At Home

Courtyard leaves space for landscaping opportunities

The Palm is a design for a mid-sized home that wraps around a lush entryway courtyard.

Bright, airy and spacious throughout, the single-level floor plan is ideal for families who like to entertain. 

Vaulted ceilings and lots of windows add to the feeling of openness in the living room and kitchen. These two rooms run together, and both have a panoramic view to the back of the house. 

A fireplace with a tile or brick hearth defines the boundaries between the formal living room and the family room. If no fireplace is desired, display shelving could be substituted.

Amenities in the kitchen include a raised dishwasher, garden window, deep walk-in pantry, built-in oven and microwave and an island with a stove and grill. 

A wide window that faces into the landscaped courtyard naturally illuminates the nook. Laundry machines, a pull-down ironing board and deep sink are tucked behind pocket doors.

The pantry and two walk-in closets serve as a sound buffer between the kitchen and master suite. The suite has a vaulted ceiling, bayed sitting area, private bathroom and two walk-in closets. 

The bathroom has an oversized shower and a second sink outside the enclosed section.

Storage closets line the hallway that leads to the other bedrooms at the opposite end of the house. 

The entryway is also rich with storage space, with a coat closet on one side and a bench on the other, which is handy for removing and stashing muddy footwear.

The guest bedroom is large and has a private bathroom with an oversized shower and double vanity. 

The main bathroom serves the family living area and third bedroom. Its location is convenient to the garage and front entryway. 

Storage space and a workbench are at the back of the garage, one step up from the parking area.
