#ALP-01RL The Ellington Craftsman House Plan
Four gables, each accented by a decorative corbel, give an open, friendly look to the Ellington. Gentle arches, Craftsman-style windows and stone veneer wainscoting all add to the exterior appeal. With the exception of the bonus room (or bedroom) over the garage, this is a single level plan. A bright and spacious vaulted living area fills the entire center of this home. Sunlight spills into the living room from the rear through two windows and atrium glass doors, and when skies darken, the gas fireplace serves as a warm, colorful focal point. The doors access a patio or deck, and provide plenty of air circulation when needed. Dining room and kitchen are next to each other, partially separated by a raised eating bar. Family and friends will enjoy sitting here, especially while food is being prepared. Standing at the sink, you've got a panoramic view of the gathering spaces as well as the patio and landscape outside. Utilities are nearby, hidden behind a pocket door. Because this large space connects to the garage, it also doubles as a mudroom and is handy for unloading groceries in safety, out of the rain, snow, or what have you. Families with muddy-pawed dogs will particularly appreciate this space. Double doors next to a charming arched display cove open into the Ellington's luxurious master suite. In addition to direct patio access, notable features include: a huge walk-in closet, twin vanity, a spa tub awash in the soft light filtered through glass blocks, and separately enclosed shower and toilet. Stairs from the kitchen lead up to a skylit bonus room with a half bath.
