Visually exploring the European-style Littlefield is downright enjoyable. Rectangular stacked stone veneer covers much of the front facade and flanks the garage door. Soldier courses of raised brick contribute outlining and textural contrast, as does the wavy wrought iron railing that rims the porch. Classic keystones accent the arches that highlight two front windows, the widest of which boasts a particularly graceful gothic transom.
Natural light washes into the foyer through slender sidelights. French doors on the right swing open to access a room that could be a dining room, parlor, or perhaps a home office.
Straight ahead is a richly windowed gathering space that comprises the great room, kitchen and nook. The gas fireplace offers warmth and color on dark days and chilly nights. Standing at the kitchen sink, you can chat with folks at the conversation bar, enjoy the fireplace flames, serve informal meals on the raised eating bar, and keep tabs on activities inside and out.
Via the transverse hallway right past the dining room, you can reach any room in the house. Three bedrooms, including the owners’ suite, are to the left, along with a two-section, general use bathroom. The owners’ suite, of course, has its own private bathroom, complete with a dual vanity, deep soaking tub, towel hutch and large shower. The suite also boasts a roomy walk-in closet.
Heading down the hallway to the right brings you to the Littlefield’s kitchen and a pass-through utility room that links with the two-car garage. At the rear of the garage is an exceptionally deep storage/workshop area, and stairs to the upper level. A recreation room, bathroom, and walk-in storage closet are upstairs, over the garage.
