Contemporary House Plan 3

First Floor Plan
Second Floor Plan

Third Floor Plan

Contemporary House 3 is a 25'x105' "Linear Home". It is a 2900 sf plan with a master suite, second bedroom suite, and a third floor get away that can be a study or a third bedroom. The linear plan layout results in a long facade toward the street that creates the image of a substantially larger home. On the inside the linear open plan reinforces the perception of a large home despite it's modest square footage. The first level is laid out for entertaining with a large central entry hall for greeting guests who can then easily circulate to the living room or large kitchen dining area. A covered verandah off the living room expands the entertaining area as an outdoor room complete with fireplace. The visual connection of the in line spaces encourages circulation between gathering and sitting areas. The large kitchen area can accommodate a table for 10 to 14 or can be arranged with four smaller independent tables seating four each.

A covered carport provides direct protected access into the house for rainy days and can be used as a carport. The garage can be made into a home office or shop if not needed for car storage. The master suite has a walk in closet that connects directly to a large laundry room that can also be used for messy projects you wouldn't want to do in the kitchen.

Contemporary House Plan 3 Interiors

On the first level one can visually see from one end of the house to the other, a distance of 53', making the home feel much larger than it is. Running the stairs in a linear pattern along the street elevation provides not only privacy, but also means that interior stairs are not blocking the visual connection between spaces and that the floor area can be fully utilized.
