Welcome to a home with a modern — yet traditional — flair, The Brennan, designed by Blythe Custom Homes.
This home fits perfectly with a relaxed lake lifestyle. From the outside, it has a very traditional vibe with rows of beautiful windows accented by the dormer on the roof. The front and back porches provide great places to gather outside.
When you step into the foyer, it is open to the formal dining room and has a sweet little area near the steps that is perfect for a loveseat or welcoming bench. Trimmed with white-painted wood paneling and wainscoting, the dining room is ready for entertaining. Rustic wide-planked hardwood floors continue throughout the home, adding an organic, earthy feel.
With this open floor plan, everyone can participate in what’s happening in the kitchen and living space. For more casual dining, you have the option of the breakfast nook area or the eat-in kitchen island complete with a quartz countertop. Or, venture outside on the screened-in porch on a balmy evening to enjoy seeing the incredible lake view while eating al fresco.
The great room offers a beautiful fireplace with built-in cabinets and shelves on each side and wood paneling accents. And in the mud room/catch-all space near the garage and laundry, there’s a bench with cubbies to collect everyone’s belongings and a gorgeous dry bar with an under-the-counter wine cooler in easy reach of the living area.
We also love that this floor plan has two first-floor suites. You can have your luxurious space on the ground floor and also accommodate guests without having to worry about them going up and down the stairs. If you don’t need the space for guests, this can also make a beautiful home office space or study room.
Upstairs, you’ll discover a fun loft area overlooking the stairway. One of the three bedrooms on the second floor has a private full bath and the other two have access to a hall bath. There’s also a handy walk-in attic space for storage. No pull-down ladder needed.
