This is a newly constructed Single Family home built in 2015.
NOTE: We just had a fence installed (9-25-2015). Now the back yard is fully fenced. It’s small, which means very little mowing is required. Perfectly private!
This home has an “Open Concept” Great Room which is open to the Kitchen, a large eating bar and the Dining Room. There is a HUGE Pantry (6′ wide by 3′ deep) big enough to hold a month’s worth of food! There is also a Coat Closet that is over 4′ wide, enough space for your own coats plus your guests’ coats and a few children’s backpacks too! There is a Powder Room on the first floor directly across from the coat closet (in the 3rd photo below)
Notice the Stainless Steel appliances (Dishwasher, Range & Microwave / Vent-a-hood).
You supply the Refrigerator, Washer & Dryer.
Notice the size of the pantry! (It’s so large it wouldn’t fit into one picture!
Also downstairs is the Garage. This is 20′ deep x 12′ wide. My Ford F-150 Extended Cab Pick-up fits inside the garage and the door WILL shut! Most vehicles are not as long as my truck, so I’m confident your car will fully fit into the garage. There is space left over to store bicycles, lawn mowers and trimmers, etc.
Not only is there a garage, but there is also a double-wide parking pad out front. So you have three (3) dedicated parking spaces on the lot and will not need to rely on street parking for your extra vehicles.
There is a Powder Room on the first floor for quick access and for guest use. It has an automatic door closer on the hinge to keep the door closed when not in use.
The Bedrooms are all located on the 2nd floor.
Unfortunately this picture is a bit dark, but you’ll see a ceiling fan, 10′ ceilings and a beautiful wooded view. There are 34 acres of land behind this property. The view is wonderful.
The Master has a 7′ x 7′ walk-in closet and it’s own En-Suite Bathroom.
Dual Vanities, natural light and plenty of storage in the cabinets and 3 drawers between the sinks.
Stand-Up Shower is 5′ long!
Bedroom 2 also has a vaulted ceiling (10′ high) and a Walk-In closet!
There is a window in this closet, the small window with the shutters on the front of the house. Every child who has experienced this closet wants to live here!!! We utilized the space above the stairs to open this closet up for more storage. What kid CAN’T keep their room clean with a closet this big?
Bedroom 3 is 11′ x 11′ and has a 7′ long closet. It’s not walk-in, but it is HUGE for a rental unit.
The Secondary Bathroom has a 4′-6″ vanity. It is large enough for several kids to have space in a drawer or on the counter. There is a Tub / Shower Combo in this bathroom. This bathroom is located between Bedroom 2 and 3 for easy access.
The Laundry Room is on the 2nd floor with all the bedrooms (to save you from running up and down the stairs with all the clothes). There is also a huge linen closet up there too!
This linen closet is extra deep. There is space between the 16″ deep shelves and door so that you can store your ironing board, or an upright vacuum cleaner. Your luggage would probably fit under the bottom shelf.
Fuzzy Kilt World
I am a home designer, not an interior decorator, but I design the HOUSE (structure) itself and I’m a girl . . . (gasp!).
In designing a new home, my goal is to get all the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, closets, living areas, etc., in the right spot, within the square footage you want (or can afford to build) and the ultimate goal is to NEVER have space left over in planning (SLOIP). I thrive on the challenge of the “hard-to-fit” building lot, massaging the design so that you can get the house you want in the footprint available. Designing Tiny Homes is my ultimate challenge. I often dream houses, for this reason I keep a drawing pad beside my bed so I can sketch it out and actually remember it the next morning. Most times, it’s a great idea. (Most days.)
DISCLAIMER: I do not know how to spell. I know some pretty good grammar, but sometimes I just ignore it. I tend to use southern talkin’, so you’ll just have to interpret it as best as you can. Most days I remember to use the proper words, there, their, or they’re or maybe Sale or Sell, but I don’t promise to be perfect. So, now that you know I ask that you at least be kind in your comments.
I hope you like it, I’d love to read your comments as well, if you have design questions, I’d love to help you answer those questions. I do a lot of free sketches… within reason. If this gets out of control, at some point I will have to charge, but I don’t have that much faith in my blogging abilities at the moment. Hope to see you around!
