Slender columns mounted on brick veneer bases immediately catch the eye. Other beguiling Craftsman accents on the contemporary ranch house plan include single-hung multipaned windows, and textured shake siding filling the apexes of both front gables.
The arched openings that face each other across the foyer lead into a traditional living room and dining room. Both have wide windows facing the street. The living room is fully enclosed, but the dining room is linked to the kitchen. A pocket door allows total separation when desired.
Informal family gathering spaces are immediately to the rear of the house plan. Standing at the built-in range, you have a full view of everything going on in the family room, nook, patio and rear yard. The kitchen's walk-in pantry is the only part of the kitchen that is walled off.
Sliders in the nook access a partially covered patio that could easily be screened. An arched opening at the juncture of the kitchen and nook leads to the master suite, a linen closet, and a large pass-through utility room that connects with the two-car garage. Cabinets line both sides, and the long folding counter has a built-in utility sink.
Master suite amenities include an exceptionally deep walk-in closet, double vanity, walk-in shower, and totally private toilet.
An arched opening in the family room leads to two more bedrooms on the opposite side of the home plan, where they share use of the central bathroom.
