This is a compact design that affords great privacy to the front, but opens expansively to the rear. It will be a daily pleasure to pass from the cozy dining area to the double-height living area—and from there, onto a back deck through a retracting glass wall.
This efficiently designed home could sit comfortably on a town lot, or take root on a lakefront property with long views. Doubling as an overflow bedroom, the loft office upstairs provides a removed space for work or creativity, while maintaining visual contact with the great room and the views below and beyond. Allowing for single-level living, this home has been envisioned as a first home, a vacation home, or a retirement home.
