The practical front entry and front facing garage give little hint of the fun and interesting architecture of this unique home. This house was clearly designed for a lot with great views to the rear and one side, and it features a unique kitchen placement with a sweeping 180–degree view!

The recessed covered entry opens to a foyer space that provides access to a coat closet, a full bath, and a 2–car garage on your left, and to a study and a stairway on your right. Straight ahead are the open living areas of the house.

The great room and dining room space features a curved outer wall filled with stacked picture windows. Centered among them is a large fireplace that visually anchors the wall. The ceiling in the great room rises to a dramatic 21' in the center. One door in the dining area opens to a large rear deck, while another opens to a screened porch.

Open to these living spaces, and set at a diagonal to them, is the kitchen. A large center island includes both a range and a prep sink on top, and a raised eating/serving counter with a curved shape that matches the curved loft area above it.

A door between the kitchen and the dining area opens to the master bedroom. Like all the non–vaulted rooms on the main level, the bedroom features a ceiling set at a lofty 10'. Sliding glass doors on one side open to the screened porch, and a sliding door on the other side opens for convenient access to the toilet and sinks in the master bath area. A hallway that's part of the master suite includes a row of closets, and access to both the bathroom and the laundry.

Upstairs, a curved loft area looks down to the living and dining areas, and out to the view through the upper windows. There are two additional bedrooms on this level that share both a full bath and a lovely balcony. The bathroom has a unique design that allows entry to the sink area from either side, and another door opens to a private bath and toilet. A pair of large skylights were installed above bedroom 3 to provide plenty of natural light.

The lower level of the home was designed as a potential walkout basement. The size and shape is about the same as the main level. Other than the mechanical room of the home, it is unfinished. Provisions have been made in the plans for the addition of another full bath, thus allowing for the possibility of a future guest bedroom or recreation area.
