For those wanting convenience and the true country French look, Le Chalet is a surprisingly functional 2,504 square feet given its "cottagy" curb appeal. Typical French construction of limestone with wooden accents in the form of brackets, trusses, rafter extensions and board and batten shutters give it a definite French appeal. Window boxes filled with flowers, copper roof vents and terracotta chimney pots add to the authentic look of this updated, country house.
A cozy entryway leads to a small vestibule just off the study with fireplace and high, beamed ceiling. A large family room with fireplace, vaulted and beamed ceiling lies just beyond. French doors lead to a small covered patio and garden. By opening the space to the kitchen and dining area, we have created a very functional and surprisingly airy space. A breezeway which could double as a useful covered terrace off the dining area connects the house to a two car garage.
Three bedrooms and convenient laundry room lie at the other end of the house off a central hall. Two bedrooms share a "Jack and Jill" bath and allow for plenty of closet space. The master bedroom has a sizable bath with double sink, tub and shower. A private toilet room with its own window are at one end adjacent to the large walk-in closet.
