excerpt from the August, 2014 issue of Professional Builder Magazine
“Hillside sites demand more attention by their very nature. Builders and designers who deal with such sites on a regular basis emphasize the need for collaboration—particularly between the civil engineer and the architect.”
Best-selling hillside design among production builders
Arched openings over the garage doors and a metal accent roof are just two of the thoughtful exterior details that lend curb appeal to the Silvergate.
The details continue on the interior of the plan. The main level includes a great room and bedroom/study with coffered ceiling details along with an open kitchen and dining room arrangement that simplifies entertaining. The master bedroom features twin walk-in closets and a bay window that easily accommodates a sitting area. Outdoor living space is abundant, with a screen porch off the dining room and an oversized, sky lit covered porch on the rear.
Downstairs is a cozy rec room and two more bedrooms, one with a private bath. The ample unfinished mechanical/storage area can easily be converted to a home theater, exercise area, or for any purpose you desire.
A favorite hillside home design among custom/luxury home builders
Stone and stucco combine with multiple gable peaks and an impressive, front entry to create stunning curb appeal for this European home. The grand foyer greets visitors on the inside, while the dining room and bedroom/study flank the foyer on both sides. Further along, the great room includes a cathedral ceiling, porch access and wall of windows to view outdoor scenery. The breakfast room and kitchen are also open to the great room and one another, simplifying mealtime.
On the other side of the home, a large master suite was designed to pamper the homeowner. A bowed sitting area grants extra space in the bedroom, while the luxurious master bath features a corner shower, large soaking tub, his-and-her vanities and private privy.
In the basement are three bedrooms, each with their own full bath—and added treat! A large rec room with fireplace completes the basement and provides an additional gathering space in the home.
