Crown Jewel 2 (408-45)
The long, rambling facade of the three-story Crown Jewel 2 (408-45) is accented by various looks. Half-moon windows are set in the dormers and the brick bay, and the house features a partial wrap-around covered porch and large three-car garage. Altogether, this five-bedroom, five-bath home invites the visitor to feel welcome in its spacious 3,780 square feet.
The vaulted entry faces the angular staircase in front, the vaulted living room on the right and a vaulted swing room on the left. Swing rooms can be anything from a sewing room or office to a den or library. The formal living room has a corner fireplace and opens into the dining room in the rear.
The rear of this sumptuous home is family-oriented, with a large vaulted family room, a vaulted sun nook and the kitchen. The family room has two large windows for light, while the sun nook has one large window with numerous skylights overhead. Patio doors open onto the rear deck. The kitchen is open with a center island containing an eating bar. A pantry is located behind sliding doors.
A full bath with shower and the upper utility room is between the family room and the swing room. The utility room has a large laundry chute container, a freezer, and a built-in drop-down ironing board. A door to the three-car garage also opens from the utility room.
The right side of the Crown Jewel 2 is the master suite. The main suite has a door that opens onto the rear deck.
Upstairs are three vaulted bedrooms with a full bath. The bathroom has a single sink, a tub and a laundry chute.
Downstairs is the 1,306 square-foot basement, which may be set up for guests or as an in-law suite. There's a full guest suite with a great room, kitchen and utility room. The guest suite has a built-in dresser with a walk-in closet and a guest bath with a disabled-accessible shower. Adjacent is a secondary bath with tub and single sink.
