With a front-entry garage and a slim width, this two-story design is ideal for a narrow lot. Arched garage doors add character while a mix of stone, shakes and siding bring dimension to the exterior. Inside, luxury features abound with a drop zone, butler’s pantry and a large storage pantry. Skylights top the rear porch and the master bedroom and bathroom to flood these spaces with natural light.

The master suite and a bedroom/study are downstairs while two bedrooms and a bonus room complete the second floor.
