The innovative design of the 2584-square-foot Millrace presents a floor plan that is not only attractive but functional. This configuration permits a free flow of foot traffic throughout the home.
Step into the barrel-vaulted entry and a cascade of water from the handsome fountain imparts a friendly greeting. Visitors can store coats and rain gear in the nearby closet. Directly behind the fountain, a wood stove spreads warmth into a large, open living room. Vaulted ceilings and twin skylights enhance this cozy area, where family and friends can gather for good conversation or play the latest board game.The walk-through kitchen will certainly please the cook in the house. The abundance of features here allows meals to be prepared and served with ease. Formal meals may be eaten in the adjacent dining room, while the eating bar and nook accommodate less formal occasions. Additional kitchen features include: a large walk-in pantry, appliance center, dishwasher, island cooktop and a generous garden window. When the weather is nice, set up the barbecue on the covered back deck.
The left wing of the home incorporates a small storage room, with built-in ironing board, a modest guest suite with private bath, and the luxurious master suite. Here, the roomy sleeping area is skylighted, as is the private spa. Other amenities include a separate vanity and skylighted private bathroom, with shower and oversized tub.
The right wing has two fair-sized bedrooms, each with ample closet space. A full bath is in between. A staircase in the hallway leads to a 430-square-foot attic.
Make some popcorn, and you and your guests can sit in comfort and watch your favorite movie in the family theater, complete with built-in entertainment center. A sizeable utility room, with deep sink abuts the theater. The two-car garage has a shop-storage area with a long, built-in workbench. Also housed here is the energy efficient solar water heating system.
