Styled with sophistication, this contemporary home plan is filled with surprises. Ceilings change height from room to room. Rooms are intriguingly angular, emphasized by tray ceilings that drop around the rooms' perimeters. Walls of windows make spacious rooms appear even airier. The plan revolves around an expansive family room with a fireplace, media center, and bookshelves. A half-wall opens to the kitchen, so the cook can keep an eye on children or stay involved with the conversation. On the kitchen side, the sink counter bends toward the breakfast nook to create a lunch counter. There are no upper cabinets on the sink wall, but the walk-in pantry offers a wealth of storage space.
French doors are used repeatedly, turning the den and master suite into private retreats and opening the vaulted-ceiling bedroom to the terrace and bath. A his-and-her sink counter in the bath jogs along the wall between the shower stall and doors. A whirlpool tub is tucked into a cozy alcove with windows and a dropped ceiling.
