This week’s house plan

The ranch-style Cameron is a large home, designed for construction over a full basement. Vaulted ceilings in the owners’ suite and gathering spaces add to the airy sense of spaciousness. All on one level, this plan is easily adapted for wheelchair accessibility.

It’s traditional having the living room and dining room flank the entry, but the rest of the plan is clearly contemporary. And for families who prefer a home office to a living room, the location next to the entry is ideal.

This home is naturally illuminated throughout. High dormers spill soft light down into the entry and dining room. Both living room and dining room have wide, multipaned windows, and the entire rear of the home is more windows than walls. Skylights in the nook make this space so bright that you’ll only need electric lighting at night.

Kitchen and great room flow together, bounded by a raised eating bar. A masonry fireplace and an entertainment center nestle into the corner and wall farthest from the windows.

Comfortably roomy, the kitchen offers plenty of storage and enough counter space for a family of cooks to work together. The built-in desk is convenient for keeping household business details well organized.

The Cameron’s sleeping areas are widely separated. The owners’ suite dominates the right wing while three more bedrooms, two baths and a utility room fill the opposite wing.

In the owners’ suite, a window seat wraps around the wide, curved window bay. Other amenities include: his-and-her walk-in closets, double vanity, walk-in shower, private toilet and a spa tub with plant shelf.
