Gabled porches and Craftsman windows are showcased in the Donovan, a modern two-story duplex with a country cottage look. Brick veneer bases support slender wooden posts that frame the front porches and support their nostalgic gabled roofs.
Only the garages and covered patios share a common wall, so each unit’s interior is well isolated from sounds in the other. Because unit A and unit B are mirror images of each other, descriptions of one will cover the other as well.

Entering, you step into a large open area where the dining room, living room and kitchen flow together. Plenty of natural light washes in through two sets of wide windows that face the street. Near the stairs, a fireplace is nestled into the living room’s rear corner.

Standing at the kitchen sink, you’re at the center of everything. You can chat with family and friends seated at the eating bar, while keeping tabs on activities in the dining and living areas. Cupboards wrap around two sides of the kitchen. Cabinets beneath the work island counter, plus a step-in pantry, add to this abundance of storage space.

The owners’ suite and utility room fill the back. An under-the-stairway storage area expands the roomy walk-in closet there.
The suite’s bathroom has two doors. One opens off of the hallway, and the other provides direct access from the owners’ bedroom. The garage links to the utility room, which is just a few steps from the kitchen. This feature comes in handy when unloading groceries in stormy weather.

Two bedrooms, a second bathroom and a wide storage closet are upstairs. The Donovan’s front bedroom is slightly larger.
