A typical one and one half story house from the curb surprises its guests with its beautiful staircase not going up to the second floor, but going down.
Designed to fit a hillside lot in mountainside or lake front communities, this inverted design places all of the secondary rooms on the lower level.
An added surprise is the two-story recreation room visible from the lower loft. No sub-basements in this plan. Utilizing all of the slope with finished rooms makes it easy to access grade level without going through a basement.
