Simple Elegance – Yours

“Elegance doesn’t mean being noticed; it means being remembered.” – Giorgio Armani 

Elegant simplicity.  Understated elegance.  Whatever you think of a traditional, colonial home, you must add these words.  Gorgeous.  Elegant.  Timeless.  This classic traditional home style, Baldwin D-3362, https://www.lchouseplans.com/product/baldwin/ brings you 3,362 square feet, 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths of warmth and class with your touches of unique style.  With an elegant exterior of arched windows in a Georgian stucco style, to the dormer windows on the second story, to the classic beauty of the front door entry, this house knows you want to call it home. 

The side-load garage lends the expansive, seamless look your home deserves.  Dormer windows above the garage, add light and function to the space that you will enjoy daily.  Your garage has a separate storage/workshop area.  From your garage entry, you walk into your home and a space that branches to a stairwell up to the second story bonus room, a first-floor powder room and a laundry room with sink. 

 

Your elegant but not fussy entryway welcomes you into a bright two-story foyer.  This can be lit with a trendy multi-armed light fixture or sparkly, multi-tiered chandelier.  Really, this home style lends itself to who you are and your idea of style and comfort.  Your feel.  Your zone.  There is a staircase here that takes you up to the second floor.  Off the foyer, your separate and opposite facing living room and dining room, gives you the flexibility of casual living and a more formal dining atmosphere.  Does your baby grand piano need the right space?  It’s here.  Arched windows enhance the grandeur of the piano, but also envelopes you in a cozy, haven zone for whatever you enjoy.  The tray ceiling in the dining room adds height and charm.  A gourmet kitchen lies just beyond the dining room.  This area will be happy to have the stainless oven and large wine fridge you want, it’s perfect here.  From the peninsula island, a sink overlooks the breakfast area that has a vaulted ceiling.  A beautiful round, glass topped pedestal table would look wonderful here.  There is a door leading to your outdoor dining/entertaining/sitting terrace space here too.   

The terrace is uncovered, you could easily add a retractable awning for warm, sunny days or to take cover in a rain shower.  You get all the best options – cover from unwanted weather elements and still give yourself the option of al fresco dining.  Double doors from the terrace also lead to the family room as well. 

The coffered (recessed or indentations in an overhead surface) ceiling in the family room can improve the acoustics in the room for your great sound system.  Your fireplace in the gathering space, along with a corner wet bar will provide hours of happy memories with friends and family. 

 

On the second floor, which you can access via the staircase in the foyer or the back stairway by your laundry room, you’ll find your master suite, three more suites and a large bonus room.  Your master suite has a tray ceiling that adds a nice open feel to the space.  With two walk-in closets, there is plenty of room for keeping seasonal clothing separate or for 2 people who each need their own space.  Ideal!  Your master bath has 2 separate vanities and sinks.  The garden tub is lit, not only with a nice window, but a skylight above.  There is also a separate water closet and walk-in shower. 

Two other suites on this floor are joined by a Jack and Jill bathroom.  There is a single sink and bathtub here, making for a perfect scenario for families with young children.  Each suite has a closet, but not walk-in style. 

The third suite has its own bathroom with single sink, bathtub and closet.  For guests or a college student home, this space offers appreciated privacy. 

Your bonus room, with two dormer windows, is an ideal spot for office space, watching movies and even your workout equipment.  With a family, this space can be a second area for kids and friends to hang out in.  If you have aging family members living with you, this is just a few steps from a suite and can be a place to relax, have privacy and offer more of a homey living feel. 

There is plenty of walk-in attic space on this floor too. Safety first, no pull-down ladders here!

No matter your style, this traditional, classic home can be as formal or comfortable as you like. Its beautiful exterior and very functional, well purposed interior will fill your years, lovingly,  as a growing family, empty nester or caretaker. 

Make this your own.  Welcome Home.
