Braemar Carriage Home Spotlight: The Parkdale Model

Braemar Carriage Home Spotlight:  The Parkdale Model

One of the most popular style of homes in Bristow’s community of Braemar are Carriage homes.   These smaller, single family homes with detached garages are a great alternative for many buyers who may also be looking at average to larger sized townhouses.  Not all Braemar Carriage homes were built with detached garages.  Some original owners opted to not have the garage and instead have an asphalt parking area.  No matter whether it’s a detached garage, or parking area, it is in the rear of the Carriage.

The Parkdale is the largest of the Carriage homes in Braemar.  It is one of two styles of Carriage homes that boasts four bedrooms on the upper level.  The other is the Oakdale.  The remaining, smaller Carriage homes (from largest to smallest) are the Norwood and Maplewood and have only three bedrooms on the upper level.

The main level of the Parkdale boasts a spacious kitchen with island and morning room that is open to the large family room.  A nice extra only found in the Parkdale is the butler’s pantry that transitions you from the kitchen to the formal dining room. You will also find the laundry room opposite the butler’s pantry. And in true colonial fashion, the formal living room is opposite the formal dining room. 

The bedroom level gives another special extra only found in the Parkdale:  a sitting room in the master suite.  Some owners may not have chosen to frame the sitting area with the formal pillars, so the master bedroom may simply appear much larger.

The basement, as with all the Carriage homes, may be finished to include an additional third bathroom, den and a recreation space.

The floor plan for each level of the Parkdale is at the end of this post.
