Mid-size Roselle has sunny elegance

Farm Forum

Smooth columns, clean lines and gently arched windows lend a breezy, sun-washed Mediterranean look to the Roselle. A raised stucco planter wraps around the inner front corner of the garage, accentuating its arched windows. Foliage and flowers will be seen in their best light here, against the uncluttered stucco backdrop.

This mid-size home is all on one level, so it could be easily adapted for wheelchair accessibility. It has four bedrooms, plus a vaulted den or guest room that could be used as a home office. If desired, a door can be added for direct access from the front porch.

Natural light illuminates the entry, spilling in through a sidelight and transom. An arched opening on the left leads into a room that could be furnished as a parlor or dining area.

The centrally located bathroom is convenient to everything. Next to it, a second arched opening feeds into the combination family room, nook and kitchen. Family and friends will love spending time in this window-rich, spacious area.

Sliders in the nook offer patio access, handy for outdoor meals when the weather is congenial. A fireplace fills one rear corner of the vaulted family room. Its colorful flames offer a warm, relaxing balm on dark nights and dreary days.

Two or three cooks can easily combine culinary efforts in this large kitchen. Counters and cupboards are in abundant supply, including a walk-in pantry. The long work island across the room is rimmed with a raised eating/conversation bar.

Double doors open into the Roselle’s large owners’ suite. Luxuries include a roomy walk-in closet, and a private bathroom with dual vanity, cultured marble walk-in shower, and enclosed toilet.
