HOUSE OF THE WEEK: Stone adds plenty of visual interest to home
Keystone arches, stone veneer columns and custom Craftsman windows give the Hastings an intriguing front facade, and the stone slab bench adds to the visual interest. This large home offers 3,353 square feet of living area, plus a roomy garage and an immense skylit bonus room.
Natural light spills into the wide foyer through sidelights and transoms. The foyer, parlor and living room feel even more spacious than their ample square footage, due to lofty two-story ceilings. The stairway leads to a loft that overlooks the living room. A handy laundry chute up here delivers soiled items to the utility room downstairs.
Double doors on the right open into a parlor, while an open passageway on the left leads to a large coat closet, then on to the owners’ suite. Straight ahead is a huge living room brightened by trios of Craftsman windows stacked three high. A gas fireplace and capacious entertainment center completely fill one wall.
Bay windows expand a dining room that is completely open to the kitchen and offers access to a covered patio. A wine refrigerator, wine cabinet and desk are built-in, near the powder room and passthrough utility room.
Counters wrap around three sides of the roomy kitchen. Other features of note include a work island with a raised conversation bar, and an exceptionally large pantry and wine cellar.
The Hastings’ owners’ suite fills the entire left wing, front to back. The sleeping area is roomy enough to hold a couch and easy chairs, as well as a king-size bed, and it has two expansive walk-in closets, one with a built-in dresser and ironing board.
Each of the upstairs bedrooms has a private lavatory plus a walk-in closet.
