Breakfast Nook

This Cape Cod inspired custom home includes 5,500 square feet of large open living space, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, working spaces for the adults and kids, a lower level guest suite, ample storage space, and unique custom craftsmanship and design elements characteristically fashioned into all Schrader homes. Detailed finishes including unique granite countertops, natural stone, cape code inspired tiles & 7 inch trim boards, splashes of color, and a mixture of Knotty Alder & Soft Maple cabinetry adorn this comfortable, family friendly home.

Some of the design elements in this home include a master suite with gas fireplace, master bath, large walk in closet, and balcony overlooking the pool. In addition, the upper level of the home features a secret passageway between kid’s bedrooms, upstairs washer & dryer, built in cabinetry, and a 700+ square foot bonus room above the garage.

Main level features include a large open kitchen with granite countertops with honed finishes, dining room with wainscoted walls, Butler's pantry, a “dog room” complete w/dog wash station, home office, and kids study room.

The large lower level includes a Mother-in-law suite with private bath, kitchen/wet bar, 400 Square foot masterfully finished home theatre with old time charm & built in couch, and a lower level garage exiting to the back yard with ample space for pool supplies and yard equipment.

This MN Greenpath Certified home includes a geothermal heating & cooling system, spray foam insulation, and in-floor radiant heat, all incorporated to significantly reduce utility costs. Additionally, reclaimed wood from trees removed from the lot, were used to produce the maple flooring throughout the home and to build the cherry breakfast nook table.

How are the back cushions attached? What is the batting? - I like the back of this as it is not as stuffed and does not take up as much room?

It is 46" in diameter. We handcrafted this table from a cherry tree in their yard that needed to come down.

Use back lite mirrors and up light crown molding. Then add a small chandlier that will reflect the mood your trying to capture.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Breakfast Nooks, Sunny Side Up
Having a breakfast nook that's as snug and lovely as this one can be worth the expense of adding a micro addition.
Becky Harris added this to 19 Ways to Create a Cozy Breakfast Nook
Tuck the booth into a bay. Windows on three sides create a light-filled space that will help your body wake up in the morning. If you need to add on to gain eat-in space in your kitchen, try a bay window for a cost-effective microaddition.
