This week’s house plan

Taking in the bold wooden beams of the Woodcliffe’s porte cochere and entry, what springs to mind is an upscale hunting lodge. Or maybe a Northwestern-style chalet.

Either designation could easily fit this expansive Craftsman-style home. All 3,500-plus square feet of it are on one level.

Behind the vaulted porte cochere is a vaulted breezeway that leads to an even loftier vaulted porch. Handsome squared wooden posts support and accent the entire passageway.

Entering the home, you step into a breathtaking vaulted great room, richly windowed at the rear. A fireplace and home entertainment center line one wall.

Two of the great room’s five window sets slide open to provide air flow and access to a patio, part of which is covered and vaulted. On the left, a long, multiangled eating bar marks the kitchen’s boundary.

More light washes into the kitchen through a skylight. Working at the cook top or handy prep sink, you face into the great room and can enjoy the rear vista as well.

A bayed nook is at one end and a roomy pantry is at the other, right around the corner from a large home office with a free-standing woodstove. Counters, shelves and a desk with file drawers are all built into this skylit space, as is a wide closet that fills the rear wall.

Storage closets line the hallway on the right, which leads to a vaulted den and the Woodcliffe’s deluxe owners’ suite. Luxuries here include a double-wide walk-in closet, plus a skylit bathroom with a deep soaking tub and an oversized walk-in shower.

Two more bedrooms, a vaulted family room and a double-entry bathroom are in the left wing.
