Atrium, floor plan open up house

(ran HL HS editions)

Wood-clad pillars support a roof extension that shelters the entry to this multilevel, open-floor-plan house. A series of hip roof lines is accented by horizontal siding and wide trim boards. A vaulted ceiling covers the entry and family living and entertaining areas. An atrium and a wood deck that spans the back of the house open the house to the outdoors.

From the Y-shaped entry, hallways branch off to the living and bedroom arm of the house. Past the exposed-beam study with double is a great room. A wood stove on an inset stone hearth warms the living area. Sliding glass doors open into the atrium, and French doors lead out to the deck. A tray ceiling accents the dining area, which has a built-in buffet topped by windows in the atrium wall. The U-shaped kitchen has counter and storage space.

Down the hall from the entry are two bedrooms, one with a window seat, and a hall bathroom. A utility room and a partial bath line the hall to the garage, completing the 1,861-square-foot main floor.

An open stairway leads from the front entry hall to the 556-square-foot upper level master suite. The master suite has a window seat, walk-in wardrobe, dressing area and a bathroom with walk-in shower.

In the daylight basement version, stairs replace the storage area under the hall stairway.
