e call our small country house La Petite Auberge because it conveys the feeling of a small, French country inn on the outside with surprisingly large spaces and a floor plan designed for family life and gracious entertaining.
On entering, one passes the typically French stair tower and enters through French doors tucked into a cozy vestibule. On the ground floor, one is impressed with the formal living space with fireplace, access to covered porch to the rear and walled garden to the front. The dining room with its porch access permits easy terrace dining and views to the garden. Off the entry hall opposite the formal living areas, the generous family room with fireplace is open to the kitchen for easy living. These areas are connected directly to the porch and garage through a keeping room with plenty of storage and separate porch access on the side.The ground floor master suite is conveniently located off the family broom an accessed through its own vestibule for maximum privacy. The large bath and connecting, walk-in closet add another touch of elegance.
