This week’s house plan Lynden 30-143

Multiple peaks and a lofty arched porch make viewing the Lynden an uplifting experience. A wrap-around planter, plus half-round windows in the door and front bay, add touches of grace. This single level plan could be adapted for wheelchair accessibility.

The 12-foot-high entry gives you an instant feeling of spaciousness. Double doors on the left open into a bright room expanded by a window bay that fills most of the front wall. This room could be a home office, study, or parlor, whatever suits the needs of the family.

An art niche nestles into the passageway leading into the kitchen and great room. Across from the kitchen, another window bay brightens the eating nook.

Kitchen and great room are all of a piece. A raised eating bar provides seating for conversation and snacking, while blocking the view of kitchen clutter. Cupboard space is in generous supply, augmented by the step-in pantry next to the nook. Counter space is ample, as well. Natural light washes in through side and rear windows, while the sliding door at the back opens onto a small patio. When the weather outside isn’t worth looking at, you can kindle a fire in the corner fireplace and enjoy watching the flames instead. Bedrooms line up along the right. Amenities in the owners’ suite include a large walk-in closet and a two-section bathroom that provides privacy and steam containment for toilet and shower. Secondary bedrooms are equal in size and share access to the Lynden’s main bathroom. Utilities are tucked in a pass-through that connects with the garage.
