Split Level Contemporary
A graceful colonnade adds a subtle touch of class to this split-level contemporary home plan. If you count the basement, this home actually has four levels. Kitchen, living room, dining room, guest room and garage are at ground level. A bathroom and utility room are at mid-level, located on the landing between the first and second floor. Rooms on the upper level include a loft, which overlooks the living room/dining rooms, and a luxurious master suite. Many of the rooms are richly windowed, creating a home that is both bright and visually interesting. Skylights brighten the mid-level bathroom, the master bath, the stairway, and the guest bath. Windows take up one wall in the dining room, creating an elegant formal dining area, and one living room wall features a set of tall, multipaned windows topped with a half-round. The vaulted ceiling in both of the rooms further contributes to the impression of airy spaciousness. The guest room, located on the ground floor, would be ideal for housing an elderly parent or independent teen. It has a private entrance from the patio, and a compartmentalized private bathroom. Both the loft and the master suite have walk-in closets. The loft could be outfitted as a den, hobby room, or bedroom, as needed.
