Glen Eden exudes warmth, Craftsman charm

The Glen Eden is an updated Craftsman home that’s well suited for construction in both rural and suburban settings. Eye-catching design elements include multiple gables, shake-textured siding, varied window treatments, and stone-veneer encrusted tapered entry columns capped by welcoming lights.

Its metal roof is more durable than most other roofing materials, while offering above average protection from wind-blown wildfire sparks. This will be most appreciated for homes built as vacation lodges or ranch homes in country settings where fire danger is of greater concern.

Most rooms are richly glassed and have vaulted ceilings, so the house seems much more spacious than its 1500+ square feet. At the top of the porch steps, a set of French double doors open into a vaulted screened porch. It spans the front and wraps around to the left, where it segues into a windowed hallway leading to a vaulted home office with a private entrance near a mini-bathroom. A good-sized closet fills half of one wall.

From the screened porch, two sets of double doors open into the great room. Flames in the fireplace at its rear serve as a warm, inviting focal point on chilly days and dark nights. Stacked shelves flank the fireplace. The room’s vaulted apex runs down the center of the room, lining up perfectly with the center of the fireplace. Walls slope down to the left and right.

Another set of double doors open into the vaulted kitchen off of the screened porch. Counters and built-ins wrap around three sides, while the space they surround is roomy enough for a large family-size table.

Ceilings slope down rearward in the Glen Eden’s vaulted back bedrooms. A bathroom and a laundry room are nearby.
