Hiding behind a neo-classical Georgian facade is a two-level contemporary floor plan with bright and spacious hexagonal living areas at its core. On the main floor, a covered deck wraps around the exterior of the great room, which includes a large kitchen. Below, a covered patio spans the outside of an expansive recreation room with a good-sized kitchenette.

Alder Springs is hexagonal at its core
An abundance of natural light washes into the Alder Springs great room through the self-same windows that offer great views to the rear. This home is designed for construction on a lot that slopes down at the left and back.
While its neo-classical Georgian front facade gives it a traditional look, the interior floor plan is totally contemporary. Outside, smooth columns frame the lofty covered porch; raised stone bands accent the bold brick-veneer-covered columns that support and highlight the porte cochere.
Expansive and richly windowed hexagonal rooms form the core of the interior on two levels. Both have wings. On the main floor, a wide covered deck wraps around three sides to offer the same fantastic viewing options as the great room. Doors in the central wall section provide deck access. At the basement level, similar doors lead to a covered patio that also wraps around three sides.
A gas fireplace sits at the center of one wall section in the great room. The kitchen, which carves out a place for itself on the opposite wall, has two peninsular counters, which you can look out across into the great room and beyond. The counter that fronts the sink is rimmed by a raised eating bar.
Two bedrooms and a bathroom are in the wing behind the kitchen. This wing also links to the porte cochere and its storage cabinets. A large utility room and the deluxe owners' suite fill the opposite wing, along with a private screened porch that opens onto the deck.
At the basement level of the Alder Springs, a large recreation room fills the hexagonal core, sharing space with a kitchenette, play room, and shop/storage area. A guest suite, bunk room and bathroom are also on this level.
