Builder, More than 2,500 square feet
This English Arts and Crafts-style home boasts spacious 4-foot-wide hallways and open, welcoming rooms. Constructed to blend in with the 1920s homes that surround it, the residence contains one remnant of the lot's original house: bricks that frame a large, wood-burning fireplace in the new family room.
With 7,000 feet of living space, the home has 3-foot-wide (or wider) doorways throughout, and residents can choose from two large master suites. The suite on the main level includes a master bathroom perfectly suited for residents of all abilities: It features a waterproof floor, a sink with a roll-under space, roll-in shower, and double sinks with easy-to-move lever handles. The master suite on the second level features a bathroom with a large soaking bathtub and a stand-up shower.
Like the two master suites, the home's remaining three bedrooms all feature walk-in closets and adjoining bathrooms. The home also has three additional powder rooms.
Residents may choose to climb the wide, oak-paneled staircase or to use the built-in residential elevator to move among the basement to the main floor, second level, and attic. As they move through the property, the owners will find Energy Star-rated appliances and outdoor space with low-maintenance, drought-resistant landscaping for laid-back enjoyment.
