The 2,223 square foot Halo is an ideal house for a young family needing more living space. The versatile Halo will also work well for empty nesters who like to entertain and have accommodations for any overnight guests. This three-bedroom two-bath beauty, with an attractive wood exterior, is definitely a home you can build with pride.
A wide front porch, which is a great place to sit and enjoy a summer evening, welcomes your visitors. The entry, with a handy closet, leads directly into a generous great room. Here you can regale friends and family while the built-in fireplace keeps everyone cozy. When the weather warms, take the fun out on the broad back deck. Plenty of room here to set up the barbecue for an old-fashioned cookout.The isolated master suite is quite large. In addition to having a private bathroom, there are twin basins with an overhead skylight, a huge walk-in closet and personal access to the deck. Adjacent to the master suite is a home office big enough for conducting a business or setting up your PC for use in maintaining household accounts and playing computer games.
The secondary sleeping quarters are on the opposite side of the Halo. They consist of two good-size bedrooms with big windows and adequate closet space. Empty nesters might consider using one as a den or exercise room. A full bathroom is off the hallway.
The walk-in kitchen features a bright breakfast nook, island cooktop, raised dishwasher, garden window, double ovens and a built-in desk. There is also a nice walk-in pantry. The front dining room not only provides a comfortable setting for meals, it allows you to savor the view from a projecting window seat.
The spacious utility room is sure to please. It conveniently opens into the garage, assuring you of a spot to discard soiled clothing before entering the house. It features a sink, room for folding clothes, storage and a built-in ironing board. The 927 square foot garage has room for storage, a built-in work-bench and an area for garbage and recyclable materials.
