The recessed porch adds a unique detail to this classic Cape composition.
Inside, a two-story center hall opens on the left and right to formal
living and dining rooms. To the rear, the kitchen, breakfast nook, and
family room form an open, flowing space that extends the width of the
house. A fireplace sits against the far wall of the family room, and
French doors open onto a rear deck.
The attached mudroom wing with a laundry area and large closet offers
a convenient rear entrance into the kitchen.
A main staircase with an open balustrade leads up to the second-floor
hall which overlooks the entrance below. At one side of the house, the
master bedroom features a large walk-in closet and a master bath with
an oversize tub, dual sinks, a glass shower, and a dormer window overlooking
the front lawn. On the other side, the hall leads past a bathroom to
two bedrooms – each with its own large closet – and a final
bedroom with a private bath above the garage.
The classic 1-1/2 story Cape form conveys a timeless charm, and the
Kingston offers the convenience of a second mudroom entrance. Plans
for this house have been carefully drawn and include authentic details.

shingles, or brick. Choose from several front porch and dormer options
to create your own original design.
