This compact home is well suited for today’s smaller subdivision lot. The gabled roof covered front veranda and stone and shingle accents lend character to the exterior, while inside, an efficient layout includes everything we’ve come to expect in a contemporary family home.

The covered front entry leads to a foyer with a coat closet on the right, as well as a niche for displaying art and collectibles. Directly ahead of the foyer is the great room, where the gas fireplace is placed so it will cast its warmth into the dining area and kitchen.

The dining area enjoys a large window, as well as a sliding glass door that opens on to a covered patio, making outdoor meals a breeze during the warmer months.

The kitchen is separated from the great room and dining area by a three-seat eating bar and prep island. The double sink is set into a corner, so natural light will enter through two windows. The L-shaped counter configuration promises efficiency, and a double-doored pantry will provide extra storage space.

A powder room is tucked around the corner from the foyer and beyond it, the laundry room has access to the two-car garage. The garage also has a door opening to the backyard.

Up the U-shaped staircase, the master suite stretches across the back of the second floor and features a window with an extra deep sill, as well as a roomy walk-in closet. The en-suite bathroom includes a shower stall as well as a soaker tub, a great spot to relax after a long day.

The two secondary bedrooms share a three-piece bathroom. One of these bedrooms overlooks the front garden, while the other boasts a window with an extra-deep sill.

Exterior finishes include wooden shingles in the gables and on the upper storey, contrasting with horizontal siding on the rest of the façade. Stone-based pilasters decorate the front porch and the back patio. The front door is flanked by sidelights.

This home measures 37 feet, six inches wide and 51 feet, six inches deep for a total of 1,650 square feet.
