One Floor – One Life – Live them both well
Be grateful for who you are and what you have. No Matter What.
Are you an empty nester, live alone, have physical challenges or just looking for easy movement of space and comfort? Look no more. This ranch-style, 2700 square foot single story home with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths will settle you with a home of ease, classic style, comfort, warmth, safety and still have room for entertaining. Frank Snodgrass of Living Concepts House Plans, brings you this Camfield (C-2700) gem. Take my hand, I’m eager to show you.
Right away you see this lovely home isn’t plain and dull. It isn’t going to go unnoticed. It wears beautiful strong brick, high, important rooflines, and it shows its soul through arched top windows. It implores you to come in and both spring joy eternal and put up your feet.
Stepping up to your loggia (covered porch) and through your front door is a designated foyer that seamlessly blends into your grand room. Your room for welcoming guests, a baby grand piano, soft furniture for easy rest or bright energy wants you here. From your grand room, a door (that can be nice and wide for ease of a walker or wheelchair) leads to a wonderful, large, covered back deck. This deck will easily handle your dining set, plants and potted herbs as well as your outdoor kitchen or favorite grill. Come. Eat. Relax.
Rest Your Soul
Perhaps the space that soothes your mind and soul best is your master bedroom. The entire right side of the house showcases the master luxurious, soul-searching, soul-saving, soul-calming suite. With a tray ceiling, Sherwin Williams Bathe Blue or Waterscape colored ceiling will bring more height and peace to this space. Your master bath has a linen closet, which can be accessible, even if you needed to reach something with a step stool or a grabber arm from MaxiAids. With two (2) generous walk-in closets, your seasonal clothes can be separated, have a his and hers space or even precious items, like boxes of pictures, that you don’t want in any attic space (even holiday décor is fine here), belong here. Your house. Your choices.
Live and Entertain
Back to your foyer you have a very open dining room. Columns mark the corners for a classic, framed look. With hardwood floors throughout the home, not only is this space easy to move around in, but the whole house will be as well. Think of all the holiday or Sunday night dinners that can be enjoyed in this welcoming space. From the dining room there is a hallway to a powder room, your laundry room and (2) bedrooms. The bedrooms share a jack and jill bathroom. Your guests will be comfortable and yet, have privacy away from the main living spaces of the house. Bedlinens that are bright in Spring and cozy in Winter will ensure you have company any time you want it. Your home will be a haven for all. The bedroom/laundry room area is just inside the door that leads to your 2-car garage. There is a staircase here that goes up to attic space and a large bonus room. Maybe your office, treadmill, stability ball or even just a bike pedal-like piece of equipment fit here. This is also a perfect spot for a home movie theater.
Heartbeat of the House
Back toward the dining room area and grand room, your ‘Heartbeat Central”, also known as the kitchen, breakfast area and a cozy gathering (or hearth) room, waits for you. Typically, a kitchen is the center of a home. You spend time in it whether you are cooking for one or twenty-one, when you entertain, everyone wants to be in this area……you might pay bills from the breakfast area, play board games, chat with your friends on the phone or reflect on your day when evening settles in around you.
The breakfast nook, which really is meal central, will be great to sit and break bread, any time of day. Tea and morning muffins, a big lettuce salad for lunch, a delicious dinner and sneaky night snack can be had in this very comfortable spot. Perhaps you’ll surround your table with banquette seating?
Your gathering room, off the kitchen/eating area has a fireplace for any time of day, lots of room for a large, soft sectional with chaise, a generous throw blanket, space for books or your favorite hobby and your digital picture frame for revolving photos, will be sure to make this your favorite spot in the house. Imagine a fantastic bold, contemporary oil-painting above the fireplace in here, or a lovely landscape. A door from ‘comfort-central’, leads out to your covered deck.
See, you can have ‘it all’. With one floor, easy accessibility, enough room for guests and plenty of outdoor space, it doesn’t matter if you’re a one or one+ person home. This will be enough.
Make this your own. Welcome Home.
