This small but still comfortable Craftsman House is an excellent option for a small and practical family. Even more, its layout features make it the perfect choice for a retired couple expecting kids to visit on holidays. The layout displays a main gathering area as the heart of the house. Also, we designed it to enjoy the views from the backyard. Also, we added a Covered Patio out of that gathering space to enjoy the outdoor living.
Firstly, when you face the house, you will find a tall double gable. It emphasizes the main area inside, also defining the main entrance to the house. That Main Entrance is crowned by a wood beams gable and framed by stained wood columns. Windows and a half glassed door give the see-through effect that lets us see the backyard through the great room when standing at the front door.
That covered entrance leads us straight to the main area. The Foyer is seamlessly incorporated into the Great Room. So, when we get it, we start to enjoy the open space. The Great Room contains the Dining Room that faces the front of the house while the Living Room and the Kitchen faces the patio. the Great Room also displays a beautiful set of windows and French doors. The vaulted ceiling open room on the gable to set up high windows inviting natural light from the backyard.
The Great Room opens to the Covered Patio through gorgeous french doors that allow us to connect the indoor and outdoor spaces. That space is large enough to accommodate furniture options. We also have an outdoor sitting bar area with a pass-through window that opens up from the kitchen..
The Kitchen has a straight-line layout. It displays a Walk-in Pantry, the gas range in the middle, and a refrigerator on the opposite side. There is also a Center Island that allows stool chairs for four people, a sink, Dishwasher, and an under-counter Microwave.
The Private Spaces are not particularly large. In fact, this house only has two bedrooms and an office. We have a Full Bathroom shared by the studio, the bedroom. Also, invites can use that bathroom as a powder room from the Great Room.
This house has a 2 car garage with access to the Mud Room, which we integrated with the Laundry Room.
Finally, on the Exterior, we went with Brick and Stones on dark earth tones containing with tan-colored stucco accents on the gables. The framing for doors and windows are stained wood color as well as the casings. We went with a brown shingle roof that gives that traditional appeal to the house. A detailed trim work shows all around the house as accents and remembrance of the traditional Craftsman House that inspired us.
As usual, the multi-awarded builder, Ceci Bates Custom Houses, will build this New Craftsman – Custom House Design in Rock Creek, Gordonville. You can also check out the sketches that gave birth to this house,
