This charming cottage features a center dormer over the front porch entry and multiple gables accented with cedar shakes, stone, and decorative brackets. Hallways are minimized in the interior, maximizing usable square footage. The cathedral great room is highlighted with a rear facing bay window and the screened porch with summer kitchen takes entertaining outdoors. The u-shaped kitchen centers around an island that overlooks the dining room. A pantry and storage closets are nearby. The master bedroom enjoys a tray ceiling and a walk-in closet is located within the master bathroom, simplifying morning routines. Two additional bedrooms are located on the same side of the home as the master suite, perfect for families with small children, while still providing privacy to each bedroom. The utility room is spacious and offers access from the outdoors with a covered entry. Above the garage, find a bonus room with plenty of natural light coming in from dormer windows. A storage closet is available making this ideal for a future guest suite.
