As I virtually step into this high-end Craftsman house plan, the first thing that caught my eyes was not the traditional handcrafted charm typical of a craftsman home but the audacious angled two-car garage that seemed to politely nod at every onlooker.
It’s like saying, “Yes, I’m part of the ensemble, but with a twist!”
The charm continues to unravel as I venture further into this cozy yet spacious dwelling of 2,780 square feet that tenderly wraps around 3 to 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths with a storyline spread over one or two floors.
As a fan of anything unusual, the angled garage had me swooning already, but as I sauntered into the vaulted entry porch, a rush of royal vibes washed over me.
The space sings a prelude to the narrative of the house as it unfolds.
The vaulted foyer, modest in size yet high on style (6’6″ by 10′), warmly greeted me with the study and dining room standing like old pals on either side.
The study, with its potential to morph into a fourth bedroom, whispered the word ‘flexibility’ into the architectural scheme of things.
A small wall adjustment and voila, you have another room for the unexpected guests or a growing family.
Venturing further into the belly of this home, I found myself amidst a dramatic shift in scenery.
The family room’s ceiling, vaulting up defiantly in a different direction, seemed to do a poetic dance around the large, hearty fireplace that stood as a proud centerpiece.
The narrative of openness and warmth flowed into the kitchen where a large island seemed to play the perfect host for breakfast banter or evening enthralls.
And, what’s more, it faces the family room allowing a lively exchange between the two spaces.
Imagine sautéing veggies while enjoying the fire’s crackle or the family’s laughter resonating through the rooms – a scene straight out of a feel-good movie!
Now, a craftsman home is known for its attention to detail, and this one leaves no stone unturned, or should I say, no corner unadorned.
The master suite, a tranquil retreat, occupies the right wing of the home.
The tray ceiling seemed to cast a soft, comforting shadow over the space while the deluxe master bathroom (12’6″ by 13′) whispered luxury in every square inch.
The icing on the cake was the master walk-in closet that not only held an island for that extra bit of ‘hoarder’ in all of us but also opened directly into the laundry room through pocket doors – a clever design hack that will make laundry days less of a chore.
Just when I thought the surprises ended, I discovered a bonus space lying quietly over the garage, a haven for the noisy hobbies one might have.
The sound insulation ensured that the tranquility of the rooms below remained undisturbed, making this space a versatile addition to the home, perhaps a home theatre or a gym?
Every corner of this Craftsman house seemed to narrate a story infused with practicality and a zest for aesthetics.
The angled garage was not just a whimsical design choice but a symbol of what lay ahead – spaces blending functionality with imaginative design, carving niches that embraced every member of the family.
As I took a virtual bow and exited this abode, the architectural nuances left a lasting impression, nudging me to appreciate the ingenuity infused in creating homes that are not just houses, but a canvas of countless possibilities.
