Chrystal Bay (D8138)


Because today's lots have become so narrow, it is exciting when a home meets that need and looks great, too. The Chrystal Bay (D8138) is a two-story home with a footprint of 29'-4" by 50'-0" deep. It has a country farm style look with a covered porch and a two-car garage.

Guests walk into a large, great room covering the entire left side of the main floor. It provides an excellent space for entertaining. The room has a rear fireplace with windows on each side. The light that pours in from these two windows gives the room a feeling of spaciousness.

A staircase separates the great room from the rest of the home. It gives access to the upstairs part of the home, as well as to an optional unfinished basement. The basement is 802 square feet and could give this 1,852-square-foot home more bedrooms or a possible recreation/family room.

The nook has two large windows in the rear that bathe the room in light and make it a great place to share meals. Located between the great room and the nook, there is a door that opens to the rear deck

The kitchen is C-shaped, with a center island. The eating bar faces the nook with the sink in the same area. There is plenty of counter space to make preparing meals easier.

A corner pantry next to the garage makes carrying in groceries easy. Also adjacent to the great room and the kitchen, is a half-bath.

The upstairs is dedicated to bedrooms. There are three regular bedrooms along with the master suite. Bedrooms 3 and 4 each have large windows and a wall closets. They are directly opposite a full-bath with a tub. Between bedrooms 2 and 3, are the washer and dryer, tucked away in a separate room. Bedroom 2 has a walk-in closet and a window.

The master suite is almost square and has two windows facing the rear. The master bath is enormous with "his and her" sinks, as well as a vanity and an oversized tub. The shower and the toilet are in a separate room. The large walk-in closet is across from the sinks and vanity.
