Panoramic views can be seen from every major room, and a wide wrap-around deck spans the entire rear of this Craftsman home plan. The vaulted hexagonal great room at this home's core is lavishly windowed, has a fireplace, and is open to a kitchen rich in counters and cupboards. A second fireplace graces the deluxe owners' suite.

Hexagonal Vista has great views
With some homes, the name is tacked on as an after thought. Not so, the Vista. This home was designed for maximum appreciation of a view - hilltop, river bank, lakeside, ocean, or what have you.
Every major room is rimmed with windows facing the rear. And to enhance the viewing possibilities, a wide railed deck spans the entire back of the dwelling, adding extensive outdoor living space.
A vaulted, hexagonal great room, windowed on three sides, is at the core. Two sets of sliding glass doors in the center section provide deck access and allow cooling breezes for air circulation in summer. When the weather turns gray and cloudy, you can kindle a fire in the fireplace and watch the flames.
The kitchen is large, with plenty of counter and cupboard space. Two or more cooks can work together in this kitchen, without getting in each other's way. Standing at the kitchen sink, or in front of the stove, you can gaze across the great room for full enjoyment of the panoramic view. Washer and dryer are close at hand, in an angled utility room equipped with a sink.
The master suite is well-isolated from the secondary bedrooms and boasts its own fireplace and sitting area. Other luxuries include a huge walk-in closet and a private bathroom with twin lavs, spa tub, oversized shower and separately enclosed water closet. Glass blocks over the tub provide natural illumination.
The Vista's other two bedrooms share a bathroom. One of the rooms is larger than the other and has a walk-in closet.
