HOMESTYLE OF THE WEEK: COLLIN

Heavy fascia and rake boards at the roofline cap a partial facade to give a contemporary look to the Collin.

With the master suite at one end of the house and two more bedrooms at the opposite end, this is a home for families with older children, or empty nesters who like to keep rooms ready for visiting grandchildren and other guests.The kitchen is huge, with cupboard and counter space on all four sides, plenty of natural light and sliding glass doors that open onto a deck.

A walk-in pantry and an irregularly shaped utility room are tucked into the juncture between the central portion of the home and the angled wing that holds the master suite and garage. A door provides easy access from the garage to the kitchen and utility room, handy for carrying in groceries or washing up after working outside.

Twin lavatories in the master bath eliminate competition for mirror space and a large walk-in closet offers plenty of storage for clothing. Another set of sliding glass doors opens onto the deck from the master bedroom.

Each bedroom at the far end of the house is equal in size and has its own window seat - a great place to read, display a collection, or simply relax. One of the rooms, however, has a smaller closet. These bedrooms share a large bathroom, with one basin inside the water closet and another in a separate compartment.
