This family wanted to build a new home for themselves and wanted to create a spacious feel on a lot that was slightly bigger than a standard size lot. They also wanted to keep costs in mind and wanted to keep the square footage to between 4,250 s.f. and 4,400 s.f.
We developed a plan based the exterior on a Tuscan style which used some subtle detailing to give the house the outwardly appearance of a Tuscan residence without forcing cliches. Stone facade, tile roofing, arched entry way with a groin vaulted ceiling were some
of the details that gave the home it's character.
The interior of the home use a large open curved stair as a starting point to give a grand, open feeling to the home without sacrificing privacy to the living spaces.
An archway through the stair structure to the main living space of the home was created. A large kitchen with and plenty of counter space that was open to the family room and breakfast area.
All of these rooms fed off of the views to the back yard which helped increase the perceived size utilizing the borrowed views from the exterior.
The garage was connected to the home with a mudroom that had an area for lockers and storage.
The second floor consisted of the private spaces with including: three secondary bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bath connecting them and one had a private bath with that bath connecting to a game room. The Master suite is large and bright.
The master bath was designed with an oversized shower free standing tub and separate vanities gave the owners a spa-type feel . The laundry room was also on the second level.
