Multi-level Fairview a cozy rustic retreat
Shake shingles give a rustic, woodsy air to the Fairview, a mid-size multi-level home with a detached garage.
As drawn, the main floor of the garage is one floor lower than the main floor of the house. If built on a flat lot, the breezeway would connect to the garage's ground level instead of the roomy upper storage area.
Designed for a single or couple, this plan has only one bedroom. The entire second floor is dedicated to a large vaulted Owners' suite. Light washes into this spacious sleeping and sitting room through numerous windows, plus three large skylights. Other amenities include an extra-large walk-in closet, dual vanity, spa tub and custom shower.
Vaulted gathering spaces fill most of the ground floor, and the kitchen is very much at the heart of everything. Working there, you can look out across both arms of the L-shaped eating bar into the dining room or living room.
Four skylights, along with plenty of windows, naturally illuminate the living room on all but the darkest of days. When those shorter days and long nights come, a masonry fireplace stands ready to provide warmth and color.
One of the rear corners houses a complete home entertainment center, and wide sliding glass doors offer access to a large deck bounded at the corners by raised brick planters.
Standing on the Fairview's covered entry porch, you have two choices: proceed ahead to the main entry, or walk through sliding glass doors on the left, into a room ideally situated to serve as a home office. Of course, it could also be furnished as a den, second bedroom, hobby room, or whatever suits.
