Ideal for View Lot
From the front, the Forsythia has the appearance of a typical contemporary ranch-style home. A bird's-eye view of the floor plan tells a different story. A large, dramatic hexagonal space forms its core, with wings jutting out to the right and left.
This home offers broad vistas to the rear, making it ideal for construction as a vacation retreat with a view. But it is equally well-suited for construction in a more urban setting, with a view of a nicely landscaped rear yard.
Framed out twin columns support the roof of the lofty, covered porch. Double doors open into a high-ceilinged entry, naturally illuminated by a wide transom. An art niche is ahead and to the right; an open passageway is ahead and to the left. It leads directly into the bright and spacious great room, where six pie-shaped ceiling sections slope up to one central apex.
Windows, wide and high, fill most of the three rear wall sections, offering stunning vistas from anywhere in the great room. A free-standing wood stove provides warmth when needed.
Counters wrap around four sides of the G-shaped kitchen. One long, angled counter is open to the great room, while a raised eating bar rims another peninsular counter. Sink and dishwasher are built in on the kitchen side.
The Forsythia's owners' suite serves as a quiet retreat, entirely filling the left wing. Sliding doors in the vaulted sleeping area provide direct access to the rear deck. Bathroom features include: a roomy walk-in closet, a spa tub with a shower head, and a totally private toilet.
Secondary bedrooms, a bathroom, and a utility room are in the right wing.
