Shingle siding, soaring expanses of glass and broad roof overhanges merge this house gently into is surroundings. The entry leads to the home's showcase feature - an octagonal living room where the ceiling hovers 21 feet overhead. Mullions on the upper window and the transoms of the lower windows create intimacy, yet allow plenty of dappled sunlight to cascade into the living room. The two story living space is almost tree trunklike in its setting. Other rooms spin off the central room like limbs. The overall orgainzation of the plan breaks down into smaller spaces, creating zones for living.

The main level master bedroom has views of the surrounding through large window on two walls. A balcony connects two other bedrooms on the upper level, offering an unforgettable view of the living room and outdoors.

An 8 foot wide deck wraps around much of the house. Originally designed to have a screen porch between the living romm and kitchen but can be modified turn it into a dining room, using the original dining room as a family room.

This home is designed with a basement foundation that can be converted a lower level walk out.
