The Marseille has a decidedly French Eclectic flavor. Telling elements include: a steeply pitched hip roof, a wrought iron balcony railing, and shutters that flank arched, multi-paned windows. Popular from about 1915 to 1945, this style passed out of fashion for several decades. Neo-eclectic homes regained popularity in the 1960s, and the trend is still growing.
This plan is designed for construction on a lot that slopes up to the left. The garage is one level below the first floor.
Families who enjoy entertaining will delight in the large gathering spaces that fill the main floor. A dining room is to the right of the foyer, and a living room with a fireplace is to the left.
The kitchen, nook, and family room flow together at the rear. This window-rich space has a French door that opens onto a partially covered deck. Four sets of multi-paned windows sparkle across the back wall, and two more border the fireplace.
In the kitchen, a raised eating bar rims the lengthy work island. Cupboards and counters line three sides of the kitchen as well, and lazy Susan shelving makes corner access a breeze.
A handy powder room is near everything, and the generously sized utility room is also close, along with a large recreation room. This room could house a pool table, home entertainment center, etc.
Each of the four bedrooms upstairs has direct access to a bathroom. Bathrooms for the Marseille’s owners’ suite and one additional bedroom are private, while the other two bedrooms share a two-section bathroom. Other owners’ suite amenities include: a roomy walk-in closet, dual vanity, spa tub, and walk-in shower.
