The living room is a bright octagonal space has a 10-foot ceiling and high arched windows on five sides. If constructed in a scenic setting, the room offers a panoramic vista. The home plan is only 50 feet wide; therefore, it fits on a standard city lot as well.
The lofty entry portico makes a striking first impression. Its arched opening echoes the shape of the living room windows while sidelights and an arched transom frame the front door.
A family room with a 9-foot-high ceiling is at the core of this plan. You can get there directly from almost every room in the house - from the bedrooms, entry, living room, dining room, kitchen, and screened patio. The family room has an eating bar and a large entertainment center, part of which could be a wet bar.
The bright entry has a 12-foot ceiling and a coat closet. Columns define the boundaries of the living room, family room and dining room.
Shelves for displaying family mementos and objects d'art create visual separation between the formal living room and the informal family room. A pocket door allows the kitchen to be closed off from the dining room.
The master suite has a large walk-in closet and a private bathroom with double vanity and enclosed shower and toilet.
