At Home

Design suitable for families starting out

A growing family looking for a first home need not look further than the 1,145 square foot Oxbow design. 

Not only is the open floor design enticing, but the handsome exterior makes street appeal a big plus. The Oxbow will also fit the special needs of empty nesters wanting smaller quarters.

The covered front porch of the design features an attractive railing. To the right of the recessed entryway is the kitchen and dining area. A large picture window delivers a clear view of the surrounding landscape. 

The U-shaped kitchen has all the built-in appliances, a sizable pantry and a garden window.

To the left of the entryway, the isolated master suite guarantees privacy. 

There is plenty of room here, with 152 square feet of sleeping area, a private bathroom and a spacious walk-in closet. Extra closet space is on hand just outside of the master suite.

Directly in front of the entryway and between the bedrooms is the living room — the main gathering place in the home. There is access from this space to a patio on the back side of the house.

Two identical bedrooms, separated by a full bathroom, have nice-sized windows and ample closet space. 

For those without children at home, these rooms can serve many functions. They can be sealed off until guests are present, or converted into a home office, library, sewing or exercise room.

The washer and dryer are located in the garage. A separate entry into the house allows you to carry groceries directly into the kitchen.
