Rhapsody comfortable, but elegant

Comfort with elegance; spaciousness with many extra features describes the ranch style of the Rhapsody (338-050). The exterior is brick with a large wrap-around-covered porch. Creative natural light is provided by skylights and light tubes. Disguising the garage is a brick planter under a row of large windows. There are two doors off the entry porch. One goes to the garage with a large shop and a separate storage area. The other opens into a vaulted family room with many windows. An entertainment center livens up the family room, while on the opposite side, a fireplace graces the dining area. Large overhead fans provide air circulation while complimenting the scale of the room.

The kitchen area is very accessible with a nook that opens to the covered deck. There is an island cooktop with a raised eating bar and a large walk-in pantry for extra food storage on the adjacent corner. A pocket door opens into the hall. A raised dishwasher has been added for ease of loading. Convenient to the entry is the office/library, lined with shelves and a large corner computer desk. French doors provide a grandiose entrance. Adjacent to the office is a half bath with the utility area around the corner.

Two bedrooms located in the rear of the home have large walk-in closets and personal linen closets. The larger of the two could be a guest room, with a private covered deck through sliding doors. Both bedrooms share a tub/shower combination with private half bath.

On the opposite side of the home is the unique master suite with a sunroom or living room adjacent. The master suite opens onto the covered porch area separately through a door on the side and French doors in the rear. Numerous windows and skylights give the room extra sunlight. Adding to the uniqueness of the master suite, there is an oversized walk-in closet with a second water heater. The bath has dual sinks, an oversized tub, shower and a pocket door entrance to the sunroom/living room.

A vaulted formal living room would be wonderful with four skylights and a half moon window overhead to brighten the area and provide extra light. However, equally ideal would be to install a spa and use this room as a sunroom. The room is shut off from the home with the elegance of the French doors.
