Corbin extends a warm welcome

Farm Forum

A generous wrap-around porch greets visitors to the country-style Corbin, a medium-size home that offers plenty of family living space, both formal and informal.

Owners of the home could confine their living to the ground floor if they wish, since the owners’ suite is on this level. That leaves the second floor for children, visiting grandchildren, or other guests.

A long custom-shaped eating bar provides partial separation between the kitchen and the family room. Otherwise the area is wide open. Vaulted to the second floor (as is the dining room), the family room, nook, and kitchen are bathed in natural light from a wealth of windows. The second floor landing forms a unique bridge that overlooks the family room to the back, and the dining room and entryway to the front.

Holiday and formal gatherings can spread out in the spacious dining room and parlor. The parlor has a brick fireplace and is brightened by a wide bay window. Another fireplace warms the family room.

A utility room and powder room are equally convenient to the Corbin’s kitchen and the two-car garage.

The Corbin’s owners’ suite features access to the deck, and has a private bathroom with a walk-in closet, raised spa, and compartmentalized toilet and shower. The upstairs bathroom, central to the two big bedrooms, has two lavatories. The vaulted front bedroom features a half-round window above.
