The bright and light kitchen is open to a sun-filed informal breakfast/dining area and the family room. The open floor plan is strategically designed to provide an uninterrupted view from the back of the informal dining room through the kitchen and family room to the patio and backyard, accessed by sliding French doors.
The informal large breakfast/dining area with its high paned windows and transoms is wonderful. In the shape of a octogon, the room is open on two of its opposite sides. On one, there is access to two back doors, 2nd half bath, bonus room and garage. The other side opens seamlessly into the kitchen.
The gorgeous yet functional kitchen is shown off with white cabinets, white-glazed subway backsplash tiles, dark granite countertops, new Bosch appliances, 48" side-by-side Sub-Zero, a huge center island and buffet/bar setting area with sink. The center seating island with Bosch cooktop is one of the most used features by this family, their friends and guests. Light filters in through two large-paned windows, as well as indirectly from the informal dining and family rooms.
The 10.5' high ceiling family room that is an extension of the kitchen, it’s also accessed from the formal entry hallway. It does balance perfectly the relaxed kitchen atmosphere with the hallway's formal design. Its toned down and cozy earth tone palette is brightened by a lighter wood wall unit and great visibility to the outdoors through expansive pane windows and sliding French doors with transoms. A wood burning fireplace is used throughout the colder months and outside a patio that runs along the entire house hosts summer barbecue family get together and parties. The open floor plan that includes the kitchen, informal dining and the family room has been conducive for entertaining and more intimate quality time with the family (see the owners’ “what we like about your home” link) .
