With three bedrooms and a spacious guest suite upstairs, a full range of family living areas downstairs and abundant storage space, the McKinney is definitely designed with the needs of a large family in mind. A long, wide country-style wrap-around porch complete with columns and rails sets the welcoming tone of this inspired floor design.

At its hub is a big, open kitchen, the heart of family life. Featuring a central butchers block, cooktop island, walk-in pantry, eating bar and garden window, this fully equipped area is sure to please the cook in the house. Casual meals can be served either in the family room, where a pellet stove keeps things cozy, or in the adjacent nook. Both these rooms have access to the back patio, where warmer weather brings friends and relatives together for an old-fashioned cookout. More formal dinners can be served in the front dining room.The master suite has all the luxury amenities, including a large walk-in closet, spa, separate shower with built-in bench and private access to both the patio, where a hot tub awaits to ease the cares of the day, and a deep double garage that is roomy enough for cars, storage and a work bench.

A well-lit living room that can be converted to a music room or home office, a huge utility room with lots of shelves and a half bath complete the first-floor design.

A good portion of the second floor is unfinished space for storage. Plenty of room here to keep things until they are needed. Three small bedrooms, each with ample closet space, are ideal for families with kids old enough to need privacy. A full bath and linen closet are nearby. The remainder of the top floor is taken over by an opulent guest suite. Complete with private spa, overnight visitors are sure to appreciate their stay in this room.
