Plan Details

A handsomely detailed brick gable above the entrance provides the focus for this elegant assortment of traditional forms.

Inside the front door, a wide staircase with open balustrades divides the formal dining room on the right from the great room to the left. The large great room, with a fireplace and built-in cabinets on its longest wall, is open to the breakfast area and kitchen, creating a flowing space that extends the width of the central wing. French doors open to the deck and rear lawn. The attached mudroom wing with a laundry area and powder room and offers a convenient rear entrance into the kitchen. The master bedroom, a large walk-in closet, and the master bath are secluded in their own wing. The master bath features dual sinks, a glass shower, and an oversize tub.

The main staircase leads up to a second-floor which overlooks the entry below. A hall bathroom separates two bedrooms, each with its own large closet and dormer windows facing to the front and rear. A back staircase from the mud room provides access to a large bonus room under the garage eaves.

The classic1-1/2 story Cape form conveys a timeless charm and, and the Melrose offers the convenience of a second entrance through an expanded mudroom. Plans for this house have been carefully drawn and include authentic details. The layout combines a smooth flow and an efficient use of space. All of the rooms have large windows and will accommodate optimal furniture arrangements.
