Although this design has an open floor plan layout it still allows one to sense the separation between the different living areas. This separation is accomplished by the placement of the fireplace. Notice how effectively it defines the dining area. We also wanted to design a house where the “shell” was economical to build i.e. a rectangular form yet would still boast of some upscale features. The stone faced fireplace vaulted ceilings and wood floors satisfy this requirement quite nicely. These features in themselves are not expensive but together they add tremendously to the overall architectural satisfaction (see interior rendering). We have found that nothing beats a front porch for welcoming guest relaxing or doubling as an outside playroom and this house boasts a generous one. The porch even wraps the corner which gives the front of the house more depth and visual interest. The basement also doubles as a 2-car garage and storage area.
Unusual angles add a unique flair to this adaptable charmer. The central foyer features an open railing that sets off the half-stairway to the private master suite. To the right you'll find a well-appointed kitchen that adjoins a cheerful six-sided breakfast room with access to the wrap-around deck. The rear-facing dining room is great for formal suppers. And its handy location next to the skylit living room with built-in wetbar will simplify your entertaining duties. Two more bedrooms tucked down a hall off the living room share a full bath with double vanities.
