MEN 5153

From award-winning designer Michael E. Nelson comes a stunning addition to our Craftsman Bungalow House Collection. Brick Gables displays a beautiful mixture of both stone and brick siding, giving depth and visual interest to the home. This is complimented by the wooden shutters, arched windows and front door, and the finials on the rooftop points. All these beautiful elements give this home wonderful curb appeal!

Open Floor Living

Stepping inside Brick Gables, you will find yourself in the large foyer, open to a formal dining room. Straight through here takes you into the Great Room, where you can enjoy a cozy fire in the gas fireplace while resting under the elegance of the vaulted ceiling. The great room provides access to the outdoor living/grilling porch through two French doors, also allowing plenty of natural light to flow into the house.

The open floor plan allows the great room, kitchen, and breakfast nook to flow together for the perfect entertaining space. As this space is unencumbered by dividing walls, conversations with your guests can flow from one room to the next, uninterrupted.

This Kitchen displays a large island with raised bar seating, adding plenty of counter space, as well as a spot to sit and enjoy a drink or hors d’oeuvres with the cook while they prepare dinner in their favorite spot in the house. Any cook (or mom) in the family is also sure to appreciate the walk-in pantry for added storage.

Behind the kitchen, on the right side of Brick Gables, you’ll find the laundry room, kids' nook (mudroom) by the entrance to the garages, and a convenient half bath perfect for visitors.

Split Bedroom Floor Plan

Heading down this hall toward the rear of Brick Gables, you will find a Master Suite made for luxury! The vaulted ceiling paired with the large arched window add elegance to the master bedroom, while the Master Bath displays luxuries of a glass shower, free-standing tub, double sink vanity, and a large walk-in closet.

The opposite side of Brick Gables holds the other two bedrooms, allowing a separation from the master suite to keep the noise of kids and/or guests to the other side of the home. This way, you can fully unwind from the day with no interruptions. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located at the rear and front, respectively, and share a Jack and Jill bath in between. Each of these rooms has its own private sink, linen closet, and walk-in closet, while they share the shower/tub unit, toilet, and an additional linen closet in the connecting room between.

A bonus room above the 2-car, side load garage is available to finish out if you are needing an additional space. It is complete with a full bath and is 539 square feet.

Safe Room

If you live in an area where tornados are prominent, then you have most likely thought at one point or another about the importance of having a safe room, otherwise know, as a storm shelter. When those sirens go off (as you know they will at some point), wouldn’t you like to know that you have an easily accessible place right in your own home that can keep you out of harms way? Within the garage of Brick Gables, a safe room is built with concrete walls and a fortified door to provide shelter to you and your family in case of an emergency.

Great Entertaining Features

If you love to host holidays, parties, or just casual get togethers with friends and family, this home has plenty of features that lend perfectly to this. The open floor plan, outdoor living area, and large kitchen island with barstool seating all lend to the ultimate entertaining atmosphere. Even the addition of the half bath in the hall is gauged at helping those who love to host gatherings in their home, providing a specific bathroom just for guests. (And how nice is it that they won’t be using the kids' bathroom??)
