This handsome home would look great in any setting. The great room is open to the kitchen and the dining area, and it features a ceiling that vaults to a dramatic 19' in the center. The entire rear wall of the house is lined with windows on the main floor, and gables above them also provide views to the rear for all three bedrooms. It can be a passive solar house if it faces north.

First Floor
The front porch leads to a space that can be either a large foyer or a small music room. It also functions as an airlock entry for cold winter days. As you enter the house, your eyes are drawn to the vaulted (rising from 9' at the exterior wall to 19') great room, and to the views provided all along the rear of the house. A centrally located fireplace in the great room also faces the dining area and the kitchen. The dining area is quite large, and a French door leads from it to a deck that runs nearly the length of the house. The kitchen is separated from the dining area by a breakfast bar. It shares the same view to the rear, has a window box below the windows, and it includes an island for extra counter space, as well as a pantry.

The master bedroom has double French doors leading to a deck with an optional hot tub, and to a covered porch. It includes a sitting area and a large walk–in closet. The master bath has both a tub and a double shower, two sinks, and a private toilet. On the other side of the house, near the kitchen, there's a laundry room with a half bath, and a computer/mail nook.

Second Floor
There are two uniquely shaped bedrooms upstairs, each with its own window seat and eave closet. They share a full bathroom. Another room can be used for overnight guests, or as a place for your kids to play in. The loft area looks down into the great room, and it has lots of shelves and space for a computer nook.

The two–car garage with a tractor, workshop, or greenhouse space connects directly to the home with a small covered stoop, which could be enclosed.
