Families that enjoy spending time together and with friends will appreciate the multiple gathering spaces in the Noble Fir. Options range from the relaxed and cozy sun-drenched nook to the formal living room and dining room, to the state-of-the-art family theater.

Windowed on four sides, the bayed nook is richly illuminated with natural light. Plants thrive here, almost as well as they do outside in the planter box that rims the deck next to the steps. More light streams in through a garden window in front of the sink. Kitchen amenities include an eating bar, a step-in pantry, raised dishwasher, built-in oven, microwave and range.A large utility room is just around the corner. It is outfitted with a pull-down ironing board, overhead cabinets and a counter for folding clothes. Garage access and steps to the basement are right outside the door. The two-car garage has a shop and storage space off to the side.

Multipaned windows flank the front door, suffusing the vaulted entry with light. On the covered porch, skylights create a spotlight effect directly in front of the door. The railed country-style porch wraps around to the left where a door enters the family theater and steps descend to the side yard.

The vaulted dining room and living room flow together. Windows fill most of the rear wall, and French doors at the center open onto a rambling deck. A fireplace, tucked into the corner farthest from the windows, provides warmth and color when skies are gray.

Outfitted with a large-screen television and a quadraphonic sound system, the family room becomes a family theater. Shelves and cabinets house equipment, videotapes, albums and the like. Doors on three sides allow entry from the porch, the bedrooms and the living room.

Five skylights and a bayed sitting area brighten the sumptuous master suite. Luxuries here include a walk-in closet, oversize shower and a second vanity outside the bathroom. The bathroom that serves the secondary bedrooms also has skylights and twin sinks.
