The 1,672-square-foot Van is a medium-size home that is perfect for a city lot. Ideal for those with school-age children or empty nesters whose kids come home for extended visits, the Van truly makes the family the cornerstone of this design. The attractive brick and wood front, including either tile of shake roof, adds to the curb appeal of this eye-catching home.
Think food when entering the Van. The U-shaped kitchen, with built-in appliances, pantry and eating bar is to the left of the entry. Casual meals can be served directly into the adjacent nook, radiantly lit from the front windows and overhead skylights. On more formal occasions, or just for a change of pace, dinner can be served in the vaulted dining room.The living room, also with a vaulted ceiling, flows into the dining area to create a great room effect. This provides plenty of space for family and friends to gather for conversation, watching your favorite television show or playing the latest board game. A glowing fireplace keeps everyone toasty and able to enjoy the fun on cold winter evenings.
A good-size master suite, located in the back left corner, is ideally situated for parents of young children. Featuring a walk-in closet, private bathroom and separate vanity, it is placed with a modest bedroom, each with ample closet space, on either side, This allows parents to maintain their own privacy, while still being able to keep tabs on nearby children. For retired folks, one of the spare bedrooms can be utilized as a sewing room, music room, home office or what have you.
The hallway between the bedrooms has a full, skylit bathroom and a generous utility room with access to the two-car garage. Groceries can be easily brought into the house regardless of the weather.
