For those who love outdoor living, this raised cottage will bring back memories of Grandmother's house with its grand front and rear porches. The porches are not just for looks because they are sized to accommodate those old swings or rocking chairs, the elements of truly enjoyable living. The interior is open and airy to make it bright and inviting. The master suite is grand and has a sitting area and an adjoining bath complete with bathing tub, separate shower, private toilet, twin vanities, a giant walk-in closet and even a bath appliance garage for storing those unsightly items like hair dryers. The utility is situated between the master suite and the kitchen to save mom countless steps when fulfilling those daily laundry chores. There is even a door from the utility to the bath room so delivering clean towels to the linen cabinet is only two steps away. The kitchen is compact but open and fully appointed including an eating bar, pantry and a bay window eating area. The two secondary bedrooms are adequate size and both have nice walk-in closets plus easy access to the spacious hall bath. All equipment is housed in its own private room to reduce noise and for easy servicing without the need to access the homes interior. Did I mention this is also a super energy saving home featuring 2x6 exterior walls.
