The Larkspur is a contemporary townhouse with Florida flavor

Farm Forum

The Larkspur is a contemporary townhouse with a Florida flavor. As such, it has a fairly narrow footprint, which makes it well-suited for construction among other townhouses. This home would also work well as a vacation retreat.

Its entry is slightly recessed under wide eaves that stretch out to create a covered porch spanning the front. Three squared framed-out columns highlight the ends and the entry.

Inside, the home is really quite spacious. The foyer has a handy mini-bathroom on the left, then leads into a wide open living room, dining area, and kitchen on the right. Windows flank and highlight the living room’s fireplace, an inviting focal point when days are dark and nights are long. On warmer, brighter days, you may want to move meals outside onto the partially covered patio just outside of the dining area’s atrium door.

Appliances are built into the plentiful cupboards and counter tops that define the C-shaped kitchen. More storage space, deep and wide, nestles under the nearby staircase.

The owners’ suite fills out most of the rear. Pocket doors in the sleeping area access two roomy step-in closets. A similar door opens into a two-section bathroom with an oversized shower and double vanity. The hallway outside of the suite ends at a pass-through utility room that links with the two-car garage.

Two bedrooms, a two-section bathroom, a large loft and an even larger bonus room are upstairs in the Larkspur. A wide window brightens the loft, which is open to the stairwell over a half wall. Shelves line a large walk-in closet at the rear, and another wide stack of storage shelves hide behind a bi-fold door on the side.
