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.
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 12
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.

A tall, circular entry porch is supported by elegant square columns. You enter into a circular foyer with a 14′ ceiling that is ringed by tall rectangular columns. A large skylight brings natural light to this area. To the right of the foyer there is a curved stairwell to the lower floor, and to the left there is a private hallway that leads to a coat closet and a powder room. Circular steps walk down to the open living space. The ceiling is set at a dramatic 17’4″, and floor to ceiling windows look out to the covered terrace at the rear and to the outdoor views beyond. The original owners had the dining area on one side, and a ‘grand’ room with a wet bar, built–ins, and a fireplace on the other, with a music room between them. But the open layout provides flexibility in how you want to use the space. As you walk to the kitchen from the dining area, you pass a beautifully lit built–in glass display hutch.

The large and open gourmet kitchen has a window–wrapped nook in one corner next to a niche with a built–in desk. A large center island has a 6–burner cook top and a prep sink, and a raised bar for casual dining. Large picture windows are set behind a triple sink, and a trio of transom windows above hanging cabinets allow in even more natural light to the cooking area. The ceilings in this area of the house are set at a lofty 12′.

Across from the kitchen is a sitting area with a fireplace and a media cabinet flanked by glazed doors on either side that walk out to a curved terrace. The curved terrace connects to the covered terrace with an open semi–circular terrace protruding from it. A pair of French doors located next to the dining nook opens into a light–filled office with windows that look out to the side and rear. Next to the office a hallway with a skylight above leads to a powder room, a laundry room, a mudroom, and an oversized 3 or 4–car garage.

To the right of the living space, a light–filled gallery with a row of skylights in the 13′ ceiling accesses a study through a pair of French doors. The study has windows on four walls, and built–ins along the walls for books. A glazed door flanked by two windows opens to a private outdoor landscaped area with a 5’–high stucco wall surrounding the space. As you turn the corner of the gallery space, you pass three tall windows that bring in sunlight and views to the side, before entering the master suite. (The original design of the house has two steps down to the master bedroom, but you may choose to modify or eliminate the number of steps.)

The master bedroom has a fireplace to warm the room during cooler weather, and windows along three walls for maximum outdoor views. A pair of French doors open onto a private curved terrace with a spa and spiral stairs to the lower level. Double doors open into a huge master bath with two separate vanity areas, a private toilet room, space for a T.V. and a linen closet, and an extra–large shower. [The original homeowners wanted an extra large shower but no tub in the master bath. The architect is happy to modify the plans to add a tub at no extra charge, but you’ll need to place your order by phone and let us know you want the version with the tub.] A pair of doors from the bath opens into a huge walk–in closet. Both the bath area and the closet have skylights for natural light.

After walking down the curved staircase to the lower level, you find yourself in an open family/recreation room space with large picture windows and glazed doors that look and walk out to the rear. A wet bar with a curved counter is located in one corner of the room, and has space for an under counter refrigerator, a sink, and a dishwasher. A privacy wall on the left side of the room is located in front of a bedroom and bathroom door. Bedroom 2 has two wide windows that look out to the rear, as well as a smaller window that looks out to the side. It features a walk–in closet and private access to a full bath. This bath is shared by bedrooms 2 and 3 and has a total of three doors for private access from each bedroom and from the family room.

The lower stairway foyer has two closets and a wide hall that leads to Bedroom 3 and a large mechanical/storage room. You may choose to build this space out (as well as the huge unfinished space on the other side of the family room) for additional rooms, or plan to build a future bath as the original owners did.

To the right of the family room there is a large exercise room with windows that look out to the rear, and another bedroom suite. Bedroom 4 has its own door to the rear, and could be used as an in–law unit or guest suite. It has many windows for outdoor views and light, a walk–in closet, and a luxurious bath with an oval tub that sits under a window, a separate shower, a private toilet room, and a linen closet. Both bedroom 4 and the exercise room have a ceiling height of 10’8″, while most of the other rooms on this level have a 9’10″ceiling.

Brief Description

This gorgeous luxury home was originally designed for a rear sloping lot, and it blends in so well with the natural environment that it has an appearance of being carved out of the existing hillside. The non–rectangular shape of the floor plan allows rooms to have windows on more than one wall, resulting in multiple views and maximum daylight. The front of the house looks to be one–story, but the rear opens up to two stories with an abundance of glazed doors and windows.

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.


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?


    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.

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.
