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.
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.
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.

This unique home features beautiful details both inside and out. Externally, it’s distinguishing elements include a prominent rounded section that contains the spiral staircase to the other levels, multiple rooflines, and the combination of vertical board & batten siding with synthetic stone veneer. The inside is distinguished by tall (10′) and vaulted ceilings, wrap around views, and handsome wood columns and beam work.
The covered front porch is large enough to hold furniture, so you can relax and enjoy the front views. The entry foyer is wide and generous, with an elegant open curved stairwell to the right. On your left as you walk towards the living areas at the rear, you pass a coat closet and a small vestibule outside a powder room. Just beyond the vestibule there’s a beautiful built–in bar with a wrap–around counter, which is conveniently located next to the open gourmet kitchen. All of the livings spaces are open to each other, and enjoy great views to the rear and side.
The U–shaped kitchen wraps around a large island with a prep sink on top. The sinks are placed in one corner beneath a pair of windows that provide natural light along with views to a covered deck with a grill station. An opening between the kitchen and the bar provides access to a large mudroom with a built–in bench and lockers. One door opens to a walk–in pantry, while another opens to a three–car garage with plenty of room for a workshop, if needed.
The dining area is located between the kitchen and the great room. An angled bay at the far end is filled with windows that provide views to and through a patio and covered deck at the rear of the house. The wall between the dining room and the covered grill area has a large window and a glass door for easy access.
The great room is sunken, and features a dramatic ceiling with exposed wood beams that rises to nearly 20′ along the diagonal. Large picture windows fill the outer walls, and windows above them add to the exceptional views. There’s a large fireplace in the corner that can also be enjoyed from the kitchen.
The grand circular stairs rise to a large loft area on the upper level. Doors open to bedrooms 2 and 3, as well as a conveniently located laundry room. Each has its own walk–in closet, and the shared full bath between the two rooms has private sink areas on either end. Both rooms, along with the loft area, enjoy 9′ ceilings. Bedroom 2 has a pair of windows providing views to the side, while Bedroom 3 has a bumped out space with a built–in seat beneath a pair of windows and two more windows in the corner.
As you go down the hall towards the master suite, you pass a wide railing with views to the great room below. The master bedroom is quite spacious, and it has a unique vaulted ceiling that angles to the two far corners. A three–sided bay is filled with glass for light and views, and a fireplace is located next to the bay. The bath area has a large Jacuzzi tub in one corner beneath a glass–block wall, a separate shower with a built–in seat, two sinks, and a private toilet. Next to the bath is a large walk–in closet.
As you descend the stairs to the lower level, you pass a study that is located at the mid–landing. This room has a 10′ ceiling, and a total of four windows facing the front and side. The lower level has a guest bedroom with a full bath, and an open recreation room with a wet bar. A large unfinished space provides storage along with the home’s mechanical systems.

This third version of Summit Views retains the stunning looks and luxurious feel of the original, inside and out. Same gorgeous detailing and finishes; same unique lines and shape. Like version 2, the formal dining room has been removed, with the hearth room taking its place for dining. And the upper floor is nearly identical to the original. But the lower level has a completely different layout. It’s also the smallest of the three, and hence the least expensive to build, coming in at a total of just 3,664 sf for the main and upper levels.
