Shake and lap siding combine with cultured stone veneer to make the Brookville a textural treat for the eyes.  This country cottage is designed for a lot that slopes down at the rear.

Family and friends will enjoy spending time together in the window-bright, wide-open gathering space at the heart of this home. Sparkling windows frame and crown a gas fireplace that serves as a focal point in the vaulted great room. This lofty space segues seamlessly into the dining room. Only a drop in ceiling height marks the transition.

Sliding doors in the dining room allow easy access to a wide, partially covered railed deck that spans much of the rear. The covered section could be screened if bugs are problematic.

Kitchen workers can gaze out across the raised eating bar to watch fireplace flames or keep tabs on activities in the dining room and on the deck. Counters, cabinets and appliances wrap around four sides of the kitchen, and a roomy pantry nestles into one corner.

Another vaulted ceiling expands the sense of spaciousness in the owners’ suite, the only ground floor bedroom. Amenities here include a deep walk-in closet and a two-section bathroom with an oversized shower.

You can overlook the vaulted great room while ascending the stairway to the upper level. Two more bedrooms, a bathroom and a large bonus room are upstairs. One bedroom has a wider closet; the other bedroom is slightly larger overall.

Light spills into the Brookville’s bonus room through a street-facing multipaned window. Ceilings slope down on the left and right. This room could double as an art studio, hobby space or exercise room while still leaving plenty of storage space along the sides.
