Braemar Carriage Home Spotlight: The Oakdale Model
Carriage homes in Braemar are always in demand by Bristow buyers. They offer a great value for the money. The space of an average to large townhouse with the yard and separation of a single family home. Some Braemar Carriage homes opted for the two car garage, always detached and situated behind the home, while some original owners opted not to have the garage, but rather an asphalt parking area.
The Oakdale is the smaller of two four bedroom models offered by Brookfield Homes. Repeated many times throughout Braemar you can see the covered front porch elevations, though there were two elevations with a more flat and basic front.
The main level of the Oakdale is very similar to the Norwood, but with a bit more elbow room. The kitchen, with island, is open to the family room. Formal living and dining rooms flank the front foyer. While the Norwood offers larger formal rooms in front, the Oakdale is more suited to how most people live, with the kitchen and family room getting the majority of the main level space.
The obvious difference between an Oakdale and Norwood comes when you hit the bedroom level. The Norwood’s design limits it to three bedrooms and two bathroom on the second level. In the Oakdale, you’ll find four bedroom and two bathrooms. The Master Suite may, or may not, include the optional garden tub which was not an option in the Norwood or Maplewood models.
The basement may be finished to include a recreation area, den/additional bedroom and full bathroom.
The floor plan for each level of the Oakdale is at the end of this post.
