The Ventura's entrance is framed by sparkling panes that stack along the left. This creates a feeling of openness and welcome. This dramatic entrance is unusual for a modestly-sized home that was built at a low cost. The Ventura is a great choice for an older couple or a young family.
The brickwork flanking the garage doors and the high arched windows that echo the graceful curve of entry add a touch of tradition. The bright room facing the entrance could be used either as a bedroom or a home office. The room has a door that leads into the bedroom. You could add or replace the door leading into the entrance.
This plan is traditional and includes clusters of bedrooms on the right side, while the family living areas are on the left. Each room has its own environment. In the bright and spacious living room, a fireplace is tucked away in the corner furthest from the large window. The sliding glass doors of the dining room make it easy to serve meals on the deck if the weather is nice.
A pocket door separates the kitchen from the dining area. The window-lit eating nook is a great place to enjoy your daily meals. In the pass-through between the nook, and a garage that has a built-in bench, utilities are easily accessible. The stairway can be replaced with a pantry or storage closet if the Ventura does not have a basement.
