The Torrington offers some upscale features not usually found in a duplex. Its owners might enjoy keeping one unit as a vacation retreat, while renting the other unit out. This Craftsman-style duplex's cantilevered set back is visually interesting, and the recessed porches are widely separated to enhances the privacy.

Double walls provide extra sound buffering between the two units, and an exterior wall separates the covered patios. Bedrooms are along the outer edges, thus assuring private sleeping environments as well.

Both units have identical but reversed floor plans. Standing in the entry, the living/dining area is on one side, a coat closet and passageway to the bedrooms are forward, and direct access to the garage is on the opposite side.

This duplex design boasts a lofty, vaulted living and dining area. The high ceiling creates an expansive sense of openness, with natural illumination during daylight hours. Plenty of natural light washes in through a wide windows in the front, along with a smaller dormer window higher up.

In the kitchen the ceiling is flat and an overhead plant shelf and raised eating bar marks the boundary.

Stove, sink and refrigerator is a step-efficient triangle convenient for meal preparation and clean up. Cupboards and work surfaces are plenty. Counters wrap around three sides, while a floor-to-ceiling pantry boosts additional storage space.

Another storage closet is found in the hallway to the bedrooms and a two-section bathroom.
