The Buystedt (404-54) is unusual in design as it has a large courtyard in the front enclosed by a fence that matches the home. As you face this 2,568-square-foot home, the two-car garage is on the right, and the extra bedrooms are on the left. The porch area is covered and runs along the courtyard. The look is slightly Spanish and yet maintains a contemporary look.

Once inside the entryway, you face a display case designed to hold the family treasures. Overhead are two medium-size skylights that allow sunlight to bathe the entryway. Behind the case is a long "L"-shaped room that has a formal vaulted dining room on the left and a formal vaulted living room on the right. At the corner is a gas fireplace that can be shared by both rooms.The master suite is behind the garage and has amenities not normally found in master suites. It contains French doors that open to the outside, two skylights for a natural look, a huge walk-in closet and a master bath. Between the main part of the suite and bathroom is an area for a sitting room with a linen closet. It has two windows that look out onto the back yard.

Also connected to this area is a den that can be used as an office, a library or even Dad's hideaway. The kitchen is at the rear of the home and is a great size. It has all the fixtures conveniently located in a semi-circle with a large eating bar. There are also two skylights in this area to bring in the sunlight and brighten the morning. A large walk-in pantry is available for storing surplus food. There is also a small storage cabinet next to the pantry that houses the water heater and room for small appliances.

The family room is next to the kitchen with French doors to the deck out back, two large windows and two skylights. This home, with all the skylights, should be bathed in natural light, and not requiring nearly as many electrical lights.

Bedroom 2 and a guest suite is at the front of the home. The guest suite has French doors that open to the yard area. It has its own bath with a tub, full walk-in closet and large windows. The second bedroom has a bath across the hall with a shower. Both rooms have linen closets near them, and the utility room is across the hall between both bathrooms.
