2-story Blue Heron makes cozy little nest

SHARE 2-story Blue Heron makes cozy little nest

The Blue Heron, an exquisite two-story charmer, has an excellent floor design that makes efficient use of the 1,608 square feet of living area. Decorative columns support raised arches on the covered front porch, offering a welcoming atmosphere to visitors.

To the right of the entry is a living room expansive enough for family get-togethers or entertaining friends with the latest video or stimulating conversation. A large bay window presents a full view of the frontal landscape. An ornamental plant shelf divides the living room from the dining room, where more formal meals may be enjoyed.The spacious kitchen has everything to please the cook in the house. Some of the outstanding features include an island cooktop-eating bar, double ovens and a pantry abutting the staircase. Informal meals may be served at the eating bar, in the roomy breakfast nook or take the barbecue out on the back patio, weather permitting.

Another convenient feature is the placement of the utility room between the kitchen and the garage. This allows you to discard soiled work clothes before entering the house and the added safety of being able to bring groceries directly into the kitchen, regardless of the weather. Adjacent to the utility room is a half-bath. Extra storage space is available under the staircase.

The entire second floor of this design is designated as sleeping quarters. The generous master suite oc-cupies most of this level, and amenities include a private bathroom, his and her closets, and a sitting area to the front.

Two identical bedrooms are across the hall. This arrangement is perfect for families with small children that require close supervision. Empty nesters might decide to use one bedroom as guest quarters and the other as a home office, sewing room or den. Linen storage and a full bathroom are off the hallway.
