Informal Palermo has flexible living space

Relaxed and spacious, the Palermo is designed to suit families who prefer an informal lifestyle. Family living spaces flow together at the rear in the naturally bright vaulted great room. The room by the entry could be outfitted as a media room, study, or home office.

Storage space is generous throughout, with large cabinets and closets in the entry, great room, kitchen, owners’ suite, and utility room, not to mention the three-car garage.

The entry’s lofty ceiling is 12 feet high, and begins sloping up as you move into the great room. A parade of windows spangles the back and side walls, while a gas fireplace fits neatly into a corner. Deep shelving is ample for housing a home entertainment center.

A long conversation bar with an overhead plant shelf marks the kitchen boundary without cutting it off from the larger space. Someone standing at the kitchen range can survey the entire room, or gaze past the skylit dining area through French doors to watch the changing seasons. A partially covered patio spans the rear.

Utilities and a compact bathroom are nearby, nestled in a pass-through space that leads to the garage.

French double doors in the lavish owners’ suite offer direct patio access. A perfect spot for a hot tub is right around the corner. Other amenities include two huge walk-in closets and an owners’ bath with double vanity, enclosed toilet, oversized shower and deep soaking tub.

The front of the Palermo’s two secondary bedrooms is vaulted. Its boxed bay provides an ideal location for a wide window seat with built-in drawers.
