The Dream Home was built for year round living so there is plenty of room to store the essentials needed for a family. Each of the bedrooms have oversized walk-in closets for year round wardrobes, says lead architect, Patrick Ahearn.

Most homebuyers today, expect walk-in closets in new construction or renovated properties and this house doesn't disappoint. For example, in the master bedroom, a large closet for clothes and accessories a joins a separate dressing room to keep the main sleeping area free of clutter.

If the owners decide to rent out the house to tenants, Ahearn explains, one of the closets can be locked to store their personal property while the other can remain free for the tenants use. All of the closets are outfitted with custom closet systems to maximize the space and keep clothes, shoes and accessories neat and organized.

The bathrooms all have cabinetry to hold bathing and grooming essentials and separate linen closets to hold sheets and towels for each of the en suites. A large laundry room boasts not only the side-by-side front loading washer and dryer but includes a countertop and cabinets overhead for storing detergents and cleaning supplies.

In the kitchen, the perimeter walls are lined with closed cabinets and drawers for cooking and dining needs. The kitchen island was built over more cabinets and a nearby countertop near the door leading to the back patio, houses even more storage space for grilling supplies and outdoor utensils.

In the great room, built-in shelves for books and collectibles, flank the gas fireplace and more built-in shelves flank the front door inside next to a pair of window seats.

In the garage, a separate room was built to house the trash and recycling bins. "This room could also serve as a room for bulk storage for beach gear," says Ahearn. The one-car garage was designed to be big enough to hold bikes with racks mounted on the back wall, kayaks to use in the warmer months, and tools for gardening or home repairs.

To keep costs down, the house sits on a crawl space rather than a full-basement except for the area under the kitchen and master bedroom. Here, a stand-up basement with an outside bulkhead entrance allows access to the HVAC systems, saving even more space inside the main house.
