The First Floor
There are two front entrances to The Jamesport’s first floor. The first is a formal entryway through the front door into a foyer, with a half bath immediately accessible off the hall. This bathroom affords both privacy and accessibility to family members and guests alike. The second is a casual entry point through the 2-car garage (23 by 20 feet) into the main living area, which houses the dining room (10 by 16 feet), the great room (16 by 18 feet), and the kitchen (14 by 10 feet). Off of the hall near the front entry are staircases leading to the second floor and basement. At the back of the house off of the kitchen and great room are double doors leading outside.
Customization Options: Delaware is beautiful in the late spring, summer, and early fall, so you’ll certainly want to consider adding the first-floor deck option (14 by 12 feet) to be accessed through the double doors at the back of the house. You can also add a sunroom off the back of the house (11 by 14 feet), right behind the kitchen. If you opt for both a deck and a sunroom, the sunroom will remain behind the kitchen and the deck will be accessed through double doors off of the great room. The deck will also be adjusted to 12 by 12 feet in size. *Option selections are subject to lot fit.
Open Floor Plan
The Jamesport has a classic open floor plan, offering all the benefits of a united central living area: uninterrupted lines of sight, visually expanding the feeling of spaciousness; an easy traffic flow; the ability to converse with family and friends in other areas of the house with facility; and shared light and outdoor visibility. The last of these is particularly essential in a community that prizes outdoor living and is consciously designed to preserve green space!

The two bedrooms near the back of the house measure 12 by 12 feet and 14 by 11 feet.
