Norwich takes new angle on family living
An intriguing angularity, combined with arched windows and brick detailing, draws eyes to the Norwich. Cedar shakes, corner quoins and small sections of lap siding add to the visual appeal. This single-level plan can be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.
Standing in the tiled entry, you face the kitchen, living room and dining room. The vaulted living room, with its richly glassed rear wall, is breathtaking. An entertainment center is on one side of the fireplace while cabinets, shelves and a small sink fill the opposite space.
A raised eating bar provides partial separation between the kitchen and a dining room, and French doors swing open to access a partially covered patio brightened by skylights. Kitchen amenities include: a step-in pantry, built-in appliances, and a work island.
The small powder room and large, fully outfitted utility room are mere steps away. Linked to the garage, the utility room serves as a mudroom and a convenient place for unloading groceries.
Odd-angled walls and a coffered ceiling frame the majestic owners’ suite. Its gas log fireplace can be enjoyed from either the spa tub or the bed/sitting area. Daylight shines through glass blocks illuminating the tub, and the huge closet provides storage space equal to three average-sized walk-ins.
A dramatic arched window graces the Norwich’s other bedroom, which is vaulted and has direct access to a two-section bathroom.
French doors open into a room concealed by a 6-foot-high partition that bounds the living room. With tall windows opening towards the front, this space could be outfitted as a den, home office or even a third bedroom.
