Bakersfield enhances living inside and out

Associated Designs

Brick veneer, corner quoins, Craftsman-style windows, and a trio of gables blend harmoniously to create the Bakersfield’s inviting front facade. Decorative corbels draw eyes to the lone wooden post that highlights this ranch-style home’s covered porch.

Entering, you step into a vaulted entry with a wide coat closet to the left. Secondary bedrooms and a full bathroom with combination tub and shower are to the right. The rear bedroom has a walk-in closet. Next to it is a media closet, designed to house and hide the living room’s inevitable tangle of media cords and devices.

Ahead, the passageway that angles off to the left accesses three rooms. Left to right they include a media room/study/home office, the kitchen, and a free-flowing vaulted great room that comprises the living room and dining room. Standing at the kitchen sink, you face into the dining room and great room across a raised, and gently curved, eating bar.

A roomy walk-in pantry is to the left, along with a laundry nook, small bathroom, and direct access to the three-car garage. Basement and attic stairs are also in this cluster.

French doors at the rear of the dining area swing open to offer easy access to a large covered patio. Bookshelves flank the short hallway on the left that leads to the owners’ suite. Shelves and poles line the suite’s large walk-in closet. The rear door that opens onto the Bakersfield’s patio will be especially appreciated if the owners decide to install a hot tub there.

In the owners’ bathroom, a sliding door creates a totally private toilet section. Light spills in through the small window there over the bench opposite the toilet. A dual lavatory and oversized shower fill the larger compartment.
