Casselman designed for growing families

Farm Forum

With a grand total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms, the Casselman is a large family’s dream. And every bedroom boasts a roomy walk-in closet, to boot! Gathering spaces, too, are expansive enough to accommodate the entire crew, and the three-car garage offers plenty of storage.

In this updated Craftsman-style home, a characteristic low-pitched, hipped roof overhangs rows of sparkling clerestory windows on two sides. Abundant natural light washes down through those high rows of glass to naturally illuminate the vaulted, two-story great room.

In the kitchen, an extended conversation bar rims a sizable work island outfitted with a six-burner cook top. Counters and storage spaces line three sides and include a walk-in pantry. The fourth side is completely open to the great room.

Standing at the kitchen sink, you can gaze out over the covered patio. If desired, this area could be screened for bug-free outdoor dining.

The roomy dining area is windowed on two sides and can easily accommodate a long table. Down the hall is a den. Some families may prefer furnishing it as a library, office or home entertainment center.

The Casselman’s spacious owners’ suite is at the end of the hall. Its huge walk-in closet and luxurious bathroom do double duty, buffering sound from the great room. Diffused light washes into the bathroom through high windows and glass blocks.

Upstairs, a flat ceilinged, open balcony overlooks the vaulted great room, while linking two sets of bedrooms. Each set shares a handy two-section bathroom. Conceivably, two people could be brushing their teeth while a third uses the toilet or bath in complete privacy. Bedroom three has a cozy window seat with built-in storage.
