Floor Plan: Rockford

The two-story Rockford, beautifully faced with brick and stone, is the ideal home for a busy family that requires a lot of living area combined with freedom of movement.

Attractive columns front the covered porch as you make you way into the vaulted entry. To the left, through double doors, is a nice size den. This is the room to sit and relax with a good book, answer some letters or just savor the view that the large front window provides. More double doors connect the den to the dining room. Here, with built-ins for linen and silver, more formal meals can be taken.The spacious kitchen, open to the second floor, is a cook's delight. The central cooking island allows free motion whether serving meals in the dining room or more casually in the skylighted nook. Nearby is a walk-in pantry with lots of shelf space. Hot snacks can also be brought into the vaulted family room, the hub of this elegant home. Here family and friends can gather in front of the built-in entertainment center while the fireplace keeps everyone warm. When the weather brightens, take the fun out on the back deck.

The lavish master suite is something to see. The plush features include vaulted ceilings, separate vanity, walk-in closet (with two options), linen storage, sitting room and a skylighted bathroom with shower, spa tub and twin basins. The sitting room opens into a modest home office, also vaulted, where unfinished work can be brought up to date.

A half-bath and convenient utility room, with access to a two-car garage that house a central vacuum system and contains extra storage space, complete the first floor design.

The second floor contains two identical bedrooms, each well lit and with liberal closet space. Separating these two sleeping rooms is a full, skylighted bathroom. For the students in the house, a built-in desk is situated on the adjacent landing.

Available for a recreation/game room is the large unfinished basement.

More room for storage is also at hand in the attic loft.
