Time to change some of those subconscious thought patterns
Sometimes one of the first statistics we look at when narrowing the list of homes we want to see is the square footage. This habit is troublesome for us for at least 2 reasons: many times this figure is inaccurate; and even more importantly, the room, window and door placements in a home can make many floor plans work better than others. During the recent (yes, it was just a few years ago) housing bubble, McMansions were replacing manageable sized homes and our subconscious was brainwashed into the bigger is better concept leaving us with a fear of "too smallness".
20 Midpark Lane in Ladue MO has approximately 1900 s.f. of living area and is so ideal for the busy lifestyles of today's on-the-go society. The community space on the main level has the "circle flow" - no dead ends, a floor plan that works. The current owner converted the third bedroom of this home into a dining room and opened it up to the kitchen with a door. The kitchen also opens to the backyard and a brick patio for outdoor living space.
The kitchen was updated in keeping with the contemporary aura of this mid century brick ranch. It has custom metal cabinets and granite countertops. The appliances are stainless steel and the floor is slate. The living room was designed in 1951 as a living room/dining room combination. It is a spacious and light filled room with a wall of windows (thermal) and a fireplace characteristic of the fifties.
To create an even more comfortable lifestyle, the owners finished the lower level. The large media/recreation room works well for exercise equipment, a table and a media space for "settling in" at the end of a long day. There is a bathroom in this lower level and a wet bar, a bedroom/den, along with an area for the washer/dryer and storage. It is also a walkout.
This home has a sophisticated yet casual energy and a lot of versatile space. It is easy to maintain leaving the owners with play time instead of weekends filled with home projects. The space is effective and produces a comfortable atmosphere and floor plan for living and entertaining. This home gives us an opportunity to use our creativity to make smallness a very desirable attribute in a home.
