The minute I saw the covered porch out front, I could imagine this new house showing up in lots of family photos. Everyone would probably want to spend the holidays here.
Despite its size and high end features, I felt this house exuded a kind of old-fashioned warmth. Maybe it’s the way the upstairs bedrooms all angle off the central foyer, the charm of each room’s set-of-three windows, and the fact that there’s a second family room upstairs. It sort of brings the occupants together in a nice way. The kitchen is big and open, and the octagonal tiles on the walls as backsplash are especially pretty in the space. With a substantial, nicely-landscaped yard (with a sport court), the family fun can easily continue outside.
