In case you’re not caught up on home building terminology, Craftsman-style homes are characterized by covered front porches, tapered columns, natural earth tones, partially paned windows, thick trim, exposed beams or rafters, and generally display an artisanal approach to the decor. In short, *chef’s kiss*, stunning.
This home is the blank canvas of our dreams, and no, we’re not exaggerating. The detailing of the main floor is perfect, from the fireplace to the flooring, to the beautiful and bright kitchen. We’d say it’s to die for, but it’s no longer 2004. The soaker tub is the cherry on top, but what really ties the property together is the Craftsman-style build of the home.
Looking at this home there is one word that comes to mind, and that is space. Seriously. So much room for activities. The 9-foot ceilings, large windows, and open concept welcome a ton of natural light into the home, making those golden hour selfies possible in every corner of the house. Another bonus? The colour palette of the main floor and kitchen make us feel like we’re living in a Restoration Hardware catalogue. Only a childhood dream of ours.
With exterior colours that reflect nature paired with layered eaves and stone detailing, this home is the epitome of Craftsman style. Inside you’ll find a roomy family home with a very nicely finished basement, perfect for an entertainment or games room. Plus, the large green space in the back will provide ample opportunity for you to make your backyard dreams come true.
We’re suckers for open concepts and bright spaces. Is that clear yet?! We’re living for the juxtaposition of a Craftsman-style exterior and a modern and elegant interior. Consistency is key, and we’re seeing it throughout this home with attention to detail.
Oh yeah, we’ve got another home filled with beaming light, perfect for that golden hour glow. There’s a lot to love about this Walker Lakes home, but our top picks are the speakers installed throughout the house, the granite kitchen countertops, and the finished basement rec room wired with surround sound, making it perfect for some serious Netflix binges.
Well friends, thanks for coming along for the ride!
