vacation get-away. The wide rear deck and front porch provide plenty of space for appreciating the outdoors.
Entering, you step directly into the heart of the home. It’s mere steps to the kitchen, and your panoramic view encompasses the living room, dining room and deck. Standing in the kitchen, you’ve got that same great view, though a flush eating and conversation bar does provide some separation.
Ceilings are high and vaulted in the living room and dining room. Sunlight washes in through wide rear windows, and a circular fireplace radiates warmth and color on gray days. Sliders in the dining area access the rear deck, and double doors open into the den.
The main bathroom has two entries. You can get there from the den, or from a hallway on the other side that runs past a bedroom (or study), and a utility room with a handy exterior access. This feature enables it to double as a mud room, when needed.
Another vaulted ceiling adds volume to the Elsberry’s owners’ suite upstairs. In addition to its concealed deck, this large space has a roomy walk-in closet, oversized shower with seat, double vanity and private toilet.
