I try to not repeat pictures on my blog, but the moment I saw this kitchen, which I shared on my “60 Inspiring Kitchen Design Ideas‘ post, I knew I had to find the rest of the house to share with you. I am glad I did it!

Kitchen & Bar
The kitchen features a bar area that carries a wine cooler, separate sink, prep area and an island and stools.
According to the designer, “the benefit of the kitchen is that it split into two areas. It is not huge, but it’s very functional,” says Lockhart.
The bar is really a separate serving space that allows you to entertain with drinks – or snacks for the kids. It divides up the function based on how people operate today.
Flooring is an exceptionally hard-wearing, off-white porcelain tile flooring.

I am loving the flooring!
Durable hand-scraped 7-inch engineered oak hardwood floors lead to an elegant staircase that opens up to the right, purposefully leaving the view from the front hall uninterrupted to the back of the home.
A plush, patterned runner adds comfort under foot.
New to luxury homes these days is the quiet room reserved for laptop and tablet use, or if you’re like me, a good paper book.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is set back from the hallway by an extended entryway. The 360-square-foot space is made even more expansive by his and hers walk-in closets, bay windows surrounding a vignette of additional seating and a vaulted tray ceiling that defines the parameters of the space, giving it a distinct, unique feel.

Floor Plan – 1st Floor
I often get readers asking me about the floor plans of the houses I post. Unfortunately that’s rarely accessible, but since I found this one, I thought you might like seeing it. This gives you an idea of where the rooms are located. And, perhaps, this might be handy for you if you’re planning on building your dream home.
I am loving this floor plan. The second floor would be ideal for my family.
Compare the size of “His” and “Hers” closets. This home keeps getting better…
