(ASSOCIATEDDESIGNS) – Nostalgic Craftsman styling gives the Lincolnshire its comfortably welcoming front facade. Smooth round columns seated on stone veneer bases flank the gently arched entries, and iconic Craftsman windows face the street. Shingle-textured siding adds visual variety on the upper level. The units of this two-story duplex very nearly mirror each other, with the exception of a second gable in unit B that results in a slightly differently shaped bedroom below it. Thus, the description of one unit will apply to both. A gentle down slope leads into the garage, which is about a half-flight lower than the ground floor. Secondary bedrooms and their shared bathroom sit above the garage, where an extra-thick wall boosts the sound buffering. From the driveway, a half-flight of stairs angles up to the vaulted porch. Inside, a convenient powder room is to the left and a coat closet is dead ahead. An opening on the right leads into a large vaulted room that comprises the living and dining areas. An abundance of natural light spills into the space through wide windows front and back. Casual meals and snacks can be served on the raised eating bar that bounds the kitchen and dining room. In warm weather, meals can move onto the patio, through the dining room’s sliding glass doors. Cabinets wrap around three sides of the kitchen, while counters line sections of all four. Working at the kitchen sink, you can keep an eye on the back yard, patio, and dining room. On the opposite side of the dining room, a passageway leads to the Lincolnshire’s owners’ suite, plus a small utility room. In addition to a walk-in closet, the suite includes a private bathroom with a dual vanity, shower, and linen closet. Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search our home plans.
