Plan Description

The rich history and classic appeal of the Dutch style is apparent in this five-bedroom design from Visbeen Associates, beginning with the eye-catching gambrel roof. The columned porch off the island kitchen offers a wonderful place to enjoy your morning coffee, while a large screened porch in back is perfect for an al fresco meal. Other main-floor features include a two-sided fireplace between the living room and den, and a convenient guest suite off the entryway. Upstairs, bathe in light in the master suite's bumped-out bathroom, which connects via a dressing room to the large segmented walk-in closet. Three additional bedroom suites (one a bunk room, two with private patios) reside up here, all with access to the central sitting room. If finished, the lower level houses a variety of options for relaxing, including a wet bar and billiards room. An optional elevator helps everyone get around.
