Cedar shakes mix with siding and stone to create a richly textural Craftsman exterior. This floor plan is ideal for large or growing families with open living spaces making it easy to be together. The master suite and a bedroom/study are downstairs while three large bedrooms with walk-in closets are upstairs. A second-floor pocket office is a great space for children to complete homework or projects and a bonus room provides additional square footage for recreation or storage.

Expect royal-treatment from the master suite with a vast, tray ceiling topped bedroom, abundant closet space, and an opulent bath. The second floor offers secondary bedrooms, a bonus room, and a convenient laundry chute. Bonus space on the third floor is a treat for the homeowner to add a home theater, game room, or gym.
