The Newport, with a handsome brick and wood exterior, is a country-style house with a versatile floor plan that can be adapted to a variety of lifestyles. With the master suite and guest accommodations on the first floor, the two- bedroom second level may be closed off when not in use, made into an apartment for aging parents or serve as the sleeping quarters for teen or college-age children living at home.
A covered front porch adds to the comfortable flavor of this beautiful home. Plenty of room here to sit on a porch swing and enjoy a pleasant summer evening.The vaulted entry, open to the second floor, accents the spacious feeling and ease of movement throughout this design. To the left of the entry, a small home office is available for unfinished work brought home, or for keeping up the household accounts. Shelf space is adequate and windows on three sides admit the sunlight.
As a buffer between the home office and the master suite, we have a full utility room complete with sink and pull-down ironing board. Linen storage is located in the hallway. Luxury abounds in the master suite. It has a large sleeping area with a built-in window seat nearby and private access to a small back deck complete with a spa waiting to ease the stress of a long day. Other amenities include a skylit walk-in closet, raised tub with skylight, glass block shower, twin basins, linen storage and a home security system. Across the hall is a guest suite that will please friends and relatives spending the night. It has a private bath, closet space and can also access the spa. A half bath is located in the hallway behind the staircase.
The living room, with fireplace and wood storage box, is open to the second floor. The configuration of the walk-through kitchen allows a busy household to prepare and serve meals with ease. With the dining room and nook on opposite sides, you can dine either formally or informally. Other kitchen features include a raised dishwasher, eating bar, walk-in pantry, freezer, broom closet and garden window.
The second floor has two good-sized bedrooms, each with closet space and linen storage. They share a bathroom. An additional 386 square feet of attic space is available on the top level.
