Cape Cod House Hunt: Truro home boasts stunning details, serene setting – News –

michael jhon

TRURO — For privacy and for getting away from it all, this woodsy Truro setting can’t be beat. Marsh Lane is a dead-end dirt road, and the driveway brings you down a small hill. It’s almost surprising to see such a contemporary home here — the entire lot is surrounded by woods that make up the Little Pamet conservation area. The yard is green and manicured all around, with the backyard boasting plenty of space and a built-in fire pit.

This home is practically brand-new, built in 2014, and no detail has been forgotten, right down to the octagon-shaped windows on each side of the front door. The floor plan is entirely open concept and feels much larger inside than it seems from the outside, with high ceilings, dark-stained hardwood floors and oversized windows giving that solid, contemporary feel that’s so sought after. It has a nice flow: living room

Modern Ideas for a Kitchen Nook Area | Home Guides

michael jhon

A kitchen nook often includes seating.

A kitchen nook is a small space in or near a kitchen separated from the appliances, cupboards, pantry and countertops. Many use kitchen nooks to create small, intimate breakfast areas or small lounge areas. Most kitchen nooks are designed to replace kitchen eating areas, but some are used in conjunction with larger kitchen dining spaces. There are many ways to create a kitchen nook so it provides a warm and friendly meeting spot.

Intimate Dining Area

Create a small, chummy eating area suitable for two to four people. Opt for a small glass or wooden round table because it’s more intimate than square or rectangular styles. Select individual, padded chairs so you and your family can comfortably scoot back from the table to read the newspaper, use electronic tablets or work on handheld crafts. Modern nook styles are often minimalistic, so choose simple wall art, nominal window treatments and basic

Bright, airy home combines modern and old for Lynchburg couple | Local News

Stairs to the second floor lead to a split landing that branches to the second floor master bedroom, a couple guest bedrooms and to a hallway that looks down over that sunny entryway.

The second floor master bedroom originally was a recreation room.

“That wasn’t quite traditional enough for us so we took this area here, took the recreation room, and made it our bedroom,” Gil said.

Windows in that room feature interior shutters and a balcony overlooks the yard.

Irene’s favorite spot in the house is that bedroom because she had a hand in its design, Gil said.

“She liked the closet for her shoe collection,” Gil said. “She had a 1,000 pairs of shoes. Yeah, she’s into fashion. … She had so many clothes and she started bringing them down and putting them in my little closet.”

The majority of the rooms are not a typical rectangular shape

Clinton Hill Neo-Federal Townhouse With Renovated Kitchen, Porch Asks $2.399 Million

michael jhon

This Clinton Hill neo-Federal bundles a practical early 20th century floor plan, original details, room for a home office and outdoor space all in a rather narrow package. At 445 Washington Avenue, it’s within the Clinton Hill Historic District.

It’s one of a row of four houses that are a bit more modern than some of the neighbors, having been built in 1922 on the site of a former 19th century wood frame manse. While initial plans called for replacing the house with a six-story apartment house, locals objected, according to a 1922 Brooklyn Daily Eagle article. It included a preliminary sketch of the “modern dwellings of Colonial design” that a new owner was planning to construct instead of the objectionable multi-family dwelling. The row of single-family homes ultimately built to the designs of architects Slee & Bryson are a bit more modest than the original sketch, but still include
