It shows in the Baywest Homes quince. Measuring 2,703 square feet, this top-of-the-line front-wheel-drive model is featured as a show home in the lakeside community of Mahogany.

The house has four bedrooms with a central bonus room that creates a winged effect, providing privacy between parent and child sleeping spaces.

The children’s rooms are within inches of the same size, which limits the risk of arguments when deciding who gets which space.

Two of these bedrooms are next to each other and the other is opposite a full bathroom. Her vanity has two sinks, allowing more than one child to brush their teeth and comb their hair at the same time.

A laundry room is across from the bonus room, equidistant from the parent and child bedrooms. This creates a short walk for all family members when carrying a basket of clean or dirty clothes.

The laundry room has a front loading washer and dryer, sink and cabinets, convenient for storing detergent, bleach and fabric softener.

In this bonus room, there is a place for everyone. At 14ft 9in and 10ft 10in, he is generously sized. The elegant tray-style ceiling enhances the visual interest of the space.

Upon entering the master bedroom, the first thing one sees is access to a large, high-end bathroom. A striking freestanding tub sits below a window and is flanked by walls with a glass-enclosed shower and a vanity with two sinks, respectively.

The bathroom is connected to a dressing room, offering the convenience of a fluid space in which to start the day.

Workspaces are another valuable consideration for parents and children in the family.

A few steps from the second level is a technical area that can accommodate at least three children. We can imagine them using it for homework or crafts.

On the main level, a 10-foot-three by nine-foot office enclosed by a barn door provides anyone who needs to work from home a place to hide.

The star of the main floor is a large L-shaped cooking area. Its island has a sink, generous surface area and room for at least three people to sit at the extended dining bar.

It’s ideal for young children to relax and chat with their parents while they put the finishing touches on dinner.

There’s a thoughtful distribution of its stainless steel appliances, allowing one to be in the wall oven and the other in the fridge, without bumping elbows.

Combining a high volume of cabinets and drawers with a well-proportioned walk-in pantry, the kitchen has ample storage space. This reduces the risk of congestion.

The kitchen connects to the great room and dining room, which line up side-by-side along the rear-facing wall, thanks to an open-concept design. Both rooms receive plenty of natural light.

The foyer combines space and privacy. Its square footage allows multiple people to fit into the home at the same time without being cramped. At the same time, its design limits views beyond the immediate space.
