Multi-level Catkin has room for extended family
Interesting and unusual, the Catkin is a multi-level lodge plan with a Craftsman bungalow flavor. Handsome fieldstone entry pillars, and low gables with decorative shakes and gable-end detailing hark back to the early 1900s. Elevated decks update the design.
Having two master suites, four bathrooms, and three additional bedrooms, this plan is an ideal vacation home for an extended family.
From the foyer it's a half-flight up to the main floor and a half-flight down to the ground floor. A parade of windows sparkling across the rear walls on both levels provides stunning vistas and natural illumination. More windows at the third level brighten a cozy vaulted loft.
Rear rooms on the main floor are vaulted, adding to the sense of spaciousness, similar to a Chalet house plan. Living room and dining room flow together and access a large elevated deck. Shelves and cabinets flank the fieldstone fireplace.
A smaller deck adjoins the large kitchen. Imagine sipping your morning coffee here, or enjoying a leisurely lunch and siesta. Plants flourish in the bright corner where the kitchen sink faces out across the deck, and the room boasts plenty of storage and counter space.
Expanded by a wide window bay, the main level master suite is bright and luxurious. Amenities include: a walk-in closet, spa tub, oversized shower, double vanity and private toilet. The lower level master bathroom is less luxurious, but closet space is nearly double.
Utilities are on the Catkin's lower floor, adjacent to the garage, bedrooms and family room. A patio and deck add to the outdoor living space. The deck houses a large hot tub, and a stairway to the upper deck.
