This contemporary wooden construction has a commanding presence in a woodland setting. You would be forgiven for thinking the floor plan covered more than just 1,371 square feet (127.4 square meters).
The Bryson by Southland Log Homes has three bedrooms and two-and-one-half bathrooms spread over two stories (with an open loft). This well-appointed home has spacious rooms, yet maintains the cozy, rustic setting of a smaller cabin.
Inside the house, a spacious open-concept main room is well-lit by the soaring wall of glass. The high ceiling creates a fresh environment, while the attractive wood paneling, hardwood floors and stone fireplace earth the room with robust materials.
Log home lifestyle is about outdoors living. This cabin has a tremendous indoor/outdoor flow, with access to the wide porch from three sides of the great room.
The gorgeous sitting area is decorated with brown leather sofas and a vintage rug. They perfectly complement the heavy stone fireplace.
The dominance of the rustic stone fireplace anchors the room to its woodland setting. The large slate centerpiece is a clever use of stone as a decoration.
The ample-sized kitchen has attractive rustic cabinetry which fits in well with the grainy walls. The counter tops and stainless steel appliances give the room a sparkling brilliance.
The kitchen opens out to the main living area and the adjacent dining table.
This good-sized table comfortably seats six adults. Direct access to the spacious deck through multiple doors makes outdoor dining a constant reality.
The deck area is tastefully furnished with a rugged table and chair set. The attractive beams frame the setting beautifully.
The elevated deck area has a sweeping view over the woodlands to rolling hills in the background. Entire days swinging on this porch would suit me just fine.
Back inside the house, we explore the master bedroom, which is furnished with a tasteful antique-style bed. The spacious room comfortably fits large, rustic furnishings.
The master bedroom has direct access to the sweeping porch and the master bathroom.
The master's private deck area is a wonderful place for peaceful, romantic mornings.
The master bathroom ingeniously approaches his-and-hers double sink vanities in a smaller space.
The generous shower features a nice stone-tiled finish.
The second bedroom - also on the main floor - is finished with twin beds which are perfect for guests or the younger members of your family.
Upstairs, the open loft space benefits from the light and air of the main room. It's a peaceful retreat for a writer or a reader.
The third bedroom doesn't suffer from a lack of headroom. This spacious sleeping chamber makes an ideal suite for friends or family.
The loft has its own full bathroom, which is another fine example of the high-quality finishes we have seen throughout this home.
We're not finished yet. Let's explore the Bryson's garden.
Winding down from the deck, we find a terrace with a hot tub. Nice feature!
The hot tub has a view through the trees, over the valley, way off the to rolling hills in the distance. Sweet!
Further down the garden path, we discover the quiet space - a firepit and pond.
This is the ground-floor layout:
