What Houzz contributors are saying:
Living in your house for a full year can give you a fuller picture of your needs in every season. If you move into your home in midsummer, you may not be thinking about all of the mucky boots and jackets dripping snow that will fill your hall come winter. Likewise, if you move in during the cooler months, you may not realize there is a major mosquito problem in the area, making a screen porch much more appealing than the open design you were first considering. Simply by experiencing your house in all seasons, you can make smarter choices — and avoid costly mistakes.
Arts and Crafts interior trim, square-tapered columns and push-button switches are just a few of the classic Craftsman characteristics in this handsome house.
