Open spaces with lots of privacy

Private outdoor areas and indoor spaces compete for attention in this 3,052-square-foot home. Gable rooflines, twin dormers, diagonal and horizontal board siding and brick accents enhance the contemporary exterior. Double gate doors lead into a brick-walled courtyard and along a covered walkway to the front door.

The vaulted-ceiling entry has a railing overlooking the sunken living room that has a beamed ceiling, fireplace and windows looking into the front courtyard. The entry hall leads past the formal dining room and to the island kitchen, sun room and vaulted family room with a woodstove. Doors open off the sun room to a patio.

The other half of the 1,914-square-foot main floor is devoted to the master bedroom suite, with a sunken tub, separate shower, walk-in wardrobe and doors opening to a screened deck and hot tub.

A curving staircase leads from the entry to the 1,138-square-foot upper floor and a skylighted hallway, with railing overlooking the family room and entry. Two bedrooms share the hall bathroom, with dormer window. Two other dormers lighten the vaulted-ceiling recreation room. The plan is also available with a daylight basement.

For building cost information contact local contractors. All plans are carefully designed and detailed to comply with the U.B.C. Building Codes. More stringent code requirements should be taken care of locally.
