A wheelchair-accessible 2-bedroom guest cottage at the rear gives this ranch-style house plan great versatility. The detached cottage could comfortably house a family member or two, young or old. Or it could be rented out as a separate unit.
In the main house, family living areas fill the left wing, while bedrooms are on the right. Natural light washes into the vaulted living room through a wide set of windows. On dark days and nights, the masonry fireplace offers a warm and welcoming focal point.
The ceiling drops and flattens where the living room flows into the kitchen/dining area. Standing at the kitchen sink, you face into the dining room across a convenient eating bar. Light washes in through a skylight and windows on two sides. One set opens onto a large patio, partially covered. Laundry appliances are nearby, in a utility room with direct patio access.
Another vaulted ceiling expands the owners' suite, which boasts two walk-in closets, patio access, a compact bathroom, and a roomy sitting area. A pool or spa tub could be right outside.
