(ASSOCIATEDDESIGNS) – Stone veneer wainscoting accents the Oak Hill’s three-car garage and covers the bold column supports that bound its wide porch. Wide multipaned windows fill much of the front facade, and a parade of gridded glass runs along the tops of both garage doors. Because this ranch-style home is all on one level, it’s equally well suited for raising children and aging in place. And if someone in your family needs a home office, that’s covered too. Entering, you move forward into a long, high-ceilinged foyer, naturally brightened by sidelights. The home office is through double doors on the right, while a wide opening on the left leads into what could be either a parlor or a dining room. Light washes into both of these front-facing rooms through wide multipaned windows. You can reach the vaulted great room and adjoining kitchen two ways: either by continuing to the end of the foyer, or passing through an opening at the rear of the dining room/parlor. French doors into the great room offer privacy when needed. Rear windows flank a fireplace that provides warmth while creating a colorful and relaxing focal point when skies are gray or dark. Kitchen workers can survey most of the great room and all of the nook and covered patio, looking out across the flush eating bar. A step-in pantry adds to the ample kitchen storage space. Secondary bedrooms and the main bathroom are to the right of the Oak Hill’s family gathering space. They are linked to everything via a long hallway that ends at the double-door entrance to the owners’ suite. Amenities there include a deep walk-in closet and a skylit bathroom with an oversized shower, his-and-hers vanity, and a totally private toilet.
