Rooms that are really lived in, comfortable for two people yet can accommodate two dozen. A kitchen fun to work in, filled with the latest appliances but reflecting old world charm. Convenient pantry closet, a butler's pantry/bar, ample mud room, wine storage, a household management desk; and the little refinements are there, even a spot for a dog door. Also on the first floor a library/office room providing shut the door privacy and quiet. This room could add an optional bath for a guest bedroom.
The gracious master suite is on the second floor but it is reassuring to know that an elevator is in easy option. Two other bedrooms with it then will be on the second floor as well.
In addition, a large space over the grind can be finished into a studio, a home office, and attractive place for grandchildren to play for an in law suite. A front garden greets guests while the rear terrace faces the southern sun. A compact line with landscaping that pleases the eye, and is easy to maintain.
Filled with the architectural charm of the past, these houses really represent a step into the future. The "Small House that Lives Big" offers a lifestyle a growing number of us are looking for.
