This week’s house plan

Stately and regal, the Sedalia’s soaring arched entry gives this home the appearance of being larger than it really is. But with over 2,500 square feet of floor space, no one could say it is small.

A wealth of multipaned windows are across all sides of the brick veneer exterior. Brick detailing crowns the gently arched openings, underscores the windows and accents the built-in planters.

Entering, you step into an elegant vaulted entry. The great room, through an arched opening straight ahead, is also vaulted. A fireplace nestles into an angled wall while across the room, slender windows flank the French doors that open into a large screened porch.

All that divides the great room from the kitchen is a long eating bar. Standing at the work island’s built-in cooktop, you can converse with folks at the eating counter or in the great room. Kitchen counters wrap around the inside of a wide window bay that provides plenty of natural illumination. Built-in standard and microwave ovens are next to a step-in pantry.

Moods brighten and potted plants flourish in the vaulted, skylit sun room that expands the kitchen. The exterior walls are almost entirely glass. Double doors swing open, providing access to an almost octagonal dining room with a stately trayed ceiling.

Another vaulted ceiling adds volume to the sleeping area of the Sedalia’s owners’ suite. Other amenities here include a separate sitting area and a double walk-in closet. The luxurious owners’ bathroom has dual lavs, a soaking tub, and glass-block enclosed toilet and shower.

The front bedroom is ideal for use as a study or home office.
