The McKinley conjures up images of charming cottages when first seen from the outside, with graceful porch entries and beautiful exterior details. Yet inside, this is still a spacious three- to four-bedroom home with two bathrooms, plenty of storage, a two- to three-car garage, and 1982 square feet.
You enter the home through the front door with transom and side windows into a convenient entryway. From here, you can access directly into the den, which works as a great reading room, home office, or it can also be converted into a fourth bedroom. From the entry, you continue either directly into the heart of the home beneath a coffered ceiling hallway, or you can turn to the side where you’ll find a coat closet, linen closet, a full bathroom, and two additional bedrooms. Between the bedrooms you’ll find yet another linen closet conveniently located for both the bedrooms and bathroom.
If you follow the coffered ceiling hallway, it will lead you directly to the great room, which has its own coffered ceiling to define the area and give it a beautiful sense of architectural style. The great room and kitchen feature an open-plan layout, while still having a sense of boundaries through both the coffered ceiling and the large kitchen island that helps to frame the kitchen space. The spacious kitchen includes a walk-in pantry and plenty of cupboards and cabinets for storage, and then extends into a nook that is perfect for dining. The nook can even be extended for a larger dining area or a combination of dining and entertainment.
Just off the great room is a barrel arch entry to the part of the home where you’ll find the primary bedroom suite. Along with a large bedroom area, the suite includes a primary bathroom with a soaking tub, separate shower, dual-sink vanity, a separate water closet, and a large walk-in closet. For added convenience, the laundry room is located off the primary bedroom suite and has a door that connects to the garage.
