Home can be residence, retreat or rental
An array of sparkling windows fills most of the Matice's rear elevation, and quite a bit of the front as well. Designed as a vacation retreat with a majestic mountain vista to the rear, this tri-level plan allows appreciation of any natural setting, be it ocean, lake, river, much like a Chalet style home plan. On the other hand, it wouldn't be the least bit out of place in a residential neighborhood.
Some families like to rent their vacation homes to other families from time to time, so this plan includes two unique owners' closets, hidden behind walk-in closets in the master suite and guest suite. The extra storage space will come in handy whether you rent or not.
The three levels are configured differently than most. The main floor is a half-flight up from the foyer, while garage, utilities, a guest suite, a bedroom and a family room are a half-flight down, along with a huge storage space. The third floor consists of a large vaulted loft overlooking the living room.
Vaulted ceilings add to the sense of spaciousness in the master suite, living room, dining room and kitchen. Windows fill most of the high rear walls, so these rooms are naturally illuminated. Kitchen features include a pantry, work island, eating bar and built-in appliances. The corner sink offers views in two directions, and the small deck is a delightful setting for warm weather meals.
Two sets of French double doors open onto an elevated deck with space for a hot tub half a flight down. The patio is another half-flight lower. Deck access is also available from the Matice's master suite.
