This home was designed to accommodate a large family with ample space provided in all the right places. Notable features include the dedicated home office, great room, expansive and unique kitchen layout with walk-in pantry, and the dining room with windows on all sides. The owner’s entry with built-in bench and coat hooks along with the walk-in closet provide room for the whole family’s storage needs. The four-car, double tandem garage was driven by the home’s  adjacency to Chatfield Reservoir, knowing that boat storage would be a highly desirable amenity.

The bedroom level was efficiently designed with a loft at the top of the stairs and a central laundry with direct access from the master closet. Four-sided architectural appeal is a key element to the success of this home and that was achieved by designing the second-floor layout simultaneously along with the elevation to ensure that not only great function, but a strong curb appeal was achieved. The wrap-around front porch engages the street and enhances the farmhouse character. The rear porch provides a great outdoor living space as well as enhances the rear elevation.
