This week’s house plan Canyonville 30-775

The generous use of stone veneer combines with a richly gabled front facade to give the Canyonville a distinctly European look. Its lofty, gently arched opening links bold columns that flank the entry portico. More stone veneer wraps across the front as wainscoting, and fills the entire face of the gabled extension closest to the street.

Sidelights brighten the foyer, which ends at a wide coat closet and an arched passageway leading to the family room. A hallway to the deluxe owners’ suite and a convenient powder room is around the corner to the left of the foyer. The wide opening on the foyer’s right feeds into what could be a hobby room, library, or whatever suits.

Windows fill most of the rear wall of the vaulted great room at the heart of the home. A fireplace nestles into a corner by the windows, and a home entertainment center lines the inner wall.

From the kitchen, you can watch TV or converse with family and friends in the great room or the dining room. A wrap-around counter is the only separation. The raised outer rim of the counter provides a visual barrier which hides the inevitable clutter of an active kitchen. The section that fronts the dining room widens out into an eating/conversation bar.

Counters wrap around all four sides of the gourmet kitchen, which is anchored by a large cook-top work island. Second floor stairs climb up from a juncture on one edge of the kitchen, which also has links to a large utility room, a guest suite, and a three-car garage with extra space for storage or a workbench.

A bedroom, den and full bathroom are upstairs in the Canyonville, plus an unfinished storage room with dormers over the garage.
