Craftsman style home was designed on a lot with an existing older home, previously removed. The new home was constructed by a developer as a speculative project and considering the state of the market and the how quickly the house was sold, is an example of how well designed homes can influence sales and market value. The design program was based on two story configuration with Main floor Great room, open floor concept to promote casual entertainment. The main floor also included formal dining room and library. Gourmet kitchen is designed with a walk-in Pantry and connected to the formal dining room through the built-in butler pantry. The kitchen was also connected to the three car garage through a well planned Mud room space which includes a computer center, guest powder bath and ample amount of storage space for seasonal clothing. The second floor provided the space for the master suite plus a junior suite in addition of two bedrooms with common (Jack & Jill) bathroom and the laundry room. As part of the design program, the space above the garage was designed and constructed as a useable bonus space. The space was enhanced with dormers to provide additional light, ventilation and provided the additional exterior appeal. The open rail stair adjacent to the two story Foyer provided the perception of greater sense of entry, connecting the main floor to the floor above. The lower lever was designed to have full height window, by carefully designing the house main floor elevation above the front yard grade. Then space provides additional entertainment space, including a wet bar, family room and a spare bed room and bath.
