Brookfield is a farmhouse with great room

By
From page HS7 | August 16, 2013 |

The Brookfield, with its shuttered windows and inviting front porch, is an update of a traditional American country farmhouse. This large two-story plan boasts more than 5,000 square feet of living space and is best suited for construction on rural or semi-rural acreage.

Entering, you step into a wide vaulted space that begins as a foyer and quickly transitions into a much wider vaulted great room. Natural light spills in through multipaned windows front and back, and more washes down through eight arched dormer windows, bathing the entire area in natural light.

French doors on the foyer’s right lead into a hallway lined with storage closets and a powder room, plus a private den. This hallway continues on to the deluxe owners’ suite, complete with a dressing room, laundry appliances, fireplace, spa or soaking tub, and walk-in shower.

A wide bay window expands the dining room, which is open on one side to the great room, and on another side to a kitchen with two islands and a roomy walk-in pantry. One island has a built-in prep sink, is rimmed by a raised conversation bar, and is close to a wood stove. The more central island is larger, outfitted with a cook top, and rimmed by an eating counter.

French doors in the dining room open onto a vaulted, screened porch with skylights. This porch is also accessible through a French door in the mud hall. A wide patio spans most of the rear.

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs in the Brookfield, along with a spacious recreation room with a raised beverage bar. An inner balcony at the stair landing overlooks the great room. A bonus room with skylights and an exterior balcony is on the opposite side of the great room.
