When designing a home, the exterior is just as important as the interior. An inviting front porch greets visitors of the Chatham Township Residence; however, it is not the only exterior space. On the right side of the home is a spacious stone patio, and to the left, the owners have access to a private porch over the three-car garage. The home is positioned in a way that allows for front and back yard space to enjoy, as well.

The main vestibule for the home awaits just past the front door. From this area, the upstairs and downstairs staircases are accessible, as is access to a bedroom, the dining room and a hallway leading to the home’s family room. Having an open family room rather than a separate living room and kitchen allows for seamless entertaining and quick access to the patio’s French doors, which are located in the living portion of the room. The careful design of the kitchen places all of the cabinets on the outer-facing walls, which maximizes storage without impeding the flow of natural light through the space.

Moving to the second story of the home, the placement of the staircase allows for a generous vestibule up here, as well. The separation between the upstairs and downstairs bedrooms give the residents ample privacy, and best of all, the wainscotting, prominent white trim and crown molding is continued up the stairs, so style is not compromised.

Finished and ready for use, the basement offers a spacious recreation room, a storage room and quick access to the home’s under-grade three-car garage. The use of standard-height ceilings, recessed lighting and windows against the back wall remove the basement stigma from the level and make it an inviting part of the home.

Providing upstairs and downstairs bedroom options, flexible living areas and ample storage, the Chatham Township Residence offers it all in one well-designed package. Care was taken to make the exterior just as appealing as the interior, and to ensure the home stands out as a unique architectural piece while blending in with the 2-story style of the neighborhood. Mission accomplished.
