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.

After coming off of the covered front porch, you enter a foyer space with a stairwell to the left and an open formal dining room to the right. Straight ahead is an open family room with exposed wood beams above. To the left is a kitchen with a walk–in pantry, which is separated from the family room by a center island, and to the right is an impressive fireplace hearth. At the rear is a family dining nook, with windows looking out to the rear terrace. From the dining nook, a small mud hall leads to a small home office, a three–car garage, and a guest suite with a full bath. With its own door to the rear terrace, the guest suite would make an ideal in–law suite as well.
After coming upstairs, the landing opens up to a wide upper loft. A pair of doors leads to the master bedroom suite, which features a sitting room space lined with windows. You pass a walk–in closet as you go towards the master bath, which has a whirlpool tub, a toilet room, and a separate shower. To the left of the stairwell are a full bath, a bedroom, and a huge playroom/recreation room. To the right of the stairwell are a laundry room and fourth bedroom, with its own private full bath. From this bedroom there is also access to attic storage under the slopes of the roof.

This beautiful two–story home has both Craftsman and Tudor influences, resulting in a variety of wood details and trims. The stone at the base grounds the home, while the wood and window designs invite you in. The kitchen and the sunny nook next to it, the family gathering room, and the formal dining room occupy one open space. There's a guest suite on the main level that would work well as an in law unit, and a wrap around terrace at the rear that's accessed from this suite, as well as from the gathering room. The master suite is upstairs, as are two additional bedrooms a large play room above the garage, and a conveniently located laundry.
