For a scenic lake or mountain lot, this spectacular design takes full advantage of the views. I designed a three-sided wraparound deck to expand the relationship between indoor and outdoor living. The sunken living room with a 19-ft. cathedral ceiling, a skylight, a beautiful fireplace and glass galore is the heart of the floor plan. Both the formal dining room and the kitchen overlook the living room and the surrounding deck beyond. The main-floor master bedroom has a 12-ft. cathedral ceiling and private access to the deck and hall bath. Upstairs, two more bedrooms share a skylighted bath and flank a dramatic balcony sitting area that views to the living room below.
