A charming understated structure, the craftsman home maintains beautiful wood features and fine attention to detail throughout. Each part of the house is thoughtfully blueprinted with intentional and custom design including built-in shelves, window seats, reading nooks, an array of mixed metals, a large cozy fireplace, and hand-carved accents. The exterior generally consists of a low-pitched roof, low-hanging eaves, wide-beamed columns, and a large front porch.
