Wings extend out in two opposite directions from the vaulted and richly windowed hexagonal great room at center of this prairie home plan, while a covered patio spans much of the rear. In addition to its luxurious bathroom, the vaulted owners' suite has a sitting area that shares a two-sided fireplace with the great room.

At first glance, the Aberdeen’s wide footprint gives it a ranch-style flavor. But the low-pitched hipped rooflines are equally reminiscent of Prairie-style homes, popular in the early 1900s. The rustic stone veneer and clean-lined metal roofing give it a crisp, intriguing look.
Passing through the stick-accented, vaulted porte-cochere, you step into a wide, vaulted foyer, awash in natural light. Wide Craftsman windows flank the front door, while custom-angled gabled transoms fill most of the high foyer vault above.
The foyer expands out into a vaulted, hexagonal great room, as bright as it is spacious. Build it in the right location, and the rear view will be breathtaking. Stone veneer columns support the covered patio that wraps across most of the rear, so there’s plenty of outdoor living space from which to enjoy that view.
On the left is a two-way fireplace, also viewable from the sitting area of the owners’ suite. On the right is the kitchen, open to the great room across a raised eating bar. This gourmet cooking area has a work island that boosts the already abundant counter and storage space. A desk could be built into the kitchen/nook juncture.
The luxurious, vaulted owners’ suite is on the left. Flames in the Aberdeen’s two-sided fireplace can be enjoyed from the bed or sitting area, where double doors swing in to provide direct access to a covered patio and spa tub. A roomy walk-in closet is across from a smaller one, and the luxurious bathroom offers direct patio access.
Two more large bedrooms share a two-section bathroom in the right wing, and a powder room is near the kitchen, as well.
