The angled floor plan permits flexibility in site placemrnt for this contemporary ranch. Past the inviting entrance, the skylighted foyer awaits guests with a dramatic 14 1/2-ft. vaulted ceiling. An open staircase also invites one to the lower level. The spacious country kitchen has a bright skylight and sliding glass doors to a wraparound deck. I designed the spectacular Great Room's vaulted ceiling to soar to 19 ft., 8 in., encompassing a row of large front-facing clerestory windows. Flanked by sliding doors, the exciting corner fireplace warms the entire area. The master suite is secluded at the end of the bedroom hall. Plans for the optional lower level include two more bedrooms and a huge rec room, plus a hobby room and full bath. The home could also be built with aconventional basement or crawl space.
