When you hear the word compromise, it often means being okay with less than you’d hoped for. Luckily there’s a home model where compromise is not part of the plan. It’s called the Philmont.
The Philmont offers looks and smart design in equal measure. You get a choice of beautiful facades on the outside, and grand, light-filled spaces on the inside. But you’ll also enjoy its convenient, flexible floorplan and generous room for storage. No trade-offs here!
The foyer is open and airy, and can be whatever you imagine – playroom, living room, formal dining room. You could make it a glass-doored library for some old-world charm. Or use the secluded study, which can also be a first-floor bedroom. The kitchen has a huge island and walk-in pantry, and flows into the dining area and family room. A family entry keeps dirty shoes and wet clothes from flowing into your home.
Upstairs, the loft makes for a great family hang-out or another bedroom. The owner’s bedroom is your comfortable getaway. Two large walk-in closets help avoid “space battles,” and the luxurious bathroom you can customize however you need. Many areas offer a lower level you can finish with a wet bar, full bath and basement bedroom. In the Philmont, you don't have to sacrifice style for sensibility.
