A harmonious melding of Craftsman and contemporary features gives the Pinedale a look that is both distinctive and intriguing.
The home's wide profile and three-car garage are clearly reflective of recent trends. Classic Craftsman touches include: graceful geometric upper window sashes, decorative gable supports, and simple squared posts supported by tapered stone veneer bases.
At its core is a vaulted and skylit living room rimmed by wide rear windows. This is a bright and spacious gathering space. Potted plants thrive on the shelf that spans openings to the foyer and dining room. Flames and warmth from the two-sided gas fireplace can be enjoyed from the living room, kitchen and nook.
Working in this kitchen, you need never feel isolated. A raised conversation bar is all that separates the kitchen from the living room, and the patio is in clear view as well.
Counters and cupboard space are amply supplied. A large work island is at center, with long counters, lazy Susan shelving, and two pantries wrapping around three sides. In the nook, a built-in desk nestles into an alcove that can be hidden behind bifold doors.
Utilities are nearby in a large passthrough that connects to the garage. One of three bathrooms is down a short hallway, convenient to this end of the house. Stairs lead upstairs to a large bonus room over the garage.
The Pinedale has four bedrooms. Its guest suite could serve as a small home office, if needed, or be used as a hobby room. The large owners' suite boasts a huge walk-in closet, a sunny sitting room and a private patio. Window seats expand both secondary bedrooms.
