     Craftsman-style windows and a trio of gables give the compact Pineville an inviting front facade. Its covered porch makes an ideal location for an old-fashioned porch swing.30937Cart

     Inside and out, the entire right side of the cottage is devoted to the enjoyment of food-related activities, guaranteed to be popular in any family.

     Its large sunny nook is up front, just to the right of the entry. Light washes in through windows on two sides. A pocket door opens into the step-saving kitchen, where appliances, cabinets and counters wrap around four sides.

     This room, in turn, is open to the dining area at the rear, across a long peninsular counter rimmed by a raised eating bar. Plenty of natural light brightens the dining area as well. It has a wide side window plus sliding glass doors at the back that lead out onto yet another possible eating venue. The partially covered patio could be outfitted for warm-weather dining.

     Entering the home and walking straight ahead brings you to a bright and expansive great room, where a wide window spans much of the rear wall. This room is totally open to the dining room on the right.30937Cart

     Private spaces fill out the left side of the home. These include three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a utility room that links with the two-car garage. A storage closet and a coat closet line the hallway into this area. If the front bedroom/study is used as a home office, the addition of an exterior door could allow direct access from the porch.

     In the Pineville, the owners’ suite is at the rear. Amenities include a roomy walk-in closet and a two-section bathroom. A pocket door separates the dual vanity from the toilet and shower.
