Unique Design Lab : 2 Story Home on a narrow deep lot

The Site - The Home was built on a fifty foot wide by 175 foot deep lot. The Home is only 28 feet wide as a there is a 7 foot setback on one side and a 15 foot drive on the other. A two car garage is sited 120 feet deep onto the lot. The 37 by 50 square area behind the garage was left primitive,(2 Valencia oranges, a lemon and a persimmon) to allow future owners to express themselves with a garden or a swimming pool. (The first owner installed a formal garden and a Jacuzzi whirlpool hot tub. The second owner installed a swimming pool.)

The Floor Plan - The Entry door is situated at one end of a 100 square foot porch. The porch has become a comfortable family gathering area in the evenings and during pleasant weather. Directly upon entering one may either go upstairs (to the master suite), to the left (into the vaulted living area) or go to the right (to the kitchen, family area, bedrooms and bath). Public and private zones are well defined.

Amenities- The entire upper floor is master suite and includes a compartmentalized full bathroom, a walk in closet, a fireplace and vaulted ceilings. Pullman kitchen has ample work and storage space with custom built European style cabinets and tile counter tops with built in dishwasher, microwave, oven and stove top. Family area includes fireplace. 3 bedrooms downstairs, a full bathroom and laundry area tucked into a nook in the hallway complete the amenities.

The Finishes - The Staircase handrail, balustrade, newel posts are solid oak as are the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors. The base molding and trim are oak. The doors are wood panel. The windows are dual glazed gliders with dividers. Full height mirror wardrobe doors were installed. Fireplace mantel finished in oak. Fireplace surround and hearth finished in white marble. Stain of red oak slightly orange with a compliment of blue found in carpet, linoleum and tile.
