Contemporary but still classic design

(ran HS edition)

High arched windows add excitement to the facade as well as to the interior spaces of this classic but contemporary house. Tall gable roof lines with distinctive eave cutbacks open up the vaulted living spaces. Adding eye appeal are the tall brick chimney and the horizontal siding with wide corner-trim boards and brick panel accents.

The vaulted foyer leads to a sunken living room with an open-beam ceiling and fireplace. One step up is a vaulted dining room, which has a sliding door into the atrium on one end and arched windows on the other.

A kitchen with U-shaped island has a corner bay window overlooking the back garden. An adjoining breakfast nook flows into a vaulted family room, with an angled hearth for a woodstove and a door out to the parly covered patio.

In the bedroom wing, the master bedroom also has a door to the patio, a walk-in wardrobe, a bathroom and dressing area with skylights and a sunken tub set in the corner.

Bedrooms two and three both have window seats and share the hall bathroom. A utility/storage room on the way to the three-car garage completes the 2,003-square-foot house. A daylight basement version, with stairs replacing part of the utility room, doubles the square footage.

For building cost information, please contact a local building contractor. All plans are carefully designed and detailed to comply with the Uniform Building Code.
