ELEVATION  FLOOR PLANS

__________This contemporary split entrance ranch is typical of the style of house built in its time. The plan is generally typical of the style, but is distinctive in the general architecture, featuring reverse board and batten vertical wood panel siding and used brick under the overhang. The overhang of the front of the main level (typically twelve to fifteen inches) is, in this case, two feet. Also the two main sections of the main level are deliberately separated by the wall of the main entry door, which is the full height of the front. This presents two whole and distinct, proportional masses extending from the main foundation and house lines; thus (along with the vertical shadows of the siding) offering pleasant shadows and making a convenient overhang and small shelter for the front door and entry platform.

The main floor plan is pleasantly an open plan with the living room and dining room blending in to one another and the dining room and economically planned kitchen doing likewise. The living room sports a large bow window and a large, rough sawn, beam ceiling and one beam delineates the living room from the dining room. The dining room features large gliding doors which open to a large deck overlooking the private yard with in-ground pool.

The lower level features a large "L" shaped family room complete with bar, floor to ceiling fire place, barn board wall finish and textured plaster ceiling with a full length, large, working beam support. The remainder of the lower level houses a private office and a guest toilet and laundry area.
