Window-rich, Vaulted Hexagonal Great Room at its Core
Viewed from the front, there's no clue that the Linfield is basically a hexagon with wings. But once inside you see it at once. You find yourself standing in a window-rich, vaulted great room where six pie-shaped sections of ceiling slope up to a lofty central apex.
This plan is designed for construction on a down slope to the rear. That puts the entrance at ground level, while elevating the panoramic deck that wraps across the rear, one flight up from the ground. From the rear, it looks like a two-story house, and in a way, it is. The undeveloped daylight basement can be converted to living space as time and resources permit, thereby almost doubling the floor space.
Dining and living room flow together, filling the windowed half of the great room. On one side, a masonry fireplace provides warmth and color when the days turn dark and dreary.
Standing at the cook stove in the spacious kitchen, you face into the dining room and beyond. Counter space is in good supply, and a roomy pantry expands the available storage.
Utilities are nearby, just a few steps across the vaulted entry. A deep sink is built in, along with storage cabinets over the appliances.
The owners' suite, as well as the secondary bedrooms, have wide windows with rear views. The suite and one other bedroom also have sliders that provide deck access.
Other owners' suite amenities include: a large sitting area with fireplace, huge walk-in closet, and plush bathroom outfitted with a double vanity, shower, private water closet, and spa.
A curved driveway sweeps across the front, leading into the Linfield's two-car garage.
