(ASSOCIATEDDESIGNS) – Arched openings accent the graceful porch colonnade that greets visitors to the Kendall, a medium-size home that offers plenty of family living space, both formal and informal. Its tile roof and stucco exterior are redolent of sunny climes. Owners of the home could confine their living to the ground floor, if they wish, since the owners’ suite is on this level. This leaves the second floor for children, visiting grandchildren, and/or other guests. These rooms could also be used for offices or hobby space, if desired. A long custom-shaped eating bar provides partial separation between the kitchen and the nook. Otherwise this area is wide open, and offers easy access to the screened porch and patio. Vaulted to the second floor, the family room and dining room are bathed in natural light from a wealth of windows. Flames in the corner fireplace offer welcome warmth and boost flagging spirits on gray days and dark nights. The curved second floor landing forms a unique bridge that overlooks the family room to the back, and the dining room and entryway to the front. Holiday and formal gatherings can spread out in the spacious dining room and parlor. The front parlor is brightened by a wide bay window that fronts the covered porch. The owners’ suite features access to the wide patio, and has a private bathroom with a walk-in closet, raised spa, and separately enclosed shower and toilet. Two large bedrooms, one of them vaulted, share a two-section bathroom upstairs. Since each section has its own vanity, two can use the bathroom at once in relative privacy. The Kendall’s utility room and powder room are equally convenient to the kitchen and the two-car garage. Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search our home plans. A review plan of the Kendall 11-092, including floor plans, elevations, section, and artist’s conception, can be purchased for $25.
