Why We Love It
1. First Floor. I've always been a huge fan of this floor plan. You enter into a great room with cathedral ceilings and a staircase that turns to the back so it's not the first thing you see when you step in the door. The great room is large and it's open to the kitchen that has a bay window for your table. White cabinetry keeps the space bright and multi-tasking made a little easier with the convenient location of the laundry room. An abundance of windows across the back of the home creates an easy transition to the patio when you have company over. This is a dream layout for entertaining.
2. Backyard. Speaking of the patio, it anchors this great backyard. You first step out to a small sitting area on the deck and it leads down to a large stamped concrete patio. The patio has room for 2 different sitting areas so there is room for everyone to enjoy your fenced backyard.
3. Basement. Without question, the open concept floor plan is more popular than ever with today's homeowners. The one downside we hear from those owners is the lack of a second - closed off - living space in case you want to watch something different, read in a quiet area, or create a play room. That's why the finished basement in this home is so important; it creates another large living area to provide a little buffer to your daily routine when needed.
What You Need To Know
As you pull up to this 2-story Westchester home, take notice of the tidy landscape, welcoming front door, and the new roof that was just put on this summer.
The floor plan has always been a fan favorite. The great room is very long - spanning from front to back of the home - but that depth is matched by the soaring cathedral ceilings creating a perfect scale. The size of the room gives you plenty of options for the layout of your furniture. The cross breeze created by the positioning of the windows means you can even give your air conditioner a break and let home air out.
A bay window eating nook is all that separates your new kitchen from the great room. And what a kitchen it is.
White cabinetry with a nice bead board detail on the side, a large center island, and a unique addition of shelves above the sink that can be both practical and decorative highlight your cooking zone.
A convenient laundry area to the side of the kitchen makes it easier to check that chore off your to do list.
Also adjacent to this space is the powder room, garage entry, and access to the finished basement.
Upstairs we find all three bedroom and both full bathrooms.
Your owner's suite has a private shower making morning a little less hectic and a large walk-in closet.
The two guest bedrooms each have double width closets of their own and they share the other full bathroom located off the hallway.
The finishing of this level made a huge difference to the function of this home. Traditional floor plans used to have a living room and a family room but those separate spaces were combined with the concept of the great room. Now with the finished basement, you have that second option again.
