A few simple details, such as shuttered windows and cedar shingles can make the difference between a plain facade and an appealing home. But this duplex plan offers more than just a treat for the eye - it also houses two comfortable living units.
Each side contains open living space in a great room and dining room - both near an island kitchen with corner window sink. The great room features a nine-foot ceiling; the dining room has outdoor access. Double windows in both rooms brighten the whole area. A half-bath and coat closet are handy additions.
The second level holds bedrooms: two for family and guests, plus a master suite. The master bath is especially noteworthy with a walk-in closet and double sinks. The shared bath is compartmented for convenience. Note the thoughtful placement of the laundry room on the upper level.
