Today we’re continuing our Homearama Virtual Tour with House #2 – The Olde English. (To see House #1 on the tour, click here). I admit, this one wasn’t my favorite, but there were some elements that I did like. Judge for yourself!
Here is the exterior – all of these homes had the “garage effect” in that the garages were definitely a prominent feature of the homes – I guess a necessary evil when you’re talking about smaller lot sizes, but I’m not a fan.
When you walked in, the home was bright with lots of natural light and beautiful hardwood floors.
The kitchen was open to the family room – wood cabinets and striking granite countertops.
Master Bathroom – loved the tub, and the tile really caught my eye.
Kind of a cross-hatch effect – the pictures really don’t do it justice.
I like how they added an interesting detail around the mirror with the glass tile.
A closer view…
I thought this was a neat feature – a walk-in/walk-through closet.
And on the other side, you find your laundry room! Smart – but definitely something that is probably better suited to an empty nester. I imagine my kids using that door as a back door to hide from each other.
A cute little mud room space – love the use of glass door knobs to hang coats or backpacks.
This was one of the extra bathrooms that was attached to a bedroom. I really liked this space, especially the tile that looks like wood at first glance. We asked what it was and the girl who was the “house greeter” told us it was wood. Um, I don’t think so – that’s definitely grout around those tiles (I checked).
But, it did have a bar. Not quite as flashy or interesting as some of the others, but it still scores some points with me.
Overall, there were some nice features to this home, but it didn’t feel as custom as some of the others on the tour. What do you think?
