Congenial 'Loveland' is rich in light, vaulting
Looking at the Loveland, it’s easy to imagine lazing away a summer afternoon on an old-fashioned porch swing. The congenial covered porch spans the front and wraps quite a ways around the left side. Half-round windows nestled under the garage gable and two dormer gables add to the home’s welcoming appearance.
Inside, vaulted ceilings expand the sense of spaciousness in the entry, great room, master suite and secondary bedrooms. On the upper level, a railed bridge cuts across the air space that links the entry and great room, where ceilings slope up to almost two stories in height.
Sources of natural light are generously supplied. Sidelights brighten the entry; wide windows fill much of the rear wall; and more light spills into the kitchen through a bank of skylights. While bay windows in the office and dining room let in plenty of light there too, this light is muted by the covered porch.
The kitchen is entirely open to the great room, and a long conversation bar rims the L-shaped work island that houses a cook top as well. Ample counter space allows a team of cooks to create culinary magic together here without stepping on each other’s toes.
A huge walk-in pantry is just around the corner, in a large pass-through utility/mud room that connects the kitchen to the three-car garage.
Master suite luxuries in the Loveland include: a huge walk-in closet, private water closet, double vanity, walk-in shower and deep soaking tub. Soft light filters into the bathroom through glass block walls.
Two more bedrooms are upstairs, plus a two-section bathroom, storage closet, linen closet and shelf-lined hallway. This level also offers access to a huge bonus room and another large storage space over the garage.
