Well-suited to a growing family or empty nesters who still need room for visiting guests and relatives, the two story Parmeter is a versatile floor design with something for everyone. A vaulted entry, open to the second floor, begins the journey through this elegant home. The vaulted living room projects forward from the rest of the house. One end of the room functions as a bay, with three large windows set at angles to each other to take advantage of a view. A formal dining room opens to the living room. A half-bath is near the entry.
The conveniently located kitchen, with double ovens and cooktop stove, allow meals to be served casually in the sunny breakfast nook or more formally in the adjacent dining room. The vaulted family room, with fireplace and built-in woodbox, offers a cozy atmosphere for entertaining. Accessible from both the nook and family room is a skylit greenhouse. Big enough for the most ardent gardener, many enjoyable hours can be spent here by the "green thumb" in the house.Isolated in one corner is the spacious master suite. Featuring a huge walk-in closet, twin basins in a separate vanity, shower and raised tub. There is a private entrance to the side patio, where a barbecue or a relaxing soak in the spa can add a nice touch to a long day.
A large area that can be used either as an extended utility room or comfortable den complete the living area on the first floor. A good-size shop, for those do-it-yourself projects and two-car garage, each with an entrance, abut the house.
The entire second floor, which can be closed off when not in use, is given over to a sleeping area. Here are two identical bedrooms, each with a good-size walk-in closet and large front view window. A full bathroom and linen closet with plenty or shelves conclude the upper floor plan.
