Kelseyville makes the most of a sloped lot
The Kelseyville's Craftsman-style front facade is intriguing. Stone veneer wainscoting and columns draw eyes to the lower sections, while shake-textured siding and decorative supports highlight low gables on four different levels.
This multilevel plan is designed for construction on land that slopes up at the rear. A two-car garage is at the lowest level. Entry and foyer are half a flight up, as are secondary bedrooms. Both have direct access to a two-section bathroom.
Another half flight of steps brings you to a bright and spacious vaulted great room, where windows fill most of the rear wall. A set of atrium doors admit still more light and provide access to a partially covered patio.
Due to the upslope, the patio is at ground level here. Double doors access a large storage area, ideal for gardening equipment, barbecue grills, etc.
The dining room is every bit as bright as the great room. Colorful flames and warmth in the gas fireplace can be enjoyed from either side.
A wide opening links the great room to a large kitchen, expanded by a sunny nook. Storage and counters wrap around three sides, and a large walk-in pantry fills one corner. A long work island with built-in prep sink is at center.
Sliders in the nook access a covered deck, ideal for warm weather meals. Potted plants are sure to thrive in the windowed triangle in front of the sink.
The Kelseyville's vaulted master suite is yet another half flight up. Soft light filters into the luxurious bathroom through glass blocks in the spa alcove. In front of the sleeping area, it's delightful to imagine reading or day dreaming in the wide window seat.
