The house featured here is a modern mid-century ranch built nearly 70 years ago that revolutionized the design of the house at the time.
The entrance is via a large driveway that can accommodate six vehicles, an L-shaped walkway and patio (both red bricks), and a cobalt blue front door.
Foyer flooring is a ceramic tile with radiant heat. In fact, the house has several heat sources. Most of the structure is warmed by the radiant heat of petroleum, but the master bedroom and family rooms have electric baseboards. The family room also has a pellet stove.
Directly in front of the lobby is a living room that sinks back and forth. Here the floor switches to oak, and a wood-burning fireplace with a wooden box and narrow white bricks helps to form a half wall that separates the space from the kitchen / dining area two steps above. Built-in cabinets line the wall opposite the fireplace, with exposed beams crossing the vaulted ceiling dotted with embedded lighting.
The dining area, represented by drum shade lighting fixtures and ceramic tiles on the barn’s wooden exterior, now has a table for six next to a pair of windows overlooking the backyard.
Ceramic tiles efficiently utilize 198 square feet, following a rectangular kitchen. The first starts with a white cabinet with silver pulls on almost every inch. Some upper cabinets have elaborate glass panel doors to split the white, which reflects the sunlight shining through the skylights. The appliances are stainless steel, the counters are covered with lunar white granite, the backsplash is Carrara marble, and the sink is located in front of the bay window.
The doorway outside the dining area leads to a 383-square-foot family room with sharp ceilings, lofts, brick mantels and a pellet stove with three windows. Built-in shelves line one wall. The current owner is working on creating a beach environment and has painted oak panels white. However, the flooring is oak. There is a door on the right side of the house, and the stairs lead to the loft, which can be used as a storage space.
Fun facts From Benjamin Moore’s “Sea Salt” to Veil’s “Sand Drift”, all paint colors in the house follow the beach theme.
The doorway away from the kitchen leads to the bathroom / laundry and the primary suite. The bathroom has a flush toilet, a bathroom with a saddlestone countertop, and a shower behind the curtain. Flooring is a ceramic tile with radiant heat.
The master bedroom is 229 square feet and features a pair of windows, an angled ceiling with embedded lighting, and carpet, but two of the best features are hidden behind the door. Office with suite and storage.
The other bedrooms and bonus rooms in the house are on the other side of the house and pass through the arched entrance to the living room. Each space can function as a bedroom, but the house is allowed as a septic tank with 3 bedrooms. Rooms range from 122 to 156 square feet and have closets and hardwood floors. They share a single bathroom with a saddlestone countertop, a ceramic tile floor with radiant heat, and a bath with a shower / bath combo.
The living room slider opens to a 453 sq ft railless composite deck with hot tubs (installed in 2021).
On the premises are hydrangeas, wild raspberries, rows of blackberry bushes, shrubs and the aforementioned chicken coop.
