This home is an expanded version of The Granby Colonial in our standard plan portfolio. The front elevation of this spacious house is symmetrical and formal with exterior trim detailing that is consistent with late-18th century building style. By adding a gathering room connector, we have created a flowing, open floor plan for a large or growing family. This design broadens and diversifies our portfolio with a popular new two story.

The interior of this home works well for families with an informal lifestyle and the open layout helps to foster group interaction. With the exception of the formal dining room, the main level is left mostly open from space to space. A large living room with a fireplace resides across the right side of the first floor. The expansive kitchen and breakfast area with second fireplace flow into the gathering room with cathedral ceiling and third fireplace.

Two covered porches off either side of the connector offer shelter and human scale the structure. Light streams into this space through several windows and glass doors, further connecting the home to its natural surroundings. Continuing through the ell toward the three bay carriage shed is a full bathroom and a mudroom with laundry area and storage closets. This hallway also contains a heated access to the stairway leading to optional space above the garage to round out this level.

The second floor of this house contains a gracious master bedroom suite with separate walk-in closet and a large master bath with whirlpool. Two other bedrooms share a full bathroom and a staircase continues up to the third level. Optional living space for future expansion can be found on the third floor of the main house and the second floor above the carriage shed. The third floor is suitable for two comfortable bedrooms and an additional bathroom. On the second floor of the carriage shed is a spacious room well suited for an office, exercise room or comfortable in-laws apartment.
