A welcoming front porch enhances the comfortably familiar country styling of the one-and-a-half story Ontario. Because its three-car garage is entered via side access, no garage doors distract from this inviting exterior.
Inside, a convenient half-bathroom is to the right of the entry, and a den/office is to the left. This configuration is ideal for use as an office for a home business with occasional clients. They need only step into the entry to get to the office. A deep storage closet fills the space under the stairs.
Moving through the entry hall, you come to the great room and kitchen, after passing a utility room on the right, opposite a passageway to the owners’ suite on the left. The utility room comes complete with a deep sink, and also serves as a pass-through link to the garage.
The kitchen sits at the heart of the home. From the sink work island, kitchen workers can look out into the bright and lofty vaulted great room, the patio, and the dining room. A raised eating bar rims the dining room’s interface, while a slightly narrower counter fronts the great room. Storage aplenty is available in the step-in pantry that fills one corner.
In the great room, a fireplace nestles into a rear corner next to a stack of high windows that fill most of the rear wall. The lower sections of glass slide open to provide easy, breezy access to the Ontario’s vaulted and covered patio.
Owners’ suite amenities include a large walk-in closet, plus a two-section bathroom with a dual vanity and enclosed toilet and shower. Two more bedrooms are upstairs, along with a third bathroom. Skylights brighten the upper bathroom, stairs and hallway.
