House height    
Traditionally, the overall height of a house is determined by measuring from the top of the finished floor on the main level, to the highest peak of the roof.
23' 0"
Ceiling heights    
Raising or lowering the height of the ceilings on one or more floors of a house is often a simple change that can be made by your builder. However, if you want to raise the ceiling of the main floor of a two-story home, there has to be room to add steps to the existing staircase.
  Main level 10
Vaulted ceilings    
We consider a room to be vaulted if the ceiling - whether flat, angled, or curved - is above 10 feet at its highest point. If you prefer that one or more rooms not be vaulted in your new home, this is a very simple change that your builder can make for you.

As the photos make clear, this is a truly breathtaking home, inside and out. The exterior design is as unique as it is beautiful. No one can look at this house – day or night – without being moved in some way! This is luxury living at its finest, with sumptuous materials and dramatic spaces throughout. This stunning home opens in the rear to a curved deck with a dramatic barrel roof above it, and a covered patio below it. Abundant glass doors and windows light the interiors, which are detailed with wood beams and wood columns. The prominent curve of the deck is repeated as a design element in many parts of the house, such as the great room rear wall, the staircases, the upper balcony, the lower bar, framing the entry and the larger windows, and the planters around the exterior.

Upon entering the foyer from the covered porch, through the tall stained glass and wood double doors, you find yourself in a two–story space with a view into and through the great room, and to the balcony on the upper floor. There is an open, elegantly curved stairwell on either side, which provide views to the floor below as well. Straight ahead, wood columns frame the opening to the great room, which has a ceiling that vaults from 20'6" at the sides to 24'6" in the center, and a curved wall of lower and upper windows and glass doors at the rear. The doors lead to the curved outdoor deck, which has a barrel roof that covers the center portion of it. On one side is an outdoor fireplace, and on the other is an outdoor grill, providing a perfect space to entertain in warmer weather. On one side of the great room is an impressive stone fireplace hearth that reaches the two–story ceiling height, and the other side is open to the kitchen and breakfast nook. Windows and glass doors light the kitchen and breakfast area, and a pair of sliding doors provides direct access to the rear deck. The spacious gourmet kitchen has room for a large refrigerator and a separate freezer, and a center island provides additional counter space as well as a breakfast bar for eating. Next to the kitchen is a walk–in pantry, a dining room framed by wood columns, and a centrally located powder room. Next to the kitchen is a large laundry room, a nanny room/guest room with a full bath and a private deck, and a four–car garage.

To the right of the great room are the bedrooms and a library. The master bedroom suite has a fireplace in one corner, and sliding glass doors to the curved rear deck. The master bath features both a set–in shower and a jetted tub, two separated sinks, a private toilet, and it accesses a truly huge walk–in closet with its own optional washer and dryer. The second bedroom has its own private full bath, and its own private deck. All of the ceilings on this floor – except for the foyer and great room – are set at a lofty 10'.

Upstairs, a curved central bridge looks down to the great room on one side and the foyer on the other. Under the sloped ceilings, there is an open loft on each side of the bridge. The right loft has an optional fireplace, creating a cozy environment for a play room or a reading room. The loft space on the left has a wet bar and a door leading to a covered viewing platform, and could be used as a library. As you can see from the floor plans, either or both of these spaces can be built as bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.

After walking down the curved stairwell to the lower level, you enter a large open recreation room with a fireplace. Glass doors and windows line the rear wall to bring in sunlight and outdoor views. A curved bar is located in the center, with a wine cellar behind it, and an area for wine tasting. The open room has space for a billiards area, a gaming area, and a media area. To the right there is a storage room, and a guest suite with a private full bath, a walk–in closet, and sliding glass doors to the outdoor patio. To the left, there is a powder room, a home theater room, a tech room, and a large open storage space. Ceiling heights vary on this level: 9'6" in the billiards and media areas, 10' in the bar area, and 10'6" in both the gaming area and the guest suite.

Smaller Version Now Available!
For years folks have asked for a smaller version of this extraordinary house, and the designer has finally created one! It's called Luxury Living 4. The above ground living area has dropped from 4,585 sf to just 2,700 sf, but the look and feel of the house inside and out is unchanged.

And we continue to offer Luxury Living 2 (the original house without the lower level) and Luxury Living 3 (the original with an expanded master suite). For easy access to these other versions, click on the architect's name (in bold blue letters, on the left side of this page). Red links to each of his plans appear below his bio, in alphabetical order.

    Select Optional Add-ons

       

    Sometimes the house you want will only work on your property if it is built in the reverse of the original design. The plans for this particular design can be reversed by the architect, with right-reading (not mirror-reverse) words and measurements. The fee will only be added to your original order. If you wish to order more reverse copies of the plans later, please call us toll-free at 1-888-388-5735.

    $150
       

    If you need more than 5 sets, you can add them to your initial order, or order them (by phone) at a later date.

    This option is only available to folks ordering the 5-Set Package.

    $50 each
       

    Often views or site characteristics make it either advantageous or necessary to build a house in the reverse of the way the plans were originally drawn. When reversed, the front of the house continues to face in the same direction, but rooms that were on the right side of the house as you face it will now be on the left, and vice versa. The lettering and numbers will appear as they would if you held the plans up to a mirror, but this will not present a problem for your builders, as they are quite familiar with this process.

