Ashley design features twin master suites, dens

Farm Forum

The Ashley is unusual in that it has two owners’ suites, each with an adjacent den. One use scenario would be by a couple in which both partners desire a good deal of personal space, but the plan also lends itself to being shared by two small families.

Each owners’ suite has its own bathroom with shower. Both dens have closets, so they could easily serve as bedrooms, home offices, hobby rooms, etc.

A generously sized utility room is equally convenient to both suites. Conveniences here include a counter with a deep sink, overhead cabinets, and floor-to-ceiling shelves handy for linen and other storage needs. Located in a pass-through that connects to the garage, the space can also serve as a mud room.

The coat closet and hall storage closet are also central. A third bathroom, for use by guests and all family members, has a bathtub.

Bounded by and open to the foyer, gathering spaces fill the entire left side. Living room and dining room flow together, only partially divided by walls with a wide gap between.

Pocket doors make full separation possible, when preferable. A gas fireplace lends charm to the living room. Small windows on both sides of it are high, and larger windows fill most of the front wall.

Light spills into the Ashley’s spacious kitchen through a bay window that creates a nook, ideal for a long table. Side and upper windows have multiple panes, but the two large center windows are thick, single sheets of glass that slide open to access a covered patio. The kitchen also boasts a work island and roomy pantry.
