At first glance Jessamine Park appears spacious and sprawling. The porch, dormers, and classic clapboard-and-brick exterior create the beauty of a grand house, but smart, compact design utilizes great-looking details and maintains an open feeling in less than 1,700 square feet. The two-story foyer immediately creates openness; every public room is convenient and seen from here. The living room is to the right, the dining room to the left, and the comfortable family room directly ahead. The kitchen and breakfast room connect with the family room, providing a central multipurpose space. All the bedrooms are upstairs. The master has its own bath and walk-in closet, while the two secondary bedrooms share a bath. As another option for the second floor, designers Frank Betz Associates, Inc., of Smyrna, Georgia, included a bonus room. Ideal as a playroom or home office, this room would be accessed through a redesigned hallway.
