With winter decidedly upon us, and favorable snow conditions, skiing season is in full swing throughout the country. If you take skiing trips to a certain area often, you have probably thought about building a home for your frequent weekend (or longer!) getaways. If so, the Littleton floor plan might just be the perfect mountain getaway home for you. The Littleton has the space and practicality for use as a primary home as well, so let’s step inside and explore this great Real Log plan.
From the outside, the Littleton blends practicality and tradition, with full-height log walls on the first floor and an A-frame roof defining the upper-floor. A grand French door opens into the great room to either welcome guests or allow access onto the porch. To the right, a humbler door allows access to the home via its formal entryway, with a closet, powder room, and access to the garage and remainder of the home close at hand.
Proceeding left from the entryway brings us to the 400 square foot great room, which encompasses about a fifth of the first floor’s 2,014 square feet. The room has a grand, brick fireplace in an interior corner, providing heat and cozy charm to the room while leaving ample space for your choice of furnishings. Opposite from the fireplace is the stairwell to the upper floor, and the fireplace and stairwell serve as the division between the great room and the kitchen and dining space.
Moving past the fireplace, the 120 square foot dining room provides ample entertaining room for more formal parties, while the same-size kitchen to the right also offers bar seating for casual meals. There is also a cozy sunroom with access through the dining room, and a portal in the wall above the kitchen sink looks outside through the sunroom. If we proceed past the kitchen we enter the spacious laundry room, which features a helpful dumbwaiter to gather clothes from the upper floor.
Off of the dining room and behind the great room’s fireplace we can also access the spacious first-floor master bedroom. The plan allots a gigantic 720 square feet to this space, which has its own wood stove for cozy heat. The rear of the bedroom has a large walk-in closet, and a spacious bathroom with dual vanities and separate shower and large tub. From the master bedroom, a spiral staircase takes us to a private loft on the upper level.
Outside of the private loft, the 1,759 square foot upper level of the Littleton also provides two bedrooms and a common area near the top landing of the main stairwell. There is also a catwalk over the great room leading to a balcony in the front of the house, providing wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. The upper floor has a full guest bathroom, and the area over the garage is also available as a bonus room. Although marked as a game room on this floor plan, it could be configured for whatever your desires dictate, from additional bedrooms to a movie room.
