A contemporary house plan created for a demanding client  who wanted comfortable one story living while having room in the basement for two small guest bedrooms and a large workshop. The entry is on the North side, and is well covered by extended overhangs coming from the North and East. A stone patio with a radius curve creates an inviting place to meet guests. A large Foyer grants straight line views from the entry through to the back yard. The garage, the main Foyer, and the utility room are all accessed from this area.  In order to maintain a high level of energy efficiency, the Entry Foyer is closed off from the rest of the conditioned space, so that shaded glass surfaces don’t create too much load on the HVAC system. A full light door opens to the inside foyer, with built in book cases on the right and left, and a daylight view straight ahead to the South. On the right is a massive stone fireplace and hearth that lends its presence to the gathering room, the dining area, and the open style California kitchen. Ceiling height changes define the different areas, and the kitchen sits behind a large granite island flanked by a 12 x 12 natural wood post. To the North of the kitchen is a utility room and “butlers pantry” with an additional counter top, base cabinets, over head cabinets, sink, and wine cooler. A private retreat room and office is accessed from the utility room, giving straight away egress to the outer foyer. Beyond the dining room is a large multi use room, with a strong focus on media and home theater. Adjoining the theater room is a gracious three season porch and sundeck. This home lives outdoors as nicely as it does inside.  The dining area has an exterior door to a runway deck that features pulled cable safety rails. To the East of the Gathering room is the master suite. A short hall accesses two closets and the master bath. The laundry in this plan is accessed from the master bath, a customized convenience touch. Downstairs in the finished basement section, find two small bedrooms and a full bath. A short hall access the workshop area, which has access to the out doors via the South Facing daylight wall.  Don't hesitate to ask about customization possibilities.