    We recommend that your order include both right-reading and mirror-reverse copies, since permit officials and lenders will need to see a right-reading version. There is a one-time cost of $50 to reverse the plans, whether you buy them all in your initial purchase, or a follow up order. The number you will need of each version is something your builder should advise you on.

    Please note: If a right-reading reverse version of the plans is offered, this is definitely the version you should purchase, whether you're interested in bonds, vellums, or electronic files (when available).

    • What is bond paper?

      Bond paper

      Printers stopped using blue ink many years ago - it was very difficult to read, and the fumes were dangerous to inhale. So what we used to refer to as blueprints are now called bond copies (black ink printed on white bond paper).
    • 5-Set Construction or Bid Set

      5-Set Construction or Bid Set

      If you are building in an area that requires very few copies to construct a house, all you might need is the 5-Set Package. It's also best for folks wanting either a quick bid process, or bids from more than one builder. In either case, you can always purchase more bond copies later on if you need them, or upgrade to a Mylar, PDF or CAD version (your original cost will be deducted from the price of the upgrade). Bond copies cannot be duplicated, but they come with a formal Copyright License that gives you the legal right to construct the house, and to modify the plans beforehand to suit your needs. If allowed in your area, modifications can be "marked up" (some people refer it as "red-lining") right on the plans.
    • What is mylar?

      Mylar

      Vellum paper is no longer being manufactured, so we've switched to a vastly superior product called Mylar. These semi-transparent sheets are actually a thin-film composite that was designed for plan modification, using a simple electric eraser. The ink that is printed on them sits on the surface (instead of sinking into a coated vellum sheet), so lines and dimensions can be erased and redrawn quite easily by any design professional.
    • Plans printed on Mylar

      Plans printed on Mylar

      If you - like the vast majority of our other customers - intend to modify the plans before construction, and you are building in an area where plans can't simply be "marked up" with a red pen, the Mylar copy is definitely what you should order (unless of course you prefer the PDF version). After the changes have been made to this "master" copy, you or your builder can then print as many copies as you need, whenever you need them, on regular bond paper. That way everyone - you, your builder, his or her subcontractors, local permit officials, and your lender - will have the final version of the plans to work with. Even though they cost a bit more initially, they will definitely save you time and money later on. Mylar copies come with a formal Copyright Release giving you the legal right to modify them in any way you wish, and to make as many copies of the plans as you need to successfully build one house. Mylar copies are shipped with a free bond copy of the plans, so that you have something to look over and mark up before making final decisions about the changes you want made to the "master" set.
    • What are PDF electronic files?

      PDF electronic files

      The acronym PDF stands for Portable Document Format. These are electronic files that can be emailed from computer to computer. You can open them on your own computer as well as email them to others, and the Copyright Release you receive with them allows you to make as many copies as you need before and after modifications are made.
    • Plans in PDF format

      Plans in PDF format

      THE most popular way to purchase plans these days is in PDF format. It's no more expensive than the Mylar version, plus you save $30 in shipping fees because the plans are emailed to you. But the biggest reason why they're so popular is because they can be passed along to others via email. The builder can zip them to their sub-contractors, truss manufacturers, and (if needed) an engineer; you can open them on your own computer to view at your home or office; and you can zip them to your builder (or builders), lender, and anyone needing to approve the plans before construction. If you'd still like to make modifications on Mylar sheets, your Copyright Release allows you (or your builder) to do this locally, and you'll only need to print a handful of the most important sheets.
    • What are CAD files?

      CAD files

      The acronym CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design. Design software from AutoCAD and numerous other companies - ArchiCAD, SoftPlan, VectorWorks, etc. - is used to draw plans in a format (DWG - short for drawing) that can be easily manipulated and modified on a computer. This can speed up the process of modification dramatically - for example, a change in one part of the plans creates an automatic change throughout the drawings -- potentially saving the person making the changes quite a bit of time, and thus saving you quite a bit of money!
    • Plans in CAD format

      Plans in CAD format

      Plans purchased in this electronic format are emailed, so you get them right away, and there's no shipping fee. Like the Mylar and PDF options, these plans come with a formal Copyright Release giving you the legal right to modify them in any way you wish, and to make as many copies of the plans as you need to successfully build one house. If the changes you wish to make to our plans are rather extensive, or structural in nature (including changing exterior wall systems), purchasing the plans in CAD format will almost certainly be your best option. Design professionals charge by the hour, and making changes to electronic files is much faster and easier than erasing and redrawing lines and dimensions on a Mylar copy. So purchasing an electronic version of the plans can save you both time and money. The files you receive will provide the drawings in at least two formats: .DWG files that will enable the person modifying your plans to do so using AutoCAD software (the standard for the entire construction and engineering communities); and .PDF files that will enable you to view the plans on your home or office computer. If the plans were originally drawn with a design software program other than AutoCAD (eg. SoftPlan, ArchiCAD, VectorWorks, etc.), this will be noted at the end of the Description of this house, and the email will include these files along with the .DWG and .PDF formats.
    Bedrooms

    We highly recommend that you click on two boxes – the number of bedrooms you know you need, and one less bedroom. For example, if you need 4 bedrooms, click on the boxes next to 4 and next to 3. Otherwise you will not see homes where existing rooms on the lower, main, or upper levels might work perfectly well as a bedroom instead of as an office, study, etc.
