It takes a bit of study to realize this is a duplex. One unit has two stories and three bedrooms, while the other is a single-level, two-bedroom unit. Both units have raised eating bars that bound kitchens open to spacious great rooms. And the units are very well-separated, offering plenty of privacy.

Corydon a duplex perfect for corner lot
The Corydon is not your standard mirror-image duplex. In fact, it takes a bit of study to see what's going on with the floor plan.
Here's how it shakes down. The plan is designed for construction on a corner lot, or a wide lot with both front and side access. Front porches are not next to each other, and garages are well-separated. This gives each unit a large measure of privacy.
Unit A has two stories. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs, and it has direct access to a two-car garage.
Unit B is a single-level, two-bedroom plan with an attached, direct entry one-car garage, right next to a two-car garage. It would be up to the owners, which unit used this second double garage.
This plan would be ideal for an owner-tenant who likes to travel. They could live in one unit, and use that extra garage to store a boat and/or travel trailer while they're not on the road.
Both units have raised eating bars that bound kitchens open to spacious great rooms. Sliding glass windows in the dining areas open to access a joined patio separated by a privacy wall.
In unit A, a convenient powder room is just inside the front door, right next to laundry appliances that hide behind folding doors. A storage closet is tucked beneath the stairs leading to the second floor. Upstairs, a linen closet is on the landing, just outside the bathroom. The owners' suite has a private bathroom, complete with shower.
The Corydon's unit B is smaller but has a wider front porch. It has two bedrooms and a two-section bathroom. Laundry appliances are right opposite the high-efficiency kitchen.
