1850 sq ft Rustic ranch style home 3 bedroom 2 baths
The owners dream to build a simple yet elegant one story country cottage, for their retirement, came true in this charming & efficient 1,880 sqft custom home.
The traditional design of this 3 bedroom, 2 bath craftsman cottage is quite simple, but still abounds with many details both inside and out. As you first approach the home the exterior features, including the craftsman style knotty alder front door, large roof overhangs, and a spacious front porch with gable details, welcome you. Upon entering the home you are immediately taken by the warmth and charm of its cottage styling in the great room. From the vaulted beamed ceiling to the stone fireplace with its local cherry mantle to the knotty oak floors the room sets the feel for the entire house.
At the heart of the home is a spacious and light filled country kitchen with shaker style cabinetry, granite tops and a large custom island wrapped in rough sawn pine & topped with a unique butcher block comprised of five local wood species. The master suite, just off the kitchen, has a large bathroom with ADA accessible custom tile shower, just right for the gracefully ageing couple. The home also boasts all hardwood & tile floors, a large 1 car garage, mudroom and laundry area and a full basement.
For all its cottage charm this house is a fully modern, highly efficient structure which includes insulated ZIP wall sheathing, high efficiency windows and dual fuel HVAC system, on demand gas hot water and a Manabloc plumbing system.
