Brick accents around the perimeter of the foundation punctuate the appeal this home will bring to your neighborhood. An inviting covered entry patio with matching brick emphasizes curb appeal. Decorative and functional façade features such as gable grilles and trellis window awnings will add lasting value to your home. Proper window shading, efficient windows, and fiber cement siding give this home green features that will fit into any aesthetic neighborhood requirements. The two car garage is nestled comfortably towards the rear of the home so as not to dominate the view from the front yard. Painted fiber cement clap board siding and trim give this home a clean, crisp finished appearance with endless possible color variations.
The first floor offers a unique combination of seclusion, open space, indoor outdoor living, and ample storage. As one enters through the classic brick accented porch they are brought immediately into tall and grand, double height entryway. Past the entry stairs is a completely open Kitchen, Living Room, and Dinning Room area, which fits the modern needs of today’s families. Integrated into this open space is a screened in patio\porch which can act as a great place to gather and barbeque on summer nights. Hidden off of the kitchen is a private study area great for a library, and for those of us who like our quite time. Finally, this first floor offer extensive storage opportunities, both under the entry stair, and in the Mudroom between the Garage and Living Room.
The second floor starts off with a half wall railing allowing an open view to the entry below. From there you find two bedrooms and one shared bathroom, a great child friendly set up for families with two to four children. A linen closet and upstairs laundry room adds efficiency and a true source of function to this space. The Master Bedroom is truly grand with a walk-in-closet, oversized shower stall and whirlpool, (separated) his and her sinks, and a large bedroom space.

Window shading details: External window shading devices are an effective method for reducing heat gains through windows during Summer. In fact, external shading devices can reduce heat gains by up to 80% if sized and built properly. With this in mind, the founders of Green Living, formerly Free Green, created this page to assist home builders in constructing effective window shading devices. The information we provide includes a zoning map of the United States, zoning charts for proper sizing of shading devices and a variety of shading device styles and materials to suite different tastes and different home designs.
