If you’re searching for a small starter home with a spacious feel, the Kenton just might fill the bill. What’s more, it is equally well suited to singles or families looking to downsize their living space, expenses and maintenance obligations. Less to take care of equals more time for fun!
In the United States, ranch-style homes surged in popularity following their inception in the 1950s. For several decades after that, they dominated the home building field. The Kenton is an update of this now-traditional style. A slender post and a bank of multipaned windows add charm to its front facade.
Entering, you find yourself in a large and naturally bright great room that comprises the living room, dining room and kitchen. Its vaulted ceiling slopes up from the front, crests above the kitchen’s work island, then slopes down toward the dining room and the rest of the L-shaped kitchen at the rear.
Light spills in through the expansive front window plus four side windows. Still more washes in through French doors at the rear, and another wide window over the sink. The doors open onto a covered deck, which could be screened, if flying insects are bothersome during outdoor meals.
Laundry appliances are conveniently located in a utility room that sits at the juncture of the shared living spaces and the more private sleeping areas. Owners’ suite amenities include a walk-in closet and a private bathroom with an oversized shower. Secondary bedrooms share a bathroom that has a combination tub and shower.
From inside the Kenton’s two-car garage, you can enter the home directly, through a door that opens in right next to the coat closet and front entry.
