The layout of The Grange is designed in a classic style. This style can create a structure for the different spaces inside the house. It also organizes the house into a connecting bar and two wings. This kind of layout is not only decorating the home but also provide the owner with additional spaces through its structure.

The living areas are informal in order to be used as a family’s daily room based on their needs. These areas are also combined with a more formal entertaining living room and a central dining room. This combination is placed in the middle of the house, offering a large area for the family to gather.

The beautiful dining room opens through the glass doors which are tall onto the house patio. This patio is nestled between two wings of the house and also in the middle of the fire pit. Both the dining room and patio fluidly connected to each other, allowing the communal indoor and outdoor interacting freely.

There is a banistered bridge that can connect the kid’s bedroom to the master suite. With a loft as an addition of the house, the family of this house can have a playful twist with a traditional layout. The warm colors outside the house come from the material palette of wide-plank grey floors and white wood paneling that used in both interior and exterior of the house, creating a comfortable home for the family.
